To create this layout, you will need:
- Botanical Bliss Paper Pack from the Cardstock Buffet
- Copper, Iron Gray, Juniper Green and Suede Cardstock from the Cardstock Buffet or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Custom Cutting System with Circle Patterns or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)

Step 1: Use a sheet of Juniper Green Cardstock as the base for this layout.
Step 2: Trim a sheet of floral patterned paper to measure 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and mount it on the base. Cut a 4″ x 11-1/2″ strip of gray mini floral patterned paper and adhere it to the top of the floral piece. Cut a 3/4″ x 11-1/2″ strip of butterfly patterned paper and adhere it just below the gray piece. Cut a 3/4″ x 11-1/2″ strip of white dot patterned paper and adhere it to the bottom edge of the floral paper.
Step 3: Punch two borders using the Gears Chain Border Maker Cartridge with both Iron Gray and Suede Cardstock. Adhere the gray border just below and underneath the butterfly strip. Adhere the suede border just above and underneath the white dots strip.
Step 4: Cut three 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ square pieces of white striped patterned paper. Top each with 3″ x 3″ square photos. Mount on the gray mini floral piece as shown.
Step 5: Using the outside of the largest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle with distressed gray patterned paper. Align the circle shape (gray side down) in the middle of the Custom Cutting System Mat. Using a ruler and pencil, draw lines as shown to divide the circle into eight equal sections. Holding the Medallion Punch upside down (so you can see what you’re doing), slide the circle shape in about 1/2″ and positioned so the pencil line is in the middle and punch. Repeat along all seven of the remaining lines to create a gear shape.
Step 6: Using the outside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle with newsprint patterned paper. With the Green Blade, cut a circle with Copper Cardstock. Mount the newsprint circle on the copper circle and then on the gear shape. Trim 1-1/2″ from the right side of the shape and mount on the page as shown. Journal as desired.
