Step 1: Use a piece of Blue Solid Cardstock as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a piece of green geometric leaves paper to 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″. Fold down the top-right corner at about 3″ and fold under the lower-left corner at about 3″. Mount on the base.

Step 3: Using the Five Leaf Punch, punch 15 leaves from Light Lime and Dark Green Solid Cardstocks and other various green papers. Lightly trace the outer edge of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern onto the lower-left edge of the layout with a pencil. Layer and adhere the leaves along the traced circle to create a wreath.

Step 4: Cut two 6″ x 4-1/2″ pieces of green plaid paper. Crop two photos to 5-1/2″ x 4″ and mount on the green plaid pieces. Adhere to the layout. Cut a 1-1/4″ square of Blue Solid Cardstock. Cut into two triangles and place one on each photo as shown. Using the outside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a photo into a circle. Mount on the layout.

Step 5: Adhere the “Oh happy day”, “Joy”, and “Fantastic day” Must Have Laser Title Embellishments to the layout. Punch two more additional leaves with the Five Leaf Punch and add to the top of the layout.

Step 6: Journal as desired.
