Step 1: Use a piece of white dandelions designer paper as the base for this layout. Cut a 2″ x 12″ strip with stripes designer paper and adhere on the left edge of the layout.
Step 2: Using the wavy edge of the 12-inch Decorative Trimmer, cut six 12″ x 1/8″ strips with White Solid Cardstock. Choose several designer and tonal papers. With each, cut a wavy edge, then rotate it to the opposite side, align the low edge of the wave at the 1-1/2″ mark and cut again so that the strip has wide spots and narrow spots. Cut apart the “swells” and adhere one row of various hued pieces along the striped piece. Adhere a white strip over both sides. Continue filling in the spots until you have five columns as shown.
Step 3: Cut a 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece with olive green diamonds tonal paper. With the 2-Way Corner Rounder, round the corners of a 6″ x 4″ photo and mount on top. Cut a 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece with each violet basketweave and coral basketweave tonal papers. Crop two photos to 4″ x 4″, round the corners with the 2-Way Corner Rounder and mount on the squares. Adhere all on the layout as shown.
Step 4: Using the inside of the medium Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut a circle with White Solid Cardstock. Mount the “All things grow with love” sticker on top. Adhere, along with other stickers and embellishments, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.
Step 5: Journal as desired.
