BACKGROUND:
1. Using your two Green Cardstock papers, ink all the way around them for backgrounds

CREATE FAKE ENVELOPES:
2. Using template, cut out 2 x BLUE and 1 x PINK envelope pieces.  (should be 7cm wide)
3.  Fold over the top half and ink all around.
4. Using a 1.5cm diameter circle punch, punch out 6 BROWN circles and using your brads, adhere these to the top flap of your envelopes and to the body of your envelopes.  Only use brads to adhere them, NOT glue or tape.
5. Now divide your ribbon into three pieces and gently slide under your BROWN circles so they wrap around the brad, and once even tie in the middle.

CREATE YOUR TITLE BANNER:
6. Using your two 7.5cm strips of DOT paper, adhere these 2.5cm from the bottom of the layout along both pages.

NOTE:  On the right page, the fake pockets are stuck behind your title bar, so DO NOT put tape along where the pockets need to tuck in.  Refer example for placement of your tape.  

7. Now adhere your four scalloped CHEVRON strips along the top and bottom of these strips so your scallop edges face upwards along top and down along the bottom.
8. Use your four 1cm BLUE strips to cover where the papers meet along the top and bottom of the strip.

LEFT PAGE:
9. Adhere your 11cm STRIPED paper about 0.5cm above your TITLE strip horizontally.
10. Now using your 15cm x 19cm BIG FLOWER paper that has been scalloped along top and left edges, adhere this to your top left corner, so your scalloped edges face the outside of your layout. (leave about 0.5cm gaps top and side)
11. Stick your 13cm x 18cm BROWN photo mat to the top of this BIG FLOWER paper and adhere your BLUE broken corner on pop dots to top left corner.
12. Adhere your 13cm x 9cm PINK photo mat ontop of your STRIPED paper so you have even sides (refer example)
13. Cut your PINK Flower Frame in HALF and using your printed BLUE quote, adhere this to the bottom half of the frame as per example.  Adhere your frame to the top of the layout. I added some extra cutout flowers to the quote.
14. To your title bar, add two of your 6cm x 6cm PINK photo mats (raise on foamcore) to the far left.  Next raise your BIG TREE on foam dots and adhere next to the photo mats.  Line up your TITLE and cut through at the “O” of GROW.. adhere with TOMBOW to your Title bar over page pages. 

RIGHT PAGE:
15. Adhere your 11cm BIG FLOWER paper about 0.5cm above your TITLE strip horizontally.
16. Now adhere your 15cm x 9cm striped paper to the top right of your layout (scallops to face top and right edge)
17. Using your remaining BROWN photo mat, adhere this to the top left of layout (about 0.5 from top and left edge of this page).  Next this, to the top right, adhere your final PINK photo mat, about 1cm from top of layout.
18. Adhere your PINK QUOTE behind your remaining piece of frame and stick to the far right of layout (about 2cm from top edge) Add more cut out flowers to quote.
19. Add your two remaining Trees to your TITLE bar, raise them on pop dots for dimension.
20. Tuck in your three Fake Envelopes and adhere them on the back to your layout so they don’t fall out.
21. Finish off layout by adding your butterfly also raised on pop dots. 

TEMPLATE:  JUST ENLARGE TO SIZE.
