  1. Secure the 001 and 002 pages together at the back.

  3. Using a craft knife, cut around the circle and its flowers on the left and right side so that the spotted paper can fit underneath it.
  4. Using the stencil and modelling paste, stencil into the centre of the circle as well as across the top left of your layout.
  5. Allow to dry partially and then place the gilding flakes onto the modelling paste until it is COMPLETELY dry. Once dry, and using a fine brush, brush off the excess gilding flakes.
  6. Position and secure the spotted paper on either side of the circle on the right page of your layout.
  7. Matt your large photograph, first with the pink side of 008 and then with some grey cardstock.
  8. Secure your photograph onto your left page, adding lace beneath it.

  11. Add a piece of 007 measuring 8,5 x 28cm, which has a piece of the hexagon on it, to the right of the spotted paper.
  12. Add a piece of grey ribbon to the right of this paper, knotted at both ends.
  13. Add the damask pink strip from the back of 007 to the right of the ribbon, overlapping it slightly.
  14. Secure your large photograph to your page, overlapping the pink strip slightly.
  15. Add another piece of the leftover floral strip from the back of 007 to the right of your photograph.
  16. Cut a circle out of the grey cardstock which will fit inside the inner circle of your stencil on the right page.
  17. Cut another smaller circle from 008 which will be your photo matt.
  18. Cut your photograph to fit inside this circle and secure to your page, raising it to give dimension.
  19. Tie a double bow out of the grey ribbon and secure beneath the round photograph.
  20. Cut out the clock (from grey cardstock) and leaves (from 006) die-cuts.
  21. Using an embossing ink pen, place the ink onto the numbers of the clock, cover the numbers only with Copper Embossing Powder and heat until the powder has melted.
  22. Secure the clock to your left page.
  23. Press any metal embellishments as well as your chipboard title into the Embossing Ink Pad, cover with Copper Embossing Powder and heat until the powder has melted.
  24. Add all flowers, leaves, buttons and other embellishments to your layout as desired.
  25. Add plastic domes onto some stickers, cutting around the dome before placing onto your layout.
  26. Add some of the Nuvo confetti circles to some gel medium and add these onto your layout as desired, adding some into the centre of large flowers if so desired.
  27. Place a bit of the Black Pearl All Purpose Ink onto a craft sheet, spritz with water and then, using a small paintbrush, lightly splash some of the ink onto your layout as desired.
  28. Your layout is now complete!
