To create this layout, you will need:
- Imagine That! Paper Pack
- Imagine That! Stickers
- Imagine That! Layered Embellishments
- Imagine That! Variety Mat Pack
- Goldenrod Cardstock
- Original Border Maker System with the Star Banner Chain Border Maker Cartridge
- 2-Way Corner Rounder
- 12-inch Straight Trimmer
- Personal Trimmer
- All-Purpose Scissors
- Tape Runner
- Precision Point Adhesive Pen

Step 1: Use the sunshine patterned paper for your base. Cut the cloud patterned paper to measure 11″ x 11″ and adhere to the centre of your base.
Step 2: Cut a piece of Goldenrod Cardstock into a rectangle that measures 11″ x 4″. Use the 2-Way Corner Rounder to round the corners and adhere it horizontally across the bottom of the layout, approximately 1-3/4″ from the bottom of the cloud patterned paper.
Step 3: Cut two rectangles from the black patterned paper to measure 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. Mat a photo on each of these mats using your Tape Runner. Adhere the matted photos at an angle 1-3/4″ from the bottom of the Goldenrod Cardstock for the first photo and 1″ from the bottom of the Goldenrod Cardstock for the second matted photo.
Step 4: Mount one mat at the top of the layout, tucking it behind the photos as shown. Adhere a 4″ x 6″ photo above the matted photos at the top of the layout, tucking the bottom half of the photo behind the others. Cut a strip from the sunshine patterned mat to measure 4″ x 3/4″ and adhere it across the top photo.
Step 5: Using a piece of the black patterned paper and the Original Border Maker System with the Star Banner Chain Border Maker Cartridge, punch out a 12-inch border. Then, cut it in half using the All-Purpose Scissors and adhere it to the two photos at the bottom of the layout using a Precision Point Adhesive Pen.
Step 6: Embellish your layout by adding stickers, embellishments and gems. Make sure to use Foam Squares on some for added dimension. Finish by using a Black Dual-Tip Pen to hand journal your story on the journaling mat.
