Assembly Guide:
  1. Base - Use (2) 12X12 Hollyhock Card Stock for the base of the pages. Stamp using the heart image from the SOTM stamp set in Hollyhock Ink Pad.
  2. Borders - Using the large floral sheet from the Brushed paper packet, cut one piece at 12" X 4", 12" X 5" and the bottom strip at 1/2". Attach the 12"X4" piece to the left page layout and add the bottom strip at the inner edge of the border. Adhere the 12" X 5" to the right side of the right page layout base using the opposite side of the paper packet.
  3. Title - The "Sweet Moments" title was created on the Cricut Design Space using the Artbooking Cartridge and Cooper Black System Font. Here's the link to the title I created on Design Space <Click Here>
  4. Photo 1 - Cut a 3" X 3" Pear card stock and add photo (trim to 2.75" X 2.75").  I stamped the "cutie pie" sentiment on a White Daisy card stock using the Pacifica Pigment Ink and added the Ranger clear embossing powder.  I used a craft heater to set the embossed image.  I cut the sentiment and added a mat using Pacifica card stock.
  5. Photo 2 & 3 - On the left side scrapbook page, cut a 10" X 7" piece of Pear card stock and stamp using one of the cup cake stamp images in Pear Ink to create a back ground image.  Add (2) 4" X 6" photos.  I stamped (2) of the cupcake images and colored using ShinHan Alcohol Markers.  I added a red sequin to the top of each cup cake and used the Clear Wink of Stella Brush Markers to add some shimmer to the cup cakes. 
  6. Photo 4, 5 & 6 - On the right side scrapbook page, cut a 10" X 8" piece of Pear card stock and stamp using one of the cup cake stamp images in Pear Ink to create a back ground image.  Add (3) 5" X 3.5" photos.  
  7. Accents - I stamped the "sweetest" on a White Daisy card stock using the Pacifica Pigment Ink and added the Ranger clear embossing powder.  I used a craft heater to set the embossed image.I cut the sentiment and added a mat using Pacifica card stock.  I cut (2 ) banners using pink glitter paper and adhered to the right side of the layout.  For the "hey there cupcake" I stamped the image on a Pear card stock using the Hollyhock Pigment Ink and added the Ranger clear embossing powder.  I used a craft heater to set the embossed image. I cut the sentiment and added a mat using black card stock to create the banner. I stamped (1) of the cupcake images and colored using ShinHan Alcohol Markers.  I added a red sequin to the top of thecup cake and used the Clear Wink of Stella Brush Markers to add some shimmer to the cup cake. 
  8. Sentiment -  I stamped the "Everywhere you go.." sentiment on a White Daisy card stock using the Hollyhock Pigment Ink and added the Ranger clear embossing powder.  I used a craft heater to set the embossed image. I cut the sentiment into a 3 X 3 box and added a mat using pacifica card stock and layered another mat using the Brushed paper packet paper. I finished the sentiment by stamping the heart image and colored it with Dark Pink Wink of Stella and adding liquid glass on top of the image to create a 3-d effect.
I recommend using CTMH Liquid Glass or Bonding Memories glue pen to adhere the layers and 3-D Foam tape to give the accent frame dimensions. Feel free to add your own touch to this quick and easy scrapbook layout.
