Tell the Story by ELAINE KING

Use the Simple Stories Green Gingham sheet as the background. 
Cut out an irregular shape of the green Grasshopper cardstock and then layer the white card stock on top, cutting slightly smaller to leave a green border.
Faux stitch all around two edges of the white card stock. To do this, I drew a faint pencil just inside the edge of the white, and then used my Tim Holtz Retractable Pick to make a series of holes along the line. I then used a black fineliner to join the holes up to create the ‘stitches’.
I then cut a 7” x 5” rectangle of the Celebrate Life paper to place beneath the photos, and I inked the edges with a black Ranger Distress Ink using an ink dauber. 
I double layered the photos, using offcuts of the white and green card stock, and layered those on top of the rectangle of patterned paper.
I then cut sections from the Elements cut apart sheet, (particularly choosing ones that had black and green in them), as well as highlighting with some pink and yellow flowers. I cut these out leaving a black border around those that had it. I then placed these around the photos and I added leaves from the Celebrate Life that I had cut out.
I then added a selection of rub-on butterflies and stickers from the 49 and Market washi tape stickers roll which is in addition to your kit.
I also cut a small piece of the gingham paper from the left-hand side edge, and added a further cut out from the Elements paper (after backing it with white cardstock), and added stickers from the American crafts Perfect Day sticker set and a rub on butterfly from the kit.
I then finished off by adding a title from the American Crafts Perfect Day sticker set, and added Vicki Boutin Where to Next puffy stickers around the clusters.
