CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Cut out a 4"x6" piece of paper from the kraft cardstock.
2. Cut out 3 pieces of 4"x6" rectangles from the coredinations paper.
3. Cut out a 4"x6" piece of paper from the french vanilla cardstock.
4. Using Sentimentals cartridge and music note pattern paper, cut 3.95"x4.70" {frame3} layer (p. 30 of handbook).
5. Using Sentimentals cartridge and blue and white polka dot pattern paper, cut 4"x4.58" {CrwStmp2} shadow (p. 50 of handbook).
6. Using Sentimentals cartridge and grunge paper, cut .98"x2.25" {key1} layer with the multi-cut setting on 3 (p. 36 of handbook).


STEPS:

1. Using the Cuttlebug die-cut machine and the Sentimentals embossing folders emboss the three pieces of coredinations paper. Use the sanding block to sand the embossed coredinations paper. Adhere the coredinations paper onto the photo tray as shown in the project image.

2. Sponge the edges of the kraft cardstock with the pumice stone distress ink then adhere it onto the upper right corner window of the photo tray. Sponge the edges of the music note {frame3} with the pumice stone distress ink then use the pop up dimensionals to adhere the it onto the photo tray. Adhere the 97% Complete sticker onto the music note pattern paper using pop up dimensionals. Attach the game spinners to the Time piece with a brad then adhere it to the music note pattern paper with pop dimensionals.

3. Use the distress tool to distress the edges of the french vanilla cardstock. Crumple the french vanilla cardstock then use the pumice stone distress in to ink the edges and rub over raised areas of the french vanilla cardstock. Adhere the cardstock to the upper left corner window of the photo tray. Sponge the edges of the polka dot {CrwStmp2} with the pumice stone distress ink then use the pop up dimensionals to adhere the it onto the photo tray. Add a 97% complete sticker to the center of {CrwStmp2}. Add the ribbon near the bottom of the sticker. Apply another circular sticker over the ribbon then adhere a circular fragment onto the circular sticker with glossy accents.

4. Use a sponge to apply the rusty hinge distress ink to the grunge paper key to prime it then apply aged mahogany distress ink over it to get the desired shade of red.

5. In the last window of the photo tray use various stickers to create a desired arrangement. For added interest use glossy accents to adhere a circular fragment to one of the stickers. Adhere the grunge paper {key1} in the center of the arrangement using glossy accents. Using glossy accents adhere the mini pin to the arrangement.

6. Add your favorite photos to the windows with the coredinations paper.
