Next, step adhere all the punched circles onto white cardstock. This will create a random background that is really interesting. Choose a few to raise with 3-D adhesive. Be sure to leave the center open for your photo.

Using the two 4x4 photos and white cardstock, matte the photos next to each other and adhere to the center of your layout. If needed, move some of the raised circles so they can overlap the photos.

Create your title from a large sticker. Place it onto white cardstock first and then trim it out with scissors. Using the two 4x4 photos and white cardstock, matte the photos next to each other and adhere to the center of your layout. If needed, move some of the raised circles (again) so they can overlap the photos.

Now it’s time to add some stitching. This can be by machine or hand. Randomly sew around and between the circles on the layout, going around it two times.
