The Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (137780) contains many prints of photos that are perfect to represent the four seasons. I picked four designs that looked good in a horizontal direction: the pine needles for Winter, the grass for Spring, the pebbles for Summer and the sawed stumps for Fall.
I placed the photo prints of Designer Series Paper (DSP) on a page of Pistachio Pudding from the 12” x 12” In Color 2013-2015 Card Stock Assortment (131195) and found they didn’t fit the way I wanted, so I trimmed them to 5-1/2” x 4-1/2”. Each sheet is 6-1/2” x 4-1/2”, so you get good-sized scraps! The DSP was adhered about 1/2” from the two edges when I positioned them in the corners.
The 8” square layer of Crisp Cantaloupe from the same Card Stock Assortment formed the base for my photo mat. There is room for four photos in the layout. I used the backs of the picture DSP sheets to make photo mats 3-3/4” square. Four pieces of 3-1/2” square 12” x 12” Whisper White Card Stock (124302) were mounted on the mats to become placeholders for the photos.
I used Fast Fuse Adhesive (129026) to attach everything, so the page is almost flat. The embellishments are punched from scraps of card stock or DSP and adhered at the corners of the photo mats with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). I always attach them so I can slip a photo underneath.
Other Supplies Used: Daffodil Delight (119683), Garden Green (102584) & Real Red (102482) 8-1/2” x 11” Card Stock; Bird Builder (117191), Mosaic (131267) & Elegant Butterfly (127526) Punches; Big Shot™ Die-Cutting Machine (113439); Leaves #2 Bigz Die (retired); Gold Stampin’ Dazzle Marker (133634)
Patterns can be printed as a sheet or in quarter-page sizes as each page of a card on a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2” x 11” Card Stock (100730). I’d let the ink dry before you start punching or die-cutting.
