How to: Print a photo at ~3.5×4.5". Trim a piece of white cardstock into a similar size as the photo. Lightly adhere the large DIY alpha stickers to the white cardstock spelling "always". Spray the cardstock piece with blue mist. Allow to dry for a few minutes and then peel up the stickers and discard them. Trim the Stitched Loom paper to 8.5×11" size. Cut apart the patterned strips from the Stitched Thrifted paper, ink the edges of them, and layer them over one another at the bottom of the background paper. Write journaling over the top of the misted word then adhere the misted block and the photo towards the bottom of the page. Cut the "work hard" design out of the Stitched tag, staple a fabric sticker to it, and add it to the upper right corner of the page, layering a wood veneer frame over it. Add a date label to the layering in the corner. Add another strip of pattern from the Thrifted paper to the top border of the page. Add journaling and a Stitched transparent phrase sticker to the strip. Use the Stitched transparent alpha to spell out "always" in three different colors and add them to the page in a visual triangle. Finish up by adding a Stitched foam phrase "Today" Thicker and Be Merry alpha stickers above the photo, and more Be Merry alpha Thickers along the bottom border.
