11. Now take this arrangement of die-cuts and work up the page, so select something that is taller than it is wide and attach that, tucking the edges under or over other elements.
12. Use the washi tape, ribbon or baker's twine in three places on the page: once in the far corner of the photos...
13. ...and once either side within the embellishment area.
14. Select smaller shapes to adhere on top of the tape (or ribbon or twine), with pop dots.
15. It's okay if the smaller die-cuts seem a bit random. We're aiming for a good match in colour and size. As long as they don't completely contradict the theme of your page, they will probably work!
16. If there is something you want to include but the size isn't of the right proportion for your layout, remember you can always make a piece smaller with scissors, punches or dies.
17. And that way two seemingly random things can be less random when a motif is repeated, like the two birds here. But that repetition isn't a requirement - just useful if you spot a good match in your stash.
18. Add the title with the letter stickers.
19. If the font is very bold and easy to read, you can scatter the title throughout your die-cut collage. Fancier fonts or more complicated title wordings won't work this way - you will need to bring the words closer together to keep them legible.
20. Complete the page with your writing and use the smaller letter stickers for names, dates or smaller words in your title. (Confession: I planned to use the small letter stickers for my date and I'm missing a few key letters and numbers for that! So I've written it by hand this time which means the little letters I put in my kit didn't make it to the page. Sad times, I know.)
