Supplies Needed:
  • One sheet of 12x12 cardstock in Lavender
  • One sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock in white
  • Wavy ~ border ruler
  • Green Fine Tip marker
  • Yellow Brush Tip
  • Lavender Brush tip

The following stickers:

  • RA LANG, 5 Eggs (I modular has 6 eggs)
  • RA LANG, 2 Standing up Bunnies (1 modular)
  • RA LANG, 6 Baby Chicks (1 modular) (Note: If you do not have the RA LANG stickers, try to use some stickers close to those I described.)
  • Glue stick or photo splits to mount cardstock to 12 x 12.

 

 
  1. Take your 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock and draw a wavy line with the wavy border ruler down the right (or the left) side of your page. Approximately 3/4 inch from edge.
  2. Draw little squiggles off the edges of the drawn wave here and there along each side.
  3. Draw little tiny leaves here and there along each side of the wave.
  4. Take your Yellow brush tip marker and place one dot on each side of the inside curves of the border. (I came out with a count of 12 yellow dots along my border, top to bottom.)
  5. Take your Lavender brush tip marker and place five dots around each of the yellow dots to create a flower. (No need to go up against the yellow, it is okay to leave space between. It is your choice.)
  6. Mount your 8 1/2 x 11 page on top of the 12 x 12 Lavender cardstock approximately a 1/4" to a 1/2" from the left or right edge of the Lavender page. Note: if you placed your border on the left side mount the page on the left side of the Lavender cardstock. And likewise, if you have the border design on the right side, mount your 8 1/2 x 11 on the right side of the lavender cardstock. (Your white cardstock should now be centered top to bottom and offset left or right, which ever side you designed your border.)
  7. Sticker time! Take the two bunnies and place the first one on the edge of the bottom corner of your white cardstock right next to your border, placing his feet below the white page onto the lavender. Place the other bunny in the other corner on the lavender page.
  8. Next, take the eggs and starting at the bottom above the bunny, place the eggs on angles over the wavy line to the top of your page. (Mine are about two inches apart.)
  9. Next, Take the chicks and spread them out across the bottom between the two bunnies. I placed the two chicks that look like they are eating together and placed tiny yellow dots under them to look like they are eating corn feed.
  10. Last step, take your green fine tip marker and draw little blades of grass in little groups along the bottom from bunny to bunny.
  11. Your page is now ready for pictures and journaling.
