Cut a mat from 20 x 30 cm (8 x 12 inches), you will need 2.
Use your square punch (2 inch) and punch out 48 squares.
Distress all the edges with your paper distresser.
Cut circles out of white bazzill (I used a coluzzle) outline them with a black marker.
Cut your pictures with the square punch.
Outline them with a white marker.
Stamp with the calendar stamp the names of the months and journaling blocks.
Now stack the squares, add picture with circle and once you adhered everything, make little dots with the dimensional pearls.
Write the highlights of each month on your journaling block and add a strip with the coordinating month.
Adhere them to your page.

Outline the edge of your paper with a black pen. Cut flowers from your patterned paper and adhere them to the upper line.
Highlight parts of the flowers with stickles.
Adhere the title at the bottom.
