Diagonally place large squares between stencil shapes and emboss large heart shape. Repeat for second large square. Place small square between stencil shape and emboss medium heart shape. Lightly chalk onto each heart shape after embossing.

Adhere 3 squares to cranberry cardstock. Trim cardstock around each square, leaving approximately a 1/8"border.

Adhere photo layers and heart layers to background paper. Adhere lilac strip to background paper.

Adhere vellum paper over white cardstock on cranberry piece by punching holes in each corner of vellum piece through cranberry cardstock. Insert eyelet into each hole. Flip layers over onto craft mat. Insert eyelet tool into backside of eyelet. Gently tap 2 - 3 times onto eyelet tool with hammer, or until backside of eyelet begins to curl over.
