2.  While canvas is drying, please take Rustic Alphabet stamp and stamp LOVE  in different CS for each letter
3.  cut out each letter
4.  Using Spring colors, ink the edges of your cut-out letters to give a distressed effect.  You can drag the letters in the stamp pad or run the edge of your marker along the edge of the letter.
5.  Cut your Flowered B and T into 10x10
6.  Cut your Diamond B and T into 5x10  (you will need a piece of this 2%u201D wide by 7.5%u201D Long)
7.  Cut Sunkiss Yellow CS 2.5 x 6 inches
8.  Also cut a 6x8 piece to be used a little further down for photo mat
9.  Canvas should now be dry.  
10.  Adhere white grosgrain ribbon around outside edge of canvas
11.  Then turn your canvas over and put Photo Hangers into back of canvas (I just pushed mine through)
12.  On your Yellow strip of CS you just cut, please stamp some doodling, flowers, etc onto this.
13.  distress your edges of the yellow cs and then corner round
14.  Take your LOVE letters and use pop dots %u2013 this will give dimension.   Adhere the letters to yellow CS

17.  Take a Flower Stamp and ink it in Amethyst and then stamp on Linen
18.  Cut out your flower (you will notice a slight difference on the one I did, sorry I only had a darker linen color on hand.)
19.  I punched out blue, gold & silver metal flowers  please adhere with liquid glass
20.  Take a piece of white hemp about 7" in length or so and then take your dauber and lay the string on the Key Lime ink pad and color it.   (clean off dauber in the dbl. scrubber when finished) - let string dry.
21.  Cut a 7x9 photo mat (my color was Key Lime)
22.  sand the mats and then corner round
23.  Then take the flourish stamp and stamp away, practice your doodling as well.   You can see that I stamped the keylime and then took the yellow cs and stamped as well, gives some definition.
24.  Pretend sewing using ruler go down the edge of the yellow cs and dot with marker and then join like a thread
25.  Adhere yellow cs to keylime cs flip over and then take the 2 x 7.5" B and T from step 6, flip it over so we have the pink side and adhere to keylime cs.
26.  Take a 6.5 x 5.5 piece of Amethyst paper distress and round the corners & then mark along the bottom at 1.5, 3.5 & 5.5  this is where you will place the brads
27.  Flip over this piece of paper and at the very top, you will adhere magnets on the back using the mini glue dots - This will make your canvas interchangeable; you can constantly add new pictures and matting .... SURPRISE
28.  Flip over your canvas and the magnets will just Magnetize thru the canvas - VOILA
29.  You will have leftover CS  you can take 3x3 pieces and distress with sanding and ink edges & then corner round, you can use one magnet per 3x3.
30.  1 rhinestone flower, a metal flower and adhere to the polka dot ribbon.    Also adhere your hemp and canvas flower on B&T as well.
31.  You will need 18 inches of white organza %u2013 tie to photo hanger
32.  I had a little leftover piece so I tied it around my O
33.  To curl the ends of the ribbon giving it a great look, take your embossing gun and heat the ends .. be careful not to melt them ... you will see the ribbon curl.

Voila ... you have a finished piece of art.
