Step 1 & 2

Cut 11 1/2" square AG1187. Set aside the 1/2" strips that are cut off the sides for the second page and the card.

Cut a 12" x 3" strip from the bottom edge of both sheets of AG1181 and set aside for the second page.

From one of the remaining pieces, cut an 11 1/2" x 9" piece.

Score and fold back 1/2" from the long top edge.
Use a wavy ruler, cutter, or large scallop scissors to cut the long lower edge. [The wavy ruler I used is made by Fiskars and I purchased it at Michale's craft store.]
Then cut two 5" x 9" pieces from the second remaining sheet of AG1181. Score and fold both pieces lengthwise at 1/2", 1", 1", 1", and 1/2". Fold the 1/2" folds back and accordion fold the 1" score lines. These pieces make the “springs” that give dimension to the awnings.
To attach the springs to the sides of the awning, place adhesive along the top 1/2" fold and with the pattern facing out, adhere along the right and left side of the large awning aligning the edges below the top 1/2" fold of the awning.
With the spring pieces folded in place, trim along the bottom edge where they extend beyond the awning to make matching scallops.
Adhere to the top edge of the 11 1/2" square AG1187 (step 1) by folding the top 1/2" fold over the top of the square and adhering in place. Adhere the back 1/2" folds of the springs to the back of the square on each side
Step 3
For the smaller awning, cut an 11 1/2" x 3" strip AG1183. Score and fold back 1/2" from the top edge.
Cut a scallop edge along the bottom edge.

For the springs cut two 3" squares from AG1183.

With the stripes vertical, score at 1/2", 1", and 1/2". Fold at the 1/2" score lines back and at the 1" score line forward.

Repeat the steps for attaching the large springs to attach these springs to the small awning.
Adhere to the top edge of the large awning by folding the 1/2" flap over the top and adhering in place. Adhere the back of the 1/2" fold of the springs on top of the large awning.
Step 4
Center and adhere the 11 1/2" square with the awnings to AG1185.
From the second sheet of AG1185, cut a 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" photo mat and a 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" journaling mat. Use a corner rounder punch as desired
Rub sentiments and umbrella on ivory cardstock and cut out. [I cut a 1X4.75 peice for the saying.]

Adhere to layout with foam squares.

Done!
