I started with a white background. A 5.5x12 rectangle of dark orange was trimmed with decorative scissors. Two 4x6 photos were trimmed to 4x4 and all 3 photos were matted on black and attached on the diagonal to leave room for the title, journaling and decorative elements. The title was taken from the top left photo and celebrating a birthday, and was cut from white vinyl. I used google translate to know how to write "Happy Birthday" in Japanese, screenshot it to upload to cricut, and cut it out of black vinyl. The chopsticks were cut from black, gold and green vinyl and placed in the corner.
