See picture for how I arranged the pieces to the cardstock base. I used a lot of Crumb Cake Adhesive-Backed Speckle Dots on my sampler, use the picture of the completed sampler as reference for placing the Speckle Dots.

My sampler is in the magnetic frame from the Celebrate Today Magnetic Board Kit.
