Bazzill Cardstock, white (My photo is framed in Photoshop, but you can also choose to mat it on black cardstock)
Patterned papers: Making Memories Ledger Combo Pattern Paper, Daisy D's Colonial Paisley, Fancy Pants Kewl Splendid Paper, Fancy Pants Mulberry Road Romance Paper
Paint: Making Memories Springtime - Sky paint, Making Memories In Bloom - Cornflower paint and crackle mediumEmbellishments: Junkitz Halloween Painted Book Platez Cream/Green, ribbon from Making Memories Trim Card Poolside Paperie, a journalingspot, lace, staples, home made pins, Glossy Accents from Ranger, misc flowers, bling, ink, pen
Other: Making Memories Craft Knife for cutwork, a Prima Marketing-bling backside, Fiskars scallop punch
Paint the Prima backside with the Cornflower paint, then the crackle medium and top with the sky paint. Let dry.
Cut one piece of the Ledger combo paper and rough up the edges. Ink them if you want to. Adhere the photo on top. Also cut a strip of the Mulberry Road Romance paper & scallop one edge. Rough up & ink if desired.
Cut a piece of the Kewl Splendid paper (backside used) and, again, rough up & ink if wanted.
Mount the papers as shown on LO.
Ink edges of Bazzill and adhere the patterned paper stack & photo to it.
Now, take out your craft knife and the Colonial Paisleypaper. Cut out details.
Add the ribbon (with a knot on the lower piece), the journaling spot and the lace. Staple down.
Add bookplate and stick the cutout inside it. Glue down. Then stick small alpha pieces inside to show date of picture. Add flower, bling and pins.
Lastly, stick your title down.
I usually put mine on the upper edge of a ruler to get a straight edge, and to be able to move it around to see where it fits best, then I stick it down.
Add Glossy Accents to the cutout details.
You're done! :D
