Zarah- Love Forever


By: Zarah S Peterson

3 wallet size photos, matted on white cardstock, or matted before printing
white cardstock from Bazzill
Patterned paper: Backside of Everyday Favourite Shirt/MME, a strip of a green paper (Boo to You) from My Mind's Eye, Mulberry Road/Fancy Pants , a strip of Lizzie Geometric Flower for the peek through at the top, Ruby Polkadot Stripe/Making Memories  and a piece of Abbey Road/My Mind's Eye (front and back) for the circles.

I used a scalloped Bazzill as a template for the scallops on the Mulberry Road paper and a Whirleybird/Friends Forever by MME as a template for the shaped papers. (I cut one the same size, and one just inside that).

There's also a journaling spot from My Mind's Eye as photo mat on the middle photo.

Tools: Edge scraper/scissors, Fiskars edge punch

Alphas: Thickers from American Crafts and letter stickers from a Doodlebug Inc headlines.

Embellishments: buttons, glossy accents (or other glue that dries transparent), fluid chalk/ink for the edges, a brown pen for the faux stitching, a month-spot, a "cherish-plate", pins, lace, brads, a piece of lace, a piece of ribbon, string, a cardboard button, white flowers, raindots and a shiny heart from the local toy store.

How to:

1. Shape cut the two papers. One slightly smaller. (Rough up & ink all edges if desired.) Mount them on top of the Bazzill, and push them to the right. The bottom paper stuck out a little, which I cut off. Rough up the Bazzill and tear one bit open. Add a piece of paper underneath the tear.

2. Trace the scallops on the blue paper & cut that out. Tear the lower edge. Mount on top of the two shape cut papers. Punch out the scallops on the green paper and add that. (Rough up & ink all edges if desired.)

Adhere the lace and the ribbon on top. Fasten with brads for extra secutiry & a nice finish.

3. Mount the photo on the journalingspot and then add them all to the layout.

4. Embellish with die cut or hand cut circles, flowers and buttons. Add pins, the title and a written journaling spot (I used a piece of a journalingspot that I cut as a circle and then tore a piece off of.)

Add the pins, raindots and glossy accent dots.

5. You're done! :D
