Live The Life You Have Imagined....

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would take you through the step by step for recreating a layout that I have recently put together for the PaperHaus Magazine blog.

Here is my project showcasing some beautiful 7 Dots Studio Papers from the All I Ever Collection, Manor House Creations Flowers and Twiddleybitz Chipboard.

Remove the middle insert from the Peaceful Place patterned paper to create a frame with the darker color around the outside of the paper.
Ink the inside edge.
Attach with foam tape over the top of the Lazy Afternoon paper.

Trim 3 of the 6" x 6"  squares from Mind Full Of Hopes paper.
Trim approximately a  3" x 12" length from the Sandy Beach paper.
Arrange and attach - refer to the following picture:

Add some thinner banner strips created from the Velveteen paper, sentiment tag and frame and frame  from the 12 x 12 Elements.
Position and attach photo.
Fussy cut floral swirl element from the Sandy Beach paper. Ink the edges. Arrange to come out from a slight angle from the bottom left hand edge of the photo. Attach with foam tape.
Paint chipboard lamp post with picket fence distress paint. When dry add a little definition with walnut stain distress stain.
Position and attach to sit over the left hand edge of the photo.
Add flag/banner elements from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet.

Lightly ink the edges of the decorative ornate frame with walnut stain distress stain. Position and attach over the photo.
Mist White  MHC Springtime and Solitude flowers with graphite glimmer mist. Add a little picket fence distress paint to blue Sweeties flowers to soften. 
Arrange and attach in place.  Tuck in a few White MHC Tweeny Weenies Roses to the floral arrangements.
 Add extra sticker and sentiment elements.
Trim the thin brown frame from the Soft Blanket frame. Tuck in and attach around the inside edge of the darker outside frame element previously attached.
With a border punch, punch along the 12" edge of the Loved And Be Loved paper. Trim and attach - refer to layout picture for placement.
Happy Creating!
