Designer's Tip: I inked the white doilies (direct-to-paper) with the Deep Lagoon Fluid Chalk ink pad for great color that repeats the teal color in the background paper. I layered the silhouette Floral Boutique Foil Die-Cuts embellishment over an inked doily, and added Dazzle stickers to the ends to frame it.
- Mat the 6"x 4" photo on Boutique pink, leaving a 1/4" border. Glue a 1/4" wide Boutique green/pink flourishes strip even with the right edge of the mat. Mat on Boutique brown swirls paper, leaving a 1/16" border. Glue corners only to the Boutique flowers and butterflies background paper, 5/8" from the right side and 7/8" from the top. Mat remaining photo on Boutique green/pink houndstooth paper leaving a ¼" border. Mat on Boutique brown swirls paper leaving a 1/16" border. Glue corners only to the page, 1" from the right side and 1 1/2" from the bottom.
- Back two Artful Boutique Scrapbooking roses/leaves Dazzles, the tall dress form Dazzles, and the large butterflies/swirls Dazzles with Boutique green/pink swirl paper and trim evenly around the edges. Add to the page as shown. Ink two white paper doilies with the Deep Lagoon Fluid Chalk ink pad and let dry. Punch out the Floral Boutique Foil Papier Tole silhouette #1 image and glue it centered on an inked doily. Punch out #2 image and foam tape over its matching design. Repeat foam taping each number until the design is complete. Place the doily with foil embellishment on the left side of the page, slightly overlapping the top photo as shown. Glue to the page at the center of the doily. Add Artful Boutique Scrapbooking swirl Dazzles, to the page to frame the doily at top and bottom as shown.
- Cut a 1 1/2" deep piece from each side of the remaining inked doily. Tuck one piece beneath the right side of the lower photo mat and glue in place. Tuck the second piece beneath the bottom edge of the large photo mat, near the left side. Glue in place. Add Artful Boutique Scrapbooking "true" Dazzle to the lower left corner of the large photo. Write or use a laser printer to print "friends" on the blank Floral Boutique Foil Papier Tole banner. Glue a Floral Boutique Foil Papier Tole "extra art" butterfly die-cut overlapping the banner, and add an "extra art" small butterfly near the silhouette embellishment. Write or computer print year on Boutique green/pink houndstooth paper, then frame it with a small label Dazzle. Trim edges evenly and add to the left side of the page as shown. Zot green grid ribbon near banner. Add corner Dazzles to the upper page corners and ink page edges with the Dark Brown Fluid Chalk ink pad.
