Instructions

  1. Position the multi-color tile pattern page so the brown borders are along the right and bottom. Use a makeup wedge to ink the edges of a 5”x7” and a 4”x6” photo with Timber Brown Stazon®. Mat the large photo onto purple pattern and the small photo onto green pattern, leaving 1/2” around the edges. Tear along all edges to get a torn look, then ink the edges brown. Mat again onto brown cardstock, leaving a 1/2” border.
  2. Glue the large photo to the top left of the page, tilted slightly to the left. Glue the small photo on the right side about 3” down from the top.
  3. Stamp a scalloped frame stamp above the small photo, about 1/2” from the top. Stamp the same image onto white cardstock and print a caption in the center. Cut around the line of the frame and ink around the edges with Dusty Concord ink using a makeup wedge. Foam tape the caption onto the matching shape on the page.
  4. For the heart border: Cut a 12”x3 1/2” strip of glossy cardstock. Using the Versamark™ inkpad, stamp 4 hearts in a row 1/4” from the bottom, evenly spaced (about 1/2” apart). Let dry for at least 20 minutes. You can also help dry it with a hair dryer. Take a makeup wedge and dab it onto the Dusty Concord inkpad. Dab it over the stamped hearts in a firm tapping motion. Rub it in a little. You should start to see the stamped design resisting the ink. Cover the entire strip with Dusty Concord.
  5. Stamp a second row of hearts with Versamark™ just above the first row, overlapping the white hearts. Sprinkle on Amethyst embossing powder and shake off excess. Emboss with a heat embossing tool. Try not to use the heat tool too long to avoid excessive warping of the glossy cardstock. Cut out about 1/8” around the heart border and glue to the page 3/4” from the bottom, overlapping the photos.
  6. Embellish title, photos, and border with silver Jewel Dazzles™. Zot™ a small purple crepe bow above the small photo.
