Designer's Tip: For a pretty lacy effect, frame a photo and papier tole embellishment with Dazzle stickers. A square lacy paper doily makes a beautiful oversized mat. Add silver stickles to the acrylic flower centers for a sparkly touch.
- Trim 2 3/4" off the right side of the square lace paper doily. Place the large piece of doily with the cut edge even with the right side of the pink roses background paper, 1 1/2" from the top. Mat the 3 1/2"x5 1/4" photo on white with 1/16" borders. Mat on aqua/white tulle paper with 1/4" borders. Mat again on pink/white dotted paper with 1/16" borders. Glue centered over the lace doily, even with the right edge. Cut out a lime/white scalloped stripe from striped paper and foam tape it across the lower left corner of the lace doily, trimming it evenly with the edges. Add a corner swirl to the lower left corner of the photo.
- Mat the 3 1/8"x4 3/4" photo on lime cardstock with 1/4" borders. Mat on aqua/white tulle paper with 7/8" borders. Mat once again on white with 1/16" borders. Piece borders and corner stickers around the photo, overlapping the lime mat and aqua/white tulle paper. Cut out a lime/white scalloped stripe from striped paper (or use remaining piece from step #1) and foam tape it across the bottom of the aqua/white tulle mat, trimming evenly at edges. Glue to the page, 3/8" from the left side and 5/8" from the top.
- Write or computer print journaling on aqua cardstock, and the year on lime cardstock. Trim journaling to a rectangle and add narrow border stickers to the ends. Mat on white with 1/16" borders. Glue to the page, 3/8" from the right side and bottom. Place a small oval frame sticker centered over the year to frame it. Foam tape above the photo on the right side of the page.
- Back the large oval frame sticker on aqua cardstock, trimming evenly around the edges. Glue below the photo on the left side of the page. Punch out and assemble the Papier Tole images with foam tape. Add the roses design centered on the backed oval frame sticker. Add the Love embellishment near the center of the page, overlapping the photos as shown.
- Zot acrylic flowers overlapping the photos and matting, journaling, and papier tole embellishments as shown. Layer large flowers with small ones if you like. Add silver Stickles to the center of each acrylic flower, and to embellish the frame stickers as desired. Let dry. Tie a ribbon bow and Zot overlapping the top left corner of the lace doily. Add knotted ribbon near the lower right corner of the aqua/white tulle mat.
