Designer Tips • Use the frames Dazzles™ to break up your journaling into several different sized blocks to add interest to your layout.
- Background: Use the allover roses as your background. Cut two 2" x 12" pink strips and glue them along the left and right edges.
- Photos: Mat a 4" square photo on brown cardstock with a 1/16" border. Mat again on white cardstock with a 1/8" border. Glue to page 1" from the left and 1 3/4" from the top. Mat a 6" x 4" photo on brown cardstock with a 1/16" border. Mat again on white cardstock with a 1/8" border. Glue to page 3/4" from the right and 1 1/4" from the bottom.
- Journaling: Print 5 captions on pink textured paper from the Artsy Collage Textured Papers #2. Use the frames Dazzles (see photo) as your guide to how big to print your journaling. Place the 5 brown frames Dazzles™ over the pink journaled pieces and cut around the edge of the Dazzles™ frames. Foam tape the long narrow frame 1 1/4" from the top and 1/2" from the left. Glue the large rectangle frame 3 1/4" from the top and 3 1/2" from the right. Glue the oval frame 1/2" from the right and 5" from the bottom. Glue the large curved frame 2 1/2" from the left and 3" from the bottom. Glue the tiny frame 4" from the left and 2" from the bottom. Cut out the gold "bloom" and "grow" labels from the Nature & Garden Words. Foam tape "bloom" overlapping the bottom of the upper photo. Foam tape "grow" overlapping the bottom edge of the lower photo as shown.
- Embellishing: Place 2 hummingbirds and 2 roses Dazzles™ (see photo) on dark pink texture paper. Cut out, leaving a 1/16" border. Glue the large roses above the large rectangle frame, tucked behind it a little. Glue the large hummingbird to the right of the roses as shown. Glue the small rose to the bottom of the lower photo. Glue the small hummingbird 1 1/2" from the left and bottom.
