True Love…1950’s Style page — By: LeNae Gerig


Tip: Use the Tonic Border System guides set to 3.5 cm on each side of the Lace Edger Punch. Begin by punching the center of the paper strip and then line up the guard with the one side of the outer edge of the punched image. Repeat to the end of the strip and then move to the opposite side of the first punched image to finishing the strip. To add the accent punch, change the punch out of the Border System and use the guide as before to line up the diamond accent centered in each of the Lace Edger images.


  1. Photo border: Place the paper with the rose cluster at the top left corner. Punch aqua blue tapestry paper with the Lace punch for a 5” wide strip. Add the diamond Accent punch. Punch a strip of light ivory cardstock for the mat and glue over the top edge of the photo. Mat the 4”x 5” photo with black cardstock, leaving a 1/16” wide border. Glue the photo near the top of a 5”x 7 ½” blue/ivory check paper with inked edges.
  2. Lace border: Punch along the edge of the aqua tapestry paper for 12”. Cut the 12” long strip to 1 ¾” wide and line up the punched images to be exactly opposite one another. Use a cotton swab to apply black ink to the edges of the lace strip. Glue across the page, over the bottom of the photo mat. Secure mini brads to the center of each image.
  3. Roses: Darken the silver Dazzles™ rose stickers to pewter by applying black StazOn ink pad over the surface of the Dazzles™ stickers and let dry. Adhere the roses stickers to the red tapestry paper and the leaves to green cardstock. Cut out the stickers, layer the rose shapes with foam tape and glue the leaves under the flowers. Print journaling on to light ivory strips.
