Sandpaper & light brown ink for distressing

1. Cut and tear miscellanoeous pieces of patterned papers and adhere them to the background piece using the Glue Glider Pro and Perma Tac Adhesive.

2. Mat a 4x6" photo to pink paper and distress edges as desired. Cut a piece of U-Cut-It Foam the size of the photo mat. Adding the foam to the back of the mat pops your photo up off of the page giving it center stage!
3. Carefully apply the foam to the backside of the photo and mat (this stuff is amazingly sticky!)

Designer tip:I laid the side of the foam that still had the protective covering onto my work table then placed the photo mat onto it starting at the top edge, smoothing it down toward the bottom.

4. Apply desired stickers, title letters & die cuts along the right side of the photo. Using a die cutting machine or hand cut flowers shapes from the U-Cut-It Foam & pink paper. Curl edges of 3 flowers, stack together and use brads for center embellishment. Apply one flower shape to the U-Cut-It Foam flower.
5. Apply the layered flower pieces to the foam flower with Hot Glue then adhere the flower to the layout. Make 2 additional smaller flowers (just 3 paper layers) for the layout.
6. Add machine stitching as desired, staples and brads at the ends of paper strips. Sew buttons onto lace piece and upper left corner near photo.
