      * Paper: Vintage Blue Stripe, Vintage Blue Toile, Vintage Blue Polka Dot, Vintage Blue Rose, Vintage Blue Floral, scrap manilla paper
      * Glitz Tiny Alphas
      * Glitz Paper Layers
      * Prima Resin Window & Photo Coer
      * Small Blue & Yellow flowers
      * Butterflies from Filw (1 sm and 1 lg)
      * Sizzix Tattered Floral Die
      * Lifestyle Swirls Dies
      * Heartfelt Creations Leaf stamp (black ink)
      * Any color green mist (I used Lindy's Starburst)
      * MS Deep Edge punch – Floral Vine
      * MS Punch – Deco Fan
      * Prima Bling
      * 2 Pearl Stick Pins


      Step One:
      *Assumes you are using a 4×6 photo
      *Cut 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 rectangle from center of Vintage Blue Stripe
      *Cut Vintage Blue Toile into an 11 inch square
      *Center and glue Vintage Toile onto the Vintage Stripe


      Step Two

      *Cut Vintage Blue Polka Dot to 5 1/4 x 11 inches
      *Using your deep edge Floral Vine punch, punch the length of both edges
      *Cut 2- 1×11 strips from Vintage Blue Polka Dot


      Step 3

      *Flip over the larger strip with the Floral Vine Punch (so that the yellow side faces you)
      *Glue the 1 stripes (blue side facing you) so that they cover the majority of your Floral Vine punch


      Step 4
      * Glue the strip you just completed onto the Vintage Toile – I brought mine in about an inch from the side


      Step 5
      Create your photo mat
      *Take any contrasting yellow paper from the kit and cut it 5×7
      *Cut a 1×6 1/4 strip from the Vintage Rose Paper
      * Using the Deco Fan Punch, punch the length of one side.
      * Center the Vintage Stripe onto the yellow mat and then move it up toward the top just a touch. You want to leave room for your punched strip.
      * Using the YELLOW side of the Deco Fan strip, glue it to the bottom of the Vintage Stripe. You will need to slide it undeeath so you have a nice edge.
      * Center and adhere your photo to the mat.


      Step Six
      Create your flowers & Leaves and Butterlies
      * Get 2 of 3 blue papers from the Glitz pack (there are 3 that are identical)
      * Using your Tattered Floral Die cut 4 large and 2 medium (not the daisy-like flower) flowers
      * Cut the wire stems off of 2 small dark blue flowers from the kit
      * Arrange two large flowers, 1 medium flower together, off-setting the petals and then glue the small blue flower in the middle. Repeat for your 2nd flower
      * You will need to dampen the paper just a LITTLE bit (paper tears easy). This is so that the paper will hold some of the crumpling and shaping it needs to look like a flower
      * Take your manilla scrap paper and stamp two sets of leaves on it. Mist or ink to your desired color and then cut them out.
      * Cut out 2 butterflies and shape the wings so that they are bent a little bit. Add rock candy stickles for accent.



      Step Seven

      Cutting your Swirls and embellishing them – Resin Photo Coer
      * Using your Vintage Floral paper and the Swirl Dies, cut 2 of the largest swirls out.
      * Using the Prima Bling that came in the kit, accent a few of the swirls, and accent the coer flower on the resin photo coer.



      Step Eight
      Final Assembly
      * Using 2 more of the Glitz Papers, layer them on your page undeeath your photo and glue them down along with your picture.
      * Using Alphas, place your title onto one of the papers
      * Start assembling your flowers, leaves, swirls, stick pins, butterflies and resin window to your liking and then glue them all down.

        Gorgeous layout Lisa! Thanks for sharing. I would have never though to cut my photo mat from your first sheet of paper.


        Gorgeous! Have a question on the TH die, can you use that die in the quickcutz revolution or do you have to have the sizzix machine?


        Wonderful job showing the steps to that beautiful LO.

            Jackie, I don't think that the Quickutz can take the Sizzix Bigz, they're too thick for the space between the rollers. You may have the basic idea among your dies; what you're looking for is a couple of six-petal flowers, about 3 and 1-3/4 wide.
