      Supplies:
      002-4-1.jpg

      * 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

      003-3-1.jpg

      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

      004-5-1.jpg

      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

      005-6-1.jpg

      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

      006-5-1.jpg

      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.

      007-3-1.jpg

      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.

      013-2-1.jpg

      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?

            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.
