Step by Step
Take the pale blue paper from the 12 x 12 inch paper pack and cut a 6 inch wide strip.
Use a couple of the cloud dies and position along one edge. Feed through your die cutting machine. Repeat this along the whole edge. Sand the ‘clouds’ to reveal the white core and then glue to your backing sheet.
Repeat the above step three times and layer up on the page.
Add a 6 x 4 photo over the cloud tucking one of the journaling cards and the lined card cut from the 12 x 12 paper pack behind the photo. Tuck a scallop behind the photo on the right had side.
Add a strip of the ‘with love’ woven fabric strips along the bottom of the photo.
Stamp the border die along the bottom edge of woven tape.
Stamp the ‘friend’ stamp on to some of the cream paper, cut out and add to bottom right of the layout.
Cut a long length of the pink bakers twine and add to the bottom of the layout over the stamped image, twisting to add some small loops.
Cut some hearts, bird and label from the 12 x 12 paper pack and glue to the left of the layout as shown. Glue on some ink buttons.
Cut out the pieces of the hot air balloon in the patterned paper and build up as desired. Embellish with a bakers twine bow and add to the top right of the photo.
Create some 3D flowers by cutting a spiral into one of the vintage notes. Roll from the outside in and secure with a glue gun. Repeat this until you have the desired amount of flowers and then add to the layout.
Finish by adding a few of the die cut birds.
