I hope you are not getting tired of my scrapbook pages, but I am really enjoying getting back into it again.  It certainly helps when you have been supplied with beautiful photos to work with.
This photo was taken by my niece, Dannielle.  It is of her twin sister “Amber”.  It is such a beautiful photo which captures her to a “T“, that I had to put it to paper!
I don’t usually copy layouts, but liked this one so much that I did copy the majority of it, but then started doing my own thing to finish it off.  I’ve taken the layout from the current Catalogue 2011-2012, Page 102.  That is the great thing about Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  Not only are they full of products, but brilliant ideas as well!  Stuck for ideas, head straight for any of the catalogues.
I cut the piece of DSP prior to layering it onto Marina Mist Textured Cardstock.  The larger piece of DSP was then adhered over the top.
I punched a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock using my Bigshot & the Circles #2 Die.  I punched a piece of Marina Mist Cardstock using my 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle & adhered the 2 together prior to adhering onto the DSP.  I didn’t mat my photo this time & it is taking some time for me to get use to, as I always do this.  It gives a different look anyhow.
I grabbed 3 different size flowers – could be Stampin’ Up! but am not sure, adhered together prior to adhering to the top of the Scallop Circle.  The photo was then adhered to the page.  I found a couple of coloured Rhinestones laying around in a bottom drawer & stuck one to the middle of the top flower.  These things pop up everywhere!  I have even found a couple attached to the dog from time to time!
A piece of Marina Mist Cardstock was punched along one side with the Scallop Edge Border Punch, adhered to the edge of the photo before a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock was adhered over th etop.
I punched a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using my Modern Label Punch, wrote Amber’s name & year with the Basic Black SU Marker & adhered to the piece of Soft Suede Cardstock.  I applied 2 of the Rhinestones to either side of the label.
I then adhered a piece of Crocheted Trim across the bottom of the photo, tied a bow, attached a Rhinestone Brad to the centre & adhered using a Mini Glue Dot.
Tip – Don’t be afraid to adhere “stuff” to your photos.  You will be pleasantly surprised of the result!
