Together - Heartfelt Creations

It is new release Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations called the Cameila Carnation! And I am sharing a layout with you.

I have to admit, this was a flower i had difficulty with, i could not get the forming correctly and went through all kinds of paper trying to figure it out. In the end i decided to be different and not do a carnation, instead, i just did a flower.

I know its difficult for anyone to admit defeat, but i had to, LOL, i do love how this layout turned out, the photo of Emma Lou and Richard was perfect for the heart frame from Creative Embellishments. 

I colored the chipbaord with vintage photo and did two coats of UTEE; i did the same to the Heartfelt love border that is just under the large fussy cut heart for detail. 

this layout is somewhat simple compared to others i have done, but i wanted to  focus on the sprays from the carnation set, isnt Emma Lou just the cutest! 

Happy Scrapping!

Instructions: Select two 12 x 12" papers from the collection. Cut one down to 11.5 x 11.5" and use the punch around the page border punch. Ink and distress the edges on this to rough it up. Distress the edges on the second paper. Adhere these two together centering the punched border page in center as shown. From second paper of these, be brave and pencil out a heart on both to measure approximately 8 inches high and about 6 inches wide. Second one about 7.5 x 5.5". Distress the edges. And then ink with vintage photo. Also I used a bit of rusty hinge to brighten the papers up a bit too.
Stamp and cut out 6 sprays from the Fanciful carnation set, 3 of each of the open and closed carnation with coffee archival ink on canson water color paper. Color with zig markers. Cut out a heartfelt love border from the same paper as background, ink with vintage photo lightly and give 2 coats of UTEE to make it strong, this will go under the hearts on the background, and you can adhere this together.
Stamp and cut out two sets of the small Camelia carnation, color with tea rose and vermilion orange, use the 3D Basics mold and mold the flowers, then set the stamens in the center.
Cut out two 6x6" panels for the photo mat, mat the 5x5" photo on black cardstock and then cut down one panel to 5.5x5.5" and adhere together and attach to 6x6" panel. Ink the heart chipboard frame and apply a layer of UTEE. Ink the title with versa mark and set with white embossing powder.
Assemble your layout beginning with the Heart you cut out, attach the heartfelt love border underneath as shown in my sample, on top layer the 6x6" panels and photo. Adhere the chipboard heart frame as shown and attach the title. Tuck in the carnation sprays as you like and adhere the flowers as shown. You can finish off with crystal clear to add more detail.
