These pictures were taken back in 2009 and this was definitely a special day for my hubby and I. Earlier this day we had gone and purchased his wedding band, finishing up the things we had to purchase before the wedding. We later went to this local park in Miami, FL to walk around. We were getting pretty exited that the wedding was just weeks away.

Because of the story behind it, I decided to title this layout Special Day. I used one stamp from the precut stamp set Classic Message PreCut Set, inked it, and taped off the words on your so I could be left out with the pretty scripted words Special Day. I die cut and embossed the title. I then inked the raised edges and added pearls and tiny liquid pearl dots to accent it.

Like I said earlier, I used the Floral Cross Collection to make these flowers. I stamped, die cut using the matching die, embossed, misted to add color and added puffy paint to make these flowers. I then stamped and added a few leaves and flourishes and finished it of with a few randomly placed butterflies.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Punch around the border of the light blue pattern paper with the Martha Stewart Wild Flowers punch. Adhere unto a teal colored cardstock. Pull a floral pattern paper from the Authentique 6x6 Gathering collection bundle, distress and machine stitch the edges. Cut the floral paper into 4 equal parts and adhere to background. Cut the second light blue pattern paper to 4”x6” and distress and machine stitch the edges as well. Place vertically over the floral paper. Cut another pattern paper to 5”x10” and distress and machine stitch the edges. Adhere horizontally over the other layers after die cutting and adding a blue die cut border underneath. Add your two 3”x4” pictures to the center of the layout as shown. For your flowers, stamp two of the largest and a few of the next size down lilies from the Pristine Lilies Precut Set and die cut them. Emboss using your Cuttlebug and the Textile Texture A2 Embossing Folder. Dilute in a mini mister a bit of Dried Marigold Reinker and spray your flowers. Randomly add puffy paint over the petals and in the center. Let dry and apply heat using your heat gun until it puffs up. Layer the two large flowers and place in the center under the pictures. Make the other flowers the same way you made the larger one and add them around the cluster. Stamp and die cut some large and small leaves in two different shades of green. Slightly fold them in half and add around your flowers. Die cut two Belle Rose leaves flourishes in brown and cut out only the flourish parts. Add to cluster and add Liquid Pearl dots directly on the flourishes. Stamp your sentiment (I used tape to cover the on your part of the rubber stamp so I could be left out with just the Special Day part) and die cut and emboss it with a Labels 4 die. Add blue pearls and liquid pearl dots around the edge and place on left side of the pictures. Finally, print, cut and add some butterflies randomly to the page and add liquid pearl dots to their body.
