Echo Park Victoria Collection, Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Forrest Moss), StazOn Archival Ink (Jet Black), Melissa Francis white pearls, Rangers Stickles (icicle), Liquid Pearls (White Opal), Prismacolor Pencil (PC947), OMS, Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page (Cherish, Double Loops, Scallop 3 Dots), EK Success alphabet

I used the beautiful picture of Ellen, Linda (Heartfelt Creations's CEO)'s daughter. I also used three different Martha Stewart punches-a record for me!

I used the Double Loops and Scallop 3 Dots corners to make the circles out of two different black cardstocks and I love the different effects it gives the layout!

I made a few blooms and greenery using both old and new stamps. I used the raspberries from the new collection (Ornamental Lights) and the Botanical Floral flowers, together with butterflies and greenery from different collections and as you can see, everything work together beautifully!

Here's another close up of the cluster. I just love the beautiful raspberries!

I love all the layers that you can achieve with a little punch work and dies.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Punch around the green pattern paper using the Martha Stewart Cherish punch. Curl the top left corner in and adhere the background unto a white cardstock. Die cut one 9” circle and one 10” circle out of black cardstock and punch around the edges using the corner punch from the Martha Stewart Punch around the Page Double Loops and Scallop 3 Dots. Layer then on top of each other and adhere them over the center of your background. Die cut an 8” circle out of matching pattern paper and add over the black circles. Add tiny liquid pearl drops around the edge and let it dry. Mat your 5”x7” picture unto white cardstock and distress the edges. Adhere over the center right side f the background circles. Stamp, color and fuzzy cut a few berries from the Ornamental Raspberries Precut Set. Stamp, die cut and color with the Prismacolor pencil and blend with the OMS a few flowers from the Botanical Floral Precut Set 1 and 2. Layer a few different size blooms inside each other and finish with a pearl as the center. For the greenery, stamp, die cut and color using the Forrest Moss distress ink a few leaves from the Botanical Florals set and the Bella Rose Leaves Precut Set. Stamp and die cut a few green fillers from the Organic Fillers Precut Set as well. Add your blooms and greenery as a cluster in the bottom left side of the picture, as shown.  Add a few greenery and blooms to the top left corner that you curled up as well. Stamp and die cut a few butterflies and adhere them randomly around the page. Stamp the sentiment from the Inspire Me Sentiments Precut Set under the picture and add the subject of the picture’s name directly over the right side of the photograph. Add liquid pearls drops to the center of the butterflies, alphas and finish by add stickles to the blooms and butterflies.
