Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Vintage Photo), StazOn Archival Ink (Jet Black), Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page (Vintage Flowers), Tim Holtz Blending tool, Recollections White Pearls, Pazzles Inspiration, black sharpie, Signo Uniball white opaque pen

With these soft pattern papers and distressed flower stamps, of course that I had to make another wedding layout! For this one I had a lot of fun! I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch to make it frilly and I made a doily (tutorial here) for the background. I used 13 mini doilies for a 7.5" circle.

Of course, the real show-stopper are the distressed roses. I made them out of a light pink cardstock and distressed them a bit with the Tim Holtz distressing toll and then added glitter to them, thus making them Shabby Chic roses.

I made a few of these sweet butterflies as well. I stamped them on a brighter pink pattern paper and then colored in with my black sharpie some areas to make it stand out.

I folded back the top left corner to expose the brown underside of the pattern paper. I then die cut a corner in hot pink and added it underneath for a bit of a contrast.

Finally, here's another view of the embellie cluster. I made a bunch of distressed roses and filled them in with flourished leaves.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Punch around the page with Martha Stewart Vintage Flowers. Adhere unto black cardstock and fold back the top left corner. Add clear glitter to the flowers on the pattern paper and let it dry. Die cut the corner die from the Decorative Butterfly-Border Die in bright pink and add to the fold back corner. Cut a 7.5” circle out of green pattern paper, ink the edges and doodle faux stitches. Die cut 13 mini semi-circle doilies from the Layered Scalloped Posy Die and adhere to the back of the large circle to make a large handmade doily. Adhere to the center of the background. Place your picture in the center of the circle and add the title on top and on the side of the photo. Stamp and die cut two large Bella Rose Leaves Precut Set. Adhere on either side below the photo. Stamp, die cut and lightly ink and shape different size flowers from the Open Vintage Floret Precut Set.  Assemble your flowers by using two of the same size blooms and the 5 side blooms in a different shade of pink to the center of the flowers.  Add a white pearl to each flowers’ center. Make a few smaller blooms as well and add them randomly around the cluster and among the leaves. Finish by adding white glitter to accent the blooms. Add the flowers right under the photo. Stamp and die cut a few leaves from the Botanical Floral 2 PreCut Set. Add to cluster. Stamp and color a few butterflies from the Delicate Asters and Butterflies Precut Set. Fuzzy cut them, add a pearl as their center, and adhere randomly to the layout.
