This little sweet baby in the picture is my niece and I took this picture about a month ago when I visited her. She's such a happy baby!

Here's a close up of the huge flower cluster that I made.

I made  two huge red roses (6 layers each) and a few few smaller pink and red sores with a pearl as their centers. I just can't get enough of these distressed roses!

I used the leaves from the Balmy Breeze collection because I just love the swirls on it! I stamped and die cut them from a light color pattern paper and inked the edges to give them a vintage and soft look. I also heat embossed one of the new borders on vellum and then fuzzy cut it to make it look like lace. I just love this technique for making your own lace!

I made a long title with the large background sentiment stamp from this new collection-which I love! I stamp it once and cut out all the words and I can mix and match and create my personalized titles and even journaling!

Last but not least, I stamped and colored a butterfly from the Delicate Asters and Butterflies PreCut Set. I fuzzy cut it and glimmer mist it with Pearl  glimmer mist and added two pearls to it's center.

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Die cut two 6” circles from a brown pattern paper. Draw in faux stitching around the edges of each circle. Adhere both circles to a background pattern paper. Mat your 6”x4” photo and adhere to center of page over the circles. Stamp the border from the Summer Season Precut Set on vellum and heat emboss it in white. Fuzzy cut around it and add it under the photo. Die cut the top of the gate die in black and tuck in on the right side of the photo. Stamp and cut out the words from the All Seasons Sentiments Precut Set. Add in your long title on the left side of the photo. To make the flowers, stamp and die cut a bunch of different size roses from the Vintage Floret set. Form your roses by using 2 large and 4 smaller single layer flowers to form your full bloom. For the open flowers, use 2 large and two tiny flowers and add a pearl to the open roses.  Stamp and die cut a few rose leaves and vine leaves from the Beautiful You PreCut Set. Lightly ink the edges with Vintage Flower distress ink to give it an antique look. Add all the flowers and leaves under the photo to form the large cluster. Finally, stamp and fuzzy cut the butterfly from the Delicate Asters and Butterflies PreCut Set. Color in some spots with a red Prismacolor Pencil and glimmer mist it to add some sparkle. Finish by adhering it to the top right of the layout and adding two pearls to its body.
