To make a page like this, you will need the following goodies from the store:
1.5" Jute Ribbon Natural (those who are familiar with my work, certainly know that I'm such a junkie for jute/burlap lately!)
Red/White Twisted Rope
Moss 3/8" Velvet Ric-Rac
Jenni Bowlin Embellished Butterflies Brown
Watermelon Hand-Painted Buttons
You'll also need: 12x12" corrugated cardboard, Basic Grey tag, some ornamental lace trim; chipboard heart and leaf, a piece of cream mulberry paper, red rhinestones/jewels, felt flower embellishments, stapler, sewing machine, white and olive ink & assorted alphabets (mine are from American Crafts, Bella! & Jemark)
Firstly take your photo, and adhere it to a piece of mulberry paper. Do not cut the edges of the paper precisely - tear it carefully by hand. If you're unsure of the effect, help yourself with ruler.
Stitch around the edges.
Take the Basic Grey tag (mine is from the SweetPea Jack Collection), and adhere it to the upper right corner of the cardboard:
Cut two generous lengths off Jute Ribbon, and adhere as shown, one on top of another:
Put your photo on top and secure it (I recommend using a strong glue when working with jute, it can be quite fiddly. A strong double-sided tape works well too):
Arrange your letters in the lower left corner of the page:
Staple two pieces of Velvet Ric-Rac below the letters. I made mine overlap a bit:
Cut a length of Twisted Rope, and arrange it on the page as shown. Staple to the base on both ends, and secure the loop with glue.
Ink up the edges of chipboard flowers and adhere to the left of the sentiment:
Arrange felt flowers around it freely:
Add some doodling to the visible parts, with a white gel pen:
Add journalling to the tag, embellish with Hand-Made Buttons & chipboard heart
Find some lace with 'frilly' edge, and put over the head, to resemble the crown. Embellish with jewels:
Add Jenni Bowlin butterfly:
Distress the edges with white ink, rubbing the pad directly against the paper:
...and voila! You're all done :)
I hope you enjoyed! If you'd like to find out more details, feel free to contact me. Have a wonderful evening, and I'll see you in a week's time :)
