Create holes for hand sewing by running your cardstock through a sewing machine without it being threaded. Hand sew with silver embroidery thread. Tip: after you stitch your boarder add acid free scrapbooking tape to the back to keep wear and tear to the holes from happening over time.
Adhere a 4 x 6 photo to your cardstock using Glue Dots® memory book adhesive.
Place Prima’s Say it with Crystals Swirl with Lace on one side of the photo. Snip apart the Prima Mulberry Paper butterflies, leaves, and curls. Add the butterflies to the crystals using Glue Dots® pop ups.
Add Glue Dots® memory book adhesive to the center of each solid flower. Press on Our Craft Lounge Sparkly Fluff to the adhesive creating a soft center for each flower. The Sparkly Fluff seems to last forever.
Place Glue Dots® memory book dots on the back of each flower and place them in a cascading form from the crystals to the stitches. Leave space in between the flowers to place the lightweight flowers, leaves and curls.
With each of the lighter flowers add a Glue Dots® mini in the center and fold in half. Add another Glue Dots® mini on center edge and place it in between the flowers already adhered to the cardstock. Continue to fill in the spaces with the light flowers, leaves and curls. Add Glue Dots® memory book dots to the curls by rolling the curl over the dot, wrapping it around the stem.
Complete your layout with your title and sub-title. Tip: Even if the chipboard letters have adhesive on them already I always add a little more strength to them by adding Glue Dots® Adhesives memory book dots.
I love using my Glue Dots® Adhesives to create collage effects on my layouts. It’s a sure way to know that my collage will stay where I place it. Once I’m on a roll I don’t like to stop and wait for liquid (wet) adhesive to dry before moving on to the next item in my collage making.
