Other Products: Green floral wire, smooth white cardstock, foam dots, distressing tool or sharp scissors, Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.

For more tips on creating the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Cardbase and Top Panel: The ready side fold card measures 5 1/2" by 8". To create the card base, cut a piece of smooth card base measuring 11" by 8" and score at 5 1/2" on the longer side. Choose a paper with large peonies from the designer paper collection and create a top panel measuring 5" by 71/2". I have combined 2 pieces of pattern papers and kept the paper with peonies on the right side. Distress the edges with Aged Mahogany distress ink and further distress them using sharp scissors or distressing tool. Layer the top panel on green cardstock, 1/8" larger on all the sides. Further, layer it on the card base. Adhere a small piece of Sweetheart Border dies cut between the layers as shown. Cover the joint with a thin strip of cardstock, painted with Aged Mahogany and a very thin strip of gold mirror sheet as shown. Adhere a white die cut from Sweetheart Border dies on the left-hand side of the joint.

Flowers: Stamp second large and third large images of peonies 4 times using archival ink, Plum. Cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the flower centers with leaf green. Also, color the flower petals with Rose Madder and highlight the edges with Magenta Hue. Also, color the back side of the petals. Shape the flowers using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Glue 2 petals each and press the center with a smaller ball tool. Prick a hole in the center and add a bunch of beaded thread stamens. Create 2 big and 2 small flowers.

Leaves: Stamp bunch of leaves from Classic Rose stamp using archival, Library Green and cut the images with it's coordinating die. Color them using Leaf Green and Olive Green archival inks. Shape them using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Also, stamp, cut, paint and shape foliage from Simply Classic stamp and die set.

Filler Flowers: For filler flowers, stamp, cut, paint and shape few smallest flowers from Wildwood Floral Collection. I have used Magenta Hue and Buttercup Archival inks to paint these flowers. Once all the elements are ready, arrange a bouquet as shown, add sparkle using crystal clear and finish the card by adding a sentiment from the paper collection.

Instructions: Card size: 7" x 21" open, 5" x 7" closed. Open base and die cut all top panels with Delicate border plain edge then cut decorative paper for each panel and die cut tops to match. Die cut 4 leafy borders from the Delicate Borders out of white and glue to tops. Die cut 2 pockets out of white and add to two 5 x 7" panels. Stamp and die cut Gate and glue to the 3rd panel from the left. Stamp and die cut blossoms, Lilac blossoms, birds and tags. Color birds, sponge color on the blossoms and leaves. Stamp and die cut Peony flowers from Rhubarb Stalk and Rose Coral then place in basic mold, mist and run through die cutting machine. Let dry then glue flowers together piercing a hole in the center of each flower. Add stamen. (Do not add a lot of bulk to the inside of card as it has to fold up and close.)

Die cut sentiment from Heartfelt Love paper with circle die and add a die cut white mat circle. Glue to inside of first panel on the right. Sponge glue randomly on paper and glitter with Crystal Clear.

On the back side, add white Sweetheart Border to 3rd panel from the left. The first panel on the left will be what shows when closed so add flowers and dimension mostly to this panel. Cut out sentiment from Peony paper collection and add small bird and flowers. Use a magnet to keep closed if desired. (The 2 halves of the magnet are covered by decorative paper, do this step while adding paper to panels).

For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Kraft cardstock is the 12x12" layer. Cut the patterned background to 11.25x11.25", distress the edges and adhere to the kraft cardstock. Add white photo corners. Cut a strip of the dark pink patterned paper that is 3x12", and add the 3" lace using a strong double sided tape. Adhere to the middle of the layout.

Die cut 1 of the lattice images from white cardstock and cut in half. Die cut 2 small circles from the light pink patterned paper and adhere to each half of the lattice die. Mat the 4x4 photo in white, burgundy and white cardstock again. Distress the edges and adhere the layers together. Adhere to the middle of the layout using 3D foam squares. Add the lattice pieces above and below the matted photo.

Find and cut out the "Life's Beautiful Moments" sentiment, distress the edges. Cut a piece of the light pink patterned paper that is 1.5x1.5", distress the edges and adhere to the right of the matted photo. Add the sentiment using 3D foam squares.

Stamp and die cut 4 sets of the small and large Sweet Peony images using Early Espresso ink for 2, and Smoothie for the other 2. Mist the backs of the coral flower images using the Blush mister, and the back of the brown ink stamped flowers using the Raspberry mister. Stamp and die cut 2 of the small bud images using Early Espresso ink. Stamp and die cut LOTS of leaves in different sizes for your flower clusters, in Early Espresso ink. I used a total of 15 leaves on this layout in a variety of sizes.

I added color to the leaves using 2 colors of green ink and daubers (Seaweed, Green Apple). I used the darker green just on the tips of the leaves. I did the same to the leaves on the bud images. I used burgundy ink on one bud and coral ink on the other. Shape all of the leaves. I added color to the flower images stamped in brown using burgundy ink and daubers. I added color to the flower images stamped in coral ink using a lighter shade of coral (Abandoned Coral) and daubers. I kept the tips of all of the petals a little darker when shading. Shape all of the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and assemble. My larger flowers have 4 layers, using 4 different sized flowers. The smaller flowers have 2 and 3 layers.

I added ivory stamen to the middles of the 3 largest flowers (8 in each). Then added large brads and gems to the middles also. The smaller flowers I added just gems.

Using a liquid adhesive add Crystal Clear Glitter to the tips of all of the petals on all of the flowers. Also to the buds. Let dry. Add the flowers and leaves around the matted photo to create clusters. Then add buttons and gems to fill out the clusters.

Instructions: My finished card is 5 x 7". I made the card base from instructions on Pinterest. I cut two pieces of cardstock 10 x 7 and scored both at 5" and 7 1/2". Glue two pieces together making a piece of cardstock 7" x 15". I covered the panels inside and out with pieces of the paper collection. I cut a piece of white cardstock 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 and covered with another piece of the paper collection. I also stamped a sentiment on this panel with black ink. I glued it down just on the left-hand side so it wouldn't interfere with the opening of the card. I made a second panel identical to the first and stamped a sentiment on it as well and then glued it to the inside, so it would cover the plain cardstock back.

Next, I fussy cut a piece of the paper to make a pocket for the inside center panel. I used Scor-Tape to adhere it to the panel, so I could slip tags down inside. I cut out tags from the paper Collection and tied ribbon through them and slipped them inside the pocket.

To make the bellyband I measured a piece of white cardstock 2" wide by enough to reach around the card and lap over a bit. Make sure you allow a bit more so it will slide up and down over the card. Cut out two pieces of the decorative die and glue them to the edges of the belly band. I then covered it with piece of the decorative paper collection.

Stamp and cut out the flower petals, leaves and other elements using coordinating inks. I colored and then shaped the flower petals with the mold and continued shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add some glue to the flower petals and sprinkle the Crystal Clear over them. Set aside to dry. I also colored and shaped the leaves and set them aside to dry. Then the little flower I stamped, cut out and added the shaved ice and set aside to dry as well. Once all were dry I glued it all down and then found a sentiment on the paper collection and cut it out and used dimensional tape to adhere to the bellyband.

Instructions: The finished size of this Layout is 12" x 12" (30.5cm x 30.5cm). Click HERE to see how to make the pleated frill. The photo used for this Layout is 2.36" x 3.34" (6cm x 8.5cm). Take the Sweet Peony paper collection and find the design paper with the birdhouse and white picket fence print. You will need both papers. Find the two papers with the printed stripes and the cardboard backing from the paper pad. Taking the papers with the birdhouse and fence, fussy cut the birdhouse and the two birds leaving the edge of the paper intact. Taking the 2nd paper cut a circle 9.40" (23.9cm). Cut the circle in the lower left side corner. Thus having the birdhouse and fence in the circle. Taking the cardboard box, cut enough for two layers to fit the circle. This does not have to be an exact circle; it can be patches of cardboard, as you will not see it. Adhere to the back of the circle. Adhere the circle to the Layout base. At this stage you will still see the cut away from the base this will be covered later.

Taking the striped design paper, cut into strips. The wider strip with the green print will be used. Put the other strips aside for another project. You will need at least 8 strips for this Layout. Make box pleat folds in the strips joining as needed to make a long, pleated paper. Distress the edges with the paper-distressing tool. Lay the pleated paper flat on a piercing mat then pierce the holes to make a centerline. Taking the gold tread and darning needle and backstitch in the holes. This will make the base for a pleated frill. Adhere to the Layout base around the circle making sure the edge of the frill covers the circle edge. Now the cut away is covered. Spritz the frill with water, when the frill is almost dry, using your forefingers and thumb round the pleats so they become a rounded frill. Put aside to dry.

Taking the stamps and dies for the Sweet Peony's, stamp using the Archival inks and white card stock. Bring color to the stamped flower petals and leaves with the 3d stamping inks. This will give a beautiful metallic sheen to your flowers. Taking the Crop-a-dile, make a small hole in the center of each petal. Using the flower shaping molds bring shape to the petals. The rose flower-shaping mold was used for the pink peonies and the basic flower-shaping mold was used for the lilac pink flowers. The yellow stamens are used for the pink and the purple rock candy is used for the lilac pink flowers. Thread the stamens through the holes as you stack the flower petal layers. See the video to see how this is done. Use the clear drying glue to apply the glitter to the flower petals and leaf veins. Taking the lilac stamp and matching die, make the lilac flowers. Using again the 3d stamping paint to bring color to the lilacs. Use the lilac flower-shaping mold to shape them.

Taking the wired ribbon, make a double triple bow. Adhere the bow to the lower left side on the paper frill. Apply 3d dots or 3d foam tape to the fussy cut birds and birdhouse. Adhere in place on the same printed image. Taking the photo, back this with cardboard from the packing box. Two layers. Once your flowers are made, arrange the photo and the flowers as seen in the photo of the Layout. Adhere in place. Arrange the peony flowers around the bow and on the paper frill. Adhere the peonies in place then adhere the leaves under the peonies. Arrange and adhere the lilac flowers around the photo and frill. Add also as fillers to the flower clusters. To finish apply the golden rod stickles to the lilac centers.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger  photo of this project. Take all 5 pieces of Cardboard and decorate them on both sides with design paper from the Collection. Then leave one complete and Ink it all the way around with Distress Ink Vintage Photo, this is the back. Then for the next one, the fourth, you cut a Horizontal V shape, when done you'll have 2 parts, ink all the edges with the distress Ink. For the Third one you cut a Vertical line a bit on the right side, then ink all the edges with the Distress Ink. For the second one you cut a vertical line on the left side, almost in the middle, then Ink all the edges with the Distress Ink. For the Front cover you cut a shape that looks like this / and ink all the edges! You can also choose to use different shapes like a half Circle or you can cut the shape of the design paper, (I will have some photos on my Blog). So now take the back cover and make 2 holes on the right side, 1/4 inch from the side and 3/4 inch from the top and bottom, do this on the left side too! Then you make the same holes on the same places in all your other 4 pieces. Take a piece of the gold rubber band and fold it double and put each end in a hole, start on the back and put one end in the upper hole and the other end in the Bottom hole, do the same at the other side. Now you have 4 strings of the rubber band on the front side, put a bead on each piece then put cardboard number 4 on it, get the rubber band through the holes and then a bead, do the same with all the pieces and at the end you will have 4 pieces of the gold rubber band on your front cover, then make a double bow in them and at the end I put a bead. So far you finished your basic book!

For the decorations I used images from Pinterest, but normally I would use my own photos. Take your photos and tape them on a piece of Bordeaux cardstock to mat them, then you have a nice little frame around your photo! Now you can put your photos in the album, and you can decorate it at your own taste with labels, pockets, borders etc. because the shapes or photo sizes are different.

For the cover I used 2 Images, I matted them on the Bordeaux cardstock and cut them out so that they have a small frame. I also put some dries clear glue on the image and covered it with the Crystal Clear. (You can't do this on a real photo!) Now get some white cardstock and stamp with memento Ink Rhubarb the large and small Peony and cut them out with the coordinating die. Color them on the back and front with Memento Rose Bud and then you put them in the Flower Shaping mold with the wrong side up, spray them a little bit wet and put the top on the mold and run it through your machine. Then turn them over and using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit, press in the middle of the flower and put them together. See the video above. Then stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black the Lilac, the rain boot and blossom stamp, the leaves and Rose Vines, color all the leaves with memento bamboo leaves shade them a little bit and add some distress ink on them too. Color the Lilac with Memento Lulu lavender and Sweet Plum. When everything is colored you can cut them out with the coordinating dies and shape them on your Shaping mat. In the middle of the Lilac you can pierce a little hole and add a small flower stamen.

On every page I used my fine liner to make little lines on the edges. When all the flowers are shaped and dry then you can make a nice arrangement on your front cover.

For more tips on creating with the border dies & foldout cards, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo.

Instructions: For Card Base: Card base is 6.5 x7" on white card. Cut a pattern paper from collection measuring 6.25 x 6.75". Attach to card base. Using the Fleur Border Basics set, cut on a similar pattern using the straight curve so paper measures approximately 4.75 x 5.75". Once you have this curve cut on the pattern paper; take one of the pattern dies and cut a border on white card and mat this under the curve border. Cut out the Decorative Medallion Die on a similar pattern paper and adhere this behind the curved border so it is on a bit of an angle. Now cut out the Botanic Window on a complementing pattern paper. Stamp the sentiment for today's quote on the front of the window using plum archival ink. Adhere this in front and on top of all die cuts listed above and as shown in photo.

Stamp out 4 sets of the large peony using plum archival ink on white card. Stamp and cut out the 3 sets of the small peony using plum archival ink on white card. Color centers of the flowers with sunflower archival ink and outer edges with Plum archival ink. Pierce in center with paper piercer to make room for stamen and foam buds. Stamp and cut one set of the smallest peony using plum archival ink on white card, we will be using these as fillers. Color same as large peony and pierce center to make room for the wired stamen.

Stamp and cut four large peony leaves using leaf green and color with fern green and leaf green archival ink. Stamp and cut out two classic rose vines and use as detail layers under the flower bunches.

To mold the flowers, I have cut an older molding mat in half and hot glued it together to form a double layer molding mat. This allows some deeper shaping abilities. Insert the foam bud in the center of the second largest peony placing glue in center, attach another layer of flower then add 2 layers of the largest peony. Note: Color the foam buds using the sunflower archival ink. These will go in the centers. Create two large flowers this size. Create three flowers using two layers of the small peony inserting the foam buds. Do not throw away the cut off wire stems.

Take the stylus tool and wrap the cut off wire around the stylus to form a curly wire piece, insert these throughout the flower clusters to add some detail. Detail all the flowers and leaves with crystal clear. Complete card as I have shown in my sample.

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2". Make the card base and cover with pieces of the paper collection.

I stamped the flower petals with Pink Peony ink then color with Pink Peony which gives you a monochromatic flower. I stamped the leaves and small flower sprays with black then colored with inks and cut out. I also cut out the Peony at this time. Shape the flower with the Floral basic shaping mold and then add some Crystal Clear to the edges of the peony. Set aside to dry.

Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and edge with Berrylicious ink and add a half pearl. Next I found a sentiment on the paper collection and cut it out and glued it to one of the panels of the card.

Now arrange the flowers and leaves and glue down. The card is ready to go.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo this project. It's a medium size embroidery hoop that has been altered. To create the base, cover the entire hoop using baker's twine using some tacky glue. Take any pattern paper from the paper collection and prep the base by applying some gesso. Take a stencil and then apply some texture paste at random corners. Sprinkle water base spray paint, art stones, and some crystal clear. Heat set at every layer before applying the next. Once all layers are dried add some beads and art stones. Once the base is ready stick the paper to the base of the hoop which will form the surface on which we can start layering the projects.

Cut two fish tail banners measuring at 3"x 1.5" and another at 1/8" less than the base one. Distress the edges and on the front pattern banners stamps some images of the peonies with mustard distress ink. On the front banner stamp the sentiment from the words of encouragement set using black archival ink. Place the banners on a foam adhesive and then place it on more foam adhesive at the center of the hoop.

To create the flowers, stamp and die cut several pieces of the small and large peonies from the art foam and then shape them by pressing against any heat tool. Pierce a hole at the center and then place the flower stamens and set it using any tacky glue. For the leaves using leaf green archival ink and then shape the leaves also similar way. Once all flowers and leaves are made start assembling them around the banners and also create the base using some dry ferns, lace and also some wooden chippies colored and embossed. Once all assembled add some glitter and some more glitter spray paint at the end.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Stamp the Large Sweet Peony Cling Stamp Set on foam paper with black Ranger Archival ink and die cut using the coordinating dies. Colour with Gallery soft pastels 014. You will need five petals for each flower to create flowers. Use an iron or heat gun to heat the petals and then shape using your fingers. Layer the petals together using the hot glue gun making sure to offset them or use a paper piercer to make a hole in the middle and pull the stamens through.

Stamp leaves in Archival Jet Black ink onto green foam and die cut. Colour with Gallery oil pastels 211, heat and and shape with your fingers. Hot glue each leaf onto floral wire (I did 15 leaves, each one on it's own wire stem).

Attach floral wire to the ends of your stamens, lengthening them, wrapping with floral tape to secure. This creates the flower stems. As you're wrapping, add some leaf wires in with each flower. Once you have all the flower stems, attach them together with floral tape, creating one main stem. Add a little hot glue to the underside of each flower of the bouquet to securely adhere to the wire and prevent it from moving (see tutorial).

Finally, sponge the petals with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Ultrafine transparent glitter to complete the bouquet.
