Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. I used both sheets of the background patterned paper. Leave one fully intact. With the other, cut out the middle section of the pattern. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper that is 2x12 and mat that in white cardstock. Adhere across the middle of the background patterned paper. Adhere the piece of pattern with the middle cut out on top of the full sheet using crafty foam tape. Cut a strip of the light purple patterned paper that is 0.5 x 9.5” and cut a strip of the darker purple that is 3.5 x 9.5” and then tear both ends. Adhere these up the middle of the layout. Cut the photo to 4 x 4”, and mat in 2 layers of white cardstock. Distress the edges of both mats and adhere the layers together using crafty foam tape. Adhere the photo atop the layout again using crafty foam tape over the double border.
Find and die cut out the green tag for the top and the small purple journal block for the right of the photo. Adhere each using 3D foam squares. Find and cut out the “Memories with You” sentiment and adhere below the matted photo.
Stamp and die cut one each of the following onto white cardstock: Window, hydrangea swag and the small hydrangea bloom using Archival Ink (Shadow Grey). Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the small hydrangea flowers onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using grey ink. Add color to all of the leaves using ink and daubers (CTMH- Fern, New England Ivy). Add color to the individual flowers and the small bloom base using ink and daubers (Versa Color- Imperial Blue, Amethyst). Add color to the small blooms on the hydrangea swag using Zig Clean Color Markers (Persian Blue, Light Violet, Violet, Cobalt Blue) and a water brush. Shape all of the individual flowers using the coordinating shaping mold. Add lavender Prills to the middle of each flower using a liquid adhesive. Let dry. Add the flowers to the small bloom and save 1 to add above the matted photo.
Shape the swag using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add the window to the left-hand side of the matted photo and add the swag along the bottom using 3D foam squares. Add the small bloom to the left-hand side of the matted photo again using 3D foam squares.
