Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

Take a ruler and draw a line 7" across the top, and 7" line down the center. Cut the line with scissors or a craft knife. Roll the edges back to each side. Sponge all of the edges with blue and pink ink, then distress the edges. Glue them together.

Stamp three sets of each size Fuchsia flowers and stamens. Sponge them with pink ink, then mold and shape them. Add Liquid pearls to the ends of the stamens. I will have a tutorial of how I made my flowers on my blog here. Stamp butterflies, leaves, and Botanical Roses on papers from the paper collection. Cut each one out with the matching die. Sponge blue ink on the roses, and add prills to the centers. Sponge green ink on the edges of the leaves. Sponge black ink on the edges of the butterflies. Cut two strollers from the Sweet Lullaby die. Die cut tags and tickets from the paper collection with Luggage and Tad die. Then cut out a few small card fronts to add to the project. Add all of the elements to the layout, using the photo as a reference.

Take Three pieces of the Cascading Fuchsia paper collection and trim two of them to 11"x11" and 10"by 10". Leave the other one 12" by 12". 


  
 Take a ruler and draw 7" line across the top.

  
Draw  a 7" line down the middle, then take scissors and cut where the pencil marks are.


Roll the edges back into a V Shape.


Sponge the edges of each page with Danube Blue and Lilac Posies. Glue the layers together with Art Institute glue.

  
Stamp Three sets of each size of the Fuchsia flowers on papers from the Cascading Fuchsia paper collection.


Cut them out with the matching die.

  
Sponge Lilac Posies, covering the back of the flowers and the edges of the flowers.

Turn them over on their backs. Take the 4mm stylus from the Paper Shaping Kit and pull the petals towards the center of the flower. 


Flip them back to their fronts and place the 4mm stylus in the center of the flowers and move it into a circular motion, pulling the petals up towards you.

Do the same to the leafy ones. Next add three of the petals together to make the Fuchsia. Adding the leafy one to the top. Place the Flamingo Liquid Pearls on each of the stamens. Let them dry, then glue them to the inside of the flower. I colored the stems of the stamens with a black marker.

Take the matching papers from the Cascading Fuchsia paper collection and stamp the following: Stamp the Flowers, in Danube Blue ink,  stamp the leaves with Cottage Ivy ink,  stamp the Butterflies in black in.




Cut them out with the matching dies.

Mold and shape the flowers. Add three flowers of the same size together. Place a puddle of Art Glue to each one. Add prills to the centers. Place a puddle of Art Glue to each one. Add prills to the centers.
 


Cut out the tags and sentiments from the paper collection with the Luggage and Tag die. You can decide later which ones you want to use. Cut two of the stroller from the Sweet Lullaby die, and cut one of the Decorative Ovals with pink card stock.
  
You will start adding the pictures, flowers and embellishments to your project. Add some of the tags and sentiments to the top of the layout.
  
Use a corner punch to round the edges of the pictures. Then add the 3" by 4" card fronts to the layout. Add the pictures to the side of that at an angle. Glue the stroller to the top of the photo. Add a butterfly and some Sparklets to top it off.



Add all of the flowers, leaves, butterflies, and metal embellishments. Here is some close ups of that. I will have close ups and more instructions below. 



Here is a close ups of how I added the clear crystals.


I glued the flowers under the edges of the Botanical roses, and folds. 



Here is my completed project. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.



I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. I can't wait to see what you create with the Cascading Fuchsia Collection.
