Je t'Adore!

Hello everyone!

I am pleased to share with you this layout I created using the Spring Market and Lullaby Lane collections from Webster's Pages.  Lullaby Lane is one of my favorite collections because of it's soft color palette.  I framed my photo with chipboard hearts which I inked with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

I used an accordian folding technique on the green patterned paper from the Spring Market collection.  See the tips and tricks below.
I cut my paper in half so I had two 6x12 pieces. Then I scored the paper at every 1/2 inch. Then I began folding back and forth like an accordian.  To adhere it to the page, I used my ATG gun and ran lines of adhesive back and forth on my base layer.  Then I positioned the fan folder paper.  I used 3-D foam squares, which are perfect for the 1/2 inch fold, to hold my top layer of patterned paper.  When you do this design, it is best to have things mapped out first. 

I used liquid pearls to accent my embellishments.  I love the new formula, it is beautiful!  The small rosettes are actually the centers of the larger flowers on the layout.  I replaced the centers of the larger flowers with Webster's sparklers as seen below.

This beautiful banner is from the Je t'Adore collection from Making Memories.  I inked the window with VersaMagic chalk ink in Tea Leaves.  To finish off the window I used liquid pearls.
