Ain't Life Grand?

Hello everyone,

It's a beautiful Saturday and I just stumbled on ther sweetest paper collection from We R Memory Keepers called "Anthologie." 

This collection features beautiful designs and a gorgeous color palette. 

I used Zva Creative flowers and crystals to add an extra special touch to my page.

Here are some of the steps I took to create my layout....

The collection features a gorgeous die cut which I cut in half and added a border sticker to the top. I scored a 1 1/2" section at the top of the die cut.  This will allow me to fold it easily.

Inking the border really makes the design pop!  I used Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.

I folded the top section using a bone folder to create a crisp edge.

Next, I created a decorative border using Martha Stewart's Garden Gate deep edge punch.

Now, I start to build the page. 

I cut a design from my patterned paper and I also added a mat from the collection's  4x6 pad.

I added two Zva Creative flowers and inked them both to add color and dimension.

Here I added a delicate crystal leaf design from Zva Creative.

Using, Viva Decor's Pearl Pen in Ice White, I added delicate pearl accents.

I finished my design by added a piece of white twine from May Arts which was accented with mini roses from Zva Creative.
