She's a Sassy Lady Wednesday!

Good morning!  Today I am a guest designer at She's a Sassy Lady.  I created this layout which I want to describe step by step.  If you're familiar with my work you will notice that all of my layouts are two-page spreads.

I usually start with a base which is the same paper for both pages.   This base paper has a partial frame which becomes a larger frame when I flip one and put the two together.

To the base I add a 6 x 12 piece of pink polka dot paper on which I've used a Martha Stewart edge punch to create a ruffle.  Notice how I bridge the two base pages.

The red photo matte is glued to an 8 x 8 square doily.

The white butterfly is made out of chipboard which I embossed in white glitter.  It's mounted onto a scolloped circle punched out of glitter paper.  Underneath that are cut doilies and a pink printed doily.

I found out that when I want something to really stand out I layer, layer and layer. Doilies are perfect for this effect. The wooden flourish  is from Kaisercraft which I painted with acrylic paints.  You can see in the picture that the top is green and the edges are brown.

I then chose a floral print and cut out the individual flowers completely and then arranged them throughout the layout.  I used pop-up dots here-and-there.

The final touch is the name tag and the little girl peeking from behind the heart.

Hope you enjoy this step by step layout. Have a great and blessed day!
