Today's project was made with the CTMH Sonoma papers. I absolutely love these papers! They were perfect for these pictures of Emily from 2004. The design was inspired from the TA-DA sketch in the CTMH Magic how-to book. Of course as I worked, the page took on a view of its own.
The frame around the main picture is one of the border strips on the sonoma papers. Then I added some clear buttons to hide the corner seams. For a little more dimension I added a ribbon slide and stamped the "Amazing" title on a dimensional element. The final touch to pull it all together is a little faux stitching around the page.
The flower was made with 9 circles punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch.
Simply fold 8 of the circles into thirds form a triangle.
Then adhere them all on top of the 9th circle forming a circle. I sponged on a little Smokey Plum ink and added a wooden button to finish it off. So easy and so pretty!
