I had several pictures of Hannah from September that I wanted to put together. They were mostly various shots of her face--playing outside, at the beach, and so on. I used SU! paper, Flowers for You on the top and cut corner shapes out of it, which I set eyelets and threaded ribbon through. I used Certainly Celery POP paper to make a pocket/envelope, which there are 2 pics coming out of (layered on Certainly Celery. My base paper is Almost Amethyst. I used my round tab punch to punch a tab out of Rose Red, and also to make decorative corners for 2 pictures. (I can post pictures of this technique if you want clarification) I used my Sweet Shapes set to make a accent piece, which I copied from the latest SU! Stampin' Success magazine. I stamped on white, layered on Rose Red, layered on So Saffron, and edged that with DP. I used the tag punch on Certainly Celery to pull out of these layers, which I journaled on. When I stamped on the White layer, I used a dimensional stamping technique with the butterflies: stamp once with Rose Red ink, then slightly off stamp again with So Saffron. I also did this with Certainly Celery, and then stamped again, without reinking, slightly off. This helps create movement and dimension to an image. It's quite easy to do with a solid image, like a butterfly. I'll post more about this technique again. Comment if you have questions. For the title, I used chipboard letters, which I inked with basic brown, or I layered Certainly Celery POP paper on. I do this by tracing the letter, cutting out, and adhering on. Then I sand the edges to smooth them out and give them texture. By inking the letters, I put the chipboard directly on the inkpad and wipe away. Kinda messy!
