Spellbinders Pieces of Life Layout Tutorial

Hello friends, thank you for stopping by today!  I am have a tutorial for Spellbinders to share with you today - a layout - I love using Spellbinders Dies on layouts - they add so much and definitely help us to personalise our layouts. 


I don't usually like to scrapbook photos of myself but as the 'Memory Keeper' of the family I need to make sure I am included somewhere - and I knew which dies I wanted to use with this photo taken by my DH quite a few years ago - you can see how easy it is as you follow along with the Step by Step Tutorial.

1. Cut/emboss the photo using Matting Basics A Card Creator 
2. Lightly sand around the embossed edges of the photo using a sanding block.
3. Layer the photo onto Corrugated card board using strong tape.

7. Adhere to the lower right hand corner of the corrugated card.
8. Glue the Cameo to the centre of the heart.

9. Cut/emboss two Textured Flowers Etched Dies #2 and four #1 (#1 being the smallest) using cream card stock paper; followed by two sets of small leaves.
10. Sponge the centre of  the flowers using Golden Glitz Ink; layer the flowers using 3D Foam Squares onto the lower left side of the photo
