'Simple Moments Together' Layout by Linda

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Linda has created a lovely layout to share today, I hope you enjoy it.

1.    Select your photos and how much space they will take up on your layout so you can mist and gesso-dab the background paper (Flowers – back) in the areas where it will be seen peeking out from behind the photos.
2.    Cut a strip of the Damask paper, 30cm x 5cm and punch the edge with the scallop border punch.
3.    Cut a strip of the Cards (orange spot) paper, 30cm x 4.5cm.
4.    Layer these two pieces 3cm in from the left side of the layout.
5.    Mat your photos on white card, ink in black and adhere to the centre of the layout.
6.    Adhere white string with liquid glue to the top of the banner die cuts (leaving plenty of extra string at each end for twirling)
7.    Add fancy edge cut with a punch or decorative scissors to the top of each little banner.
8.    Adhere the completed banner across the layout to give it movement – use foam tape.
9.    Curl the excess string at each end and adhere with liquid glue in spots on the layout. (I use Zig 2 Way Glue Pen for this)
10.    Adhere your chosen Flashcards to the side of your photos to tell your story. Embellish with a brad.
11.    Choose a sentiment from the Accessories sheet and adhere with foam tape to the bottom right of your photo block.
12.    Add extra title details with lettering stickers to one of the hand cut frames from the paper of the same name and adhere to the top left of the photo block.
13.    Heat emboss a few butterflies from the stamp set using white and silver powders, stamp another with coordinating ink, fussy cut and add to the layout to finish.
