Hi friends!  As promised, I have several projects ready to share that I created using the promotional Live Beautifully Paper Collection. Today I will share the first on my list.

CTMH created a FB page to inspire and encourage us to create Heritage Scrapbook Layouts using this paper.  Since I felt this paper was the perfect choice I got started creating.  This is something I have wanted to accomplish for a long time so I was appreciative for the nudge.

This layout features a photo of my mother as a teenager.

I used black cardstock for a base of this layout.

Using the floral patterned paper in this pack, I carefully fussy cut around the edges of the flowers down one side.

I cut a tag from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and added another group of flowers from the floral page.  I also added some random stamping from a script stamp from Prima.

The stamped flower images are from the Live Beautifully Stamp Set found here. I used Pansy, Blossom and New England Ivy Ink.

Another tag I created using patterned paper and flowers from the floral page. I inked the edges of all of the layers with Desert Sand Ink.

The frame was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I also added some stitch lines using our Stitch Ruler.

For the sentiment tag, I used VersaMark Ink to stamp the sentiment from the Live Beautifully stamp set and then added silver embossing powder. I set the image with a craft dryer.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment with black ink.

To finish off the page I added black and white dots.

You can find the entire Live Beautifully Collection here. 

Thank you for stopping by!
