1.     Using your Delicate Asters Paper Pad, choose the background paper you wish to use. I have used the second and third image in the pad for the background paper and the seventh image for the photo mats. These papers do not have an individual codes and cannot be purchased separately.

2.     Adhere your metal flourishes to top and bottom of your left page and to the top and bottom of your right page.

3.     Apply your rubons, use the picture above as a guide. Unique will go in the top right corner of the first layout and in the bottom right corner will be the dictionary quote. On the second layout beauty will go in the bottom right side remember to leave room for the silver metal flourish.

4.     Cut 3 mats using the darker purple paper, I have cut the paper so the swirl image is on the right hand side of my larger photo, and 1 on the left and 1 on the right for my smaller photos, use the picture above as a guide. Cut the larger mat 19cm x 14 cm (this will fit a 5” x 7” photo) adhere your photo. Cut 1 lace strip from your brown cardstock using your Lace Border Die. Adhere to the right hand under side of the larger photo mat. Cut 2 smaller mats 11cm x 16cm (this will fit a 4”x6” photo), adhere your photo. Cut 2 Decorative top swirls from your brown cardstock using the Timeless Amour Die Set. Adhere to the back top of your 2 smaller photo mats.  Using 3d adhesive adhere your mats to your layout, use picture above as guide.

5.     Cut 3 Swirls from your brown cardstock using the Decorative Lattice Swirl Die and Adhere to your layout as pictured.

6.     Cut 2 lattice hearts from your brown cardstock using the Timeless Amour Die Set.

Cut 1 inner heart using your natural cardstock using the same Die Set. You will get an outer lace heart and an inner plain heart when cutting with this die. Using the inner heart die apply your Beauty dictionary description as pictured above. Adhere your first brown lattice heart over the top of the natural heart using glue and on the second heart adhere using a 3d foam,  only in the top centre and bottom centre so you can fold your heart up for added effect. Put aside until you cut your flowers and leaves.

7.     Using the Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster Pre cut stamp set, stamp 4 of the largest flowers, 6 of the second size flowers, 6 of the third size flower and 6 of the smallest size flower. These flowers are for your full flowers, you will also need to stamp 10 of the smallest flowers, these ones you will use to make the buds. Using a die cutting machine, cut the stamped images with the matching Delicate Asters Flower Dies.    

8.     Using the leaf stamp in your Delicate Asters Set, stamp 9 leaves. Cut the stamped images with the matching Delicate Asters Leaf Die.

9.     Using the Heartfelt Creations Beautiful You Stamp Set, stamp 5 of the leaf swirls. Cut the stamped images with the matching Flower Pot Die Set -Swirl Leaf Die.

10.Apply the dusty concord inks using a sponge dauber to your flowers, and using the peeled paint ink apply to the leaves.

11.Using a shaping tool and mat, shape your flowers and leaves. When making buds, just fold the flower in half. Adhere your flowers together using a good glue.  I like Art Glitter Glue, it also can be purchased with a fine tip, which makes adhering flowers together much easier.

12.Layer 4 large flowers with all sizes of the asters to create 4 flowers with 4 in each, biggest to smallest (total needed 16 flowers). Layer 2 of the second size flowers down to the smallest flower to create 2 flowers with 3 in each (total 6 flowers) you will be left with 10 small flowers which you will fold in half to create the buds.

13.When all your elements are stamped, cut and coloured, lay them on your layout according to the picture or as desired. Adhere your elements down.  I used the Art Glitter Glue to adhere down the remainder of my elements. With your white mini flowers, I use them to fill the empty spaces.  I curl my wire stems for added effect.

14.I love adding glitter to my projects. In this project I have use a wink of stella clear pen, this is great for adding that beautiful luster to flowers. I also like using glitter dust spray when you need more shimmer.
