heartfelt creations products used in this project: 

for this project i used  KAISERCRAFT “chanteuse” collection. i stamped the edges of my background paper with stamps from HC woodland growth set and colorbox full size pigment ink pads "brown" and "olive". then i stitched a zig-zag frame along the edge of the paper.

i created the frame for the small picture with HC decorative oval window die. i cut the middle part out, distressed the edges with tim holtz' old paper distress ink pad and glued it on top of the picture. then i outlined the oval window die on a brown cardstock with a pencil and cut it by hand. i glued the brown base under the framed picture.

using HC layered scalloped posy die i cut a layered scalloped posy element from green cardstock; outlined the frame with a white pen and added few pink posies {HC posy patch flowers set} and/or fussy cut blossoms from the staccato pattern paper. i positioned the layered scalloped posy die cut above my picture, slightly tucked under the pansies-frame {martha stewart “pansies” punch around the page set}.

for the large blossom i used HC botanical floral 2 set and HC botanical floral 1 set and i cut the stamped images with shapeabilities rose creations die. then i embossed the petals and attached the flower together with a large brad in the middle, added glitter glue to the petals for extra glam.

i stamped the wind mill from HC barnyard elements set and the wooden fence from HC palisade farmstead set on a brown cardstock and die cut them with HC rustic western elements die. then i die cut four small foliage pieces from a dark green cardstock {HC decorative layered basket die} and arranged them around the fence and the wind mill.

then i fussy cut a few large blossoms from the "staccato" pattern paper. i stamped a few posies using one of the smaller blooms {HC posy patch flowers set} on pattern paper, embossed the petals, added a sparkly rhinestone in the middle and adhered them on my page. the leaves are made with HC distressed leaves set and nestabilities nested leaves die.

for the title i used a sentiment from HC daisy patch swirls set, which i stamped on a creme cardstock with colorbox brown ink pad. then i distressed the paper with tim holtz' tea dye distress ink. using shapeabilities fancy tags two die i cut a tag from pink pattern paper and glued the sentiment in the middle. i added stickles glitter glue to embellish the tag frame.
