Fabscraps Serenity Collection

One of Fabscraps newer collections is Serenity and it's a really fun collection.  Take a look at these layouts.  They are so different, yet they were both made with the Serenity collection, love that versatility!

 My husband and I celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary; that was a while ago.  We recently celebrated out 23rd!

For This Project You Will Need:
FabScraps Serenity Collection C77:
·        005 Peaceful- 1 sheet
·        006 Peaceful 2 - 1 sheet
·        MC77 001A Journal Pack

·        1 Sheet coordinating color cardstock
·        Distress ink - walnut stain
·        Flowers,greenery of your choice.
·        Martha Stewart punch around the page punch set
·        Rhinestones

  1. Cut a 10" square from the center of the cardstock leaving a 1" frame.
  2. Ink and distress the edges of all papers if you wish. I have inked the patterned papers with Distress ink.
  3. Trim 005 Peaceful to a 11.5" square.  Cut am 8" square from the center of 005 Peaceful  leaving a 1.25" frame.  Set the 8" square aside and center and adhere the 11.5" Peaceful  frame to the 12" cardstock frame.
  4. Adhere the 10" cardstock square from step 1 centering on the page.
  5. Cut out the center of the 10" cardstock so that you can mat your photo with the same cardstock.  One sheet of cardstock goes a long way when you cut the centers out that don't show anyway!
  6. Cut a 10" square from 006 Peaceful.  Punch a border all around the 10" square and adhere to the center of the page over the 10" cardstock square.
  7. Cut a piece of 005 Peaceful to layer under your photo and adhere about 3.75" from the right side and 3.75" from the top.    The size you need and placement  will depend on the size of your photo.  My photo is 3.5 x 5".  My layer underneath is 4.75 x 5".
  8. Use foam tape or cardboard to pop up your photograph.  Adhere to the layout as shown.
  9. Fussy cut Always Together from Journal Pack MC77 001A.  Use foam tape to pop it up and give your layout some dimension.   Adhere to the left side of your photo.
  10. Add embellishments as desired.  I have used Petaloo teal flowers and  Sugared Berry Clusters layered over Graphic 45 Metal Tags.  I added tiny rhinestones to detail the punched edges.
This paper is so fun, I went with a minimalist design so as not to cover up the patterned paper!
