**********************************************************
Here’s how I created this project…

1. Begin by trimming ½ inch off 2 sides of Melissa Frances “Newsprint” paper. “Wreaths of Glory” will be your back ground, so have it handy as well.
 2. Distress edges of back ground paper slightly and ink using distress ink. Distress “Newsprint” paper more severely and ink as well. Spritz with water and curl distressed edges to suit your taste.
3. Stitch using sewing machine approx 1/3” inside edge, allowing paper to fold and curl.
 4. Cut cream cardstock into 2x8” strip. Using repositionable tape, tape scalloped edge from Classic Edges One and decorative insert from Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities to edge of cardstock. Cut and emboss using Grand Calibur ® machine. Ink edges.
 5. Trim “Dotted Kraft” paper and distress using technique described in step 2. Adhere edges from step 4 under top and bottom. Curl slightly. Adhere to page and machine stitch in place.
 6. Repeat step 5 using “Antonia” paper.
7. Repeat using “Kraft Damask” paper.
8. Trim piece of “Octavia” and a strip of "Antonia". Distress and stitch both pieces in place as shown.
 9. Trim cream cardstock to 8” wide. Tape Classic Ric Rac Edger onto edge, followed by both decorative inserts. Cut and emboss.
 10. Remove Ric Rak cutting edge and floral decorative insert. LEAVE DIAMOND DECORATIVE INSERT IN PLACE. Align edger and floral decorative insert on other side. Lay on cutting plate with the already cut portion sticking out the top. This is to keep it from being “smooshed” during the cutting and embossing of this portion. Now run thru Grand Calibur to cut and again to emboss.
 11. You will notice that the remainder of the cream cardstock has a Ric Rac edge. Measure using that cut piece… lay ruler across top, again leaving some showing. Tape Ric Rac edger there. Cut and emboss.
 12. Ink edges and curl edges of both pieces from step 10 and 11 around a pencil, curling them up. Adhere together, keeping adhesive away from edges. Add pearls and small amount of liquid pearls.
 13. Sand edges of 4x6 photo and adhere to page. Layer decorative border that we just created over bottom edge and adhere. NOTE: You may need to trim ends slightly to make fit properly.
14. Using Bitty Blossoms, cut/emboss 2 lrg blossoms (Photo shows one already rolled for you) and 2 med blossoms using Melissa Frances Crepe paper. Also cut and emboss 2 of each leaf from this set using “First Class Mail” paper. Ink all pieces. Roll flowers to create blossoms. I adhered these using a hot glue gun… due to the delicate nature of them, and also the need for it to dry fast. I then added a drop of hot glue into the center and added an antique copper brad.
15. Cut Picot Edge circles die # 3 (With #1 being the smallest) using crepe paper.
16. Arrange leaves and blossoms over Picot Edge circle and adhere all to bottom left corner of photo.
17. Using Lacey Nested Pennants, use ribbon dies (I used both long and short one) to cut/emboss 6 pieces. Ink thru template.
18. Trim to all same size. Add alpha stickers
 19. Add foam squares to back and adhere to page. Also add SWEET letters. Add pearl between each.
20. Cut/emboss butterfly circles. Save circle for another project. Ink butterflies, add pearl and adhere to page.
 21. Print journaling on computer. Cut into strips, adhere.
 And there you have your completed scrapbook page!
