What i love most about prima papers at the moment is the amount of cutting out work you can do to give your layout such an awesome dimension without hitting your spending budget on embellishments
This is such an easy layout to achieve


1 mount your back ground patterned paper measuring 10/10 onto black card stock this always works well with any layout as you can see i use it all the time

2 cut two strips of patterned paper glue across the layout as shown cut a half circle in card stock and place to the right hand side of the layout curling the edge

3 cut a hand full of flourishes and shapes from the patterned papers i have found if it is not to the effect that i am looking for i do tend to stamp and cut my own flourishes to give it more of a fuller effect

4 using two different strips of ribbon place at the bottom of the patterned paper cross and fix with brads add your photo snugly tucking the corner of your photo behind

5 place all of your cut flourishes as shown i cut three different size butterfly's out of the patterned paper layer using 3d foam pads

add the remaining chosen embellishments and add your title to complete your layout
