I've been in the mood to scrap a girly page so I could use some new leaf dies I just bought.
 I found this photo of me when I was 17 years old while looking through a very old photo album of mine. 
My how things have changed! (hee hee)

I chose a color palette to match the rosy-pink, olive & blush shades in this gorgeous Blue Fern paper as well as the terra-cotta tones in the photo.  My design includes honeycomb shapes in the stenciling, punching and 
Blue Fern Studios chippies, which coordinate nicely with the diamond print along the paper's edge.  
Starting with the shapes, here is a close up of both the subtle stenciling & a peek at the Geometric edge punch.

Now for those wonderful new dies I just got in!! 
I order my Tattered Lace dies (designed in Britain/made in the USA) from Frantic Stamper.
This one is 'Meadow Leaves'.
I added 'Rose Gold' colored Liquid Pearls to some of the leaf tips to make "berries".

Beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts flowers in olive and blush look great on the chipboard that is heat embossed in Distress color 'Old Paper', which has a very light "olivey" tone to it.

I cut the Blue Fern Studios 'Collage Border' in half, placing part under the photo - 

and part at the bottom of the layout - (notice the honeycomb shape in the chippies & the punch?)

I'm ALL about butterflies!  And these Blue Fern Studios 'Bohemian Butterflies' are out of this world!!  
I wanted them to really stand out and pop off the page, 
so I mixed three Blue Fern embossing powders together to accomplish the right color.
I mixed 'Melon', 'Auburn & 'Nutmeg' for the main color.  Then touches of 'Cotton Candy' were added.

Blue Fern Studios '14 Karat' Imagine Ink embossing powder is simply WOW!

Because of the keys in the chippie, I added a skeleton key that I saved 
from my dear hubby's old shotgun rack that had a locking drawer.  : )

I certainly appreciate your visit and hope you can come back again some time.
Have a wonderful day!  Lisa : )

  1. WOWZER!! What a knockout! Beautiful photo, Lisa! Ah, 17, such a beautiful age...and just asking for this beautiful girly treatment!! I love the little pearl drop foliage, and the custom color on your butterfly is perfection! And I loved that you used a real key from something that holds a memory, as a shotgun rack would be symbolic of Call Master Joe's love for goose hunting! Love those personal little touches :) Love the recurring honeycomb pattern too! I have this same chipboard border and I couldn't figure out how to use it and I love how you used it...may have to "lift" that idea!! :)


Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! I appreciate every one of them!
