- Mat the photo with white and gray cardstock and corner round the edges.
- Die cut 2 doilies from Bazzill pink cardstock using the Lifestyle Crafts Antique Doily Die and place them under the left side of the photo.

- Using a Die Cut Machine (Steph used the Cricut Expression) die cut the title from Bazzill Pink cardstock and Bazzill Floral pattern.
- Adhere title across top of the layout, adding foam adhesives to the "B" for a little dimension.
I love to create!. I teach in my home studio as well as at my local Michaels and scrapbook store, teaching a variety of layout and card classes incorporating die cutting, stamping, embossing, etc. My day is just not complete if I haven't spent some time creating. I often don't start with a plan of what I'm going to create. I let the products I want to use "tell" me what they want to do. I love to "play" with my supplies and I try to teach that to everyone. If you don't spend time playing, then you have no idea of the full capabilities of your products and the fun stuff you'll be able to create.
