FabScraps French Heritage Collection - Angel Hope Dreams & Wishes

FabScraps French Heritage Collection  (get your collection here)
FabScraps newest collection, French Heritage, is dripping with charm, warmth and spectacular florals. The collection has accompanying chipboard and diecuts that make this whole set spectacular. 

Below is an image of the collection papers and die cuts.    The die cuts are cool because they are meant to be used with the chipboard if one desires - as a sort of chipboard covering. 

I created a soft layout in keeping with the softness of  the papers. If you scroll down, you will see easy step by step instructions to complete this project. 

My chipboard words, Dreams & Wishes was embossed with fine white embossing power but it looks a little aged because I did not paint the chipboard first.  I just embossed right over neked chipboard. 

Here I have added Prima Marketing flowers for my finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping for a look.   Visit FabScraps blog and Facebook page for all the new releases.

For This Project You Will Need
1.     Background Preparation:
2.     Start with FabScraps  French Heritage Butterfly Pink2 C63006  sheet.  Trim ¼ inch from each edge.
3.     Lightly dampen the edges with spray water or wet wipes.  Crinkle the edges gently with finger tips and blow dry with heat gun.  This stiffens the paper to form a nice rippled distressed edge.

8.     Randomly stamp text over page.
9.     Glue photo to center of page.
10.   Glue decorative border to the page under the photo
