Fine & Dandy by Paige Evans
Supplies: White (71081) – 12×12 Cardstock, Fabulous Fun (370061), Hooray (370068), Fine & Dandy (370072), Happy Day (370081) – Fine & Dandy Specialty Paper, 12×12 Paper Pad (370084) – Fine & Dandy, Thickers (370087) – Accents & Phrases, Cardstock Shapes (370099), Acrylic Shapes (370095), Paperclips (370103), Gold Rimmed Tags (370109) – Fine & Dandy, Floral Metal Dies (683713) – Maggie Holmes Confetti, .01 Precision Pen (62301)

How to: Die cut 24 of each flower and leaf piece from the Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy collection then assemble the flowers. I used hot glue to stick everything together and then bent up the edges for dimension.


Then on a white cardstock background, find the center of the layout and place a photo in the middle. Use watercolors to make eight big painted circles around the photo then adhere the flowers on top. Yes, I made way too many flowers for this layout – that just means I have extras for future projects! Write journaling with a black pen on a black/white striped round tag then tuck it under the bottom right side of the photo. Place a "Fine & Dandy" banner die cut under the top edge of the photo for the title then embellish with a number paper clip and chipboard heart sticker. Done and done!
