Stephanie uses the Elements as embellishments

Hello Bloggers

'Hi, it’s Stephanie here with a layout of some pictures of my daughter and niece when they were on their trip through London and Europe last summer. As soon as I saw the new Elements papers and tags from Meg’s Garden I knew they would be perfect for the pictures of them in Paris. I printed the pictures out in sepia colors to go along with the paper colors better.

I used some background paper from my stash and then cut out the “Paris” tag and a blank tag from the “Vintage Ornate Tags” sheet and I then printed the date and names out onto the blank tag. I double matted the photos with a light and dark brown cardstock. I cut a piece approximately 4x6 from the “Vintage French Writing” paper which I inked over with some Vintage photo distress ink. I also cut out a strip from the “French Cinema” paper and one of the clocks from the “Old World Time” sheet. I distressed all my papers and tags etc with my distress tool and with distress ink and layered them as shown.

I wanted to use this beautiful organza lace flower and leaves from Meg’s Garden on the layout and also a few small cream colored Prima flowers from my stash along with some small die cut leaves as well as a tiny handmade rosebud that I put between the torn paper. To finish the layout off I printed off a graphic of the Eiffel tower and used some pop dots on it for a 3D look.'

Fabulous use  of the Elements as embellishments on this Layout - well done Stephanie

Bye for now


  1. Lovely photos for some beautiful paper and embellishments. I especially love the tags behind the photos and the large flower (which I've used myself).

  2. A soft and beautiful page....I love the organza lace flower and all the Parisian elements :)
