I Love You This Much

I have got so many patterned papers in my craft room that half the time I forget what I have got, I was having a look through yesterday and found these lovely Prima Madeline papers.
I did a lot of hand cutting again on this page, I know a lot of people find fiddly cutting a really difficult, my top tip would be to use a small pair of curved manicure scissors. It makes it so much easier to go around all those little details, I find using a craft knife or straight scissors is hopeless.
I have cut around the floral border and then trimmed the outside slightly so that the background paper shows slightly around the edge. I have raised parts of the floral border up using pin flair gel to add extra depth.

I love using Tim Holtz tissue tape it is so easy to shape and is very forgiving allowing you to move it if you get it wrong when you first stick it down. I drew around the green circle in pencil before I stuck it down and then simply followed the pencil line with the tape pleating it as I went along.
The cut out photo of Rebecca wasn't quite big enough for how I really wanted it to look.

Today is the last day of my holiday sadly so I think I will definitely be doing some scrapping, Rebecca is jetting off to Turkey on Sunday for 10days (I'm not looking forward to that) and wants to make a card for the friends she is staying with so it will be nice to have some mother daughter creative time.
