Ballerina Bloom Tutorial ~ Using Webster's Pages Trims & Sparklers

Spring is here! And for me, one of my favourite things is the early Spring tulips we have planted around our home.  A few years back we planted hundreds of tulips so that the girls can enjoy picking Spring blooms for our home, friends, family and teachers.    I so enjoyed having my first crack at using the new "In Love" collection papers and embellishments from Webster's Pages.  While they are just perfect for wedding photo's (and you WILL be seeing wedding photo's done with this collection come end of May.....my nephew is getting married!)...I do like this collection for other 'girly' type layouts!  I thought I would also share a fun little tutorial on how to use the Websters Pages trims that come with this collection and make some handmade blooms.

I personally love blooms that have layers of color.  So I took the pretty white fringe trim from the In Love trim kit and added a little pink tint to it with some ink.  Here is a picture of the bloom I will be showing the steps to.  Just follow the instructions in the windows to make your own! :)






You can of cours use a different ink for trim and a complementary color Sparkler for the center (the sparklers come in many colors) depending on what color bloom you want for your page. 
NOTE:  I get a lot of questions as to where to find Websters Pages products.  The best way is to let your local scrapstore owner know that you are interested in getting these products in (Check out the Websters Pages Inspire Me site for information on getting these products to your local stores ...you can earn yourself free product if you get your local store to carry WP products)  OR You can always order your product online directly from the Webster's Pages Website.....you'll notice that I try to link all the products I use on my WP pages to the website so that you can easily find the product you are looking for, just click on the product name :)

Thanks for popping in again! Happy Friday everyone, I hope you all have an amazing/creative weekend! xx

Gabrielle,
Hello Gabrielle,
I wonder what is the size of their projects. Pages are 12 "x 12"?
And the pictures you use, what is the most common size in your work?
I would like to congratulate you for the pages and say that their daughters are beautiful and certainly are an important part in the beauty of the work you do.
a hug
Didi
