This is a closer view of the top. This project takes at least four sheets of cardstock. By cutting out the corners to make your layers look like overgrown plus signs, you get some leftovers that you can use as photo mats and accents. I used the sentiment from the new CTMH Wavy Blooms stamp set on the top. I heat embossed it with Ranger platinum embossing powder. I love the color and it's super fine.
This is what it looks like exploded when you take the top off. There is a place for 12 pictures if you use just the top side each layer. I wish I had taken pictures of each layer before I put it together to show. I tried not to over decorate the photo mats because it doesn't leave much room for pictures when you do.
I made this one very generic because I didn't have a clue what kind of pictures she would be putting in it. You could really make these personal and specific for certain holidays or events. Mother's day is coming up and this would be a really nice keepsake. Definitely a labor of love.
That's it for me tonight. I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by!
