Here is a project I did for a swap on the Crafter's Lounge. I needed to make a set of photo mats and an atc. My partner wanted a pink and black color combination to use in her daughter's photo album. Because her album is a not traditional size (6 x 12) I cut a sheet of 12 x 12 paper in half to use as reference (did not glue anything down as I am just sending the pieces). I made some extras to go with the mats so she could have a complete layout. I made butterflies, a journaling block, an extra block, and a title too.
For extra detail, I double matted and added a white smaller matt as a guide for the pictures. I embossed the scalloped mats and inked the edges. I added ribbon and bling to the mats as well. On the banner I added the faux stitching and bling. The little butterflies were inked and blinged as well.
