Learning from Becca

Becca's Amazing paper grace blog has some fabulous tutorials on it.  This is her latest one with the fan folding. I used prima papers on these and lots of bling. Spellbinders die cuts for the frame and Cheery Lynn Die cuts for the doily. The flower is under her tutorials also.  I realized after I got it done that it would be much easier to score the paper first before cutting it with the doily die cut.  Be sure to check out her blog it is AMAZING!
