Webster's Pages: Old & New How-To!

**For my September giveaway, please go HERE**

Good morning to you! I'm checking in today to share with you a step-by-step tutorial for combining Webster's Pages collections! I love that you can mix and match old and new lines, and for this project I really wanted to try something different by combining two collections that you probably wouldn't think of putting together: Winter Fairy Tales and Once Upon A Halloween. 

So here we go~!


Here are some step-by-step instructions for putting this one together:

Step 1: I always like to start out a Webster's Pages project by doing a bit of fussy cutting, just to get me started.

 Step 2: I've used the "Ghosts" paper as my background. And because I like to get the most out of my paper, I've cut the middle out of it (since it will be covered up anyway) to use as the photo mat a little later in my project.
Next, I cut the "Little Fairy Tale" purple butterfly paper down to 10"x10" before border punching the edges. On top of that I layered the "Winter Fairy Tales Die Cut" Paper before adhering an 8"x8" piece from the "Night Owls" paper.
Finally, I added the fussy cut section from the "Little Fairy Tale" paper along the right-hand side to act as a base for my journaling.

Step 3: Now it's time to start to put things together! I've added a book page underneath the circle photo mat cut from the "Ghosts" paper.

Step 4: The purple Perfect Petals flower from the Once Upon A Halloween collection takes center stage. I thought it would be a great meeting point for my banners which were cut from more of the "Night Owls" paper.
Then I added some trims from the Everyday Poetry Trim Pack. Finally, I tucked a Florette behind the mailbox.

Final Result:
Details, details, details~! This is where I have the most fun with my project- piling on the pretty little things that bring the layout to the next level; from the punched strips and bling on my banner to the bows, title, and fussy cut additions- all bringing just a little more interest to make this project complete.
