Choose your card stock and one sheet of patterned paper from the main kit. Pull out some of the ephemera included along with five of the Prima flowers. Here's what I used if you want to follow along.
Cut two photo mats from a coordinating sheet of patterned paper.
Here, I used sand paper to distress the middle of the paper until the paper was torn completely through so the card stock was showing.
Cut a few pieces of the Prima adhesive rub-ons and place them along the distressed edges that you just sanded.
Place the rub-ons where you want them and rub them on as you would a regular rub on. Now peel off the front. Here's how they look with the adhesive exposed.
Sprinkle your embossing powder over the exposed adhesive. I used Ultra Thick Embossing Powder in bronze. The finer powders will give you a better image.
Tap off the excess.
Now heat emboss with your heat embossing gun.
I distressed all the edges.
I decided to double mat the photos so I cut a second mat from another patterned paper.
Start placing your ephemera.
Add your flowers and some leaves from your stash. Here, I cut leaves from card stock using the Prima Forest leaves die.
Here, I started the ephemera on the lower photo mat.
Now, start adding the leaves and flowers.
Here's the double matting along with some bling added along the top.
A photo corner along the top photo mat here.
You can easily adapt this layout to include three or four photos. Enjoy creating!
