You will love the process video for Arlene'Enchanted Forest layout. It's always so inspiring to see how incredible designers create their layers and embellishments for projects. Arlene shows you how to wow with ribbon and papers and beautiful florals!

"I created this 12x12 layout of my niece featuring Graphic 45’s Enchanted Forest collection. This was my first time playing with the collection, and I’m in love! The imagery, fairies and color palette are amazing! And, the colors of the May Arts ribbon go perfectly with this collection!

Tip: Adhere chipboard behind your photos to strengthen them, but also to give your photos dimension on your layout." ~Arlene

This is a brilliant idea from Donna using A Ladies' Diary. We love this gorgeous desk organizer using May Arts Ribbon!

"Thinking of an idea took me longer than creating this trio of desktop organizer.But I had fun creating these. I think the colors are perfect for Spring! The Ladies Diary collection has pretty floral patterns and I am addicted to anything with flowers! I also used a May Arts trim that complemented the design very well." ~Donna
