Fussy-Cut Flower Frenzy!

Hey everyone, it’s Elsie here and I’m so excited to share my first layout using the new Whimsical collection! Although I seem to say this whenever Paige releases a new collection, but this collection might really be my all-time favourite… I’m so in love!

elsie_oct11_whimsical_layout_1When I made this page, I hadn’t received everything in the collection, but I did have all of the beautiful papers so I decided to showcase them.

And of course, the two papers I immediately fell in love with were papers 03 and 14…

elsie_oct11_whimsical_layout_5These two papers are full of the most delectable florals, which are also so easy to fussy-cut. I fussy-cut all of the flowers from both papers and was left with a seriously large pile of the most gorgeous floral embellishments to use on this layout and future projects!

elsie_oct11_whimsical_layout_4I arranged all of these florals in a frame around my entire page. These make such a statement so they don’t need much more added to them, but I did pop them all up with some foam dots for some dimension and shadow, which helped frame and set the scene for my “night sky” design.

elsie_oct11_whimsical_layout_3Talking of my “night sky”, I used the purple ombre pattern from paper 08 as my background but customised it a little, by splattering some white paint on it to create some stars.

To create a bit of a separation between the flowers and my photo and to also emphasise my “night sky” scene, I cut and stitched a simple crescent moon shape using white cardstock. This moon ended up framing my photo really nicely and was an ideal place to write my title/journalling.

elsie_oct11_whimsical_layout_6As a finishing touch I punched some stars from white paper to add some more interest to the background.

I love how this layout was created entirely with patterned papers and I didn’t use any special tools, just some scissors and glue. It’s nice to get “back to the basics” and create layouts like this which are so easy to do when the patterns are as beautiful as they are in the Whimsical collection!

elsie_oct11_whimsical_layout_2I now hope you’re also as obsessed with this new collection as I am! Thanks for joining me today!
