Hello everyone! I am so excited to share my first layout using the new Bloom Street collection!
Check out this process video to see how the layout came together from start-to-finish:
To create this layout I started with the B-side of Paper 13 which is a large LOVE title made out of flowers. I was immediately inspired by this paper and knew I wanted to use it to create my very first layout with this brand new collection.
Then I grabbed a craft knife and carefully partially trimmed around almost every flower and leaf on the paper. It took about three hours to do this because it’s very fiddly, but I love the results!
After I had bent up all the flowers and leaves, I trimmed a piece of light blue cardstock to 11″ square and used it to back the layout. You can see the blue cardstock peeking out from underneath all the flowers and leaves.
I printed a photo at home, trimmed it leaving a white border for contrast, and added it inside the floral “O” because it’s a natural shaped frame and perfect place for a picture! I added a floral bouquet die cut next to the photo and created a subtitle on it to say “This Beautiful Girl” made from the Puffy Word Stickers, the die cut, and “girl” mini alpha stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book.
Next I splashed watered down white acrylic paint across the layout and sprinkled on silver sequins from the Mixed Embellishments.
For a touch of texture and interest, I used a scalloped border punch on all the edges, backed it with a floral paper, and machine stitched in place.
I hope this page inspires you to pick up my new Bloom Street collection! I love documenting everyday moments with it as well as all-things-floral
