Hello everyone! Welcome to a new month and week of inspiration here on the Pink Paislee blog! Paige Evans here and I have a new layout to share with you today using my new Bloom Street collection:
In every collection I love to include a paper with squares of different patterns. These little squares are perfect for punching shapes, fussy cutting, using to back cut files, and hand cutting letters to create a ransom style title like I made here! So I grabbed Paper 07 from Bloom Street, cut it into the individual squares, and then started hand cutting letters from each squares to say “I MUST HAVE FLOWERS ALWAYS AND ALWAYS”.
I distressed the edges of every letter with a pair of fine-tipped scissors to help define the edges and make them pop off the background. Speaking of the background, I used the pretty peachy pink watercolor style B-side of Paper 22 for my background.
Then I lightly glued the title across the page, centering it in the middle. I used white thread with my sewing machine to stitch across every row of words. This keeps the letters in place permanently and then I could bend up the edges to create shadows and dimension.
I found two photos of my kiddos in front of a wagon filled with flowers, printed the pictures with a white border for contrast, and then adhered them to opposite corners of the layout, tucking them into the letters to make them look like they fit in with the title.
To embellish I added floral stickers and die cuts around the page using foam squares to attach them in place, again for dimension. I wrote journaling with a white pen on the right side to finish.
I hope this page inspires you to pick up the new Bloom Street collection and create a fun hand cut title! Thanks for stopping by today, have a great rest of the week!
