A whole week has gone by since I have posted. Why oh why is summer so busy?! This week, I'm hopping in to share with you our Ten Things product for Practical Scrappers. It is premade flowers!! I must confess. There was a time when I loved premade flowers sooo much. I bought them by the jar full and stared at their prettiness all day. I used them on everything from layouts to cards to hair accessories. Even on my calendar! I loved flowers!!! Then I met my hubby and his rock-and-roll style rubbed off on me. Now, it's all about dark colors and being messy. It's a good thing something like a design team challenge comes along to force me to use all the flowers that are still sitting unused in jars on my desk....
|Products used: cardstock, paint, floss, burlap, flowers: Prima, letter stickers: American Crafts, Authentique, Lillybee Designs, Basicgrey, die cut (always): Slice by Making Memories.|
Okay....so maybe I went a
little lot overboard on the flowers...but can I just say: I used tons and tons of flowers. And any way I can get my stash out of my room and onto paper is a good thing.
This stitching was waaayyy time consuming (I like using lots of letters to describe how much it was!) but I am so happy I did it because the end result was oh-so eye appealing. I love it oh-so much and it is oh-so pretty. And lots of other oh-so's. And what girl doesn't love a good sunburst every now and then?
And I used a bunch of different letter stickers for my title, which is pretty awesome too. This layout was all about being a reminder. A reminder to STOP and smell the flowers, appreciate the little things, smile and laugh, enjoy life, breath, and love. I like these kind of layouts that remind me to do something (especially with my forgetful memory!)
PS: Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project! I am so proud to design with an amazing bunch of talented ladies. Make sure you check out their projects too!
