We’ve had such fun sharing a bit of floral inspiration with you this week. We’re closing out this fun series with a post from Designer Wendy Sue Anderson, who’s created a lovely Garden Party flower bouquet.
Growing up, I remember my mom saying that she didn’t really like to receive flowers for Mother’s Day – not because the gift wasn’t thoughtful, but because they were expensive, and they didn’t last very long.
Well, won’t she be happy when she receives this beautiful bouquet? Paper flowers last forever! I used some beautiful pink papers from the Garden Party collection to create these pretty roses.
I found a cut file from the Silhouette store to cut out the shapes and assembled them according to the directions (hot glue was definitely helpful).
Next, I attached the flowers onto heavy gauge wire which I wrapped with floral tape. I cut the wire to different lengths, and placed them all into this cute little glass jar.
I wrapped a strip of patterned paper around the neck of the jar and tied on this sweet tag. I can’t wait to share these paper roses!
Suzanna here from Life’s Trivialities to share a layout laden with flowers with you!
I always struggle with gifts on Mother’s Day because my Mum isn’t in state and rarely, if ever, do I see her for Mother’s Day. Rather than send her a large gift, my gift to her is often a layout expressing my gratitude or acknowledging that special place she holds in my heart and life. I created this layout for that purpose.
We all have that association of Mother’s Day with flowers, don’t we? I wonder why? Perhaps it has something to do with the frosts and planting? I know here in Virginia, many nurseries are very busy as people use Mother’s Day as that safe date to plant things outdoors. Whatever the reason, I too planted flowers for Mother’s Day; a whole garden on my layout, just for my Mum!
A smattering of misted and die cut posies along with a few stickers and the vellum flowers adorn the page for embellishment. That’s it really, flowers, flowers and more flowers!
This title (cut file from Kerri Bradford), says it all about my Mum! She sure is some kind of wonderful! I feel like it’s my spider web message broadcast to the world in some way. This will probably touch my Mum much more than thing else buy her.
So true! I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Did you do something unique and special for your mother? Let us here at Pebbles know what!

We’ve been experiencing the off and on weather of spring in Utah and our regularly sunny skies have been a bit gray. Fortunately, we’ve been working on loads of fun spring projects and all the flowers have more than certainly brightened our day!
