Hey there Pebbles friends and fans, Becki here. I’m so excited to share a layout with you that I created using bits and pieces from the Simple Life collection, the Warm & Cozy collection, and the DIY Home collection. This fussy cut floral layout is one of my favorites! Jen Hadfield’s collections are personal favorites of mine. I love all of them!!
I started by fussy cutting A LOT of flowers. I LOVE fussy cutting. It’s one of my favorite techniques. I watch for patterned papers that have elements I can fussy cut. Not only are fussy cut elements fun, they’re also a great way to make your scrapbooking budget stretch a little bit further. For the price of one piece of patterned paper you can often get dozens of fussy cut elements that are great for embellishing. I chose three patterned papers to fussy cut flowers from. I knew I wanted tons of flowers to cascade diagonally across my layout from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.
This is actually a very budget friendly layout because I only used one piece of patterned paper on the background. I cut the paper into three pieces and adhered them back together on a piece of cardstock using both sides of the patterned paper.
I used lots of dimensional adhesive to adhere the flowers to the background of the layout. This step is optional but it makes a huge difference in the amount of texture on the layout.
I love the shadows that the flowers create!
I nestled my title and journaling under the photo, right next to the flowers.
I created a few different layers under the photo. I always want the focus of my layouts to be on the photo. By adding a few layers under the photo it draws the readers eye to the photo and makes it stand out against the floral embellishments.
I know fussy cutting can be a hot topic among scrapbookers. Which side of the fence are you on? Do you love fussy cutting? If you do, this may be a layout you’d like to scraplift. Thank you for stopping by the Pebbles blog. I’ll see you again soon!
