Hello lovely Pebbles fans! Terhi Koskinen here with a fresh green scrapbook layout cherishing the memories of meeting long time online friend finally in real life.
Last spring I was invited to teach scrapbooking to Paris, and as my sweet friend Cara lives close to France, she took a train and traveled to meet me.
Happy memories, as this is, needs to be scrapped with cheery colors, fun and happy elements. I chose my very favorite paper ‘Ferns’ from Patio Party collection and used my electric cutting machine to cut out lots of simple flowers and leaves. The cut files I used are free from internet, searching the word cut file via Google gives you thousands hits.
I started creating the layout by designing roughly were to set the photo, which title to use and how to use all the flowers. Then the idea of layered blooms came to me.
I took about four to six different sized flowers and glued them together adding the glue only to center of each one. Then I fold the petals a bit higher to make the layers visible. Couple of my first trials ended up to trash bin because I was too generous with the glue, but in the end I had eight big blooms to play with.
That’s not all for layering. I also picked up the Patio Party Ephemera pack and the Patio Party Dimensional Flower Stickers, and used them together to make a very dimensional vase, saying “Hello friend!”
Last but not least I wanted to raise up the embellishments with only one layer, too. I added Sticky Thumb Foam Dots under the butterfly, and also under the leaves. I’m almost addicted to have shadows and dimensional elements on my scrapbook pages!
Here you can see the adhering. These small dots are perfect to use, so tiny and the quality of the attachment is really good – sticky just as the name says.
Hope you find layering as fun as I do. Thank you so much for coming here today and have a happy weekend!
