Pick-Me-Up Floral Page

Monday, February 19, 2018

Hi everybody! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are excited about everything in store for the upcoming days! This week the Pink Paislee Design Team is sharing pages using my new Pick-Me-Up scrapbooking collection and today I have a layout and process video!
First, sit back and relax and watch the process video to see how this layout was made from start-to-finish:
Now for written instructions for those who learn better that way - we all learn differently! I started by placing all of my Silhouette cut files that had potential to be used on a page featuring flowers and leaves. I used Rolled Flower 1, Rolled Flower 2, Rolled Flower 3, Rolled Flower 4, Rolled Flower 5, Flower Garden Background, Branch, a deconstructed version of the Flower Vase, and the Flower Cluster cut files.
I went through all of the Pick-Me-Up patterned papers and pulled out the solid pinks, reds, purples, yellows, and blues. Then I trimmed the pink patterned papers to 4" square, die cut 10 rolled flowers from them using my Silhouette Cameo 3, and assembled them with hot glue. Next I die cut larger solid flowers for bases for the rolled flowers again from pink, red, and purple papers. I curled up the flower petal edges for added dimension. I cut a few more flowers with open centers from the yellow patterned papers. I die cut all kinds of branches and leaves from blue patterned papers as well as smaller leaves and branches from white cardstock. Lastly, I die cut the entire Flower Garden Background from Paper 10 - the one with all the squares of different patterns.
Once everything was cut and the rolled flowers were assembled it was time to pick a background paper! I chose the light pink paper with gold foil polka dots from the 12x12 Paper Pad. I had also thought about creating the layout on a royal blue paper, but I like how the flowers stood out more against the pink paper.
I began clustering the largest flowers in the middle and then tucked the leaves around the edges. Then came more flowers spreading out to the corners and then I picked little clusters from the Flower Garden Background to fill in all of the gaps.
Recently my daughter and I took a bunch of snuggling selfies on the couch and I couldn't wait to document this precious moment in time. I love that Jane still loves to snuggle and I will savor these moments! I printed two photos, leaving a white edge, and added them below the flower background.
Since the background was so busy I wanted it to be the main design element and kept everything else super simple - all I did to finish was add "love" and "today" Chipboard Stickers at the bottom of the pictures and then journaled below with my favorite .03 black precision pen.
I hope you are inspired by this layout to create a pretty floral background using Pick-Me-Up!
