Hey there! Popping in to share a new layout made with Bloom Street!
Live Life in Full Bloom by Paige Evans1
Check out the process video to see how this page came together quickly & easily:

I started by die cutting my Flower Frame cut file from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo. To get a clean cut, I used textured white cardstock by American Crafts, a brand new Ratchet Blade set to a depth of 3, and speed of 2. It took about an hour for the machine to cut this design and then I took some time to peel it off the mat and clean out any hangers ons.

For the background I used the yellow floral B-side of Paper 14, lightly adhered the cut file on top, then machine stitched around the edges to secure the cut file in place. I added a photo of Jane standing in front of a HUGE flowerpot under the left side and began embellishing.

I created one big cluster focused around the left side of the photo and used all the remaining flowers I could find from Bloom Street - there are TONS of flowers throughout this collection, but for the first 8 layouts I made with it I challenged myself to only use 1 of everything as if it were a kit I got in the mail, no double dipping into new packs of products. So I had already used a lot of flowers at this point (this was layout 5 of 8 at the time) but still found plenty in the Ephemera Die CutsCardstock Stickers4-Page Sticker Book, and even a few fussy-cut florals.

Foam adhesive was used to attach all of the flowers to create depth and dimension and I started by placing the largest flowers first, followed by the medium-sized flowers, then the tiny ones. The main flower cluster and title is a sticker from the Cardstock Stickers with "live life in full bloom" overlapping the photo.

 I scattered colored jewels from the Mixed Embellishments around the flowers for bits of eye candy and wrote journaling with a blue pen around the bottom curve of the cut file to blend it into the design. I trimmed a scalloped card from the Ephemera Die Cuts to add to the bottom of the photo and layered a floral sticker strip from the 4-Page Sticker Book on top. That finishes up this page!

With the help of an intricate Flower Frame cut file and a smattering of floral embellishments, this page came together quickly (sans the time it took the machine to cut the file and peel it off the mat) and easily! I hope you are inspired to grab my brand new Bloom Street collection and start documenting all your favorite memories!
