You Make My Heart Flutter Layout

Monday, March 2, 2020

I have a new layout made with Bloom Street created for the Pink Paislee blog showing how to create a custom patterned background using a single stamp and the complete ink bundle.
Check out the process video to see how this page came together from start-to-finish:

I started with one of the butterflies in the Acrylic Stamps and used a rainbow of colors from the complete ink bundle to stamp dozens of butterflies starting from the bottom left corner and going up to the top right corner on a sheet of smooth white cardstock.

I added a photo of Jane to the bottom right side using foam squares to pop it off the page and create dimension since the background is super flat. Then I added a smattering of different kinds of butterflies, tone-on-tone, over the stamped butterflies. I used a combination of Puffy Vinyl StickersCardstock Stickers, butterflies from the 4-Page Sticker BookEphemera Die Cuts, and the Layered Butterfly Stickers.
I grabbed a few of the colored jewels from the Mixed Embellishments and white Enamel Dots and sprinkled them into the background. The title is a Cardstock Sticker surrounded by butterflies that says "you make my heart flutter" which I added it to the top right side. There was a little bit hanging off the edge so I trimmed it off with a pair of scissors.

I wrote journaling on a ticket from the Ephemera Die Cuts, added it overlapping the right side of the photo, and tucked a floral butterfly sticker strip from the 4-Page Sticker Book underneath. I placed a few sentiment stickers tone-on-tone in the empty spaces which I grabbed from the Cardstock Stickers and 4-Page Sticker Book.

This layout came together quickly by focusing on one element: butterflies!

I hope this page inspires you to pick up my new Bloom Street collection and try creating a colorful custom background using stamps and a rainbow of inks. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!

  1. SO GORGEOUS!!!!! Loving how you mixed the stamping butterflies with the paper butterflies!! And LOVING the rainbowed colors!! And of course, that ADORABLE photo of Miss Jane!! :)

  2. A half hour layout is epic and look how gorgeous !! I've eyeballed that ink set by too. While I have two drawers of ink pads, It's so tempting when they're all co-ordinated and rainbowlicious. I'm so glad there are stamps with Bloom Street. I love the images and they stamp really nicely. xK
