Sunshine & Happiness Layout by Anita Bownds

Saturday, April 4, 2020

Hi crafty friends, Anita Bownds here sharing another cute layout using Bloom Street of my daughter Eve riding a scooter. They grow up so fast! Eve will be 16 this year! Sometimes I wish they were small again... Now it’s all about makeup and hair :) I wanted to have a bright and fun floral layout with fussy cut flowers.
I started with Paper 14 as I really love the bright yellow and wanted it to be a border for my white cardstock. Using my Silhouette Cameo 3Paper 07, and Paige's Heart Sunburst cut file, I cut it to fit nicely in the middle. I then machine stitched on each ray to add extra texture then adhered it down with double sided foam tape to give it extra dimension.
Next I matted my photo on Paper 14 and paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad then tucked Ephemera Die Cuts in the photo layers. I made a little tag from the 2x2 Paper Pads to slip in the top of my photo. Using the Cardstock Stickers I added a title just below my photo leaving enough space to add all my fussy cut flowers from the 12x12 Paper Pad.
I then added some Washi Tape to the top and bottom of the white cardstock to add an extra pop of color and a bright sun from the Ephemera Die Cuts and decided to add the sun from the Cardstock Stickers over the top. I then added Enamel Dots to the center of the flowers and a few scattered punched hearts from the 12x12 Paper Pad and a few butterfly stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book and Cardstock Stickers. I finished off by adding some glitter glue around the fussy cut flowers.
I hope you enjoyed my Bloom Street layout. Happy crafting!
