Love Layout by Maija Männistö

Saturday, May 16, 2020

Hi there! Maija Männistö here to share a layout that is bursting with flowers! I created the layout with the Bloom Street collection, perfect for all your floral projects, and Paige's Love in Flowers cut file.
The gorgeous Love in Flowers cut file is deservingly the focal point of this layout. They fill a 12x12 paper perfectly! I used Prima - Pastel Dreams watercolors to paint the flowers with colors that perfectly match the Bloom Street collection. I wanted to keep the background simple so that the flower letters really popped from the page. I found plain white cardstock to be too simple so I grabbed my sewing machine and stitched with pink thread along the edges, making a border for the page. And even that was too simple, so I added few zig zag stitches on the border. And that did the trick!

The big letters offered a perfect place for several photos and I decided to add a tiny photo to each of the letters. We found a cute yellow bench on a walk with our puppy and he matched the bench so wonderfully! I made these small embellishment + photo clusters on each of the letters, using some of the patterned papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad to back to photos and create little flags. I added pieces from the Ephemera Die Cuts as well as some flowers from the Floral Die Cuts.

I also wanted to add sentiments to each of the clusters, so I used the Cardstock Stickers as well as the phrase pieces from the 2x2 Paper Pads. For the extra sparkle I added rhinestones from the Mixed Embellishments to the clusters. As a final detail I cut tiny butterflies from butterfly Washi Tape and had them soar around a cluster.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, have a lovely and crafty day!
