Hello Beautiful Layout by Maija Männistö

Saturday, June 20, 2020

Hi, Maija Männistö here to share a layout full of summer and Bloom Street! Today we celebrate Midsummer, or Juhannus as we call it - the celebration of summer, sun, and flowers! So what a more perfect layout to share today than this one filled with flowers?!
This lovely little girl arrived into the world this spring and I became her godmother. I wanted to make a layout that shows off the joy she brings to the world and I believe this does it! I wanted to have lots of flowers and have them burst out of the Envelope, cut from Paper 05. For the flowers I used three different styles of Layered Flower cut files. To make them even more dimensional I altered the positioning for pairs of layers. I used the 12x12 Paper Pad and the 6x8 Paper Pad to cut the flowers with three patterned papers on each of the flowers. I used a rounding tool to curve the edges of each flower and bent them up. For some of the flowers I put a clear rhinestone in the middle from the Mixed Embellishments.

In addition to the flowers I also added three different styles of Layered Butterflies. I used the same patterned papers for the butterflies, matching small butterflies to the bigger flowers and vice versa. I slipped some of the flowers into the envelope and on top placed the photo, backed with a pink polkadot paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. For the title I mixed a sticker from the Puffy Vinyl Stickers and the Cardstock Stickers, keeping it quite simple as the rest of the page is so full of loveliness.

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