Sunshine & Happiness Layout by Anita Bownds

Monday, September 7, 2020

Hi crafty friends, Anita Bownds back with you today sharing a layout using Bloom Street to create this pretty floral design. It’s spring here in Australia and our peach blooms are out. It’s my favorite time of the year. Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing, and butterflies are doing their thing!! It’s all beautiful.
I started with white cardstock and trimmed it down and then using decorative scissors I added a scalloped border to two sides before adhering it down on a patterned paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad, then I machine stitched around the border of the layout to add that pretty texture.
Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut out the Moths cut file from white cardstock, the Tropical Leaf cut file from Paper 04, and Layered Flower and Leaf cut file from Paper 09 and the 12x12 Paper Pad. Next I matted my photo on a paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad and 6x8 Paper Pad then placed it in the middle of my layout. I tucked a little tag made with the 2x2 Paper Pads, Ephemera Die Cuts, and Cardstock Stickers around my photo.
Then I added the Layered Flower and Leaf and the Tropical Leaf to two corners of my photo. Once adhered, I punched little flowers from Paper 14 to add more yellow to the background. Then I backed the Moths with paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad and placed them in two corners to add a pretty element to the layout. I finished off the layout by adding a few more little flowers fussy cut from Paper 12 and a few stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book.
I hope you have enjoyed my pretty floral inspiration today - happy crafting!
