Stamped Flowers Layout by Paige Evans

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

 Hey friends! I have a new layout to share with you today (finally!) featuring the Acrylic Stamps from my Go the Scenic Route collection and Stitched Swirl Lines cut file.

Love all the texture and dimension and the colors and flowers! So many of my favorite things on one layout!
I hadn't used any of the Acrylic Stamps yet so I was anxious to feature them on a layout. I had an idea in my head and hoped it would turn out. Let's walk through the steps.
First, I grabbed the 5 flowers from the set and arranged them onto a small acrylic block. I prepped the stamps by rubbing an eraser over the tops.
Then I grabbed a bunch of Altenew inks that matched as closely as possible with Go the Scenic Route: Crimson, Razzleberry, Rubellite, Pinkalicious, Pink Diamond, Blush, Soft Lilac, Maple Yellow, Caramel Toffee, Just Green, Turquoise, Sea Breeze, and Sea Glass.
Next I went to town stamping all of the flowers in all of the colors except for Just Green which I used only for the two leaves. I stamped everything on a piece of smooth white cardstock. Time for fussy cutting!
I spent about 2 hours cutting out all of the flowers and leaves and then bent/creased them with my fingers to create lifelike dimension.
I thought about handstitching the entire background of another piece of smooth white cardstock and even designed a Swirl Lines Background cut file for it. I had my Cameo 3 cut out the Swirl Lines Background cut file and then when I placed the flowers on top to see if I liked the direction it was going, I decided not to hand stitch because most of it would get covered up.
Instead, I glued the flowers and leaves in place and then followed the same cut lines with my sewing machine using white thread with a basic running stitch. Don't look too carefully as going around the swirls was difficult lol, but again as I often preach, embrace the imperfections in scrapbooking :)
I tucked a photo of Jane into the right side of the flowers and added the title "CAPTURE" in the white space at the top using the Puffy Word Stickers. Then I placed a "PLAY A LITTLE" Puffy Phrase Sticker at the bottom and sprinkled three floral Enamel Dots around.
To finish I wrote journaling with a gray pen below the photo and stamped the date. All-in-all this layout took about 5 hours spread over 3 days. I hope you are inspired to pick up my Acrylic Stamps from my Go the Scenic Route collection and Stitched Swirl Lines cut file to create this layout! Take care!

  1. Love love love this! LOVING those flowers, the stitching and that photo!!! Just so BEAUTIFUL!

  2. Love the flowers (some serious "zen" time cutting all of those!) and the machine stitching over the cutfile "pattern". It looks great and has so much texture. Beautiful picture of your daughter, too!

  3. I get a wonderful dreamy feeling looking at your layout. The lightness of what seems like soft floating flowers lazily drifting across the page is so beautiful. It's all perfect with your photo of cutie Jane and that amazing bicycle. ❤️K Bravo for all that fussy cutting too !
