Love Grows Here Layout by Kelly Daye

Friday, June 17, 2022

 Hi everyone! Kelly Daye here celebrating the beginning of garden season in Edmonton. I’ve used Paige’s beautiful Splendid collection with her Flower Dots Frame Cut File and cut it from Paper 5. I used a pink paper from Paige’s Truly Grateful collection to back the flowers but if you have Splendid Paper 23, it would be absolutely perfect! I just love the fresh and vibrant green from the B-side of Paper 10 and used it to paper-back the flower centers.

I made a mauve inner offset for my frame using Paper 4. While adding more depth to the design, it also introduced a third color. For even more texture, I made an offset of the entire cut file from white cardstock to give me a nice sturdy edge to chain stitch the entire frame with 6 strands of white DMC Floss. Paige’s Flower Garden Stencil with white modeling paste added a nice detail to the center of the frame. You can cut the exact stencil from cardstock using Stencil Set 1 available in Paige’s Etsy Shop. A square frame from the Cross Stitch Kit couldn’t have been more perfect! Once stitched, I popped it up in the middle of the cut file with more 3D foam tape and embellished all around it. There’s lots of flowers, leaves, butterflies, a lemon, gold epoxy hearts and some colorful Enamel Dots. I wanted a few more leaves, so I used the leafy branch from the Acrylic Stamps with gold Archival Ink on vellum then fussy cut out three to add to the floral collages. My title, ‘Love Grows Here’ is from the Ephemera Die Cuts, again the colors are perfect!

Happy gardening to my northern friends!
