Happy International Scrapbook Day 2023!
Here is the layout I made for my challenge over in my Happy Scrappy Place Facebook Group which is to feature flowers! Handmade, fussy cut, paper, stickers - whatever, however - feature FLOWERS! All the details about the iNSD festivities happening in my FB group today are at the end of this post!
For my layout I used a petal punch (it's so super old I can't find it anywhere anymore, but HERE is a similar one) and punched about 4 or 5 of the larger petals from a variety of Blooming Wild patterned papers. I ended up with about 125 petals. Next I folded all the petals in half to give them texture and dimension. Rather than folding them one at a time, I stacked 4 together and folded them. Then I chose my background paper which is a mint floral from the exclusive Project Pad available at JoAnn stores. Such a pretty color! I measured the center at 6" in and 6" down and added a 4" round photo. 
Time to start building the flower! I tucked petals under the photo, glued them in place, then continued adding petals tucked underneath until the flower was as large as I liked - this is about 11". To embellish I cut a label sticker from the Sticker Book in half and tucked the halves under the left and right side of the photo before journaling on top with a pink pen. I placed silver holographic mini alpha stickers also from the Sticker Book around the bottom curve of the photo to make a title and placed a Mini Flower Puffy Sticker before, between the words, and at the end.
To finish, I folded the top right corner over and used a Tiny Attacher to staple it in place. I replaced the corner with a piece of pastel grid Paper 5 and then tucked a small piece of a mint scalloped border from the Sticker Book along the angled edge.
I hope you are inspired to pick up my new Blooming Wild collection and create with it! Be sure to submit your projects to the FLOWERS challenge in my Happy Scrappy Place Facebook Group!
