Leaf Wreath Layout by Amber Mitchell

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

Hi crafty friends! Amber Mitchell here on Paige's blog today to share with you a layout that I created using her Blooming Wild collection and Leaf Wreath cut file.
It's slowly starting to warm up here in California, with some sunny days mixing in amongst the rainy ones. To match that weather I decided to create a vibrant, spring-themed layout that features a bunch of florals and happy sentiments. I felt inspired recently by the beautiful wreath layouts Paige has created and decided to create one myself. I cut Paige's Leaf Wreath cut file from white cardstock then I chose my background paper. I opted for a bright yellow paper from the Blooming Wild Project Pad because I love how it made the photo and the flowers POP! For texture I added machine stitching in circles on the middle of the background. Then I splattered watered down acrylic paints around the stitched circles. I used the colors white, yellow, blue, and pink. I then glued the wreath down over the center circle. I love how the stitched circles and paint splatters peek through the leaves of the cut file. The photo I used for this layout is of my nephew from several years ago. It was so fun to work with this photo and since he's quite a bit older now the nostalgia was hitting hard! I chose this photo because the greens of the grass in the background complemented the shades of green in this collection perfectly! I tucked my photo behind the leaves of the cut file on the right-hand side of the layout. To embellish, I used A LOT of florals from the Floral Die Cuts. I created five different clusters of flowers, making sure to use a mix of colors, and included plenty of leaf die cuts as well. Once the clusters were adhered down (using a mix of glue dots and foam tape), I added some small statement pieces to each of them. On two of them I added butterflies from the Cardstock Stickers. I propped these up on foam tape and bent the wings upwards to create dimension and texture. On the bottom cluster I added a miniature rainbow from the Chipboard Stickers. I also added a bright yellow chipboard flower to the top cluster. I made the cluster around the photo the largest. I added multiple larger flowers and leaves. I also tucked a birdhouse sticker behind the leaves and then added a bird sticker on top of the leaves. To create the title for this page, which is "Hello, you are sunshine", I used two different sentiment stickers (one from the sticker sheet that is included in the Project Pad and one from the Cardstock Stickers). To finish off this layout, I added a few Chipboard Stickers around the layout. Three buttons to draw the eyes to all sides of the page and a tab on the side of the photo to add a small sentiment sticker finish up this page.
As someone who mainly creates mini albums, I still feel a bit out of my comfort zone when it comes to creating scrapbook layouts, but using Paige's cut files makes it a breeze and so much fun! Thanks so much for stopping by my post today!
