Shabby-Chic Flower Layout by Phil Donahue

Saturday, April 27, 2024

Hello scrappy friends! Phil Donahue here so happy to be back on Paige's blog with a shabby-chic inspired layout featuring Paige's Flower Cut File along with her gorgeous Blooming Wild collection!
These cute photos of my niece, taken on Easter Sunday, along with the distressed wood on my sister's porch really inspired me to create the shabby-chic style layout! In Cricut Design Space I scaled the Flower Cut File down to be about 4 inches in width then copied it three times. I cut the flowers from white cardstock and carefully weeded the intricate design off the cutting mat. My absolute favorite mint and white floral paper from the Blooming Wild Project Pad served as my main background base along with a 10x10" woodgrain paper from my stash over top. To create more interest on the background, I stenciled florals using crackle paste and splattered white acrylic paint in three areas of the page to add to the distressed look. I loosely adhered the flowers over each area of distressed stenciling and backed the photos with torn pieces of Paper 24 to mat each. I created lace floral embellishments to pair next to each photo which really amplified the shabby-chic theme. To create these, I simply cut a one-inch circle out of cardstock then hot glued strips of lace to create a flower-like shape! My title was placed in the center of the photos using a sentiment from Puffy Phrase Stickers along with a sticker from the Project Pad. Final touches were placing Chipboard Stickers, Washi Tape, and bundles of white thread around the page to add more texture and interest to the layout!
I hope you found some inspiration in this layout and choose to try Paige's Flower Cut File along with the Blooming Wild collection! Thanks for stopping by and have a scrappy day!
