He Picked Flowers

Hello out there!  Did you miss my bloggy absence?  I took an unexpected month off - my day job took a bit more energy these last several weeks.  PHEW!  But I'm back!  Today I'm sharing a layout using Crate Paper Hello Love...what an awesome collection, amiright?  And although it has a lot of pink in it, I emphasized many of the other colors in the collection.  Take a look!

I based my layout on the Spring 2016 sketch from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine.

What's not to like about that striped paper?  I layered some heart paper, the marbled green paper strip, some vellum I scalloped, and sewing for the base of the photo area.  It was a fluke that "so much love" showed at the bottom of the photo so I opted to keep it slightly longer to keep it rather than trim it to match the other three sides.

I created the title cutting "He picked" with my Cameo combined with those lovely Fancy Pants Designs alphas.  I used my Cameo to cut some flowers from Just Nick's Girl Power and layered them over the O.  I placed an enamel dot in the center to finish.

I scalloped another green marble strip and stitched it on the top.  I added another flower cluster too.

For the corner embellishment area, I completed the visual triangle with a third flower cluster.

For the journaling spot, I opted to print it out.  I used the font KG Always a Good Time to match the top part of my title.  I added more scalloped paper, stitching, a cut tab from the striped paper, and another enamel dot.

Et voila!
