Amazing Love - WeR Memory Keepers (Wildflower)

Hello my crafty friends.   I spent Woman's Day at Scrapbook Studio simply because I needed a change of scenery and I needed to be surrounded by my kind of people.  I spent the morning there and only fussy cut a sheet of flowers.  I was in immense pain at the time and it was therapy to be in a happy space and it was an achievement to sit and chat and actually walk away with something I could use when I felt better.  I recently shared the second page I made with the fussy cut flowers.  Interestingly enough both pages have a photo that was taken in a Botanical Garden.  On this page I am using a photo of my youngest sister, Ansie and me taken at the Kirstenbosch gardens in 2014.


Supply list:  Patterned paper:  WeR Memory Keepers (Wildflower), Paige Evans (Turn the Page); Cardstock:  American Craft;  Chipboard title: Penelope Dee; Alpha Stickers: Maggie Holmes (Shine); Stickers:  WeR Memory Keepers (Wildflower); Embroidery Floss:  DMC; Ink:  Distress Oxide (fossilized amber); Stencil: Prima; Border punch: Ek Success; Nuvo Crystal Drops (Bright Gold).


Some close ups:
 I adhered a strip of paper down the page and layered clusters of fussy cut flowers under the right side of it.

 The tsukineko gold embossing powder and the Maggie Holmes alpha stickers were a perfect match...as were the Nuvo Crystal Drops.

 I clustered more fussy cut flowers around the left side of the photo, using a lot of foam dots to create dimension.

 I embellished the flower centers with black Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I love how this page came together.  I adore all the fussy cut flowers...totally worth the time I spent cutting it.

Thank you for visiting my blog today...I hope that you found inspiration here♥

  1. Love your page special lady ... The fussy cutting really paid off.

    I am going to use this as inspiration for a page but will definitely not have those flowers as fussy cutting is not for me.

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring!!!!
