Hello everyone! Thanks for joining me on the Creative Scrapbooker blog today!
As I was looking through the papers of Creative Memories “Forever Yours” collection; I paused at the journal card I have used on this layout, and started looking at the papers and embellishments so much differently. These papers didn’t lend themselves to only wedding pages and so began the starting point for my layout!
I sorted through to get a general idea of which patterns I wanted to work with and I knew from the get go I wanted to make dimensional flowers from the embellishment pack! This collection has lots of lovely patterned paper as well as a coordinating vellum pack.
Once I had my picture chosen and a basic idea of where to place things I started to play with building the flowers! I stacked, curled, bent and glued the pieces and LOVE how they turned out. They could have easily have been inked or sprayed to add colour, but that was not the look I was going for. Once I had them on the page though, I felt they lacked a little something-something! Into the laser die cut package I went! The black was the perfect “contrast pop” they needed to shine! From here, everything quickly came together. I adhered all my parts and pieces down. The stickers and leaves were an afterthought, I felt they grounded the embellishments a bit more to the page.
This collection comes with a gorgeous album, that sadly didn’t photograph so well in the light I had available. Creative Memories albums are a unique design that open and lay flat, so they don’t bend your pages!
Now the next hard part is to decide which coordinating album page to adhere it too, I hope to use the opposite side for other photos from this memory shared!
