Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans ! Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  Today I am sharing with you a pretty flower-themed project featuring the Botanical Garden collection by Carta Bella.  At the beginning of May, we went to the Tulip Festival in Abbotsford to check out all the amazing rows of different coloured and varieties of tulips.  So for today’s project, I created my scrapbook layout using inspiration from our May Sketch designed by Kerry Engel. Sketch for scrapbooking a 12X12 layout designed by Kerry Engel for Creative Scrapbooker MagazineWith the May sketch in hand, I set off to create my layout using the Botanical Garden Collection from Carta Bella which I combined with some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and ink from Ranger Ink, I was able to create my pretty Beautiful Day Scrapbook Layout.

Once I had chosen a card, I cut the card down to 3” x 3” and then inking the edges using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. To add some extra interest to the title, I chose one of the tags out of the Botanical Garden Ephemera Package from Carta Bella, which I also inked the edges using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. For the floral element behind the title, I chose to fussy cut one of the large flower bunches out of the Botanical Garden Paper from Carta Bella.

Once the photos were adhered to the mats and the mats adhered to the background patterned paper piece, I fussy cut flowers out of the patterned papers from the Botanical Garden Paper Pack from Carta Bella. Before adhering all of the elements, I inked the edges using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink.

After the photo was adhered to the background patterned paper piece using 3D Foam Squares and EZ Runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, I added a variety of fussy cut flowers.
