Hi friends, it’s Heather Leopard and I am here today with a labor of love with this floral wreath scrapbooking layout. If you like fussy cutting and if you like mixing and matching die cuts and flowers, this is a layout for you. Take a look at the project and then check back next week for the process video I created for this project.
All those flowers came from one gorgeous piece of patterned paper from the Patio Party collection. That’s a lot of fussy cutting, don’t you think?
Want to know a little secret??? I didn’t actually fussy cut all those flowers. I used my Silhouette CAMEO and Pixscan to trace and cut all those flowers. I can’t say it really saved that much time since I had to set it up and trace it, clean it up, cut and weed it but it sure did save my hands from getting tired.
To create this floral wreath layout, I used two pieces of patterned paper for the base, cutting an 8″ circle from the middle of the top sheet and layering it over the 2nd paper. Then, I applied gesso and spray mists to give the background a bit of texture and color. Once dried, I stitched around the circle 3 times.
I also used a cute file from Paige Evans. It’s an adorable floral / leaf bundle, which I cut out of white cardstock and backed the leaves with green patterned paper while keeping the flowers plain. I did that because I knew I was going to stack the fussy cut flowers over the top. I like the mix of materials here. I also added a few fussy cut gold butterflies to the mix.
I left plenty of room to add a title and journaling and then sprinkled a few gold hearts around the openly stitched areas so they wouldn’t feel lonely.
Please check back next week for my follow up blog post, which will include the process video, showing how I scanned the flowers all the way through the finishing touches.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
