Hey there Pebbles friends and fans, Becki here to share with you a fun quilted Mother’s Day layout and card set that I created with a combination of the TeaLightful collection, the Sunshiny Days collection, and the Lullaby collection. I chose bright patterns that mostly had smaller tone on tone prints, as well as some of the branding strips from the patterned papers. White cardstock was my base for both the Mother’s Day layout and the card. I wanted a blank slate to showcase the fun quilt blocks. When I began this project, I wasn’t intending to create a card but I had a few bits and pieces left from the quilted pieces I created for the layout.
For the Mother’s Day layout, I began by cutting lots of 12×2 strips of patterned paper. Then, I adhered them to a piece of 12×2 white cardstock.
After I had a few 12×2 strips, I trimmed them down into 2″ squares.
When I had a little pile of 2×2 squares, I stitched down the center of each strip using white thread on my sewing machine. After all the stitching was finished, I began adhering the squares to my white background, diagonally on the left side of the layout.
I added a photo of my kids and I on the right side of the layout. I used Thickers from the Sunshiny Days collection to create the title, placing it above AND below the photo. The journaling for this layout is simply printed on white cardstock, cut into strips, and adhered above the title. I kept the embellishments on this layout to a minimum so that the photo and the quilted squares could shine. Once the Mother’s Day layout was finished, I had a few remaining squares on my desk and decided that I would make a quick Mother’s Day card as well, using only the leftover supplies.
I LOVE how both of these projects turned out!
I hope that these projects inspire you to create your own Mother’s Day projects. Thank you for stopping by the Pebbles blog. Happy Mother’s Day!
