Welcome to June's Scrapbooking Global blog hop! Our theme this month is birthday or party themed layouts chosen by this months guest designer Marga Bultena.
If you are a scrapbooker or would like to get into, or back into, scrapbooking, be sure to join the Scrapbooking Global Stampin' Up! Facebook group. There's a TON of inspiration in this group!
I interpreted this months prompt a little more generally and did a layout focused on celebrating. I chose photos from this years Mother's Day dinner that we hosted. Because our family album is a 6x8 my layout is that size. I had several photos that I wanted to include so I actually have 2 two-page spreads.
I chose my colours from the bouquet of flowers my mother-in-law brought me. The perennial essence dsp coordinated beautifully! The accents were created using the daisy and medium daisy punches. It's amazing how much more texture and dimension little touches like inking the centres and curling up the petals adds. The perennial essence floral centres were the perfect finishing touch to these flowers.
I decided to do an insert for the right hand page and was looking for it to be a bit softer than a piece of yardstick so ended up choosing a piece of the so saffron vellum from the perennial essence vellum pack. To reinforce the side with the punches I added a strip of the dsp with a scalloped edge.
Because the vellum is see through I mimicked this same process on the back side. I love adding quotes to my pages and I came across this great quote about Mother's that I wanted to include. To dress up the journaling cards I simply stamped the daisy image from the daisy lane stamp set around the edges. It's the perfect way to tie in the accents and the dsp.
