Flower Power Blog Hop

Hey there! Welcome to the totally awesome FLOWER POWER blog hop sponsored by Scrapbookpal.com, the place of great customer service and FREE SHIPPING on orders over 25.00! WOOHOOO! You should have arrived from super creative Jamie ; if you just happened upon my blog today I encourage you to start at the beginning since Scrapbookpal.com is giving away a FREE CARTRIDGE. This time around we were asked to use ANY cricut cartridge that Scrapbookpal.com carries that has FLOWERS on it! You would think FLOWERS would be easy for me since I mainly scrap a little girl, nope no way. BUT I do believe I came up with something pretty! I hope you like it!
For this layout I used Forever Young, and Elegant Cakes. The sketch originally came from Sketch Support but it looks nothing like the sketch now LOL! I cut the flowers out at 1.75 inches, all layers from Forever young page 68. Then to get the various looks I offset the left one, inked the middle one, and assembled the right one as intended. Using a script background stamp I stamped the middles and inked everything with OF COURSE Chestnut Roan ink. Spun Sugar Distress ink was used to tone down the white background card stock. Budding is at 1.25 inches from Elegant Cakes and run through the cuttle bug using Swiss Dots, and inked with chestnut roan ink. Computer written journaling, inked edges of strips, added thickers, bling swirl, and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letters and you are done! I like it!

Now you are off to visit the artistic TAMMY WHITE. Make sure to leave comments all along the way. If you get lost below is a list of the order! Happy hopping! Flower Power!

  3. Super pretty layout. I just bought my first Cricut and the designer team's card creations & layouts are great for inspiration on all the variety of techniques to embellish on Cricut cuts. Thanks for the opportunity to win a cartridge.
