Good Days & Handmade Flowers

It's Sunday... and I'm wishing it's another long weekend like the last. Today, I'm sharing a layout about how I spent my long weekend... I had some really fun and good days! I didn't take any photos other than this photo of fresh, vibrant strawberries at the Union Square Farmer's Market to represent my sweet weekend with great company.


I was inspired by Crate Paper's June color challenge to use pink, yellow, and red. I love the combo because it's so fun and a summery combo. Crate Paper's Neighborhood collection was perfect for the challenge.


I was also inspired to scraplift by these two challenges:

I decided to scraplift this layout in the CK gallery and featured on the CK blog as May 16 scrapbooking inspiration. Inspired by the stacked pattern strips, I recreated the look with beautiful patterns from Crate Paper. The strips are perfect to record last weekend's events.

Here's a closer look at one of my favorite parts of the layout, the sun embellishment:
  • I cut hexagon shape from Crate Paper pattern paper
  • I then cut additional paper strips in shape of ribbons and adhere to hexagon shape
  • I brushed on Mod Podge on the strips and sprinkled glitter on it
  • Lastly, I added a button to the middle of the sun


Crate Paper pattern papers and cardstock stickers; Bazzill Swiss dots card stock; My Little Shoebox alphabet stickers; EK Success border punch; Martha Stewart glitter; 3-D Glue Dots; Bic Mark-it markers

Next, I wanted to share a couple of flowers I created using pretty Cosmo Cricket pattern papers for the CK Flower Fabrication Fiesta. I love that the flowers are so simply made just by using heart shaped punches.



Used: Cosmo Cricket pattern papers; EK Success Paper Shapers heart punch; Martha Stewart punch; scallop scissors; buttons from Michael's
