New Flower Patch by Making Memories

Making Memories has done it again with their Flower Patch line! Once again, with a few pieces of paper, some of the matching embellishments, sticker letters (or stamps) and a little bit of innovation, you can create layouts and cards that work well for Easter or spring in general. Some of the papers remind me of heritage themes or perhaps even weddings.

Special Techniques I used:
  • a photo collage from Picasa (free photo editing and organizaing program...www.picasa.com)
  • stickles over sticker letters for a little extra flair
  • diamond glaze and ultra fine glitter over sticker letters for a little different flair
  • "chalk" the page with ColorBox chalk/ink to make it look messy (like the dyed fingers in the photo)
  • staple the ribbon...really stapling is OK
  • trim the rounded scalloped edge off of the round piece to "boy-ize" it
  • cut the pre-formed journaling card to fit your page and a whole new look
  • salvage the scraps!
Take a look at these ideas for starters, but then head in to Paper Pals...there are many more patterns in this line, some more Easter-y, others just springy, still others, even more versatile...all are beautiful!


Pin It!

Tis the season for Easter! I just completed some easter layouts too.

I like what you did with the ribbon. And is that felt on there too? Soooo cute!

And super clever alteration of the scallops to make it fit a boy. Who'dathunked it? I'm impressed, friend!
