I rearranged the pearls for this card by cutting the flourishes off one flower and adding them to the other giving me a bunch of flourishes for the right corner and the lone flower on the left.

Products used: CTMH Tickled Pink paper, CTMH cardstock (White Daisy, Crystal Blue, & Sweet Leaf), unknown grosgrain ribbon, DCWV vellum quote from the Love & Friendship stack, and Basic Grey Opaline half pearls.

Friend Card

This is my third post for the day so be sure to scroll down.  The kids decided they would rather play with friends than watch a movie with Mom and Dad so that meant more play time for me!  I am in love with these half pearls by Basic Grey and I was so excited today when I realized that they perfectly match my CTMH Tickled Pink paper!  (which I’m trying to use up if you haven’t noticed.)  The vellum quote is from a DCWV vellum quote stack.

Challenges:

Precious Memories

This is a layout I’ve had for awhile and it’s just now getting put in a book.  Supplies used: Heidi Swapp flowers, big brad from Target Dollar Spot, all others unknown.

White Background

Now that I have discovered the beauty of patterned paper I rarely use a solid-colored background.  However, the white background for this layout seemed to be perfect.  I traced the circle onto my paper using a plate (any circular item will work).  Then I simply added all the prima flowers with brad centers.  You may want to add an additional page to the back to cover all the brads so they don’t catch on the opposite page when you put it in your scrapbook.  Based on a sketch by Becky Fleck.

Mulberry Paper

Mulberry paper is a light-weight, semi-transparent type of handmade style paper.  It used to be quite popular in scrapbooking and has fazed out although there’s no reason why you can’t still use it.  I found this page from the past with mulberry paper and it also includes a tag (yesterday’s topic).  Mulberry paper can be used as a background, as an embellishment, or (my favorite) as a frame.  You can cut it for a straight edge, or you can wet it with a waterbrush or paintbrush and then tear it for a unique look.
