Flower Power Blog HOP!








Welcome to the Scrapbook Pal Flower Power blog hop! Be sure to start back at the Scrapbook Pal BLOG, become a follower and leave a comment here to have a chance to win a Cricut cartridge of your choice from the Scrapbook Pal store!


For my project I decided to create a LO using hand made roses and a big focal point flower. I love this picture of my daughter all dressed up and quietly eating a snack on the living room floor:) I used the Cindy Loo cartridge for all my cuts, it's definetly one of my most favorite cartridges.


I used the Frame cut on page 30 to frame my picture and used Scor Tape and glitter to bling it up a bit. For the large floral image that frames the frame :) I cut the Flower6 on page 56 at 8". I then cut the layers for it. For my little roses I cut the small flower which is a layer piece on page 52. I cut 3 flowers for each single rose. I held them all together with a small brad and then crumpled and squished the petals in the middle of the flower together to hide the brad and used a drop of hot glue to hold it together. Then the remaining layers I crumpled and formed around the center. I love how they came out and were so easy! For the vines that the roses are on I cut the border on page 54. For my finishing touches I used Liquid Pearls in Bisque to tip all the roses and berries on the vines and Liquid Pearls in opal to paint my large floral piece. I also embossed the leaf on the large floral piece using Swiss Dots and used the white Singo pen to embellish the flower tops.
Be sure to hop on over to all the DT's blogs to see what they have created and leave a comment to win your choice of Cricut cartridge from Scrapbook Pal!
Happy hopping!

Very nice layout, I like the way you changed the paper for the grass. I just bought my first Cricut and the designer team's card creations are great for inspiration on all the variety of techniques to embellish on Cricut cuts. Thanks for the opportunity to win a cartridge.
