Hello Hello! It’s Michelle here today with a new layout share featuring the super sweet These Days Collection. I went crazy with the fussy cutting of those beautiful florals on the Home Grown paper again and teamed it up with a little texture and a cute photo from 2011..

I’ve taken another walk down memory lane with this sweet photo of Leila just before she was 1. This was from a mini photo shoot that was taken just in time for her 1st birthday and gosh did they turn out cute!

I made a little photo stack using the photo, white cardstock, a piece of 3×4 pocket card and some off cuts of the Good Life paper. I knew I was trying to achieve an open frame style layout using tonnes of florals so I added the photo to the bottom left of the awesome woodgrain  paper (Pretty Posies) and layered it with some offcuts of muslin for texture.

I added machine stitching around both the photo and the top corner of the layout using white thread and my trusty sewing machine. Only a few bits show through, but I like the hints of extra texture it adds to the layout. I fussy cut a frame to be the central point of the florals, both frames on the page were cut from the Wall of Fame paper.

I used different adhesives on the florals for a mix of dimension and folded the petals upwards to give them a 3D look

Theres even the addition of a wood button and enamel dots and a gold glitter heart sprinkled here and there…

Along the bottom of the photo I added the other fussy cut frame and used this as the base for my mixed font title. I don’t have very many black foam title words left in my stash so I needed to get creative with my title on this layout. The mini puffy alphabets are perfect in size to add to any title.

I used the same mix of florals and embellishments within the bottom floral frame/cluster to keep a cohesive look to the layout. How stinking cute is that face!

And a different angle to see all the pretty layers that came together in one cluster of goodness. You can also see I’ve added a massive splattering of gold ink around the layout to finish it all off.

Well friends, that is all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by to see what Ive created this week. Cant wait to get started on the next creation…

Until next time, Happy Scrapping
