The beauty of the Sage Collection pack are the laser cut sheets included in the pack. All of the layering was done using the laser cuts. I topped them with the gorgeous flowers and leaves and tucked in the lovely butterflies. I sprinkles some art stones around the layering to give it a garden feeling. I dotted the clusters with the smaller Wishing Bubbles. I repeated the process for the lower cluster.
I fussy cut the photo strip from the paper, adhered it to the background paper, raising it with some corrugated cardboard. This became the focus and foundation for the entire layout. Once it was laid out, I began embellishing the entire layout. It came together so easily using the Collection Pack. The wreath was created by adding the leaves and vine from the Sugar Petals pack and the Pixie flowers. I die cut a floral wreath from kraft paper and added it for fullness.
Here is a closeup of the wreath I created by using the 4 stems from the flower pack and twirling them around the paper wreath, Then I cut apart one of the medium leaves and tucked each leaf in the wreath. I scattered some Pixie Petals on the wreath. Under the wreath I added a Kraft cardstock Spellbinders die cut wreath. I cut 2 of them and layered them for added fullness.
To add dimension to the layout, I raised the photo cluster and both top and bottom clusters, using pop dots and pieces of corrugated cardboard underneath.
The laser cuts make it so easy to layer your clusters. Add a few flowers here and there, and your cluster is complete. Adhere the butterflies by the body only, then gently lift the wings.
After my cluster was complete, I added some Art Stones and the smaller Wishing Bubbles around it for more texture.
Thank you for joining me and letting me share my layout. I hope it brings you inspiration to create. Be sure to follow the 49 and Market blog for more beautiful inspiration.
