Hello! I am back as a Guest Designer for August. Today I am bringing you a 12x12 layout created with the gorgeous Sapphire Days paper collection. The collection is full of beautiful blue and cream flowers, with a touch of pale yellow. The color combination is simply so soothing to the eye. I felt it was perfect to scrap pictures of my granddaughter when she was only months old. For my design, I decied to do a horizonal design, so i applied some texture paste using a mask, and sprinkled some embossing powder in a color blue that complimented the paper. I heat embossed it to give it shine, and then began building my design over it.
I used the paper on the inside of the cover page to the collection for all of the elements. I used different punches to create the base to the design. I die cut film frames, and 2 kings of torn notebook paper. I fussy cut the door from the Doors and Windows cut out sheet. And I die cut the circles from the inside of the cover page. I scattered some cut out butterflies on the page. The title "With Love" was also cut from the inside cover page.
I fussy cut the entire page of Sapphire days Flowers. It makes it easy to just pick what you want to tuck in the page. It is like picking flowers in a garden! I added layers of different flowers and leaves to give it dimension. I added pieces of corrugated cardboard underneath to give it depth. I am in love with the flowers in these papers. They are beautiful! They look like they flow so nicely on the layout.
I fussy cut the leaves from the Leaves 3 cutting sheet. The leaves are so beautiful and realistic looking. I chose yellow flowers from my stash, and just enhanced them with the fussy cut flowers and leaves. To finish the layout off, I splattered some white gesso and distress paint onto the layout. I also added touched of gold leaf on the page. It gives it a bit of an elegant touch.
I enjoyed working with Sapphire Days. I hope you are inspired to create a project using this beautiful collection. I am also enjoying my time here at Scrap and Me as a Guest Designer. It has been an honor. I will be back later this month with me last project.
