Today creative team member Shei Garcia Pena joins us with two Bloom & Grow layouts -

Hi there!  It’s Shei here today. I’m so happy to be back on the blog sharing two layouts. Let’s get started!  For my first layout I used the new Bloom&grow collection. This line it’s so cute! I really like it ‘cause it’s very nice and sweet.  I started this page cutting with my Cameo Silhouette the title on a white cardstock: “Separated at birth”. Then I glued my picture in a middle of the sentence creating this funny composition.

I really love all the papers of the line so I filled each hole letter with a different paper (you can see all the papers I used down below). I enjoyed mixing different patterns!

To finish my layout I added some elements from fundamental and expressions cardstock stickers sheets and some flowers from Petaloo all around the layout - the flowers match the Bloom & Grow collection perfectly and are a great addition!  I also glued some embellishments from chipboard stickers and some enamel dots. Oh! And obviously, my lovely Bradz!!


The next layout I’m sharing with you today was again created with the beautiful Bloom&grow collection.

As is usual with me, I chose white cardstock as my background ‘cause I like the brightness that the white color brings to the whole project. For this layout I used one of my favorites photos. My boyfriend took it after a very funny crafty moment that ends with my hands painted. I really like this pic, so I used twice, one in color and a second in black and white. 

I cut with my Cameo Silhouette the cool “Chin Up, Buttercup” paper (b-side part) to make one word of the title, as my started point. I used this paper ‘cause the print is like my dress, hahaha! I cut the word “PAINT” and I completed the sentence with the blue alpha from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers.

Next came my favorite part: the embellishing! For that I used some stickers from the Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers and some sentences from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers. I also added some elements from the Chipboard Stickers (this cloud is so lovely) and a few enamel dots to give dimension to my layout.

Finally, I stained with green paint (like my hands in the pic) and glued one of my favorites Simple Stories’ embellishment: the self-adhesive brads (I love them!!).

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post! I hope you enjoyed my layouts! See you next month!

Never stop smiling! Kisses!!
