Howdy! Layle here with you today. We've got a fun week planned for you - a Simple Stories & Petaloo Product Swap!
Both design teams have swapped products and will be sharing on our blogs all week long. Join us for some great inspiration as well as a chance to win a prize package from both Petaloo & Simple Stories!
Creative team member Mary-Ann Maldonado joins us today to wrap up the week with 2 summery layouts!
Nothing screams summer lovin' like the colors in the new Sunshine & Happiness collection. I have plenty of summer photos taken in our pool. I can see that I will be using every single bit of this collection!
For this layout, I wanted to use pattern on pattern. Making my entire layout pop with color! I combined the Petaloo flowers in my chipboard flower vase, with one flower dropping off. Here's my layout -
I love using clumps around my projects. Hoping that it brings your eye around the page. Again, I have used flowers on a boy layout and it works! It works because both products blend so well together. I do hope that you will challenge yourself to use flowers on your next layout. Double challenge you to use them on a boy layout!
For my next layout I used the Bloom & Grow
collection. Yup, this is how the entire 3 seasons of soccer went down. My boy was not a fan of running, sooooo sitting on the ball, picking flowers was more his style. FYI, he no longer plays soccer!!
How fun are the Petaloo flowers mixed with the Bloom & Grow collection? The flowers help emphasize the activity in the photo, don't you think? Definitely the perfect combo for my photo.
I decided to keep things simple with the flowers cascading down the page, collecting in the wheelbarrow.
I combined the Petaloo flowers with a few sticker flowers to create the clump. I removed the center of the flowers and added the rust brads to match the color of the flowers in my 12x12 paper. Also, the flowers were double layered, I pealed them apart for a simpler flower.
Thank you for checking out my project for today; I had fun adding flowers to my boy page!
