Today I wanted to share a scrapbook layout that I made last month.  It is the Mother’s Day layout that we made along with the Father’s Day layout I posted a few days ago.

This is a two-page 12×12 layout.  The background is Chocolate Chip and along the bottom I stamped with Early Espresso the grass from Inspired by Nature stamp set and the flowers from Just Believe stamp set.  Then I sponged along the bottom to blend everything together.

On the left page is my title that I stamped using the Wonderful Favorites stamp set that is on the Stampin’ Up! Last Chance list.

The flowers are all die cut using the Big Shot die-cut magazine using several different dies – Fun Flowers Bigz XL die, Flower Daisies #2 Bigz die, Flower Fusion Sizzlits dies, and Birds & Blooms Sizzlits dies.  The Birds & Blooms Sizzlits are on the Last Chance list too.

The colors I used are Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Poppy Parade, and Peach Parfait.   There is lots of doodling all over the flowers, the stems (oh – those are free hand cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock), also around the frames and the journaling blocks.  Some of the flowers are also stamped, sponged or embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  A few flowers have brads in their centers.

The idea came from a page I saw in a scrapbook magazine.  I thought it turned out really fun and bright and cheery.  It could really be used for all sorts of things besides mother’s day.  Just change the title to suit your needs…..

Thanks for stopping by today!
