scallop flowers... oh so whimsy!

Hello everyone! I am back! I have had quite a case of scrapper's block. Never before has it been so bad! Weeks! It was just terrible! I think that I have broken free though! Today I am going to share with you a layout that I did last night...
I used Basic Grey's new line, Sweet Threads. Using the Martha Stewart Around the Edge Punch, I created the background mat for my layout.

I made my flowers using scallop circles that I cut out using a scallop circle die from Lifestyle Crafts. Some I tore into spirals and rolled up and others I cut slits in and folded to create petals... I layered them and put brads in the center. I adhered these flowers with various sizes of pop dots. I free handed the swirls and used my I-Rock to add the bling!

For the date embellsihment I used a stamp from Technique Tuesday, It's a Date. My journaling block I created by using a mask that I made from Tim Holtz's Alteration, On the Edge Die, Scrollwork, some lined paper and Distress Ink. I used my white pen from Inkessentials to create the faux stitch look around my mats and title.

Hope you have a great holiday weekend! Happy creating!


  1. I hate scrappers block. I usually try to make up a bunch of embellies like flowers or fussy cut images out of scraps of paper, or get out my butterfly punch and scrap paper for some on hand butterflies. Hugs girl, I think you worked it out on your own! Did you see what I got from DH for my bday?

  2. glad I'm takin a few minutes to look back at older posts. Love the big flowers from the scallop punch another great idea.
