For this hop I decided to feature our new Rustic Home Fundamental paper with some flowers from our new Flower Market Cricut Collection.
I created this one page layout to put in a frame as a special gift to my niece. She is getting married in September and when I saw this picture I knew that it had to go on the Rustic Home paper. I added a hint of our Color of the Year - Seaglass. You can see it behind my photo as a photo mat. I also used Sea Glass Glitter paper for some fun hearts and "love" that I cut with our brand new thin cuts! I was surprised at how easy it was to cut the Glitter paper with my thin cuts. Oh and I added a piece of paper from the Fundamental Whimsy Paper Pack! See the crystal blue cross-stitch paper peeking from behind the photo mat?
I've been doing a lot of watercolor splatter on some layouts lately so I decided to splatter some white watercolor paint in the corner of this page. Look closely and you can see it.
I wanted a lot of dimension to this page so I used our new Flower Market cricut cartridge to cut out some chrysanthemums and daises. I believe the chrysanthemums have about 9 layers of petals but no rolling here - just stick a glue dot on and layer! I cut them in Glacier and Crystal Blue cardstock and I sponge daubed them with Crystal Blue ink before putting them together. The daisies are cut from Pomegranate and Canary Cardstock. I inked these in the same colors as well. Adding ink to your petals makes gives them a softer look.
