Thoughtful Journey

My 60th Birthday Flowers

I am really enjoying getting back into scrapbooking, as this is where my real passion lies.

Last year I celebrated my 60th Birthday and I received 2 beautiful big bunches of flowers from my parents and from my sister, Lynette in the UK. I took lots of photos but here are the 2 I decided to work with.

Template Tuesday,Live with Michele….

I am creating a scrapbook layout using the Thoughtful Journey Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up!®. The Thoughtful Designs 12 x12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper works so well against the flowers. The pack contains 5 ‘Ombre’ papers with a shimmery leaf design all over. The sheet I used goes from a Calypso Coral to Petunia Pop, and picks up the tones in my photo’s. I also used a sheet of the Thoughtful Journey 6 x 6″ Designer Series Paper for my journaling. The colours with a little bit of Pretty Peacock pulls everything together.

The flowers used are from the Simply Zinnia Bundle and were coloured using Stampin Up!® Blends – Bubble Bath & Petunia Pop, Pretty Pink & Calypso Coral. I thought they worked well with the flowers in my photots.

Template Tuesday

For this layout I used a template found of Pinterest. This is a great way to get started in scrapbooking. Using your photos as a guide you can pull out the papers that works with your layout. Templates are a great starting point and you can easily make it your own by either turning the layout around or changing photo sizes, adding your own elements etc.
