I Love This Lady 12x12 Layout

Hopefully you took a look at the latest spring issue of The Paper Cut, but if you didn't...I wanted to take the time to share my layout that was inside.
Mother's day is upon us - so it was fitting to make a layout about my mother using this beautiful Pure Bliss collection from GCD Studios. I love everything about this layout! It's my new favorite. I chose the floral paper from Pure Bliss as a background because of all the colors. I wanted to be able to pull colors from it.
I knew I wanted to work with the the blues, greens, and pinks in the paper so I pulled a few borderstrips and cut a few strips of paper. I played around with the layering until it was pleasing to the eye, adhered them together, and then did a little bit of stitching. I wanted all of these pretty patterned strips to pop so I added a yellow cardstock as a background. I backed the yellow cardstock with white cardstock to give it that extra pop. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut my title.
I wanted my mother's personality to shine through on this page which is why I used a lot of floral inspired papers. I have always related my mother to potted plants. They were her favorite to work with, and we always had a ton in the house...which is why I cut out an adorable little potted plant with my Silhouette Cameo.

Supplies Used: GCD Studios Pure Bliss collection, GCD Studios Nostalgia collection, American Crafts buttons, Silhouette Cameo

Thanks for reading! Have a great week!
