Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd   -  BLOOM  -

Hello there,

I hope you all are dreaming of Spring, just like I am at the moment.  I am always amazed at God's perfect creation, and its seasons.
Today, I am up on the Scrapbook Nerd blog with a new layout using the new  free "Spring Things" cut file -designed by the Cut Shoppe exclusively for the store-, a few techniques, and the new Maggie Holmes's Chasing Dreams collection.

The title of this page was created using the Bloom image on the cut file.  By simply cutting the image, adding an perforated offset, and using the edit points, the image was created so that the bottom of the word would be the bottom edge of the page.  A similar look can be achieved by trimming the bottom half of the image with a pair of scissors.

To create the background of this layout, a few color shine sprays were used with the packaging technique.  The floral image was then sized so that it replicate a lace layer behind the picture.


A piece of  vellum was layered between the patterned paper and the white card stock. A bit of machine stitching secures the page together, and continues the texture of the page.

The title was then backed with papers from the 6x6 paper pad Chasing Dreams collection.   Some hand stitching completes the look of the title.

The picture  (a 3x3 in portrait of my daughter) was then framed with embellishments from the collection.  Here is the final layout:

Isn't the cut file just beautiful?  It was the perfect complement to this layout.  Don't forget to stop by Scrapbook Nerd Store to pick your free copy of this cut file.  Yes it is a free cut file.  While at the store, check what the Nerds have stocked in their shelves, there is so many beautiful new collections available.   If you have any questions on how this came together, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for stopping by!
