The Stamp Review Crew: Flower Patch Edition

Today we have another Stamp Review Crew Convention hop for you!  Flower Patch, my first MUST HAVE set from the new catalog, was one of the sets we agreed to use for our Convention display board.  I love flowers and this one is so funky and fun and it also has a coordinating set of framelits, which is one of the reasons it is a must have in my opinion. :)

I did two projects with this set, a scrapbook page and a card.  I decided to use a black and white photo of Janae for my scrapbook page so the colors in the picture didn't fight with the colors of my page. I used some In Colors on this one, Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush, as well as some fun and shiny silver.
I had so much fun layering these flowers!  The outside of the big flowers is cut with the framelits, but each of the smaller layers is hand cut, so it took me quite some time to get them all cut out! Totes worth it though because after layering each of them with Dimensionals and popping an In Color sequin in the middle, they look like store-bought embellishments to me!  Don't you just love the Striped Scallop Thinlit with the flowers, too?! I think it looks like lattice!  I chose to pop in some of the leftover silver pieces. I saved all of the rest of them, hoping to find a project for them soon. :)

My next project is a CAS card. These flowers are all cut out with the coordinating framelits.  Aren't those little dots adorable?!  I love that there is a framelit to cut all those little puppies out!
The larger flowers have little circles of Crisp Cantaloupe baker's twine behind them. I just love this stuff!  It's thick enough to add a lot of extra texture, and it coordinates with our colors! And at $3.50 a roll, it's a bargain. Can't go wrong there!

  1. Great scrapbook layout and using a black & white photo was smart. The colors work well together.

  2. Great projects! That scrapbook page is incredible. I love how you made the title.

  3. Love your sweet projects, Shana! That Thick Baker's Twine does add the perfect little bit of texture to projects and looks awesome on your card.

  4. What a lovely the flowers and the letters (just got this set and love it!). The card is very pretty!

  5. Great scrapbook page! I like the layout and the black and white photo. Your card is just so cute!

  6. First, I have to say your daughter is beautiful! And your page is gorgeous! The silver scallop thinlit with the random spots filled it really brings it up a notch, or 3 :)

  7. Your Flower Power layout suits that title! Those flowers are so groovy!

  8. All you time and effort really paid off on the SB page-- it is just perfect! I hope you create another so you have it forever.

  9. I really love the color scheme on the card and the asymmetrical design is great!

  10. Your projects are so different, and I love them both! The flowers on the "vines" is really neat.

  11. Two awesome projects Shana. Loved this scrapbook page the minute I saw it on the board at convention. Great color combo and the silver accent is so fun.
