Fun Layout and a Birthday Shout out!!!

Good Morning bloggers!!!!

It is really starting to feel like fall out there!! This morning it was 59 degrees! I am actually looking forward to seeing the colors of the leaves this yr. I am a summer baby so I can get pretty sad when it is over.

Ok, so here is a layout that I made last week. This is the first layout that I have made using CTMH stamps. These stamps were loaned to me so I am not exactly sure about the name but I think it was called Cherish flourishes. Here is a lookie:


Sorry that I cut the bottom off but there really isn’t much more just the last part of that punch border!! I will do better next time! LOL!!!

I have not done the journaling yet.


I cut the orange flower with my cricut using the Walk in my Garden Cartridge. I cut two of the daisy flowers they only have 6 petals. I wanted a fuller flower so when I cut two I placed them in between each petal and that gave the look of a fuller flower. Then I glimmer misted them and after they dried I took my pencil and rolled the petals just to give them more pop!! Finally I hot glued a button to the center.

I also added two Prima flowers that I also glimmer misted and then added adhesive pearls to the center.

Then you can see the stamp flourish that I added from CTMH. I really like how they came out!


The sentiment is also from CTMH (not sure the name though)  I am really loving my Martha Stewart Punch!!!!

Materials used:

Patterned paper: Hobby Lobby

Solid Cardstock: Bazzill Rain, Reflections (orange)

Carts used: Walk in my Garden, Story book

Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch: Doily border

Prima flowers

CTMH Stamps

One more thing and a very important thing!!! I have to give a birthday shout out to one of the most important people in my life!!

You are the best bestie ever!!!!! Love you girl!!
