here to enter great giveaways. A huge thank you to Joy & Melanie for this peachy opportunity. Tune in the first Saturday of next month for my next project. (YOU WILL LOVE IT)
For my Mother’s Day project, I decided to do a 2 page layout in remembrance of my mom that passed away in January of 2007, who was my hero. I used the “Origins” line from Basic Grey, which is so fabulous and beautiful.
To create the layout, I built everything on the 2 green floral background sheets. I then added the 6x12 yellow floral piece to each side and wrapped the brown Stampin’ Up! ribbon around each page to cover the seam, adding a faux bow to the right page.
I cut the “My Hero” phrase from the Stand & Salute cartridge at 5” and trimmed off the extra stars. I also cut the shadow in the same size. The top layer of this cut is pop-dotted above its shadow for added depth. The “Mom” cut is from the Mother’s Day mini cartridge, and this was cut at 2” and layered onto its shadow. “Memories” and “beautiful” were both cut from the Home Accents cartridge at 1 ¼” and shadowed. All of the fun little flowers are from Life’s a Beach, and were cut at various sizes with layers and pop dots galore. The adorable mom with child silhouette cut is from A Child’s Year, and cut at 5” along with the shadow. All of the lighter colored cuts were lightly inked with Jumbo Java VersaMagic chalk ink. I also added some white dots with my white Signo Uniball pen.
