I decided to use the papers and embellishments to make a soft, feminine page celebrating my daughter and niece.
I immediately pulled out this pretty, light blue chipboard flower and the pink stripe paper. I knew I wanted those two elements to be my starting point. After I placed some key elements down, I knew I wanted a unique feature.
I saw those pretty flowers on one of the journaling cards so I grabbed my scissors and started to cut. When hand cutting an element, you can either cut directly along the line or add in a bit of a border color. When I cut flower clusters, I don't worry about being too exact. I tucked the flowers behind the photo and let it hang over other elements. It add a bit of freedom to the page.
I added in one more cluster to the top photo. I did this because it is my focal point. I simply placed to brads together, one big and one banner brad. I like to work in groups of three so I added a sequin to the cluster.
I did add in some navy and black because the page needed to be anchored. Having those strong colors gives balance to the page.
Have some fun and make a gender specific page using the Family Stories collection! There are so many options!
