Gather Wild Flowers Layout

Hello! I managed to make a second scrapbook page this month! I am so happy about it, because I've got a ton of photos that I printed ages ago, just waiting to be put on a page. Typically, I work only on 12x12 layouts, but I decided to do a 6x6 today, with the hope of perhaps making an entire album in this size. This way, I can make my pages faster, and get those photos displayed in a beautiful way.
 This week, the White Rose Crafts team is highlighting products from Altair Art. I have their 6x6 "Ever Dream" paper pack, and the ephemera sheet, which I really love. The colors are soft and dreamy, and i love the flowers and dreamcatchers that are on many of the pages. The background page I chose to use for this photo of my daughter is a soft pink. It's a little washed out in my pictures, but it is very soft in real life.
 I kept the page pretty simple since it is a smaller scale and the background paper already has a lot going on. I tore a piece of lavender cardstock to make a mat for my photo. And if you'll notice, I used an edge distresser on my picture to give it a shabby chic look.
 I cut a single flower from the ephemera sheet and I applied several layers of clear embossing powder on top, to make it look more like enamel. You could do this with Glossy Accents, or something similar, but I didn't want to wait for it to dry, so repeated heat embossing was what I chose to do. I popped it off of my page with foam squares. I also added some sequins from the brand new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. I attached them with On Point Glue. Lastly, I added a simple sentiment from Laurel Burch and Stampendous, which worked really well with the rest of the page. I stamped it in Stormy Sky Distress Oxide, which is a wonderful muted blue.
I love this picture of my daughter when she was much smaller. My peony flowers were the size of her head! The Ever Dream paper collection lends itself to simple, yet elegant scrapbook pages and cards. I am really enjoying working with it. Head on over to White Rose Crafts LLC to see what else you can get from Altair Art. And, be sure to use my code Alison 15 to save 15% on your order! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
