Triple Play Blog Hop: Week 3-Beauty Bloom

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for the Triple Play Blog Hop! This week, we are all using a flower die called Beauty Bloom. I love this die (it's by Brenda Pinnick) because it has four shapes on the one die.


Here is my project...


I created this layout of my oldest daughter. Sadly, she is growing up way too fast and is already 17 years old. I took this photo of her last summer and it's one of my favorites. I used 12x12 chipboard as my background (for durability, since this layout will go in our booth for conventions.)

I then stamped the background with chalk ink for a soft look. Here you can see the background better. And the fun ribbon! ;)


I used my Big Shot Pro to cut the flowers and added them to the layout after inking and stamping them. I love the little dots from the backgrounds2build stamp set.
One of my favorite things about stamps is the ability to create my own patterned paper. :)



Products Used:
Sizzix Beauty Bloom Die by Brenda Pinnick
The Stamps of Life Stamps (of course!) backgrounds2build, words4family, quick2border
Prismatics Cardstock from DiscountCardstock.com
Ribbon, ink

What a lovely layout to showcase a beautiful photo! I love the elegance and softness of this. Your stamps really shine, subtley. (if that makes sense)
