Design Team Member Amy submitted this layout for the August Flower Challenge. She said, "i have to admit i was a little stumped. I don't get many opportunities to use flowers on many of my scrapbooking projects. I am the oldest of three brothers and i have a son of my own, so flowers don't show up too often on my pages. So instead of doing a layout or card, i made myself some flowers for my scrap space!
I used October Afternoon's Thrift Shop line to make my flowers using my Cricut machine (accent's essentials cartridge). After i cut my flowers into different sizes, I embellished them with brads, gems, stickles, inks and buttons. Each flower is stapled to a pipe cleaner and then shoved into floral foam.
The "vase" is just an old soup can that i removed the label and recovered with scrapbook paper. It felt a little plain to me at first so i added a quote by Cathy Allen.
Now it's your turn to submit a flower challenge. See all the details in August Challenge below.
