UStamp Blog Tour–Blooming Canvas



Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Katie Resop's Family Fotos layout.  What a great way to showcase pictures of her beautiful family!   Katie is a FABULOUS Designer and always shares something special for UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! events!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.

 Hand-crafted flowers are all the rage in the scrapbooking world, but let's face it….they aren't very practical for placing in an actual scrapbook.  I know in my scrapbooks, these would end up being a flattened mess.  If I'm going to make something this pretty, I want to show it off!

UStampCanvas

I started with a 12" x 12" Canvas and added simple paper strips to create an interesting background.  These papers are from the new Floral District Designer Series Paper pack that will be available June 1st.

Flowercloseup

I created the flowers with more Designer Series Paper and the blossom punch.  I've got easy to follow directions in my tutorial.  Once you make one, you'll definitely be addicted.  They are so simple to make!

The title was created with the Big Shot and Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Dies.  This set of dies will be retiring at the end of this month.

    Beautiful flowers, and love the layout.

    Melissa I do love your layout, but once it goes in the book it does get flattened right? I think this would be a great showcase layout for a shadow box, but either way it is beautiful.

    Love this layout, but especially the flowers, hope I can do them justice when I get to experimenting with this idea. Thank you for sharing.
