Tutorial – Love Grows Here


I began by trimming a piece of IndigoBlu paper to 12″ x 9″. I distressed and doodled the edges before attaching to a piece of 12 x 12 patterned paper.  Next I cut a large honeycomb pattern out on my Silhouette machine in cream cardstock. I cut around some of the butterflies in the IndigoBlu paper so I could slide my honeycomb grid under them and glue them into place.

Next I added some ribbon to the bottom of the page then added my photograph on top. I added in some journaling cards and small tittles, made from the 6 x 6 paper pad, around the photograph.

Next I used one of the hexagons from the die cut and traced around it on patterned paper. I then added these pieces to the die cut grid, some left flat and some raised with foam pads. I doodled around the hexagons too. I also made 4 bees from the IndigoBlu die from cream cardstock, coloured them and added glossy accents to give them a shine. I randomly added them around the layout.

To finish I added a large glittery title and a few paper flowers

I hope you like this simple but bright scrapbook layout.
