Bridal Shower & a RAK

I'm making up for lost time, aren't I? I have been on a scrapbooking roll this week. I hope the inspiration just keeps coming!

I have had these pictures on my desk for a while now, so I'm glad to have them done - and it was worth the wait. I love how it turned out.

Used my new DCWV Eco stack again. I cut the scallops with my cricut/sure cuts a lot. I just made several circles and welded them together. If you want them in a line, weld them to a long rectangle. If you want them in a circle, weld them to a circle ;)

I dusted off my eyelets to add a lime green accent and decided to pull it into the title too. I think it matches nicely and breaks out the blue.

I made the lollipop flower with some of the scraps to add balance to the larger circle.


I kept it simple for the second page, bringing in the scallops and adding a bit of journaling. Another lollipop flower in the center brings the pics together.


And a together shot :)


I am enjoying making these lollipop flowers! They are the perfect handmade embellishment and a way to use up scraps, too. Leave a comment on this post and I will choose a random winner next week for a set of 3 flowers (your choice of color scheme/theme!).

Layout Suzanne. Thanks for the tutorial on how you made the scallops. I have been playing with the trial version of Design Studio a bit this week. I am getting close to installing it and actually using it. You may have just convinced me. I have been obsessing over the scallops lately. I love the green accents on the layout. It brings everything together, as do the flowers. Trying them is on my to-do list too. The pages are wonderful. Your book is going to be awesome.
