GARDEN EXPLORATION


For today’s post I did a Garden Layout using some of my favourite photos of my daughter Cheyenne when she was a baby. I spread the layout over 2 pages so that it did not look all crammed into one page. She was a real ‘outside’ girl and just loved the garden and all the messy dirt that went with it. A short time in the garden would solve any tears or grumpy days she had.




For this layout I have used the following dies & products:-
QUICKUTZ CHEMISTRY ALPHABET 4x8-CHEMISTR-MU
QUICKUTZ LIMITED EDITION EXOTIC ISLAND ALPHABET
TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS INKS


QUICKUTZ BUTTERFLY REV-0088. I used vellum as the solid back piece of the butterfly to give it a smooth transparent look.
KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES
KAISERCRAFT PAPER FLOWERS


QUICKUTZ TREE BORDER CC-BDR-021
QUICKUTZ PINWHEEL QC-0010-S to make the leaves for the backs of the flowers on the trees and kept them in place with some silver brads. The flowers I used are the smallest size of the Kaisercraft flowers.


COTTAGECUTZ WHEELBARROW OF FLOWERS SC-CC4X4-030
QUICKUTZ CLOUDS BORDER CC-BDR-032


COTTAGECUTZ WATER FOUNTAIN SC-CC-4X4-029
QUICKUTZ SNAIL KS-0103
SIZZIX ORIGINALS FENCE

So, cute! So, creative! Always impressed with your work. Every item you make teaches me a new way to use something. Who would have thought to use the pinwheel die for trees?
