Take DELIGHT with the Blossom Collection

I love the new paper Blossom Collection from Close To My Heart. The colors are cheery and the accents are lovely. Whether you are a scrapbooker, card-maker or other crafter, you will find much to love about Blossom.

This layout came together quickly using stickers from the Blossom Complements. These pages will be perfect for spring or summer memories.

If you are like me, stickers tend to feel flat. To add dimension, I usually pop some up on foam tape. For larger stickers, it helps to put a little powder on the back to remove the stick. The papers needed a little more interest, so I roughed the photo mats up a bit with the edge distresser.

Blossom Layout Detail 3

As you can see from these close ups, I also added a few of the Blossom metal accessories and Ocean Sequins. I love how all these pieces coordinate perfectly.

Blossom Layout Detail 1

I love how "wrapping" my pages with twine looks, but sometimes it is hard to get it to stay in place. My solution is Washi tape -- it is light weight and easy to work with. It is strong enough to hold the twine in place, but also offers some forgiveness if you have to move it to get the ends exactly where you want them.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and are inspired to try something new. Remember when you place an order of $25 or more you qualify for my hostess club and are invited to come to my house to put it together the following month. For more information, visit the Events and Hostess Club pages.

Have a wonderful Spring Day,
