For my layout today, I started with a white cardstock base. I used the Sketched Lines Stencil and the new Altenew Embossing Paste diagonally down the center of the layout. I used a blue mist from my stash to add a little bit of color to the background to help the stencil lines pop. I waited for the embossing paste to be almost completely dry and then took a napkin to dab the color off the embossing paste. I love how this turned out!! It gave the embossing paste a bit more texture.

Now let me give you my honest opinion of the Altenew Embossing Paste…I’m a bit of a snob when it come to embossing/texture pastes. I like them to be lightweight and really opaque! I’m so happy with how this embossing paste worked! I will definitely be reaching for it again & again!!

I cut multiple rolled flowers from an older Cricut cartridge. I cut the flowers in different sizes on numerous patterned papers from the Altenew 6×6 Verdant Walk Paper Pack. I rolled the flowers and adhered them to their bases using hot glue, and then I adhered them to the layout following the same angle as the embossing paste.

After I had the flowers adhered, I put the Teal Shadow Washi Tape & the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape on a scrap piece of white cardstock and fussy cut out the florals and leaf images. I then adhered those fussy cut images around the outside edges of the flowers.

After the washi tape flowers and leaves were added to the layout, I added my title using Black Alphas from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. I added my photos to the upper right hand side of the layout and finished the layout with a few coral splatters.

  1. Holy amazing florals you’ve got there! I’m sure this took a lot of time to put together but the end result looks amazing!

  2. Lovely design Kelly! All these amazing layers of dimension make that pictures pop out of the page. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Sweet layout. I like the way the embossing paste adds some subtle texture behind those beautiful flowers and how you used the washi tape to frame them. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I have never seen a scrapbook layout as beautiful as this one. It deserves to be framed in a shadow box and put on display in your home. I love the look you achieved with the embossing paste and how you intermingled washi tape with your cricut flowers. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. So many flowers! This is beautiful. I love the way the background turned out so subtle and the washi tape florals added a lot of texture too. Gorgeous!

  6. All I can say is WOW!! That waterfall of flowers is absolutely stunning!! You really created a beautiful work of art, Kelly! Thank you for sharing your awesome creation with all of us!!
