Hello there! I have three posts for you today - hence, my DDD post launched a bit early to avoid a traffic jam on the blog :)
I just love flowers! I think it's part of my English mom's heritage in me that I'm always wishing I lived with a backyard filled with an English style garden with mazes and trellis' full of flowers :) Any chance to build/craft/create with flowers is always a good day :) And since it's my turn to post on The Scrapping Cottage blog, I thought I'd bring you a slightly different treat! And one day last week I was zipping around on SCS and saw the tutorial on used dryer sheets and fell in love! We - a family of 6 - definitely have mounds of laundry and dryer sheets are a must, so when I saw the tutorial, I was super eager to give it a try. It was soooooo easy!! You can see my step by step pictorial here on the Cottage Cutz blog, and here you can see the final product :) I ended up adding my recycled dryer sheet flower to a collage. This is one of my favorite past-times to create without any general direction - all the pieces in this framed collage are all scraps! But if you truly want to some some collage-type inspiration, please stop in and visit my friend, Julie - oh my... she is an inspiration!
So here is the final result, cut using the stitched flower die (love this die!), run through the Cuttlebug with a shim and dryer sheet. After they are all out, I spritzed them with some Tattered Angels in Trunk Bay (the color :) - let them dry and edged them with some Stickles glitter glue. After that was dry, I just built up the flowers and added one of them to this collage with a verse, scraps of material and buttons and added it to a small frame. Easy and such a lovely result!
