Hi Everyone! We have a new Issue up at Paper Issues today, "Mum's the Word." Ideas for the issue are Mother's Day, what you call your mother, flowers, gardening, spring, put the focus on a big word or journaling, are you good at keeping secrets/my lips are sealed, One Little Word projects, use lips as an embellishment, someone who is like a mother to you, use Doodlebug products... There's a million different ways to look at it!! This issue is being sponsored by Doodlebug Design (obviously one of my FAVORITES!!) I chose to play with some flowers for my project! Take a peek...
Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers. We have about 30 of them in my back yard and every year they blossom in to big gorgeous blooms! Unfortunately right now they look like a bunch of dried sticks! I found a fun 3D Hydrangea file, designed by Jamie Cripps, in the Silhouette Store and went to work! Jamie also designed the vase file.
I used a combination of Doodlebug's new Sprinkles Vellum and Tiny Prints for the individual blossoms. The leaves were created from some Kraft in Color paper (Limeade Arrow/Dot) and the stems are wrapped with some Doodlebug Limeade Swiss Dot Washi Tape.
The vase was created from some Kraft in Color (Swimming Pool Dot/Woodgrain) paper with some lace tape from my stash and some Doodlebug Sequins! Now I don't have to wait another 3 months to look at Hydrangea blossoms!
We'd love for you to play along with us! Link up your Mum's the Word projects (here) and you could win this fun prize pack from Doodlebug Designs!
