Raquel's Blog: A Blessed Life
Hello everyone, I am excited to be back again to share another couple of layouts I have created with gorgeous D-lish Scraps products.
The first layout I am sharing today I created for the monthly Show us Your Stuff challenge. The challenge was to use either the word excite, excited, excitement or exciting on your layout.
I decided I wanted to document the big moment of my little girl nearly rolling. I was so excited about this, that every time she would turn to her side I was waiting for that moment when the 'big roll' would actually happen.
Layout title: So close to rolling
I sprayed a scallop canvas cut with Colorshine mist, love the glitz-y effect it has. You can also see close up detail of the White CM Ruler washi tape and seam binding bow (one of my new fave things to do).

This large flower with the resin flower cluster in the middle is actually a trellis rose which is normally quite large and bulky, keep scrolling down to see a brief picture tutorial on how I adapted the rose to suit this page.
I love the new butterfly sequins in the store. I found it easy to attach with my trusty long arm stapler.

TUTORIAL - Creating your own resin centered rose.
Take your Trellis Rose
Grasp the center bud.
Remove the center bud, press down the connecting flower wire so it is not sticking up.
Glue the resin flower cluster in the centre.
I decided to finish the flower by hanging a Charms - Feather to the bottom. To do this I threaded it onto the flowers wire.
Well I hope you have enjoyed the layouts I created this month and the mini tutorial on adapting the trellis rose :)
Before we know it another month will be over and I will be sharing again.
Take care, xxx
