This is a cute and easy 2 page layout kit. The hardest part were the banner tips, but I watched the 2nd part of the new Season 5 Downton Abbey while creating this so it made it more fun!
I can see exactly WHY mom chose this kit, it has roses and flowers on the papers! I get the feeling this was meant for my daughter Katie- so that is who's photos I will add later on.
And here are the easy 2 pages I created from that layout idea using our new Painted Blossoms Designer Paper and Painted Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set. Talk about wonderful!! These are a must have. I will have to order the coordinating embossing folder to go with it I must have missed it when I placed my order.

I wanted to keep it simple so the right floral page is the full 12x12 sheet from the paper pack with 2 photo layers added. I plan to add elements after photos are added. On the left page, I included a 3x3 envelope with a pink 3x3 card for journaling. And I rounded the corners of the photo layers to soften the look of the pages. Again, I left off the elemements until I add the photos. The left page is the light blue varigated paper from the pack. I stamped using Versamark Ink, the flower design from the stamp set. It's hard to see here, but it's there. I also used the lines from the kit for journaling lines also stamped in Versamark.
After adding my photos later on, I will create a title for the page or some words cut out with my cricut or silhouette to bring it all together. I ALWAYS use Stampin Up Solid Cardstock in my projects, I have yet to find anything of better quality.
Using this Painted Blooms Designer Paper is fast and fun for layouts. I am going to buy 2 more of the packs becuase the paper reminds me so much of my Grandmother Cochran and my Mom and myself that I want to use it to create a few 3 generations pages and then a journal book for me.!
I hope you like my basic ideas, feel free to copy them. I would love to see what you do!
I have 5 wedding cards to create by Friday night- so I better get to it!
Thanks for stopping by, I know how busy you are!
