Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe collectionI fell in love with Floral Shoppe the moment I saw it in the previews for the winter trade shows this year. Who can resist all of these amazing floral prints? And they are paired with such beautiful tone on tone “b” sides! My two favorite things in one collection!

As soon as I saw these old pictures of my daughter while digging through an old box of prints looking for inspiration, I knew they had to go with this collection. The sweet pink and green, and the floral skirt are just perfect matches for Floral Shoppe!

Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe layout

Supplies Needed:

The theme I started with for this layout design was kind of “pink lemonade”. I love how the yellow paper looks on this pink floral. As the design evolved, the yellow became a bit less dominant and it because more about the pink and green.

I should have finished this layout by stitching the length of the green strip with some dark red thread as an extra detail. But it was well after midnight and I didn’t want to wake my daughter in the next room with the sewing machine! I’ll just add this layout being perfect to the list of things I’ve given up for motherhood (like eating uninterrupted).

The journal card with the bird is actually a small part of a much larger card. Just because an embellishment comes a certain way doesn’t mean you can’t adjust it to your needs!

Sometimes, when layering patterned paper, it can melt together and you don’t get visual separation. To help separate these patterns from each, I inked the edges of each layer with a color that is slightly darker than the paper’s pattern. This provides a faux “drop shadow” that provides depth and visual separation between the layers.

  • I was not going to buy Floral Shoppe, because, well, I’ve just bought too much lately. But the more I see the layouts and the actual paper being used, I’m not sure how I can pass it up!! It’s perfect for Mother’s day, too. Love your lay out its gorgeous!!

  • This has to be one of the most beautiful paper collections of all time! I so love this collection, but then again, what’s not to love. 🙂 I want to create a piece of art with this collection but need to think about it a bit more. Not sure if I want to do it on canvas or do some decoupage with it on something.

  • The flower patterns in this collection are so rich and full of color. I only wish my own flower garden looked like this but I’ll settle for some Graphic 45! Your layout is adorable, and so is our daughter.

  • If you had created the paper yourself, it couldn’t have been anymore perfect for these sweet pictures of your daughter. Graphic 45 never disappoints! This collection certainly made a lovely layout – with or without stitching =) (I am wondering if everyone else went back to look at your LO to picture it with the stitching? And, we would have never thought of it without you mentioning it! )

  • Great layout. Looks like she is wearing the paper on her skirt. I love this collection.

  • Love the layout!! Being a gardener, I would love to win this collection. Fingers crossed.
