Hello friends and welcome! Today, I’m here to share with you a layout I made using the new Build-a-flower: Flourishing Zinnia stamp & die set from Altenew.
I decided to create a scrapbook layout using the stamps and die. One of the great things about making your own embellishments is that you can choose the colors you want to make them. My favorite color is blue & mint, so I thought why not! I made 3 blue flowers and mint colored leaves, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
I started out by stamping the flowers and leaves using the guide on the back of the stamp set. I used the Altenew Northern Lights Mini ink cube set for the leaves, and for the flowers, I ended up using Distress inks. Then, I used the matching dies to cut out the images.
Next I trimmed my photos, and backed them to a piece of pattern paper from the Altenew Reflection scrapbook collection. Since I used black & white photos, I could essentially make the layout whatever color I decided to. I like the monochromatic look with just a little pop of color. I chose a black and white striped paper from the same Reflection collection as my background. I added a little mixed media on it, although most of it is covered by my photo and embellishments. I added my flowers and some more bits and pieces from the Reflection scrapbook collection to embellish my layout. My title is 38, and the “you are simply awesome” sentiment is from the Flourishing Zinnia stamp set.
Here’s a closeup of the journaling. I just found some funny “adulthood” quotes on Pinterest, and used them as my journaling to joke about me turning 38. Ha!
I love this cute stamp and die set! The Build-A-Flower: Zinnia set includes a stamp set and a coordinating die set. Here is the layering guide:
