Moments Like This with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today.

I am sharing a layout that uses one of my favorite techniques - cutting the background with a craft knife. Some papers have the most amazing images and I hate covering them up.  The paper I chose for the background of this scrapbook page is from the Earth Wind Fire Collection and has some beautiful stylized flowers.


I added the illusion of dimension by using my craft knife to cut around the images and pulling them on top of other elements, like the photo mat or the sentiment.


I trimmed out some extra flowers from another paper and tucked them behind the photo mat in a couple of places. I also added some sentiments from the cut apart page.


I decorated the flowers with self adhesive pearls in three different colors: cranberry, gun metal, and steel blue. Here are a couple of close ups:
