Birthday Joy with Neva!

Neva here to share with you the bright colors of one of our newest collections, Secret Garden. 

The floral design was perfect for my birthday layout, I really like the true reds of the Secret Garden designs. Several of my gifts featured red and a few other colors in the collection so it was a natural choice!

  • The base is 100 with a mat of 102 which is the floral pattern on a Navy base. So pretty! 
  • The photos are matted on a coordinating solid cardstock to allow a bit of color separation. 
  • The bottom edge is 103 a solid red on one side that is punched to create an interesting border. 
  • My focal photo is matted in 103. 
  • Outside corners are rounded with a corner rounder.
  • All of the lighter colored pieces are chalked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Lipstick.

This close-up shows the details of the left-side of the layout.
  • A few of the flowers are fussy cut from the remaining sections of 102 and adhered with foam adhesive for accents. 
  • Chipboard die cuts from the Earth Wind Fire are a perfect finishing touch along with some coordinating fiber. 
  • The title is die cut from the coordinating cardstock. 

The right side close-up shows a few more fussy cut flowers and Chipboard die cuts. It is always fun to find additional embellishments from other collections that match and fit the theme of a layout!
