Bloomin' Smile!
A smile is worth a thousand words. I couldn't agree more. I created this layout for my monthly Stamp N' Scrap Class. You can find details about my upcoming class by CLICKING HERE.  I teach the class twice a week so if you can't attend on one day there's another option.  Don't let the list of supplies scare you off. It's a "punch happy" page!

Layout Tips:
  1. The large, white cardstock square on the left hand size was cut 8 1/2" 8 1/2".
  2. I stamped three flowers in solid cardstock to coordinate with the stamped images. They are separated by a Dimensional to create a 3D look.  
  3. The Lucky Limeade (A RETIRING COLOR!) Bakers Twine is used as a stem. I cut 5" pieces for each flower, used my Paper Piercing Tool to make a hole and taped the raw end to the back side of the white layer.  
  4. The individual squares on the right hand side are each 3"x3".
  5. I made the leaves by using the small oval punch, folding it in half and trimming it down to make it smaller. Each leaf is a little different...just like on real flowers!
