"Strawberry Fields" Layout for Webster's Pages!

Good morning everyone! Believe it or not, I'm up with a new post today. Things are winding down for me here after 6 long months of canning after continual foraging and harvesting. It's getting colder and winter could arrive at any's always a mad dash to get everything settled before we find ourselves under snow.

But I have been creating, I have! :)

I had the pleasure of using a gorgeous collection from Webster's Pages which I hadn't yet had the chance. It was released just a little while back and is called "Strawberry Fields". It is just stunning! If you love it too, you can find it {HERE}.

"Do You Suppose She's a Wildflower?"

I love the cheerful colors of this collection and the fabulous country summertime feel of the patterns. I thought they paired nicely with this photo of my daughter feeding the chickens. 

I added a bit of fussy cutting, as well as some strips of the "Woodgrains Vellum" from the collection beneath my cluster here (the yellow patterned piece), as well as the strip directly above my photo. I've also used quite a few gorgeous Prima flowers, many new releases.

The various ATC cards available for cutting out with this collection make for great titles too! I love it when a collection allows me that luxury, rather than having to dig into my letter sticker stash to create my own. And I especially love when I can then use a title that I may not have thought of, yet fits so well, as in this case :)

NEW Webster's Pages "Nest" Collection!

Good morning and welcome to...October?! For real? 

Yes, crazy. But let's start off the month right with a project with a brand NEW collection from Webster's Pages called "Nest". This collection is awesome...and being a family-oriented mama, all the little family-themed items in this range are right up my alley. So many cute motifs to cut out, cards, titles, new stickers, etc- much to love here. And COLOR...tons of color!

Here is my very first project using this gorgeous new line:

"With You I am at Home"
The inspiration for this canvas came from the 4x6 "Family" card cut out. I loved the different shades of eggs all sitting in a row :). And I just went from there. 

I applied some "Egg Blue" chalkboard paint from Prima with a spatula to the background of my canvas. Then misted with "Sunshine" & "Worn Leather" Color Bloom sprays before I went to work adding my various "Nest" cutouts and stickers.

I loved creating dimension by layering these little fussy cut frames and heart, popping them up with foam adhesive. I also used one of the vellum envelopes from the Nest "Memory Pockets & Labels Kit" to pull the whole cluster together. 

Below my layered hearts I added a Blue Fern Studios "Party Flags" chipboard banner piece. I found that if you use an old paint brush (one that has stiffened bristles) and apply gesso vertically, you get a wood grain effect which I though worked great for this project!
