Home, Sunshine & Happiness Layout with Bloom Street

Hello friends 🥰

I’m sharing my newest Design Team project for Paige Taylor Evans today and while we’ve been hunkered down for more than a month, spring has snuck in.

I wanted my layout to reflect that!

So, I have combined three of Paige’s cut files and the spring hues of beautiful Bloom Street to tell the story.

The Birdhouse cut file is from Paige’s 19 Days of Spring Collection and I’ve combined it with the Home With Stitching Holes cut file. There’s Daddy bird, he’s helping to build a nest for his family.

The birdhouse and all the letters are paper backed with product strips  I’ve been saving from other Bloom Street projects. I taped them onto a scrap of white cardstock to make a collage sheet that was 12” by 6” then cut that into rectangles to fit behind the cut file letters.

Sometimes I think crafting today is a combination of everything we’ve learned before. Do you remember ‘paper tole’ ? A popular craft from the 80’s? I used a similar technique to put together the birdhouse. I cut out three birdhouses to be able to cut them apart, paper the sections and layer all the parts together to create dimension. 

The background was stencilled with Distress Oxide Inks. I wanted it to look like bokeh on a sunny day. I just made a quick stencil in Silhouette Studio by cutting out various sizes of circles on a piece of scrap cardstock.

Finally, the whole design was matted onto a sheet of Paper 22 to create a colourful boarder all around.

Stay well dears and see you soon ❤️

    1. Hello hello Lavinia ! Thanks so much dear. 🥰 I really loved this cut file too. I actually took a paper tole class once. Unfortunately, the images that were available were a bit dawdy and I only did one. Kind of like my lampshade making class, stain glass class and tole painting class, LOL. I always think I’m going to start this cottage industry from home but actually I just like to try everything 😃Oh and I took a bent willow class too and made a nice basket but decided those chairs are worth every penny they charge for them, ha! That course had my hands looking like I battled an alligator 😂

      Hey! BTW, you might not had seen my followup message about your email to get your address. I had replied on my last post that I never got your email. I can’t imagine why but what if I emailed you and you could just reply. Would you mind replying that here and then I’ll erase the comment? Cheers dear xK

  2. Hello sweet Pauline ! How fabulous to arrive to your generous note, thank you so much. It’s a long weekend here and usually everyone flocks to the garden centres to buy up mountains of plants for the yard. I plan to wait for a weekday, hoping to avoid the long line ups as we’re still social distancing.
    Summer is my favourite time of year for all the colour and sunshine. We don’t get the heat but a nice 22C – 26C is perfect for me.
    Winter has it merits, generally keeping us inside with projects that got forgotten over summer. Being that I’ve had lots of time for those things, I’m thinking winter will be pretty different this year too. Are you painting, doodling, knitting or all of the above at once, LOL Have a beautiful day Pauline, much love to you xoK

  3. Very springlike colourings there Kelly, it’s so pretty! And I’m glad to hear the snow has gone and spring has arrived. We are quivering on the cusp of winter after a benign autumnal period. Its all oranges and browns and greyish blues here 🙂
