I had fun pairing this pretty K&Company paper with the Extras in our new Mother's Day Cards SVG Kit to create a pretty page for my scrapbook!  The cheerful yet elegant colors and ladylike patterns were perfect.  I used the Vines Square element in the background, backed by a blacked-out version of itself in a complementary pattern.  Why not go all-out girly for a holiday celebrating Mom?  I used several pretty 3D flowers from the same SVG Kit with a recent free SVG (photo frame) and it came out great!  I tell ya, just using coordinated paper makes it hard to screw up!

Design Tips

  • The paper is Classic K Charlotte (625204) and the solid-colored cardstock is Bazzill Bling, which has a slight sheen to it, and it cut great.  I picked this up by the sheet at my local Michaels.
  • I inked the edges of every single piece in brown.  This takes a few extra minutes, and it can be tempting to skip this step, but it’s worth doing.  As I always say, it really ties everything together and adds that hip factor.
  • As you can see, I popped out a lot of the elements (using 3D Zots), such as the entire border/background, the leaves, the framed photo, the tag and the flowers.  This makes it extra-special!
  • The stitched pink ribbon on the tag is from a spool from Michaels.  I secured the two bits of ribbon with small pop dots to keep them in place.

Thanks for checking out my project - I hope you like it and that it brings you some inspiration.  Happy crafting!  ~Mary  :)

    Love this, and love the dimensions and design tips you gave. I’m just about ready to try something like this! I’ve just been cutting out single items so far. But I got my Cricut out of the box and have turned it on!!!!

    Scrapbooking is my favorite passtime. I really like digital scrapbooking but I also enjoy spending time with others working on a regular scrapbook.

    This is a beautiful page. What could be more feminine. It makes me think I can feel the loving relationship of Mother and Daughter. I totally love everything about it.
