Unforgettable Tulips Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring a number of Quietfire Design dies.

I started out gazing at Rosebud Wreath and Elements cutting die set and thinking to myself, it would be very cool to use the small wreath die as a photo frame.  Then, I started thinking about the best kind of photographs to use and the fact that the rosebuds remind me of tulips, and well, one thing led to another.....

This is such a cool die set - you can use some or all of the elements to create cards or to accent scrapbook pages.  It's very versatile.  The wreath fits perfectly on a 4x6 photo.

I cut a separate wreath out of green cardstock to frame the die cut photo, but look how pretty the photo wreath is.  I'm saving it for a future card.

I used Unforgettable as a page title and added a couple of flourished butterflies.  It's a very simple layout but I think the die cut photos add a unique element to the page.  And if you ever get a chance to go to the tulip festival in the Skagit Valley in upper Washington State, it's simply beautiful.  Thanks for stopping by, Connie

Beautiful! What a creative way to showcase such a fun time. I especially like your idea to use “photo wreaths,” cut from the photo. I have so many old photos that are stored digitally, but I can’t bear to throw away the original prints. I think it is a flashback to a horrible photo studio employee who said to me THIRTY YEARS AGO (!) that I if I didn’t purchase the entire package of my newborn daughter’s photos, they would “just end up at the bottom of a trash can.” Jerk. (No, I didn’t buy them — they were awful — but I still feel bad enough to remember that.)

Anyway, my point is that if I could use those old photos to create new memories, it would be a win! Think of little red mittens cut out of a photo of her first Christmas dress! Or “thanks” die cut out of a stack of presents from a birthday party. Oh, you have me on a roll now!

Many, many thanks for the inspiration!
