I knew as soon as I used the Slice die cut machine from Making Memories that I had to use it for an inspiration. Simply because that is exactly what it did - it inspired me. I used it for the first time for a "design off" project organized by Good Things Utah and Channel 4. We were given ladder type bookshelves to decorate by adding paint, embellishments, and photo inspiration. You can see an example of our shelf - a little girls dream - in the first picture. The second picture shows the darling layered flowers that were the focus of this project and also the inspiration of my "Grateful" page.
I love the airy, retro, feel to these unique flowers which are so easy to make with the Slice and Making Memories Paperie papers in Greenhouse and Mocha. I used flower shapes from the Noteworthy and Basics 2 design cards. Vary sizes between 3" and 2" as well as patterns, layer, and curl flower edges with a pencil. Finish off with a brad or button and that is all the embellishment you'll need. Since there were so many patterns going on in the paper flowers, I decided to use a plain background allowing the focus to be the picture and flowers.
So, this season, along with your slice of pumpkin pie - you might want to look into a different kind of a Slice... I know I will.
