Maggie Holmes Garden Party | Jo Boland
Hello, Jo here. I’m using the lovely Maggie Holmes ‘Garden Party’ for my April projects. I love the Maggie Holmes collections, the vintage style and the soft colours. There’s definitely cross overs from this collection back to previous collections which means it can be mixed easily with leftover stash.
Scrapbook Layout #1 ‘Floral Crown’
For the layout I used three of the papers from the Garden Party collection. A 2″ strip of the pink paper ‘Garden Friends’ has been placed along the bottom of the layout.
I have used both sides of the Taking Notes paper with three journaling cards cut from it. I punched a semi-circle into one to make it look like a pocket card. Another I trimmed down so that it would fit behind it and slid out to reveal some hidden journaling.
I’ve embellished the layout with chipboard pieces, puffy stickers, plus clear and cardstock stickers from the sticker book. The black puffy hearts are from the puffy accent and phrase stickers pack and the title is made from the puffy letters sticker pack.
The blue journaling card on which I’ve stamped the date is cut from the Garden Stroll paper.
Scrapbook Layout #2 Spring Wreath
For my second layout using the Maggie Holmes Garden Party collection. I have used the Wild Flower paper layered on top of piece of Trellis paper (I’ve gutted the central 10″ to use on another project). I cut a wreath (using a cut-file from the Silhouette store) and some brown textured cardstock. I’ve popped up the wreath on foam pads to give it some dimension.
On to the wreath I’ve added flowers, butterflies and hearts from the chipboard sticker pack and a puffy flower sticker.
The journaling card has been cut from the Taking Notes paper and I’ve added a puffy flower sticker to the bottom. I’ve added a phrase banner from the ephemera pack.
With the main paper being rather busy, I added a label from the ephemera pack on to which the title is placed. The letter stickers for the title come from the sticker book. I chose the chipboard phrase ‘look at you grow’ because the spring wreath has living bulbs in it.
Thanks for stopping by. See you later in the month,
