Life is Wonderful SOTM S1507 layout with Blossom Paper

I whipped up this layout today because I was inspired when I looked at some artwork in our Seasonal Expressions 2 (The Idea book with the strawberries on the front).
I am in LOVE with this Stamp Set!

 Here is the inspiration...

The cutting guide for this layout is in Make It From Your Heart Vol 2, Pattern 14. I used Blossom B&T duos instead of the background stamp with Pear, Hollyhock and Black Cardstock.

The first thing I did was stamp the decorative frame 7 times on White Daisy Cardstock in Black Exclusive Ink. Then I stamped Life is inside one of the frames, Wonderful in Cranberry Ink and Always Remember in Black Ink on Pear Cardstock. I cut out all the frames (they are not perfectly square) and rounded the corners then fussy cut around the Wonderful. I cut the Pear piece with Always Remember into a flag and gave it a White Daisy mount. I adhered it onto my Black page using 3D Foam Tape. I also used foam tape to stick the word Wonderful onto the Life is frame. A half inch strip of the Blossom paper is running along the bottom of the page showing the reverse pattern on the back.

The frames can be used for photos or to journal. Finally I added a few Clear Sparkles for some bling!

Life is Wonderful S1507 July 2015 - CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Life is Wonderful S1507 

Hello and welcome aboard our SOTM Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from

then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, that's okay, please join in by following the link at the end of this post which will take you to the next great idea. Don't forget to Pin any of the ideas you love to Pinterest!

Today I would like to share with you this album page which features July 2015 Stamp of the Month S1507 Life is Wonderful available exclusively throughout July for just $5 when you spend $75. Or just pay rrp of $27 for the SOTM if you don't need to order $75 worth this month. We also have a promotion this month where you can get it for FREE so I will add the info at the bottom of this post.

I found the layout I wanted to use for my photos in Make It From Your Heart Vol 1, Pattern 3, right page. Then I chose my papers and embellishments from our Jackson range.

First I used White Daisy Ink to stamp "Life is" and the frame onto Barn Red Cardstock. Then I stamped "Life is" and "Wonderful" onto White Daisy Cardstock using Crystal Blue Exclusive Ink. I fussy cut out the banner with "is" on it and also cut around the word Wonderful. 

I then followed the cutting guide to add the Jackson papers to my layout.  Once my papers and photos were adhered to the page, I stuck the "is" banner down with Glue Dots for a little depth and "Wonderful" with 3D Foam Tape for more depth!

 I also stamped the arrow straight onto the page using Barn Red Ink and added some Durables Triangle Studs.
