The layout I’m sharing today features the Peony Dream 3D Die set.


I can’t say enough how gorgeous this set is. The realistic look you can achieve with all the layering pieces is just amazing. I decided to use a mix of patterned papers from both Reflection and Our Family Scrapbook Collections. It worked like magic! The shading and watercolor effect of the papers shine through the different sections of flowers and leaves. After assembling the first peony, it was hard to stop! So many possibilities and different looks by just changing the colors of the papers.

Here I created a few floral clusters around the photo.

For the peonies, I layered the two different images that come in the set to achieve a more natural look. For the leaves, in addition to the dies included in the set, I used the ones from the other stand-alone die that has been released today: Rose Flurries 3D Die set. I love the combination of the two.

I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum, as the flowers were already taking up most of the page. I just added a few arrows from the Point it out stamp set and simple sentiments from the Beautiful Quotes set. For the title, I combined the alpha chipboard stickers from the Our Family Collection with a stamped banner that features the “Beautiful” sentiment from the Amazing you stamp set.

I finished the layout with wood veneer leaves and buttons.

This release is truly amazing, friends! Don’t forget to comment along for a chance to win awesome prizes. Your next stop is Nina-Marie’s blog.


Thank you for stopping by!
