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!

  1. What a stunning, colourful layout you’ve created with using both of these floral dies. The flowers look so real using those dies and papers,looks like this may have to be a January investment to go with my Altenew stamp sets I own. I’m currently working on a few flowers so thank you for the idea.


  2. Very nice. I like how you kept the colors of the flowers more muted so the deeper colors in the photo would draw the eye in! Thank you.


  3. Gorgeous layout! I love the use of all those beautiful flower dies! Peony dream is definitely my favorite from this release but the whole release is great as usual! Thank you for the inspiration!


  4. I love how you arranged the layered flowers on your page. This is the prettiest page I have seen and those flowers are making me swoon.
