Florence Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Close To My Heart Florence Australasian Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from  Shaunna Richards' Passionate About Pages, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Florence is a stunning collection created by Close To My Heart that is featured in the 2016 Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book and is only available until the end of August 2016.  The Florence range includes the Florence Paper PacketFlorence Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking KitFlorence Complements and Florence Sequins which work on their own, or together, to create stunning colour-coordinated page layouts, cards and off-the page projects quickly and easily.

I love the Florence Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kit- it contains enough products to create at least 3 traditional double-page layouts, 1 double-page layout featuring our gorgeous PML cut-apart cards and 8 optional cards featuring the spectacular  A Bunch of Love stamp set and coordinating Thin Cuts (both of which are available separately). 

My project today, was created after I had followed the instructions for creating all of the adorable layouts and cards! I decided to use some of the leftovers to create this quick, simple photo-ready, double-page layout using up some of the B&T Papers, Zip Strips, PML cut-apart cards, Florence Complements and Florence Sequins. 

I just love using up leftovers, don't you?  I always challenge myself to use up every scrap of paper and embellishment from the WYW Kits, and this page layout helped me to achieve this. Well, almost!

Here you can see how I have used up some of the leftover Florence Complements and Sequins to create clusters of embellishments to decorate my layout.

Clustering embellishments together in groups, rather than spreading them out, creates a more cohesive look and adds balance to your layouts. 

Thank you for visiting my Blog to check out my page layout featuring the gorgeous products from the Florence Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kit. I would love it if you would leave a comment below before you hop to the next stop on our Florence Australasian Blog Hop, Doris Taylor's Creative Inspirations to see what delightful projects Doris has to share with us today.

Remember, you can purchase any of the gorgeous Florence products from your CTMH Independent Consultant but they are only around until 31 August, so get in quick before they disappear!

Until next time!

Warmest crafting wishes,
Denise :)
