Ladies Who Lunch | Jamie Striplin

Hello crafty friends! I started the layout not quite sure what photos I wanted to use. I fell in love with the Spring Floral Background cut file and knew I definitely wanted to use it! Maybe it’s because Spring is finally in the air in the Pacific Northwest where I live! I cut the file out on my silhouette and started backing with some pretty floral/springy papers.

I decided to use buttons for the flower centers and sewed each one on. Once I was done, The floral background really had a spring homespun patchwork quilt feel to it and I loved this! This inspired me to use a photo of me with my crafty girls! We are like a patchwork quilt of awesomeness – all so different, but we go together so well! I chose to make the photo black and white so it wouldn’t compete with all the colors in the background and then used a little white gesso on the background patterned paper just to mute it a little bit.

Thank you so much for looking! Make sure to stop by the shop to check out all the gorgeous spring floral cut files!

Xo, Jamie
