Time Spent Together | Jamie Striplin

Hello crafty friends! I’m up on the blog today to share a new layout I made using the adorable Spring Roses Cut n Stitch cut file. I absolutely adore stitching on layouts so I was thrilled to find this sweet floral cut file with the stitched leaves.

These sweet florals made me think of Mother’s Day and I was so happy to have these photos of me with my mom and daughter last year. I have been working on trying to be better about pulling out my phone to snap pictures with friends and family. I so often forget or just don’t feel like it, but these moments are fleeting and so precious. I’m always so thankful to look back and have them.

I first cut out the flowers in a thicker white card stock. I wanted to watercolor the flowers with some shimmery powdered paint. I then cut the same size cut file out of patterned paper to add some visual interest. the water colored flowers fit in the negative space perfectly and then I backed it with some lighter pink card stock. Having the stitching holes for the leaves already cut, made stitching the leaves a breeze. I brought it downstairs and sewed while watching TV with my husband!

Thanks so much for looking! Make sure you check out all the beautiful floral cut files in the shop! All the heart eyes!!

Xo, Jamie
