Kristine lives on the East Coast in New Brunswick, Canada. She's been married for 15 years and has 2 cats named Archie and Willie who keep her busy removing cat hair from her glue dots! She works full time as a customer sales and service agent for an airline company and loves to spend her spare time being creative. She also loves anything with chocolate, a good cup of coffee, as well as city skylines, and sunsets.
Kristine has been an avid scrapbooker since 2006 and completely addicted to pop dots, diecuts and of course pattern paper. She is the founder of a scrapbook sketch site called Creative Scrappers, and currently a design team member for Jillibean Soup and Simple Stories. She is thrilled to be our guest designer this month and looking forward to providing you with some inspiration to get creative.
Thanks so much Kristine for joining us today! Take it away...
Bloom Pallet by Kristine Davidson
I decided to create a small display with the Mini 4x4 Pallet. The mini I saw them I was in Love! They are perfect for any “little “project such as a teacher’s gift, Christmas, home décor and even more.
I first painted the wood pallet a nice dark brown and sanded off the edges.
My base was the Kraft Mason Jar Tag that you can see underneath all the flowers. I created each flower with the soon to be released Steel Dies – Flowers. I layered them with pop dots and curled the edges a bit for more dimension.
Once I place my flowers in a cluster I added Felt Blossoms, but they were too large so instead I trimmed around them and kept a small rosette size to be placed in those empty spaces. Adding cut out leaves and a few wood tokens, Love Note Charm, and even an Ornate Button at the top finished my display.
At the end I added 2 Vintage Pearl Trinket Pins and my title which is Bloom that is from a steel die in the – Flowers package.
Overall I am very pleased with the outcome; it’s really cute in person. This little display has lots of texture which we all love.
