This month, we are featuring a variety of projects using our Brushed collection. This collection has been brought back from the past and brightened with new colors. If you have come here from Haley Dyer’s Blog you are on the right path! When you are finished taking a look at how I use the Brushed collection on my Garden Puppy layout, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog. This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of artwork created by some very talented consultants.

At this point in my life, I have more photos of the dog than I do of the kids, so I decided to use some of those beautiful Brushed papers and stickers to show how much our little fur baby loves the garden. Some of you may recognize this collection from years ago. It is a “bring back my pack” special♥ that you can take advantage of during the month of June, with a reworked color palette to match our current color collection. I chose to take advantage of those new, bright colors and created a Garden Puppy layout and a process video showing you how I made it.
How cute is she??!! This layout describes our little fur baby perfectly.♥ She loves to lay in the garden, soak up the sun, and, walk through the flowers.
To create that background, I cut strips of paper from the Brushed and Blue Skies collections and laid them onto some White Daisy cardstock along with a piece that I stamped using both of the Brushed stamp sets.
The borders were cut using my Cricut. I created four of each border, off-setting them slightly, using an image from the Artiste collection. If you struggle to create longer borders for your pages, you can learn how here.
Once the background was complete, I added a stitched frame around the photo and added embellishments to my page. Each one of those butterflies were heat embossed onto vellum♥ and layered onto the bokeh pattern paper from the Brushed collection.
The remaining elements on the page came from the sticker sheet. Don’t you just love all those bright colors?
To be honest, I am “new” to using stickers on my scrapbook pages.♥ For many years, I created my own elements and never bothered to purchase stickers. Now, I am learning how to use each of those stickers that come in my paper pack. I have so much fun creating those clusters!
For those of you who enjoy process videos, I have created one for you showing how I made each of the elements on this layout.
I hope that today’s project inspired you to try something new using that delightful Brushed Collection. Now ‘Hop” on over to Cat Nowak’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas.
