Mother's Day Layout


Cynthia put together another beautiful layout using the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.  This layout was meant to be displayed and not placed into an album. 

Wouldn't a layout like this be a perfect present for Mother's Day? You could even adhere your paper onto a 12x12 canvas using the Best Glue Ever and start from there. Which gives me a great idea....

A few close-up photos of Cynthia's lovely page...


Cynthia is a master at layering many details and creating depth. She used black to outline and define the edge of her banners and topped them with a rolled rose made from book paper.

To make a rolled flower, first create a large glue spot with the Best Glue Ever on a piece of leftover release paper - like the backing from a pack of stickers. Make the glue about the size of a nickel for a medium-sized flower like Cynthia's.

Tear several strips of book paper and place a drop of the Best Glue Ever at the end. Once your glue spot is tacky, roll the paper strips together into a tight spiral then press the bottom into your glue spot. Fuss the edges of the paper, bending and inking them slightly


  1. This is absolutely gorgeous. I think this is my favorite of all of your projects that I have seen.

  2. This is so beautiful. I love the layering. The more you look, the more you find.

  3. Cynthia that is just gorgeous, all those little details make for a delightful page.


We love to read your ideas, questions, feedback.
