Lauren Conrad Inspired

April 24, 2014 No Comments

It is simply beautiful today.  Most of my fruit trees are in bloom.  And the sun is bright.  These things make me happy.  Thank you!

I don’t recall whether I have mentioned it here before, but I do a lot of looking.  Today in my looking, I was wandering through Lauren Conrad’s blog.  If you don’t know, she is one of the current style mavens.  I was curious to see what she had posted for Easter.  I know, it’s over.  But, some ideas/treatments transfer.  I loved her color combination in one post and the use of sequins in another — no real surprise there.  I had been working through an idea in my head and these two posts finally made the green light come on.

I wanted to make something for Mother’s Day.  You know it’s not too far away.  Here’s what I came up with:

I thought it would be fun to create something with a little more permanency.  I have visions of this on a wall, mantle, table for at least a couple of weeks.  Doesn’t Mom deserve at least as much time as we give to decorating for a few other holidays?

I took one of the charger plates that you can find around and embellished it.  First, I wrote “Mom” in hot glue and attached some Gold Sequin Trim.  Then, flowers were added in the lower right.  Using the Spiral Flower Die (can’t get enough of it), I made three roses from Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Next using the Banner framelits, I created a flower out of Coastal Cabana cardstock.  That flower has been floating around in my head for weeks!!  I’m glad it finally came out.  Here’s a closer look:

After cutting several Coastal Cabana banners, I curled them slightly with my Bone Folder.  Then, using my Silicone Craft Sheet and hot glue I assembled the “petals”.  The center of the flower is a 1″ Circle punch of Champagne Glimmer paper.  The cool twist accents are Bermuda Bay leftovers.  These are two of the remainders from cutting the roses with the Spiral Flower Die.  I love the airy dimension and non-traditional shape.  The Coastal Cabana diamonds are bits left from cutting the banners for the flower.  They work as a nice way to extend the design without clutter.
