handmade flowers using tim holtz dies

yup, after a long time, i was able to finally create a little something.
i've seen handmade flowers used on layouts and mini albums over at youtube and i really wanted to do something like it.
since i have just cleaned my scraproom, it means i have space to start creating again. and these handmade flowers were first on my agenda.  first, i bought the tattered florals die by tim holtz, then searched youtube for video tutorials and then it was time to practice.
 i love what i was able to create!  

i followed the tutorial from these 3 ladies: marion (apieceofcraftdotcom); jennifer (craftbrulee) and tonya (psychomoms). i tried each version and liked best marion's and tonya's. i used my scraps for practice and i made a few pieces already. you can even embellish the flowers much like what i did with the first one i made. hopefully i can use these in my upcoming layouts and a create a few more. 

do try making one of these and be inspired to start creating for your scrapbooks.


  1. Wow! Very beautiful! They look like Prima flowers.

    Glad to see you are back to scrapping. Better get ready, I'm sure you'll have a lot to scrap about in the near future.

  2. These flowers look super! I am fixing to watch the videos you recommended and give them a try myself. Thanks so much for sharing. BTW: adorable baby! You must be thrilled to have this little life to document in your scrapbook.
