It is my pleasure to have Raquel Bowman join us this month as our Guest Designer!

My name is Raquel and I am an Australian primary school teacher, Mummy to two kiddies (Jack 1 & Charlotte 3) and wife to Clint. I admit I am pretty obsessed with scrapbooking and love nothing more than playing with a variety of yummy papers and embellishments and making pretty stuff. I love spending time with my family, sharing coffee with friends, having creative time, a glass of wine at the end of a tough day and all things social media! I have been scrapping for around twelve years now and feel I have finally ‘found’ my style. I’m a lover of layers and clusters and enjoy adding little details while still maintaining white space, balance and a cleanliness to my layouts. 

You can find me designing for online publication Jot Magazine, Hip Kit Club and manufacturers Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Pink Paislee.

We asked Raquel to create a page using any of our cut files she liked and this is what she created!

Cut files used: Around the World
I decided to go big for this layout! I super sized the 'lets go' tag, the globe and the plane and made them a key element to my page. I coordinated these cut files with the Journey Collection by Crate Paper which complimented them well. 
We also created a fun background cut file for Raquel to use and be prepared to be WOW'd at what she created with it!
I loved the floral design of this cut file and played around with a few ideas using it. In the end I decided to mat it onto some gorgeous 'Wonder' Crate Paper and cut it into a circle shape. This really softened the edges of the cut file and allowed me to continue with the floral and circular theme when embellishing. 
Amazing and inspiring right!
Thank you SO much to Raquel for guest designing for us today on our blog!

Good morning!

 

Today is the last day of our highlight on Floral week on the blog and I am finishing off with a project made with this floral background cut file:

I cut the design from simple white cardstock and then backed each "flower" with various patterns of paper.

The whole page came together quite quickly - once I chose the patterned paper, it was just a matter of adhering the papers to create my page!

I hope you have enjoyed all the floral creations on the blog this week - stay tuned tomorrow for the new designs being loaded to the store this weekend!
