Spring Tradition at Como Layout

Hello and Welcome!

My son and I have a tradition to see the Macy's Flower Show over spring break. Sadly, the downtown Macy's closed this year so we had to find a new place. The Como Conservatory was just the ticket, not only beautiful flowers, but there is also a zoo next door. A two-fer!

I was challenged to use Therm O Web's products, and wow, did I have fun. I took Therm O Web's Sticky Strip Runner and Sticky Dot Mini Runner and ran horizontal & vertical stripes across white cardstock. Then I just rubbed with my fingers a rainbow of Deco Foil colors onto the adhesive. Check out the fabulous results and NO laminator needed! This page is based on a sketch on the Therm O Web blog.


Next I added my photos on a grid and matted it in black. Then, using Elle's Studio's new Live Love Laugh Bit & Pieces, I embellished the layout. Next, I cut the flowers with Poppy Stamp's "Stitched Blooming Trio" dies (my new favorite) from Elle's Studio's Live Laugh Love pattern papers. To finish off the page, I stacked the flowers and added dots with Ranger's Enamel Accents.
