Sister layout made using the Sophie and Sophisitcated cartridges

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a layout that I made using the Sophie and the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridges. If it looks familiar to you perhaps you noticed it on the Hello Thursday look book. It was a project I made for Provo Craft and was thrilled to see it featured!

This layout has lots of cuts and was somewhat time consuming.However, with all of the cut sizes I am about to give you this should be quite easy to duplicate.

The paper is from Crate paper and the cardstock is from Close To My Heart. 'Sister' is cut out using the TC Sophisitcated cartridge at 2 1/2".
Everything else is cut out using Sophie. I cut the leaves out at 1 1/2". The leaf cluster is cut out at 5". The daisies were cut at 3" and 2". The pink flower is cut out at 1 1/2" and a 3/4".
The roses are cut out at 2", 2 1/2", and 1 3/4". The blue flowers are cut out at 1 1/2".
This journaling tag is cut out at 3 1/2" and 3". The large shape (found in the doily portion of the cartridge) that everything sits on was cut out at 10 1/4".

Thank you so much for popping by today! If you love these flowers and want to see even more check out my blog because I have another 3D flower tutorial over there today! Check it out by clicking here ==> Courtney Lane Designs.


Have a terrific Tuesday!!
