Warm and Cozy Layout Tutorial

For technique Tuesday, Gabrielle is showing us how to make a 
layout that gives you the warm fuzzies using the 
Powder Mountain collection and some Tutu Double Dot!
I love it!

Cuddles
~ Use soft color palette (here I used a soft pink, grey and tan)
~ Decorating with soft fabric blooms (here I used Bo Bunny's crocheted blooms and made some felt  roses ...see a brief tutorial below to make these)
~ Add textural fabric elements (here I used some burlap, and paper lace as well as some crocheted lace) to give the page a homespun feel.
~ Add buttons and machine stitching, it's a quick way to give a page a soft fabric look. And don't forget the little details like tying some kitchen twine through the button holes, it gives a nice finish to the flower centers.
 Here are some close-ups of the page...
Here is a brief tutorial on how I made the felt roses, it's so easy with felt, you almost don't need glue because felt is almost like velcro at holding itself together!
