Fussy-Cutting Large Floral Patterns

Hello, friends! Sherry here, with my favorite way to use large, floral patterns. Sometimes a patterned paper begs to be fussy-cut and Illustrated Faith's She Blooms paper is the perfect example of that. I love the bold, beautiful floral paper but (to me) using a 12x12 sheet is just too much of a good thing. I decided to cut a header strip for the top of the layout and a smaller strip for the bottom. I then layered some flowers around the photo collage to bring some of the pattern to the center of the layout.

The love and arrow stickers are from Simple Stories Carpe Diem sticker sheet, which pairs beautifully with the paper. Don't be overwhelmed by large patterns, take a deep breath and start cutting - I think you'll be happy with the end result!
