Scrapbooking Ideas and Techniques for Weaving Florals with Text | Get It ScrappedStaggered text woven with floral arrangements is a currently trendy look — and a cool source of inspiration for the scrapbook page. Check out how our team members took this inspiration and used it on their scrapbook pages.

Here’s a look at the trendy style collected on Pinterest.

Kelly Prang says, “This page is about my excitement as I plan a spring break getaway for March to Hawaii.  This is my first time getting to go to Hawaii and I am SUPER excited about the opportunity! I used flat floral images combined with dimensional leaves, then layered words in and amongst the letters to represent the lushness and beauty of a tropical island. I think the floral and word weaving are a good match for my story of looking forward to a getaway during the cold, wet winter.”

Christy Strickler says, “This page featuring my sister with me will go in my wedding album in the section for members of the bridal party.”

“I noticed how many of the inspiration photos featured simple titles woven in with flowers. Each one also seemed to feature a base or frame to anchor the design. I started my arrangement by using the doilies as anchor, then I added the photo and the flowers. I chose one large wire sprig to frame part of my photo. I was then able to add more flowers to the sprig and weave in the title.”

“I used dimensional glue to get everything to lay in layers just the right way. The floral design worked well for a wedding photo. It also made for a quick, yet fully embellished page. The ornate design doesn’t feel simple, yet this page was made in less than an hour. It was fun to challenge myself to find the right kind of flowers from my stash. The sprig had been in my supplies for years.”

Audrey Tan says, “This page is about our trip to Perth during the Christmas and New Year holidays. We were asked if we were interested in going with another family and we did. I glad we went as we had the most enjoyable time ever.”

“I made use of flowers that I saw in Perth and incorporated them into my page. I placed my title on and among the flowers and used deep shadows to complete the look.”

Ronnie Crowley says, “Weaving florals was a perfect solution to showcase some of my pictures from my garden this  summer. Digital weaving leaves and strings through the alphas is all about layers, masks and shadows. I always use masks so edits I make are non-destructive and if I change my mind on something I can go back to the original element. It was fun to weave elements through the metal letters trying to make it look as it would in the real garden. Creatively, it’s a challenge and can take some time, but the end results are worth it.”

Amy Kingsford says, “My page is about how my boys inspire me to keep snapping photos and telling stories and even get in front of the lens once in a while. I used floral die cuts and sticker alphas to create this woven floral look for my title–using the shape of the foliage to guide the placement of my letters. I glued down the centers of the die cuts leaving the ends free to fold and tuck as necessary when weaving my letters. This was a fun challenge, and I came away with a title that captures the eye. This is like nothing I’ve ever done before!”
