Today I have something a bit different, a framed collection of plants from the Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite. The idea comes from Audra Monk @thecraftyyogi. I created this version for a team get together earlier this year.
The frame was purchased from The Warehouse. I ordered them online as I needed about 7 or 8 for our team gathering plus one for the sample. Since the frame came with a mat with the 3 holes for photos I placed the plants to suit this layout.
Firstly the concrete looking pattern of paper from the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper was cut into three 15.3cm x 10.2cm (6” x 4”) pieces. These were glued to the back side of the mat behind the holes.

Secondly, stamp the various leaves and pots and then die cut them. I used Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Just Jade inks for the leaves. Evening Evergreen, Cinnamon Cider and Gray Granite inks for the pots and the same colours in card stock for the spiky leaves and smaller pots with the addition of Basic White and Cajun Craze.
Here’s the stamping layout on 1 piece of basic White cut in half longways so you can die cut the images once stamped.
Below are the die cuts needed to complete the picture. I took this image before I’d finalised the layout and didn’t use them all, hence the crosses.
The small pots in the first vertical row are Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider. The spiky leaves are Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
I used all products from the Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite, plus a shape from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack and Linen Thread.
Once you have all the pieces stamped and die cut you can assemble. The glass in my frame was close to the mat so I couldn’t use dimensionals. Therefore I used liquid glue and glue dots. In most cases I attached the leaves to the pots and then adhered the whole object as one.
The linen thread for the hanging pot on the right is attached to the hanger and then wrapped around and adhered to the back of the mat.
The Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite has been on high rotation in my craft room. Click here for my Plentiful Plants Photo Card or my Plentiful Plants Standing Easel Card. Both of which are available in my card shop.
