Make Life Big

Finishing up the month of May with this fun project.
I was very inspired by Hannah Clark's project. It was on Pinterest!

The chipboard pieces are from an old Lacing Card Kit by Cosmo Cricket. The papers are Everyday Poetry by Webster's Pages, available in Scrap That!'s June "Life's Muse" Kit.

Colored and fussy cut these flowers. I cut the "fence", inked and stamped it.

The door is stamped with brown Distress Ink. The butterfly is from a Fiskars punch. Thickers by American Crafts. Assorted letter stickers from Webster's Pages and Authentique.

The die cut is a wee bit ink. Check out my video tutorial for this fabulous flower.

Fun squares. Used a micron pen to doodle a border. Running out of letters so I had to get creative!

Stamped, punched, colored, inked, and stickled these clouds.

A fun banner to finish up. I used a border punch by Fiskars and cut apart for decorative banner edges.

Thanks for stopping by!

angels *Scrap That! June "Life's Muse" Kit*

We have a sketch challenge at Scrap That! for the month of June. 
Amarilys rocks my socks with her sketches!

Aren't they DARLING! I love these two girls! I thought of them immediately when I saw the sweet, adorable contents of this kit from Scrap That! The papers are from Everyday Poetry by Webster's Pages. The flowers are from Zva, Prima, and Green Tara.

The ticket and bauble are also in the June kit, by Tim Holtz and Prima respectively.

Flowers and bling from the kit. I always cut bling apart to get more mileage.

I loved the doilies in Amy's sketch but didn't have any in my stash. So, I made a cut from Storybook with my Cricut Expression. Inked and Stickled it.

I love the letters in this kit! I accented the title with a bit of fussy cutting and a punched butterfly.

I added touches of Stickles to the edges all over this LO.

Thanks for stopping by!
