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!

I absolutely love it! It's funny that you say you had to get creative with the letters. I thought you'd done it on purpose! I love the effect of having the different kinds of letters! Beautiful colors and overall a simply lovely creation! Thanks for linking my blog!
