Sorry all, had to warn off my best and oldest friend – hopefully she’ll take the hint and go away!
This month had some amazing templates to choose from and it was hard to pick one to work with – I wanted to try them all! I finally chose letter#1 and stretched it into a 12×12:I used the newest Paperie club kit along with some Studio Calico PL kit pieces and stamps. I’m still loving the punched borders!
Some shimmery modeling creme behind the photo to mimic the border punch:
And great letter stickers for the title finished it off:
Don’t you love all the butterfly pins? I stuck them into the paper and taped them down in the back with washi tape – thanks to Cathie for that great idea!
For my story starter this month I decided to do a canvas instead of a traditional LO:
Almost everything on this one came from a Studio Calico PL kit – don’t you love that big ampersand stamp? It looks amazing when embossed!
I also embossed the paper dolls (love the heart that their hands form) on the journaling tag:
I tucked the tag behind the photo because 1. it’s what I normally do, and 2. since this a display piece I felt it was better hidden. There’s nothing very secretive written down there, just funny memories I have of the two of us since we were 6!
I finished it off by stamping the sides of the canvas so they wouldn’t be so bare when it was hanging on the wall:
