a warm Smile 57

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, May 22, 2011 @ 10:20 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a great weekend! I arrived home yesterday late afternoon from my weekend away papercrafting event. I had such a great time, I can't wait to show you some of the projects we created. I need to print photos to complete a few layouts and a mini book before I share. I've never attended a crop nor a workshop so I was a bit unsure what I had gotten myself into but what an AWESOME surprise!!! I have the day off from work today so I am going to work on a few of those projects so I can share them with you :)

I made this card awhile ago but because of various DT projects and commitments, I hadn't had the chance to share. Sort of my version of a CAS card featuring a sweet sentiment from the JustRite Stampers JB-09905 3 1/4" Smile - Interlocking stamp set.
I combined a few different pieces of patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology  Collection and using a Spellbinders™Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite die template to cut borders using patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. I topped it off with a doily and felt flower both made using the following PTI dies: PTI Doily Details Collection and Beautiful Blooms 11.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Stampers JB-09905 3 1/4" Smile - Interlocking
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, Grand Calibur,
PTI Doily Details Collection, Beautiful Blooms 11, Sizzix Vagabond
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology, My Mind's Eye
