I Love Your Smile 49

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 2, 2014 @ 12:45 AM | , , , , ,


Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! I had some "me" time today so I made a few projects using pretty Pion design patterned papers from the Alma's Sewing Room collection. First up is a layout featuring a trio of photos of sweet Meredith:
Using Spellbinders dies, I cut multiple layers of pretty Pion design papers, layered, and stitched them together along with a photo. Prior to adhereing them in place, I added texture and design, using the MFT Petal Circles Stencil. For the title, I stamped a sentiment from MFT Complimentary Greetings:
For layout sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Scrap Africa challenge which is a sketch challenge:
Next up is a card made from the leftover layout scraps along with a sentiment from MFT More Essential Sentiments:
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of MFT Primitive White then cut using a Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 die:
For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
