Welcome! I’m pretty proud of the project I’ve got to share with you today. My inspiration was the Strong & Beautiful stamp set, which has so many lovely positive messages. The gorgeous papers in the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper pack coordinated beautifully.  And then the magic happened, when I laid a sheet of the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper on top. Voila!

Each of the sweet little blocks on the framed piece are also part of the Petal Promenade papers. Isn’t it lovely? Just cut the blocks into 3″ x 3″ squares and you’re ready to start creating each little vignette. Can’t get any easier than that.

And my color combination came from the papers of course. I used Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. I just love the softness and elegance.

My butterflies were stamped using the Beautiful Gala set. It’s so easy to create whatever colors you want, because there are stamps to fill in the color as well. I’ll bet you are dying to create one of these for someone very special in your life. I’ve created three so far, one for a very dear friend, one for my daughter and of course one for my Mom. I would love to share the process with you and have filmed a tutorial so you can create right along with me.
