Hello Friends! Hope you are having a great week so far! Here at our house its kinda quiet with only one daughter at home now but the back to school routine is starting to get easier! LOL I hate getting up at 5am!
Back in the Spring, my hubby plant a whole section of our back yard with nothing but sunflowers. To say they were very beautiful is an understatement. Before they started to fade, I got my youngest daughter to poise for a few pictures. Here is a layout I created using papers from the Great Outdoors Collection by The Paper Loft LC, plus stamps and svg files from JustRite Paper crafts.
Can't you tell she is a teenager? She wasn't real happy with me about having to pose for these pictures but being able to wear her new first day of school outfit helped alittle! LOL
So the sunflowers are a Stitched Sunflowers Vintage Labels Eight Clear Stamps from JustRite Papercrafts. Along with the stamps you can purchase the matching SVG files for your Silhouette (or other digital cutter). So what I did first was to cut out these flowers and leaves using some smooth ivory cardstock (good for coloring with copics) and then I stamped the sunflower and leaf images. My friend, Heidi Blankenship, did a video on how easy this is.....check it out HERE. It's definitely not hard to match up the cut files with the stamps. After coloring the stamps with copic markers, I added the gold glitter to the middle of the flowers.
Here are a few close-ups.......
I used my Silhouette to cut out the words and ran those thru my Xyron for the adhesive. I added some pearl flourishes to bling it up alittle more. If you are a friend of mine on facebook, you know that 2 days a week I watch my 5 yr old great nephew.....I showed him this layout and he said "where is her name?" I had to laugh.....so I got out my Dymo Label Maker and added Cassie's name. Jackson thought the label maker was pretty cool! LOL
Thanks for stopping by today! I am working on some more cool projects that I will be showing you soon! Have a wonderful week!
