Simple Fun

Happy Saturday to you!

Today I have a fun page for you that I created using the American Crafts Dear Lizzy line from the Thoughts2Paper store. I used some of the coordinating items in the line, the felt accent, the chipboad flowers and the crocheted flowers.

This is one of my favorite photos from this summer! It was a hot night and the kids needed to run some energy off so we just put the sprinkler out. They had more fun with that than anything! I grabbed some awesome photos too. This photo reminds me that the best things in life are really free.

When I looked at these papers, I just had to start cutting. The movement and lines of the patterns were so whimsical. To create the fawn I used my cricut cartridge "Give a Hoot", then I added some fibers to create her eyelashes, the crocheted flower was a final touch. Journaling on the bottom swirl finished the page nicely for me. I don't typically journal in my handwriting a lot, but I challenged myself and am glad I did it!

Other items used are Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Me and My Big Ideas chipboard alphas, round epoxy alphas, popdots and thread.

Take a moment to pop on over to the Thoughts2Paper store to check out our Cricut cartridges (Create a Critter is just adorable!), paper lines and punches! Dear Lizzy was so popular that the papers did sell out, but there are still some coordinating items available.  You will be sure to find just the right products to inspire you!

Have a fabulous weekend!!!
