Flores suaves

Did you know that Stampin' Up! has a Spanish Catalog? It features a lot of the same sets as what is in the big English catalog. But it also has sets that are only in the spanish catalog. I have always loved the images in this set called Flores suaves, and finally pulled it out to stamp with it. I paired it with Very Vanilla, Basic Grey and Blushing Bride.

Altered Frame for Alli

I was given the task to alter this frame. I knew instantly that I would make it a frame with my only granddaughters picture. I have altered frames with her brothers pictures, but had never gotten around to doing one for her.

I first decided on the designer paper that I wanted to use. Since she was holding there gorgeous yellow tulips in the picture, I knew I wanted to use yellow. And of course I had to accent with pink for the girly girl she is. I added a line of scalloped Mellon mambo card stock, daffodil delight pompom trim, and crocheted lace ribbon.

Then I found this piece of lace that I had tinted with dies a long time ago. I added two of the SU vanilla roses and this cute butterfly charm that is a sticker!

I used the fancy flower die from Stampin' Up! to make this flower. After die cutting, I lightly misted it with our stampin mist and crumpled it up. Then smoothed it back out and add dazzling diamonds to the edges of the petals. A button and blossom in the center finished the blossom.

And of course I had to add pearls and a pink butterfly for a little whimsy to finish the frame.

Of course I got all my inspiration from this cutey putootey right here! I love you Alli!
