Papercraft Star Challenge #3

This week's challenge for Papercraft Star was the sketch above.

I have to say I struggled with this one. It's been a long--long time since I've done a 12 x 12 layout, and I don't think I have ever put this many photos on one page. LOL I chose to use photos of flowers from around my yard and a couple from my mom's too. Crepe myrtle, wisteria, pear, azalea, hydrangea, turks cap lily(we always call this a tiger lily which is silly since tigers have stripes not spots LOL), day lily, gardenia, and gerbera daisy flowers make up the page. The page is very simple with matted photos, a Cricut cut sentiment from one of the new Cricut Lite cartridges, and some fancy cuts from the Storybook cart that I painted with some Perfect pearls in jewel tones. I also painted the sentiment with some black puff paint for a little texture, and added a stamped butterfly.

Paper: Bazzill, white cardstock
Stamp: Martha Stewart butterflies
Inks etc.: Perfect Pearls, Stazon Black, Scribbles Black 3-D paint
Tools: Cricut, Cricut Lite Bloom cartridge, Storybook cartridge

Submissions for this challenge will be taken until 12:00 p.m. (EST) Saturday, July 10, after which voting will be opened to the public through Monday July 12. This sketch lends itself to such a great opportunity to scrap a memory you've captured in a series of photos (wish I'd had that--LOL). So dig out those photos, scrap that layout, and come enter it in our challenge. We'd love to see what you can create from this sketch.

Have a great day!
