Wow, another overcast rainy day. Fighting to keep my own spirits up in light of the many days of rain we have had. Tomorrow is supposed to be better. Here is an altered project for me (including instructions):
I've always loved those plaques that had the Est. by date for a family, but they seemed expensive to me. So I decided to make my own. This was my second idea. I saw a butterfly painting in pottery barn kits that I wanted to replicate in boy colors for J. Well, let's just say that was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. It just looked like blobs of color, maybe the patterned paper was too much. So then I thought of this, and was able to use all the same supplies I had out anyway.
You will need one piece of white cardstock, and you can either print the title with the computer, use rub-ons, or stamp it. I used the computer. This is a scrap piece of paper for demonstration.
Then I used Cosmo Cricket's Flirt album as a template for the heart:
Then I filled in the heart with circle punched patterned paper of Lil man and Basic Grey buttons. I did the outline first, then filled in the middle.
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Lil Man Patterned Paper: Entire Paper Crafting kit; plus white bazzil cardstock, circle punch, pilot black pen and Basic grey Marrakech buttons.
And the surprise!! Think you have enough Cosmo? Enough is never enough! Check out the Cosmo blog for a sneak peek at the new line Early Bird, coming in May!
