Supplies: Stitched – Blocking Patterned Paper (368951):  Fine & Dandy – Accent and Phrases Chipboard (370087); Rise and Shine – Layered Tags (370041); Thickers – Foam Rockabye White (370560); Cut File – American Crafts Rose Lace; other – watercolors

How to: Use a sketch pen to "draw" the Rose Lace background onto a sheet of watercolor paper. Use the lines as a guide and paint in various colors of flowers and leaves. Place the painted piece of paper back into the Silhouette machine and cut out the same design. (NOTE: You could also just cut out the background, skipping the sketch pen shape. I wanted mine to have some of the white edging around the watercolored design.) Adhere floral background to the Blocking paper as shown. Use Thickers to spell out your title along the edge of the floral background. Add your photo, tags, and chipboard.


Have a lovely and awesome weekend! See you again in JUNE!
