Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful


SEPTEMBER 2015 BLOG HOP

with Papertrey Ink and many of its loyal fans!





Oh, how I wished that I had ordered Heather's twig wreath last month! But when you look at your stash of paper crafting tools things pop up! I first inked the Hero Arts Chalkboard background stamp with HA Unicorn ink and smudged it with a paper towel. Used Papertrey Ink's Rustic Wreath die and cut it from wood veneer card stock. The leaves & acorns were die cut using Quilted: Autumn dies & paper scraps and finished with gold inked berry sprigs from the same set. The PTI sentiment is from Life is Beautiful. Before adhering the chalkboard panel to the card, score lines were added to imitate the framing on the awesome inspiration photo.

    1. I haven't used it but we have several single young adult women at church who often need an encouraging word. Some compare themselves to their married with babies friends and come up short in their own eyes.
