It's a Free for All!


Hi all! Just as in release week’s past — the week after Flourishes' release the design team hosts a free for all — where they pick up their favorite sets of the release and play with any or all! So, get ready for a feast for the eyes today! Just in case you missed it — here are this month’s gorgeous sets! And, TODAY is the very last day to take advantage of the July New Release Bundle — when you can get all four sets for 10% off the retail price. Just click HERE to see the bundle in the store!

On to my creation!
I have no idea why but I really wanted to try this frame from the Flowers and Frames set on Kraft paper. I stamped using Tuxedo Memento Ink and then colored it up with Copic markers and used these collections...


After I was done stamping and coloring, I did cut out my main frame using the Spellbinders Floral Ovals. I stamped the smallest oval from the stamp set on kraft, added a sentiment and cut it out using the second smallest frame from the Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG set. The paper is from the Glitz Pretty in Pink pad (brown polka dot, which was embossed at the edges and sanded for a little distressed effect) and the red was just from my scrap bin. Add some red seam binding ribbon (coming to the Flourishes store SOON), add a little floral embellishment (Flourishes used to carry this -- it's from Webster's Pages), and..... ta da! I really liked the look on the darker paper!

Here's a close up....

And that, my friends, is it!  Now be sure to hop on over and see what the design team has in store!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll see you all back here soon! Hope you have fun plans. I plan to relax! We've been in the middle of a basement remodel and I mean to tell you -- that's tough work! So, I told my husband, I'm on strike. I'm taking a few days off! LOL! Hope you can relax in your neck of the woods as well!  :-)
