More project details by Lisa Gregory, our August Guest Designer

For the next layout I created all of the flowers with the single page of yellow card stock in the kit. And I still had some scraps left over to created the journaling words on. These Maja Design papers were an absolute pleasure to work with. They are gorgeous!! They begged to be adorned with flowers!!

 "Little but Fierce"

 These are the flowers that I created the tutorial for.

Just another closeup of the flower cluster.

Believe it or not, the corrugated paper did come with the kit. I used the packing box. Just tore a small piece off of the box and peeled back the paper.

Here is a close up showing the cluster of flowers. I used some Kraft paper for the leafy flourishes.

The journaling words were printed up using Photoshop. I printed out the phrase and cut the individual words apart. I inked the edges and using a very fine tipped Zig pen, I outlined right inside and outside of each word for added dimension. It is a phrase from Shakespeare.

I created a file for the butterflies. I just printed them out, cut them up and rubbed  some Rock Candy Stickles on them, curled the wings a bit and let them dry. They turn out to be little gems...

I used an old stamp from the  Build a Frame Stamp set from  IOD for the opposite corners to add a bit of design.

Thank you for having me as a Guest Designer this month. I truly enjoyed working with the beautiful kit. xo
