Big Girl Bed
Do you ever have one of those projects that you just can’t seem to get right? This page was one of those. For some reason I just couldn’t get the flowers to look right, the title was the wrong color and my paper was slightly whompy-jawed, but I persevered and it all came together in the end. My hubbie made this bed for our daughter when she was 2. Now it is her 2 year old's very own big girl bed that her Poppy made.
|I used the Layout from the LastingMemories Challenge which I thought was really cute.|
|I cut all my flowers with the Cricut in various sizes. The cartridges used where; Cake Basics, Preserves and Flower Shoppe.|
I also used A Child’s Year for the title frame and Lyrical Letters for the title. The letters are so thin that I decided to swap my blade for a Cricut pen and ‘cut’ it directly onto the frame. I used the brown pen, but against the pink it looks black so I decided to paint it with some Frosted Lace Stickles to sort of soften the look and to tie it in with the frosted strawberries on the paper.
TIP: I’ve been told that the best way to store your Stickles or glitter glue is upside down. Unfortunately the lids don’t lend themselves to being upside down. I had these little wooden do-hickeys that I got at a garage sale thinking I would use them as a stand for clothespin dolls (which I never made), however, they are perfect for holding my Stickles upside down. You can find the wooden pieces at most craft stores.
