I knew I wanted to use the word 'family' and so that was the beginning for my project. From there I picked out my Stampin' Up! designer series paper, and that lead me to using my Heartfelt Thanks stamp set.
I began by creating my background layout and then I worked on stamping the letters and I layered them onto my SU designer series paper. There is a burgundy layer along the bottom that I punched using my eyelet border punch.
Next, I stamped the word happy from my Define Your Life stamp set and placed that in the middle along the bottom and then I stamped and cut out the flower images. Then I added my embellishments and here I decided to go with two pieces from my hodge podge hardware set and I added a small piece of ribbon through the square clip hardware.
The last thing I needed to do was to frame my page. This was a really easy project and I had fun making it. I ended up making two more framed are projects and I'll be sharing those projects with you within the next week or so.
I've posted a few pictures below and the last picture I was trying to get a close up for you. If you click on the photos a new window will open with a larger image so that you can see it better.
