Autumn's All Around

Hi Everyone,

I completed this project for the KellyCraft Blog and I thought I would share it here with you!

I am back with another great project using the KellyCraft Get-it-Straight Laser Square. I know that I have said it before, but really, I love this product! This tool is what I call my all-in-one! I have been stamping for many years and I can't tell you how many times my project is almost finished and I stamp that last image only to have it not stamp completely on my paper. How frustrating! Well, with my Get-it-Straight Laser Square not only can I line my page elements up perfectly, I can also use it to re-stamp my incomplete images. I am so in love!

This project is a fairly simple to create and sunflowers for me, always remind me of Autumn. With the stamped sunflower and a few embellishments, you have a wonderful project that you can hang on the wall or sit it on your table. And for a beautiful table centerpiece, place your frame on a table next to a vase filled with sunflowers. Now that would be very, very pretty.

Thank you for joining me. Until next time...

the wings free
