March Project Parade ~ Day 10

Hi Verve Fans it's Lynda and I'm here to share with you my "Fun with Flowers" project!! This was an easy theme since Verve has the most beautiful flower stamps around!

I bought the memo holder at Target on clearance for about $5 some time ago. I made this for a friends birthday. All she needs to do is to add a picture of her beautiful family and put it on her desk at work! Luckily, she likes bling as much as I do!!! LOL!!!


Above is a picture of the note holder closed. The sentiment is an SU! rub on. I added some small Martha Stewart butterflies which I punched using dark pink and light blue K&Co. glitter paper. I added some small Zva rhinestones in the centers of each butterfly to tie in with the Zva rhinestone flourish. For the flowers ~ you know the blue glitter tissue paper Julee sends her stamps in??? Well, I used that and stamped the 2 flowers from the Feel the Sun set using Basic Black ink, multiple times. The top flower has both sizes layered and the bottom flower is just the smaller image. After cutting out the images, I squished them in to a ball, unraveled them and then layered them. I have a closer look at the flower further down in this post.

Here is a picture of the note holder open. The top of the box folds in to an easel to display the photo. Not only did I decorate the front but I stamped the blank memo papers inside.


My friend is the head nurse for a local Hematology ~ Oncology group of Doctors so I chose the Believe in Miracles sentiment from Verve's Believe set and paired it with the smaller flower from the Feel the Sun set for some of the blank notes. I stamped some other sentiments as well which you can find further down in this post. The flower was stamped using Cool Caribbean ink which matched Julee's blue tissue paper perfectly!


Here is a closer look at my fluffy flower and bling!!! You didn't think I would make something without bling did you? LOLOLOL!!!!


The silver flowers in the centers of the fluffy flowers are from SU!. I then added a Basic Grey large clear rhinestone for the centers of the silver metal flowers.


Here are 3 of the sentiments and flowers on more of the blank memo's. For these, I used both the Feel the Sun set as well as the Let it Shine set.
