Sweet'n'Silly Pencil Lines Best Creation

First of all a bit THANK YOU to Best Creation! I won the entire Jubilee paper collection on their blog. These colors and motifs are just so adorable and perfect for my little princess.

This LO is based on the sketch 226 by pencillines. It was so inspiring to block the different papers instead of layering them and the examples of the Design Team were really beautiful.

We are still in the middle of winter and I needed a color boost. Hence the pink overkill.

Here is an example of the color blocking. To separate it a bit more, I stitched in between. See those cute, cute strawberry brads? You can get them here.

The title is very simple. I just printed the title on the color paper, ran it through my cuttlebug with the nestabilities and done. A few pearls here and there (love the ZVA creative basic strands)

With the paper, I did a bit of extra: I first cut with my exacto knife along the swirls printed on the paper. Then I used my paper piercer and poked the holes. A final step (while reading books to DD) I stitched all the swirls. I really like the effect but since it is very time consuming, this is really only something for vacation time. Too bad my week off is over.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. Head over to pencillines and participate in the sketch challenge. There is a great price waiting for you as well.

All the best,
