How I created my Title

I just wanted to show you how I created my Happy Scrappin' Title 

First I cut out the Happy Scrappin' letters with my Cricut machine. I used the StoryBook Cricut cartridge. I cut the letters at 1.25" and then inked them with chestnut roan chalk ink.  I glued them to my hand cut white corrugated pennants creating a banner.

To create all my layered flowers I cut multiple patterned papers from MME's Collectable "Notable" line. I also cut some natural and white corrugated paper layers.  I used my Sizzix Big Shot Machine with the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die. I love this die, as you get four different size floral layers.

Then using my Chestnut Roan chalk ink I inked all the flowers. I also dry embossed some of the flower petals and hand cut some leaves. I layered them together attaching with glue dots to create multiple layered 3D flowers.  I added enamel dots to the centers of some of the flowers.  These too are from the MME Collectable line.

To complete my Title layout I used my Kiwi Lane scallop border to cut two borders and then I layered all my pieces together. I added the 3D flowers and attached my banner with bakers twine.  I then added a sweet wood veneer bird to finish off my project.
