Memory Keeper

Hi Stampers,

Did you remember to set your clocks ahead yesterday?  That means Spring is on it's way!!! :o)  I can't wait for the longer days. . . there is nothing worse than getting off work at 5 and it being dark before 6.  For Christmas Rocky and I got bikes, and we all are looking forward to bike rides this summer.  I have hopes of finding a bike trailer at a yard sale this summer so that the new baby can join us too!

With all of the memories we will be creating this summer I just know I need to created Memory Keeper to keep them on.  Below you'll find a Memory Keeper that was created by Stampin Up!  All of the supplies and directions are listed below.
•Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon
•Linen thread
•5/8" Jumbo brads
•Sizzix Big Shot
•Lattice Bigz die
•Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die
•18" x 18" artist canvas
•Background fabric (2/3 yard)
•Push pins


1.Adhere background fabric to canvas.

2.Die cut lattice shapes from fabric using Big Shot and Lattice Bigz die. Adhere to fabric in rows.

3.Adhere Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon to fabric in crisscross pattern. Attach 5/8" Jumbo brads where ribbon intersects. Adhere Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon around outside edges of canvas.

4.Die cut six large and six small butterflies using Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. Create double-sided butterflies by adhering butterflies together, resulting in three large and three small double-sided butterflies. Tie linen thread around the middle leaving two long ends for antennae. Attach butterflies to canvas using push pins.
Thanks for stopping by today!
