LLWWC#31 - Make Your Own Flowers

Time passes by way too fast! It’s Wednesday again! Well, you know what that means! Yup, time for our La La Weekly Wednesday challenge! I am hosting this week’s challenge and I got an easy for everyone! You know all those beautiful handmade flowers you guys have been making and using on your amazing creations? Well, that’s the challenge---to MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS! You know I am loving these at the moment. Hehe

I used Porsha on my card today. Plus, I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the very first time! Well, for the flower, I used my Dahlia nestabilities again. I also used my scallop round punch and a small silk flower for the center. I haven't paper pieced in a while so that was what I did with Porsha's dress. This is just a great idea when you are not in the mood to color too much! hehe

This week's featured stamp is PORSHA, which means she is 20% of the regular price! Plus, this week's winner gets $10 credit toward any La La Land Crafts purchase, excluding digis.


Did you know? The recently released La La Land Crafts digi stamps are now in RUBBER! yes, you heard me right, RUBBAH! You can now get them in either digi or rubber!

For more inspiration, please hop over to La La Land Crafts!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous day, everyone!
