Today by Helen Tilbury

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day!! I created this off-the-page project as a gift for a special friend of mine, as an encouragement to her to remember to stay happy & positive in life.

The Verano Azul Collection was perfect for this. The colours are fresh & modern & all the sayings are inspirational & motivational.

I bought this heart on a stand as a décor item for my home some time back. We have enjoyed it, but it was very plain, with the word “Home”carved right through it. I decided to recycle it as the base of a special gift for my friend, which meant I had to ensure that I layered Verano Azul papers behind the sentiment cards, to cover the “Home” engraving.

I used the Verano Azul Celadon pattern paper for my phrases & layered various other Verano Azul Papers behind them.

I embellished with Verano Azul die-cuts & stickers & added some flowers, butterflies & a bird & nest, as my friend is a huge animal lover!

This is my last project for 7 Dots Studio! I have loved being a part of this team & will miss you all.

Thank you for all your support during 2015 & I wish all you 7 Dots Studio fans a happy & prosperous new year!
