Lucky You
I’m still playing with my Big Shot, and after cutting out letters with the Naturally Serif die I wondered what to do with them. I decided to pair them up with the Define Your Life set of definitions. When I got the idea to place both the letters and the definition in a frame, I had to find die-cuts that would fit inside the Cute & Curly label. So, that’s how I ended up picking the “lucky” definition: both the uppercase and lowercase Ls fit inside the frame!

I embellished with Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon, and stamped a Fresh Cuts image in two corners of the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper background. The Kiwi Kiss images behind the letters and definition stamp were stamped off once.

Thanks for stopping by!
