Today Catherine Doucette has a super cute and amazing project for you…..


Words from Catherine:

One of the many things I love about Lauren’s templates, is how you can create many different things with the same template…you just need to use your imagination!  Hop on over and take a peek at what I thought the “Cute Lil Chick” cut file looked like :0)

Now it is my turn to share…….

Big Dreams Canvas


Now how about creating your own canvas? Something inspirational that makes you smile.

Your stamps and papercrafting supplies can be used for SO many amazing creations! Don’t limit your creativity to just cardstock.

There is nothing like taking your materials and making some amazing wall art! It can be SO SIMPLE and still be a WOW!

It is so fun to personalize your home and or workspace or make something inspirational. I love creating “wall art”.

I recently found this pink plain canvas at Michael’s. I fell in love with the color, and knew it wouldn’t take much to create some wall “art”.


“May you succeed far beyond your biggest dreams”

This sentiment is from the So Sentimental © set. I love it! Now talk about inspiring.I stamped it in pink ink, onto a punched label.

I used some Making Memories paint and “painted” on my large swirly flourish from Fanciful Flourishes ©.

I then cut some sweetheart colored cardstock using the Flutters and Flowers Cut File © and layered it onto my canvas, where I wanted my butterflies.

For my butterflies I used the outlined butterfly image from the All A Flutter © set. I stamped it in versamark onto vellum cardstock. I then used some detail white embossing powder and heat set it.  I also used the small flourish image from the So Sentimental © set, and stamped it on one side of the butterfly wing on either butterfly. Once cooled, I cut out the butterflies and adhered them to my canvas over the cardstock butterflies, using a clear glue dot


My flowers were created using the NEW! Fanciful Flowers Cut File © I used one of the scallop flowers in the set. I love making my own flowers.

I cut them from white cardstock. I cut each set of petals (3 total) resizing to 75%. I used some paint to “paint” my paper. Once dry,  I ran them through my crimper in various directions for a fun texture, and distressed look. To complete the look I sponged on some ink. Each one is layered with dimensionals.

Once the flower was complete I added it to my canvas!

I tied on some butterfly ribbon I purchased at Michael’s a few months back. Just that little something extra

This project took about 25 minutes in all.

This will look so amazing on the wall of my girls room. To think it cost me only $2.50 to make!

I hope you give this a try some time 😀
