Keep Calm and Smile Big - DS69

Hello my friends, are you ready for a brand-new Deconstructed Sketch? I hope so, because Amber has put together an amazing sketch this week! Check it out:

For my sample, I used a darling Technique Tuesday stamp set, Smile Big, and papers from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic 6x6 collection, both available at i {heart} papers. For the yellow strip at the top, I did some paper pleating using my Scor-Pal and 1/4" Scor-Tape. Tucked under the yellow strip is some dainty little May Arts Mini Pom-Pom trim in white that I also picked up at i {heart} papers. I love pom-pom trims, and this one is so tiny and cute! I added some colorful smiley faces (there are four in the Smile Big stamp set) that I stamped, punched with a 3/4" punch, and popped up with Sticky Thumb Dimensional Dots. Last is a pink bow topped with a turquoise button and some Natural Twine String Thread. The new stuff continues to pour in at i {heart} papers - check it out in the What's New section. And be sure to subscribe to the IHP blog feed for inspiration and all the latest updates.
