Avery Elle July 2012 Inspiration Week

Avery Elle officially opened it's online doors in June, but today starts the first Inspiration Week for the DT!  I will warn you that I have a bunch to share, so keeping checking back throughout the week for more Avery Elle projects:)  Without further ado, let me share my favorite project!


Right now, you're probably thinking to yourself "where'd the fruit stamps come from?"  If you look really closely, you'll see that I used stamps from the "Bright Days" and the "Blossoms & Blooms" sets to create my fruit!  The starburst pattern made the perfect background and the tiny petal stamp was just the right shape and size for seeds!  This set was easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!  You knew I was going to say that;)  


Once I got started, I just couldn't stop at lemons.  How about a watermelon or orange with little orange blossoms?  I had to stop myself from making more paper fruit for now, but don't think a kiwi and a pink grapefruit aren't coming soon.  Super cute and more importantly, super easy!  {FYI, the sentiments are printed off on the computer using the free Blackjack and Boris Black Boxx fonts.  I used my Silhouette to cut the leaves and flowers, but hand cutting or punches would do the trick as well.}


Thanks so much for stopping by to check out today's projects!  I'll be popping in later this week with a few more Avery Elle projects:)  Please check in at the rest of the DT blogs to see lots more inspiration!
