Last One For Now

Ok, this will be the last tissue box cover i post for a while ! But I LOVE this one !! It's for my daughter to put on her desk at work. She loves dragonflys and all things pink :) so what to decorate this with was easy. The directions for the cover are Here .


The dragonflys are cut from - Doodlecharms, Gypsy Wanderings, Create a Critter and Paisley and are cut at 2.5 inches. To get the pattern paper I used my Gypsy and the Imagine. I don't have any of my cartridges anymore (story for another post !) so I had to be creative to use the papers I wanted from the Imagine Nursery Tails Cartridge. I used the rounded corner square shape that comes preloaded on the Imagine, sized it to 5.5 inches and filled it with the pattern paper I wanted. I did this 4 times to fill the 12 x 12 white textured cardstock. I then changed the settings to print only.

After I had the paper printed, I moved to my Gypsy and pulled up the dragonfly images from the various cartridges and placed them on the screen to match where the papers were on the mat. Then I cut ! Simple, right? Yes but I had to concentrate kinda hard so I got the right image to cut from the right paper . But it was worth it . I really like the way they came out.

The border was another Gypsy project. The image is from Easter 2010. I sized it to the height I wanted and copied 3 or 4 times and welded them all together. I know I will use this border lots more.

The solid paper is Stampin Up. All the extra embellishments I add are from my stash. I inked all the edges and used Dazzaling Diamond Glitter  - Stampin Up.

I think this is going to look great on my daughters desk!
