H2H Challenges: Once Upon a Time

This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is called "once upon a time."  Do you think of princesses or damsels in distress?  Do you think about your favorite children's book?  There are so many different ways to incorporate this fun theme into your crafty projects this week.
For this challenge, I decided to make a bracket frame for our new "library."  I have been in love with this saying for quite some time, so I used the upcoming July stamp of the month (Circus Alphabet) to stamp my letters and numbers.
You do know what you'll find in the library section 398.2, right?
The entire project uses the Skylark collection.  These banners are on the B&T Duos- the stripes at right are on the background B&T and the others are fussy cut from the Desert Sand B&T.  I used Aqua Dots to embellish the project.  (You'll also find pieces of Gold Polka Dot and Lagoon washi tape too.)

The bracket frame and the interior bracket frame with swirls are both cut from the CTMH/Cricut Art Philosophy collection.

Here's a final peek at the inside of the shadow box:
Be sure to check out all of the H2H DT inspiration for this challenge.  All of the April challenges are open until the end of the month.  

What is your favorite fairy tale?  My older daughter always loved Sleeping Beauty, little sister loved Cinderella, and my fave is probably Beauty and the Beast.


  1. I love this! Skylark is very fairytale like; I never thought about it like that! TFS

    Beauty and the Beast is my fav!

  2. This is beautiful! It will look great in your library, too.

  3. Love the addition of the washi...and until I read your post, I was wondering what 398.2


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
