Welcome to the Bloggin' Friends Blog Hop for February! This month's theme was Valentine's Day/Love. We have some new bloggers joining us this month, and I'm so happy to have them join us! Please be sure to visit all the blogs to get some great inspiration!
I chose to do three projects this month -- a card, a scrapbook layout, and a treat box. I hope you enjoy reading about them!
The card base is Real Red, the next layer is Basic Black, and the card front is Crumb Cake stamped with the Hardwood background stamp with Crumb Cake ink. The hearts were punched using the Sweetheart punch. I edged the edges of them with Basic Black and then added the dimension with a White Gel Pen. The ribbon behind the hearts is just some I had in my stash. The banner in the corner was made with the Banner Punch. I punched it twice and attached them to make the banner longer. The small heart is from the ____ punch set. The sentiment is from th Itty Bitty stamp set stamped with Real Red on Crumb Cake. It was die cut using the Itty Bitty Banner framelit. Then I sponged the edges of it with White Craft Ink to give it some dimension.
Stamp Set: Itty Bitty, Hardwood
Other: White Gel Pen
These pictures were from our vacation last year to Myrtle Beach. We were out shopping and decided to stop in the photo booth. Unfortunately, they didn't develop right, but I still wanted to get the strip scrapped.
The background paper is Real Red and the top layer is from the Timeless Elegance DSP. The strip in the middle is from the the Stacked with Love paper stack, layered on Real Red. I added some black bling along the tails. The pictures are mounted on Real Red and Basic Black. The sentiments are from the Something to Say and Bloomin' Love sets. The banners were punched from the banner punch. The doily was made with a Martha Stewart punch. The stickers on the banners were some I had in my stash.
DSP: Timeles Treasure
Punch: Banner, Itty Bitty Accent, 1 1/4" circle, 1 3/8" circle
I made these treat boxes for the ladies who will be at class this weekend. It's made with the Curvy Keepsake framelit. The heart was die cut with the Hearts a Flutter framelit. I used window sheets to make the window. The bow was made using the Build a Bow punch using Blushing Bride paper. The edges were sponged with Blushing Bride, too.
