My Art - Valentine's card

A Valentine's card for my special guy!! Used more pieces from that heart sticker pack I used earlier this week to create this one!! The tag in the vellum envelope features one of the round sticker tags which I layered onto a white one which is stamped on the bottom with a phrase from SU. This set was a hostess set last catalog and I managed to snag it at the open house my SU demo had on the weekend!! I am getting to a place where I need more time not more stamps!!! The sidebar is also a sticker. I stamped the background with the collage love stamp from my latest SeeD set!!

The vellum envelope is created from a square of vellum and sealed with a punchie!! Very quick and easy way to make an envelope - just fold three points to the middle - and they can be created any size!! I like to use this one on cards because of how quick and easy it is!!

Make sure you take some time to let that special person know how much you love and appreciate them!!


My Art - Journal tip ins

Created this layout with the theme of vintage children for the journal group. It was totally fun to do!! I used my Sizzix Alphablock dies to cut out the header letters. Added a strip of white scalloped cardstock between the "bulletin board" and the header. I use my scallop scissors and then a push pin to poke holes in each scallop to create a lace effect. Try using thick fun foam or a foamy mouse pad under your cardstock to get even holes. I created the diamond pattern with cardstock strips over the scrapbook paper. I glued the edges and used thread and white pearl seed beads on the inner junctions so it would be like a real bulletin board and the images could be just tucked in. The images are laser printed to which I have added, in Dymo font, a characteristic of children - wise, loyal, curious, etc. This is for February and I am way ahead of the game!! So new for me!!
