Love Notes

Here are some photos of some valentines that I sent to loved ones last week.  I played around with the new Sending Love Specialty Paper.  This paper is so lovely because it has glitter already on the paper for some extra sparkle.  I also used the new "With All My Heart" stamp set, scallop trim border (Free Sale-A-Bration punch), the new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch, corduroy brads, and painted metal flower brads.

Baby Album Class: More photos

There were a few people that couldn't make the baby album class but have the kit that I prepared for them.  Here are the photos for those folks to make it easier for kit assembly.  This uses the Moments & Milestones kit from Stampin' Up! along with some extra cardstock and ribbons.  All the stickers used for embellishment come with the kit, and there are lots more stickers left over to make more pages.
This layout uses two strips of yellow ribbon in addition to the paper supplies.
The edges of the patterned paper are torn on this layout.

A decorative edge punch was used on the solid paper strip above.

A die cut strip is used across the bottom of this layout and the solid gray strip on the right pages is torn.

A ribbon is tied to the gray strip on the left page.
A sticker strip is used along the edge of the decorative paper on both pages.

Adhesive stickers are laying on the edges of the patterned paper strips.
The gray strip is overlaying the patterned paper.
A ribbon is tied to the patterned papter on the right page.
The edges of the patterned paper are inked with Basic Gray ink.

Cute as a Bug Baby Card

I made this card for a friend of mine that just had a baby girl.  I used the "Love Bug" hostess set with a color scheme that includes Certainly Celery, Old Olive, and Melon Mambo.  I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder on textured Celery paper for the background.
