It’s been a busy few months, and I’m afraid my blog posts have suffered. A huge project at school with my sophomores ended last Friday, January 27, with a celebration that took place at our local nursing home/assisted living center. With that celebration our Life Story Project ended.
Well, I’m back, and I’ve fallen in love with the Stampin’ Up! products in the new Occasions 2017 Catalog, including the “Falling in Love” Suite.
I combined the Designer Series Paper from that suite with the beautiful intricate “Bloomin’ Heart” thinlits in the Annual Catalog, cut in Rose Red paper with a Crumb Cake heart slightly offset behind it. The sentiment is also from the “Bloomin’ Heart” stamp set. The lace border at the bottom is in Crumb Cake ink using a stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog called “Delicate Details.” I stamped the same lace stamp on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out a flower from the “Bloomin’ Hearts” thinlits, mounting it with a dimensional. A bit of Very Vanilla ribbon sets off that pretty lace. Together, these elements create a soft, lacy, and very romantic Valentine!
