Help Wanted Card

0
Ok it is time to start clearing the scraps waiting for CHA new releases. I had pre-colored this image from the Hope & Grace Luandry collection from The Greeting Farm. She is stamped on Cryogen paper. I thought she was beautifully colored to match the paper scraps from a Flamingo 5 Dear Lizzy Paper that I did last year. I used the back side of the patterned paper to cut the loopy oval frame around the image.


From Flamingo Scraps: Seam Binding, Glimmer Mist, Patterned Paper: Dear Lizzy, Lace.
Other: Pearls, Spellbinders Loopy oval die cut, The Greeting Farm: Hope & Grace Laundry, Copics, Cardstock, EK Success Label Punch


After I fussy cut her out, I used one of my EK Success Label punches with the scraps of the cryogen paper (love the sparkles in this paper), and cut it in half length wise to make a tab/sign. Then I hand drew the "Help Wanted". I used my glimmer mists to add color to the little clothes pin. Then I finished off the card, by taking apart a mulberry flower to create 3 separate flowers. I then used buttons with seam bind scraps as flower centers.

This entire card was made from little scraps on my desk. LOVE IT!

My Valentine

0
So I'm sitting in my craft room the other day finishing a project and my Son walks in, puts his arms around me and says "Mommy will you be my Valentine?" without blinking or even the slightest hesitation I said "YES - OF COURSE - FOREVER!" About 10 mins later, I get a notification of a note on my Facebook wall - He had posted the sweetest note about me being the only true love of his life! HELLO - I don't need to tell any of you how I felt, but after I quit crying all over my keyboard - I was floating on air!

The next day - Valentine's Day - he walks in with this paper heart that he had written in Spanish class. Before the details of the past few days escaped me - I wanted to create a layout.

Bazzil Cardstock: maroon; My Mind's Eye: patterned paper; Glimmer Mist: Poppy Seed & Antique Brass; Marion Smith Designs: Dital Paper - Jan day 29 & Envelope - February Day 7; Webster's Pages: Pink Bloomers; Maya Road: Love & Heart chipboard pieces; Karls001: Butterfly Kisses Flowers (Crystal), wheat flowers in pink; Prima: Mask - Floral Frenzy, Cabbage Rosebuds, and Miniature Roses; Crocheted Lace, Pearls.



The background paper says I Love You all over it and is vintage My Mind's Eye. I decided to dress it up a bit with my Glimmer sprays and the Floral Frenzy screen from Prima.

A closer look shows that I used Marion's digital downloads on my layout. In Spot 1, I used the January Day 29 download to mat the image, and in Spot 2, I used February's Day 7 envelope to house the note off my Facebook Wall.


Here is a closer look at the collage of embellies flanking the bottom of the picture. I love how the crystal flowers fill the space, but still allow the pattern of the paper and sprays to filter through.



I know one thing - this boy sure has my heart in the palm of his hand. No matter how old you get - your Momma will always be your Valentine!

I don't know about you - but I think you can never have too many paper hearts!
