my true love
Valentines day has come and gone. i still have the heart decorations set out around our house. which i still have not yet shared here. the last few weeks have been crazy! i thought January kept us busy....i have been totally taken off guard with this month and the new items on the calendar.
i nearly forgot to share this layout i created for the Urban Scrapbook Design Team.
i am sure we have had less days of sun this winter. it sure seems that every time i need to take a photo of a project, the light is not cooperating! anyways....it was super difficult to get the right contrasts on the papers.
part of the kit came with a set of stickers from Fancy Pants Designs. i stuck the banner flag stickers to cardstock and then trimmed to create a border. next i sewed the twine onto the banners, which was less tricky than i expected. i will try that technique again! i also used some Studio Calico Mr. Huey white mist and an old lace border punch that has been used many times. i took advantage of the pre-cut library pocket and used it to hold an extra photo and make it appear that the photos fell out of the pocket. one of my favourite features of my Cameo is using a shape and altering its size to an exact amount. i can also arrange shapes to be cut on a particular paper as well.
i cannot believe my husband and i are beginning our 18th year of marriage. that first year we were new university grads with great expectations. now here we are parents of school age children!
aside from hearts and love, the store is filled with all kinds of new goodies each week. i think i may have mentioned that the newest Prima arrived....oh! so many unique and new items. there have been many more boxes arriving this week, so i can't wait to see the newest to pick from.
