Guest Designer at My Sheri Crafts!! Heart month!

YAY! My week is finally here! I am a guest designer this week over at My Sheri Crafts!





This week's challenge is "Love Is In The Air!" - In addition to Valentine's Day coming up, February is Heart month. Love your Valentine, love your Heart and let's see at least two Hearts on your project!

Here is what I did for this Guest Designer project...


Isn't is so pretty!? :) I used a 5x7 photo collage of my daughter and I last Valentine's Day. It says, "Happy Valentine's Day 2011" on the top and, "Kenzie & Mommy" on the bottom. The rose paper is Colorbok, and the pink and red etched looking paper is by Junkitz, the date on this paper is 2005! :O I have seriously probably had it that long! LOL The paper used for the 3 Loves is from Recollections. There is also 2 little red gingham button in the bottom left corner, which were part of a DT gift pack from Amanda! I loved everything she included!

Heart was cut from the Sweethearts Cartridge, pierced with my SewEasy, threaded with Maraschino twine from the twinery and popped up on pop dots. I love it!

For the top left hand corner I tried a new technique where I just ripped little slits in the top of the paper and rolled down to different lengths, then I glued a piece of matching accent paper to the back to show through.. I might use this again I love the little something extra it added! :)

I printed this saying out from a font on my computer and cut them down to size then inked them with pink and popped them up for dimension. :) Love this saying, and the font is perfect for the theme!

I'm so happy I got to be a guest designer this week! I hope you come play with us for our new challenge! Tell Sheri I sent you! :D You have until the 17th of Feb. You could be the next guest designer!

Challenges:
Paper Issues - Love

Michelle,
WOW!!! This is fabulous! What a great idea you had with the torn and rolled paper. I gotta try it out. The twine on the heart is wonderful. A beautiful sentiment and adorable photos.

you rocked this layout.. such wonderful photos, but all your details are so cute and I think you scored some extra scrappy points for using some oldie but goodie paper from junkitz. i still have some of that line in my stash somewhere.. lol... Thanks so much for playing along with us at SCrapbookers Anonymous. =)
