Love is in the Air

With Valentine’s day coming up so soon, you had to know that I would be posting another Love project.

Our challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.  One of my favorite movies……LOVE ACTUALLY  is our theme!  We would like to see a project about love, something that you love, a place you love, something that you love to do, oh the love choices are endless for interpretation!

love, actually

 

This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls! 

The Paper Nest Dolls

 

I’ve got a tag for you today.  I love to play with layers and techniques so I thought this would be fun.  I got this from a make and take class I did at a scrapbook convention one year.  I just loved playing with different mediums  and making them all come together.

There is some stamping and inking and modge podge (oh who doesn’t love MP).  I really love that mesh overlay.  I don’t play with mesh nearly enough.  Paper images and some pearls and lace for that vintage feel.  I wanted to give it some pop of color so I added some diecut hearts from my stash.  Just a lovely vintage Parisian feel to this.

I hope you will play along with us at RCS this week for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor!  Show us what you love!!!

To Paris with Love

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  We have a lot to be thankful for.  At least I know I do and I am looking forward to some yummy dinners with family and friends.

Today our challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges is to create a project that is not a card.  It could be a layout, an ATC, a bookmark, altered project, the ideas are limitless.

Lately, thanks to Swap-bot.com, I have been making a lot of ATC’s and altered envelopes (or Mail Art as the group calls them).  Today I am sharing a mail art with the theme of Paris/French.

I created this envelope with my envelope maker first of all.  It’s 5×7.  I then stamped some french script from hero arts all over the inside and out.  I then had some other french stamps from Inque Boutique that I used to stamp on it and then went through my stash looing for anything with a french feel to it.  I found some die cuts, some France stamps and some swirls.  You can’t see it, but on the back is a big postcard of Paris 🙂  I have been to Paris and absolutely love it.  I hope to go back again one day.

I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of my team has created and also to play along with us.
