Love is in the air!

After a small commercial break we are pleased to be back on track with some yummy loved up inspiration from the Design Team…

We LOVE what Mireille has done with goodies in her box, thinking outside of the box is always great! You are so creative Mireille! We only wish those dungarees came in XXL!!!

FeltTim Holtz Grungeboard heartWing
Stamps: Heidi Swapp
Iron On words: Heidi Swapp
Floss: DMC

To create:
Using felt from my local craft store I traced around the Tim Holtz grunge board heart and then cut it out. I then stamped on to the pink felt using the Heidi Swapp Wings Stamps. Stitched it all together (which did take me 4 hours – I wonder how long it takes Lucy to create those FAB aprons!) I then finished it off using a Heidi Swapp iron on transfer that said I love you.
Mirielle now has one VERY happy daughter!!

Loved up project number two is a 'Fancy' layout by Jessica – what a beautiful colour mix!

Paper: Fancy Pants Kewl "Sublime"
Paisley Chipboard: Fancy Pants
Journaling Paper: Making Memories Ledger Sheets
Bubble Wrap
Heart Chipboard: Heidi Swapp
Letter Stickers: Love, Elsie "Roxie"
Buttons: Making Memories Vintage Hip "Gracen"
Felt: Queen & Co. Pink Scroll
Paint: Making Memories Acrylics in black and red.
Glaze: Making Memories Specialty Glitter Glaze
Glitter: Ranger Stickles in "Candy Cane"
Ribbon: Fancy Pants Kewl, Misc.
Photo Corner: Heidi Swapp
Bling: Heidi Swapp
Ink: Ranger Inks, "Black Soot"
White Paint Pen
Black Pen: Marvy Uchida
Embroidery Floss

To create:
First, paint a small piece of bubble wrap in red (2 coats). Paint the paisley chipboard black. Once the black has dried, add the specialty glitter glaze (2 coats). Then decorate with the red stickles. While these pieces dry, cut circles in varying sizes from the Sublime paper. Ink along all the edges of circles, journaling paper and layout with "Black Soot." Position journaling sheet in the middle of the layout and trace around the outside. Set aside. Using the lines as a guide, begin layering the circles to form a border. Put journaling sheet back in its original position and adhere on top of the circles. Use a white pen to trace around the outside of the border and add little circle doodles around the perimeter. Place your photo on the layout and add the bling embellished photo corners. Once the paint on your bubble wrap has dried, flip it over to the back (flat) side. Here you will trace your chipboard heart twice, so you have two uniform hearts. Cut out, adhere to the middle of the journaling sheet, and trace around the heart with a black pen to hide any original tracing marks that might remain. Add your sentiments with the letter stickers and make a quick photo corner using the Fancy Pants ribbon. Run ribbon through your large paisley chipboard, tie it at the bottom, and place in at the top left corner of your layout. Adhere the bottom paisley chipboard to the bottom right. Use embroidery floss in black in the other two corners as an embellishment to help bring the eye around the whole layout. Use pink embroidery floss to mimic the circles and add more dimension. Cut some scrolls from the felt and add it to the layout. Last, add the Vintage buttons in the middle of random circles.
