I know Valentine's Day has come and gone but I had wanted to share these ideas with you. I had wanted to use doilies when making Valentine's cards for my two Granddaughters and thought they'd look cute with the little monkey's from the C.C. Design Set - Monkey Love .
Solving A Problem: You know how you look at a word stamp that you want to use on your card and it just won't fit right - what you can do is stamp the words - cut them apart and adhere them to a tag - that's what I've done on these two cards.
Stamps: C.C. Designs - Monkey Love
Paper: Daisy D's Maybe Baby (Buy It!), Stampin' Up! Ruby Red and Barely Banana
Ink: Black StazOn, White Gel Pen, Black Marker
Misc: Doiley, Spellbinder Templates, Heidi Swapp Large Flowers (Buy It!), Stampin' Up! Ribbon and Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Martha Stewart Tag Punch, Close To My Heart Eyelet and Waxy Flax (Buy It!) , Making Memories Jumbo Brads.
THIS WAS FUNNY: Remember how I said I wanted to use doiles - so yesterday I get my March Issue of Creating Keepsakes and what's on the front cover but a large doiley - they used it as a matting for a photo - go figure!! And for the journaling they had cut the words apart and mounted them in a punched circle/scallop matting.
If you love scrapbooking idea books - your going to love the newly released Close To My Heart Reflections - they have a very nice ad on the back cover of the Creating Keepsakes Magazine. The Close To My Heart How-To Scrapbooking Program Books just don't have photos they have measurements, placement keys, artwork and are filled with technique how-to's. Close To My Heart has three Scrapbook Program Books - and I have to say if your a scrapper these are all must have's! The newest is Relections (Buy It!), Imagine (Buy It!) and the first book - Cherish (Buy it!) - I promise you wouldn't be dissapointed.
If you have any of the Close To My Heart Scrapbook Program Books PLEASE leave a comment and share what it is you love about them - THANKS!!!
