Casper Silvermist Crush

Happy Valentine's Day!!  We have some fabulous Valentine/Party images being released at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today that you'll want to check out!  You can click HERE to see them in the store or click HERE to see all the gorgeous inspiration the DT has created today... if you want my opinion, you should lick on both, of course!  :D   I wasn't able to make a card with one of the new images but I have an equally appropriate one to share today instead....

This project uses Casper Silvermist Crush from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which is an exclusive image drawn by Pollycraft!  Plus I have added a variety of chippies from Make it Crafty - the Ornate Corners on the four corners and the Leaf Branches were painted with gold before adding them to the mix.  Then the flowers and rub-on are from Stampin' Up and you should be able to spot stitching on almost all my projects by now.  :D  Love that little sewing machine!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you've enjoyed this little romantic inspiration.  :D  I'm off to create some secrete Valentines to add to my daughters' mailbox and hope your having equally as much fun!  Now you can head on over to the next blog and check out all the fabulous creations from the DT at the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog!  Ciao!

Angelica's Heart Socks

It's getting close to Valentine's Day but I still have plenty of pink and romantic projects to post so looks like we'll be celebrating throughout the month... and since pink and brown are my favorite colors, it might feel like throughout the year too.  LOL  And that sounds like a good excuse for chocolate all year long too.  :D

I've ended up using a hodgepodge of items on this project but the main features are as follows...

Angelica's Heart Socks from Inky Impressions

Sitting Cute from The Greeting Farm

Dragonflies and Butterfly Swirls chippes from Make it Crafty

Protractor from Jenni Bowlin

I've had both of these stamps in my stash for a while but had forgotten about them.  However, lately my daughter has been having fun rummaging through the stash and together we've found all sorts of forgotten stamps to use together.  :D   Thanks for coming by and I hope you've enjoyed this little Valentine inspiration!  *Hugs

Jude Valentine

It's been a long time since I've created a journal page and these three characters came together perfectly for the scene!  They're part of the Jude Valentine release from Simply B Stamps and I thought made a great story.  Now tell me, with of the two girls do you think is the most mischievous and instigator of this Valentine crime scene?  LOL

The three images, from left to right, are Ariel Cupid, Jude's Heart and Brittany's Bag of Valentines from Simply B Stamps.  Then I also used a ribbon slide chippie from Make it Crafty called Fancy Ribbon Sliders. And I just found a fun way to use those sliders by cutting them in half and using them as tags sticking out from behind a layer - it looks awesome!  I used one HERE on my Frenchie Claudine project.

I have forgotten how fun it is to create pages in my journal and how much the extra space gives way for background, stories and trying new techniques.  See all those blank pages... yes, I will have to do that again.  ;D  I would like to enter this into the Simply Challenged Challenges "Anything Goes" themed challenge.
