Hey Baby, It's Almost Valentine's Day
Well, the weekend went by extremely fast, but this is the week I get to finally slow down and come up for air. Not much planned except for working a couple of days and Eric and I are planning a date night to IKEA this Friday evening since it's my BIRTHDAY!--woOHOooOO! I think in the meantime, I'll do a little crafting and baking--I bought some chocolate chips yesterday and they are dying to be cookies, I just know it!
January 'Fetti Fans class last Wednesday at The Little Blue House and thought I'd share a couple of the cards we made using some great stuff from REVERSE CONFETTI.
For some weird reason, I tend to stick to perpetually using white for my cardbases. Why, I don't know, but this time I was determined to break out of that rut. I've been using a bunch of Bazzill's Card Shoppe cardstock from The Little Blue House lately for my classes (at Tracy's urging, and now I LOVE it) and I am in love with this deep red, so I chose to start there.
HERE'S THE STORY stamp set. Everything else "fun" are from Confetti Cuts--HEART LOVE and STRAIGHT STRIPES PRETTY PANELS (I am in love with layering these!), CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS and the fun little ARROW that I cut apart to "elongate" underneath the panels.
With my other card, I went back to a traditional white cardbase, but cut white scallop borders from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP Confetti Cuts Die and glued them to my first layer for a little frame all the way around my card.
I used the LOVE BLOOMS stamps and Confetti Cuts for the flowers, popped them up onto the TAG ME TOO tag, and added some sparkle using a clear Wink of Stella pen. The little heart peeking out from behind the flower at the top is from the favorite--LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set. I couldn't live without that one!
'Fetti Fans Card Classes, the next one is going to be FEBRUARY 17th from 10-1 or 6-9 for $30--samples coming soon (probably 4-5 cards of the generic everyday variety this time). Signups are happening now! Call the LBH at 817-431-7930 to reserve your spot, or just stop by and see us.
Ok, so today is the FULL REVEAL for our latest Front Porch Kit from The Little Blue House--The Greatest of These is Love. I'm sharing all my projects on this post HERE.
