Happy Sunday to everyone! First, I want to announce the winner of my Paper Players blog candy! Random.org chose #26, which is Princess Lisa! Congratulations! And thanks to EVERYONE who participated!!! It was an awesome blog hop!
Now on to the challenge! Today, our hostess is Ann and she has chosen a LOVE theme!! Love is in the Air!
I really struggled with photographing this project, and I still don’t think I have captured its “prettiness”! I wanted to do a horizontal “LOVE” banner, but I don’t have any large alphabet dies, so I thought I would do a little vertical “love” banner with the Lovely Letters alphabet set:
Here’s a closer picture; it just looks washed out, it’s really a nice deep hue:
I hung it on a wreath in my kitchen, but it would look sweet anywhere! I didn’t put a lot of embellishments on it, but I could see where you could go crazy with all kinds of goodies! Maybe I’ll do another one again! This time I topped it with two felt flowers from the Fun Flowers die, a button and antique brad, all atop a bow made from some Very Vanilla seam binding.
The backing squares are Regal Rose and Crumb Cake; the Very Vanilla scallops were cut with the Scallop Squares Duo die; and the DP is Springtime Vintage. The letters were stamped in Soft Suede and overstamped with the medallion image from Artistic Etchings in Crumb Cake. Everything was sponged with Soft Suede for a vintage look. The ribbon & lace were layered underneath. I really enjoyed making this project!
Now let’s see what “love-themed” creation you can come up with! You can see all the designers’ creations at the Paper Players blog! As well, you can see all the winners of last week’s Blog Hop, too! Hope you were one of the lucky ones!
