You Are Loved

This card is the M&T (make-&-take) I brought for our January American Ink demo meeting this past weekend.  The Spring catalog is in full bloom, and I have fallen in love with several things already.  You can order products in this catalog until May 31, 2013.  Start making your list now, and when you're ready to order, visit my Online Store.
I started with Candlelight Christmas DSP...I know Christmas is over, but see how versatile our products are!  The colors were perfect for Valentine's Day as well.  My favorite Valentine's Day stamp set is You Are Loved, and I used the Ovals Collection framelits for the main design and the layer behind it.  The Designer Builder brad from the Spring catalog fit perfectly with the heart from Lovely Little Labels.  I have to confess I took the brad 'arms' off of the Designer Brad with my pliers.  I layered the brad on Basic Black cardstock, and it was easier for me to ensure it was positioned exactly where I wanted it without the brad arms.  I'm not the only person who has ever done that, right?

  1. It's alive! It's so good to see a new blog post here. Lovely card. I also pulled the legs off of one of these brads. They're light and it makes it easy to place it anywhere when there are no legs to worry about!
