Love is in the air

Love is in the air with Valentine's Day right around the corner.  This romantic couple can help you and your sweetie pie celebrate.


Three of the collage images on today's card are from the Victorian Valentines collage sheet from Altered Pages.  The sentiment image is from the Mini Images Valentines.  I think they all work really well together.  



I started with a red panel of card stock and a gold doily.  I made this one out of a textured gold card stock but any size and color you choose will work very well.  The doily is glued to the center of the card stock and then I layered on the images.  






The heart surrounding the couple in love has a dotted design around the edges.  Perfect for embellishing with a little Stickles glitter glue.  The smaller ornate heart has a ring of flowers around the heart and I added gold Stickles to the center of each little flower.



There is a lot of red going on here so I used some foam adhesive to hold the little plain heart off the page and make it stand out.  Two little strips of gold border stickers add another touch of glitz.



Aren't these little pearl petite flowers cute?  Just the perfect accent for my Valentine card.  The whole panel is mounted on an off-white piece of card stock.



Supplies used:
Victorian Valentines collage sheet
Mini Images Valentines collage sheet
Stickles - your choice of colors
Pearl Petite Classic flowers
Border Design 2 stickers
Adhesives - glue, double sided tape & foam tape

Valentine Salsa

Do you like making collage cards?  There are a lot of different types of collages, but my favorites are when I can take a bunch of unrelated images and make a scene with them.  When I was making this card I jokingly called it "Sally spices up a Tuesday night".  Yeah, I crack myself up.  If you'd like to see the individual collage images that went into making this romantic scene, click here.






Is it me, or does this guy from That's Class look like a young Kenneth Branaugh?

A Christmas Present for a Friend

Is December an odd time to post a Halloween project?  Maybe, but this one has been TOP SECRET since June!!  Now that it has been given to my friend Amy I can finally share it with you, too!  The book itself and most of the pockets came from Heartfelt Creations, but the decorations are from everywhere!
