On to a more light-hearted subject, welcome back to another Just Us Girls challenge! This week I'm hosting a color challenge and I selected what I believe to be a fantastic, albeit typical, Valentine's Day palette:
Here's what I came up with using a really fab heart cut file...keep an eye on the My Time Made Easy TM LLC release on 1 Feb for more about that :] I simply resized the heart in SCAL to a 1/4 inch smaller than what I cut out of my Pretty Printables Fluttering-by definition paper and positioned it using the SCAL software precisely where I wanted it on my burgundy cs. I have to say it again...THANK YOU Canda (from candacraft.com) for your generous offering of the SCAL software to Lauren's DT! I LOVE LOVE LOVE using it!! You have opened a whole new world to me...a world that I'm totally comfortable in. I doubt I'll buy another die cut shape again!
If you have a Cricut and don't use SCAL, GO SEE CANDA at candacraft.com! You will NOT regret it! She has the best prices around and the cut files you can buy online are soooo much cheaper than the die cut shapes you can buy at the store. Oh, and storage? No cluttering your craft space...keep those babies on your computer!
I distressed and sponged the inner and outer edges of the definition panel (though you can't really see it in the photo), adhered to my card and did a little faux stitching. I added lots of pretty primas and fab brads and stamped one of the All A Flutter Sentiments inside the heart window on blush cs using London Fog Memento ink.
Pretty simple when all was said and done. I staged it on an awesome, vintage bench I picked up at Michaels today! You should see the spring stock they put out! OMG...I was in love with everything! Like most of you, I was ready for something other than Christmas!
We sure hope you can play along with us this week! I'm so looking forward to the amazing creations that come in. Be sure to link your post using Mr. Linky over at JUGS and use keyword JUGS16 in any online galleries.
