Love Forever-SASL DT Project

Hello Krafters!

Today’s project was lifted by a lady who goes by Scrapalot Shelley! You can see her project here. The funny thing is, I found an old picture of my husband and I from many moons ago, I knew her project was going to be my inspiration for scrapping this photo.

The pattern paper is Echo Parks Yours Truly. The burlap pattern is from Prima’s Lyric collection. I love the combos of red, blacks and grays. I used the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge for the title and various cartridges for the hearts. I framed the photo with one of the hearts. I added a little Wink of Stella to the title and Viva Decor Pens (red) for texture to the hearts. 

After completing the layout, I felt the photo was not the focus of the layout and the title took over the layout. I decided to add the arrow (Going Places Cricut cartridge) to bring attention back to the photo…hey it is supposed to be the star of a layout right?

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Don't forget to stop by soon to see what SASL has to offer! Kenya~

True Love-She's A Sassy Lady DT Project

Happy Sizzling July Krafty People!

It’s my day over at She’s A Sassy Lady! I had so many 4th of July plans to share BUT my plans crumbled. Love can bring metaphoric fireworks right? I know, kind of a stretch! Well, I have an anniversary card to share today!

My pastors celebrated 16 years of marriage. I would say some kind of fireworks had to be ignited…at least sparklers? If you knew them, you would understand the love and affection they share with each other.

Ok, enough with puns, on to the project! I used Design Space to design the card. I used the Sweethearts and Beyond Birthdays cartridges. I selected the images I desired and imported them onto the virtual mat. I made the frame by inserting a shape (square) and resizing it into a rectangle. Once  I was satisfied with the size, I duplicated the shape, aligned it and sliced the shape. 

Then I took the word “Love” and duplicated that twice and lined it up inside the frame. Then I added “True love” to the bottom and welded the words and shape together. After I was happy with the design, I cut them out using the Bo Bunny Crush collection and solid white Neenah white card stock. The little hearts were on the side and cut later. I also cut the “L” for love in a solid black. I later added “16” to represent the number of years of marriage. 

Once everything was cut out, I layered the pattern paper on the card stock for stability. I added the transparency to build a shaker card (last minute decision). I used the hearts (which were going to be added to the front) as the confetti and added some sequins to the inside. I also have the “16” peaking out at the bottom. For a finishing touch and shimmer, I added a little Wink of Stella to the “True Love”. 

Here is the finished card:
