I just LOVE this stamp set!  The first thing that came to mind was to use it for anniversary cards because I make quite a few of those each year but I haven’t made it that far yet.  Right now I am focusing on my layouts so that’s what I created.  I made a heart border along the bottom of my page.  My decorative hearts are dimensional elements sponged with pink ink and then I used the heart stamp on top in chocolate ink to create a pattern.  I stamped the title 3 times to make the image darker and stand out on the patterned paper.  I really struggled with the embellishments for this page, not sure why.  In the end, I’m not in love with it but satisfied.  I took that last picture as a closeup of the title area on my layout but after uploading it I can see that it would make a great card so there’s another idea for you!

Now hop on over to Wendy Fording’s Blog for your next stop!

Carousel Inn & Suites Layout

Products used: DCWV papers, CTMH White Daisy RicRac, and CTMH Giggle Alphabet stamp set.

When we went to Disneyland we stayed at Carousel Inn & Suites.  It was a pleasant place just across from the entrance to the park.  The kids loved the Disney theme of our family suite and the fact that they had their own room with bunkbeds – just like at home!

Products used: DCWV The Spring II Mat Stacks, K&Company Rub-on Magic, CTMH Liquid Glass, CTMH White Daisy Ricrac, unknown snaps and vellum Thank You sticker.

I started off using the Sunday sketch at 365 cards and this is what I ended up with.  I wanted stitching around the edges but didn’t have the right thread.  Then I started handstitching and that was just too much work!  So I ended up with piercing around the border and snaps in the corners (to cover up where I started stitching. :-)  I was originally thinking to use pop dots on the flowers but the liquid glass added the dimension that I wanted.
