Pink and Black

Most people don't think of pink and black as colors for Valentine's day but I love the combo.  I am using paper from BoBunny, the heart is the scrap from the heart die (memory box) that I used on my first card of the month-love that you can use the leftovers! I ran the white panel through my cuttlebug with the Hero Arts Die (swirls).  Added some pretty black lace and tule for a bow.  The little bobbles in the corners are Dew Drops.  All supplies can be found at A Scrap-N-Place.

Just a FEW of our "FABULOUS" finds at CHA!!



THIS ... was our view each day when we arrived at CHA! Just beautiful to walk down the sidewalk leading to the main entrance to CHA!

'Hello' and I'm feeling 'Negative'

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink with my first post of 2014 - thanks once again Terri for allowing me to 'play' over here.  I actually have two projects to show you today, one kind of 'grew' from the other - you'll see what I mean.

My first project is a 'Hello' card made using paper from the Authentique "Irresistible' line.

I love the combination of black, white and red, it's just classical.  Here is a list of products I used (available at A Scrap N Place)

Red  & Black card stock
White designer card stock - Authentique Irresisitible -  'Written'
Black designer card stock - Authentique Irresisitible - 'Passion'
Memory Box Die - Sofia Heart
Crystal gems
'Hello' sentiment stamp (Stampin' Up)

Here is a close-up, where you can see the 'bling' a little better.

Now I promised you 2 projects, and this second one grew out of the card after I had cut the hearts out.  The negative piece (the bit we usually throw away) just looked too pretty not to use, so here is what I came up with.

How simple and cute are those?  I hope you will pop over to my blog to take a look at some close up photos of these tags.

See you next time.
