Wplus9 Dec./Jan. Release: Day 4

Saturday, December 3, 2011

Woohoo!  Today's Reveal Day over at the Wplus9 Design Blog, and you don't want to miss it!  But if you haven't been there yet, hang tight just a minute, while I show you that layout I promised in yesterday's Day 3 post.
I started this layout by adhering a couple of patterned, paper squares to the distressed, patterned, paper base page and machine stitching, with black-threaded, straight stitches, running over onto the base page itself, around their edges.  After adhering pictures, I tucked the original Valentine, that my son is making in the photographs, to their top left corner and stamped, in Basic Black ink, the "LOVE notes" title, which had a heart, epoxy brad driven through the "O".  The "LOVE" comes from Love You More, and "notes" comes from A Pocketful: Valentine.
I then stamped a branch, from Love Birds, in Real Red ink, on a Whisper White, cardstock die cut, using the Love Birds die; glittered it; and tucked it behind the envelopes image, from A Pocketful: Valentine, which was stamped, in Basic Black ink, on a red, polka dot, patterned paper; hand cut out; and adhered, with foam tape, to the bottom photograph's left side.
Another branch, prepared in the same way as above, was tucked behind a black and white, photograph, journaling card; a "FEB" Bingo card; and a notebook, patterned, paper, journaling card, which was created by stamping the numbered lines image, from Class Act, in Basic Black ink, over it and filling it in with, You just loved making these fun Valentines for your cousins and friends and were proud as a peacock to mail them off.  Feb. 10, 2010, all of which were pinned together with a silver paperclip.  A die cut, using the Love Notes die, from black, polka dot, patterned paper, envelope; a stamped, in Real Red ink, on a distressed, silver-rimmed tag, "{heart} you tons" subtitle, from Love Birds, which was also laced with hemp twine and embellished with a red, gingham ribbon, tied in a bow...
and a Valentine, chipboard button, anchored with hemp twine, round out the cluster.
A punched, from dictionary, patterned paper, photo corner, completes the bulk of the design.
I then adhered a length of red, stripe ribbon near the top right corner of the base page and dressed it up with two, Whisper White, cardstock, cloud die cuts, using the Hearts & Clouds die, as well as a red button, laced with hemp twine.
Now, off you go to see what the rest of the team has whipped up.  And please don't forget to peek back in, tomorrow, for one final day of us all showing off what Wplus9 Design has in store, for you, for Christmas and 2012.  Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for all the love you've shown me throughout this release!  It just means so much, to me, to have you all stop by!  Hugs!

That background paper really intrigues me, Jinny. It has such a lovely worn vintage feel, and works well with the hearts and red papers. Beautiful!
