Wplus9 Dec./Jan. Release: Group Post

Sunday, December 4, 2011

You made it!  Today is the fifth and final day of Wplus9 Design's December/January Release, and it just so happens to be Group Post day over at the Design Blog.  So, please be sure to check it out!  With that said, I've got one more project, boasting two of this month's releases, as well as their coordinating die, for you all, today.  Enjoy!
I started this layout by stamping a mix of sentiments, from Love You More, in Tempting Turquoise ink, on a piece of distressed, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, Whisper White cardstock; framing it with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock; machine stitching, with black-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges; and adhering it near the bottom left corner of my red, distressed, base page.
I then layered a couple strips of color-coordinating, patterned papers, anchored with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches, as well as a length of scalloped lace, before adhering my pictures.
A vintage, ice cream tab was tucked under the far left pics and served as the foundation for my red, framed, journaling card, upon which I wrote, We just {heart} our Valentine's Day tradition of dinner @ Red Robin.  They always take such good care of us.  It was further dressed up with a white, crochet flower, backed with a trio of hemp twine bows; anchored with a red, polka dot, epoxy brad; and flanked with a stamped, in Basic Black ink, on Whisper White cardstock, banner, from Heartfelt Mix, which I cut in half and used as ribbons.
The heart banner was created by stamping a variety of heart images, from Heartfelt Mix, in Real Red, Garden Green, and Daffodil Delight inks, on Whisper White cardstock die cut, using the Hearts & Clouds die, hearts.  They were then adhered, with foam tape, hanging below the stamped, in Basic Black ink, layered line from the same stamp set and anchored with mini clothespins.
A black and red, polka dot, photo corner, as well as a mini label, which serves as the location for my February 14, '10 date, round out the bulk of the design...
and turn our attention to the top right corner of the page, where I stamped, in Basic Black ink, lots of sentiments, from both Love You More and Heartfelt Mix, down the edge of the paper; trimmed them, down their right side, with a punched strip of green, plaid, patterned paper, as well as a portion of a kraft mini tag, laced with hemp twine; anchored both with black-threaded, straight stitches; and dressed everything up with a floral, Bingo marker; a green button, laced with hemp twine; and a white, flower, sticker embellishment, to complete the look.
Okay, ya'll!  You saw them, in their entirety, yesterday, on the Wplus9 Design Blog, but here they are once again.
