Pretty Little Studio: Feb. 14th

Thursday, January 30, 2020

Morning, y'all!  With Valentine's Day being only two weeks away, I dug deep into my stash to produce an on-trend treasure honorable of the big day.  It happens to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today and boasts goodies from our Christmas Joy, XOXO, Savannah Dreams, and With All My Heart Collections.  Check it out!
I started this page by adding smudges and splatters of Patina, Aquamarine, and Strawberry Cream Glimmer Mists across the background of the 12" x 12" textured, white, cardstock, base page.  I cannot tell you how much I adore the shimmer and shine in Glimmer Mists, and they're ever so easy to manipulate.  Once that was dry, I also splattered the page with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  I then Cameo-cut the background cut file, which I hand-cut into smaller portions, from the Christmas List 12x12 print and anchored it with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  That set the stage for my photos, which were matted with white cardstock and backed with a couple of prints from the XOXO 8x8 Paper Pack, both of which were anchored with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, as well as a bit from the Wrapping Presents print, stitched in place once again, and two torn scraps from the Savannah Dreams 8x8 Paper Pack.  I also tucked in a snippet of cheesecloth, as well as a bit of a 4" Cambridge Doily, for that texture that you all know I love so much.  The top photo was then embellished with an "i adore you" Love Word Flag Die Cut, laced with Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, and popped up with foam tape.
I dressed up the opposite side of my photos with a Cherish Today 3x4 Pocket Card, topped with that gorgeous Damask Rose Vintage Die Cut, popped up with foam tape and backed with a Forever Hearts Metallic Foil Die Cut.  The "FEB. 14TH" February 2018 Freebie Die Cut serves as my title...
and a couple of Makes Me Smile Die Cuts trail off the pocket card onto the page itself.
Another portion of that same 4" Cambridge Doily used above was adhered against the right side of my page, just above horizontal center, and topped with a couple of hearts, one from the February 2018 Freebie Die-Cuts package and another from the Darling Journaling Die-Cuts package, as well as the "VALENTINE" February 2018 Freebie Die Cut and a "perfection" A Great Day Flag Sticker.
The "LOVE TODAY" Us Flair Button crowns my design.  A trio of hand-cut, from the Roses Clear 8x8 print, blooms, as well as a number of Heart Warming Stickers and a few wood veneer snowflakes from my stash, were scattered throughout the design to complete the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed, friends!
