Puppy Love is Real!

You know I love using bits of Visual Designs by Chris' files to create layouts.  On this one, I used two and then some other mixed in media.  I used the hearts from #CD00654 The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home.  BUT, because I am a frugal scrapper, I was using scraps and didn't get a large enough piece... uggghhh....  so, the heart to the right had the edge cut off.  A popped up punched heart easily fixed that.  Whew!  And added a little texture to the layout.  Then I used the "LOVE" from #CD00690 Love the Arts.  I could not totally ungroup the files to just get the word so I cut it as close to the bottom of the WB screen as possible and then trimmed it out.  Love it!  Puppy is cut using my Quickutz Star alphabet.  "is Real!!" are stickers from Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby).  Bling:  heart and butterfly bling from a gem pack in the $1 bin at Michaels.  A few little gems on the punched heart are Paper studio.  The swirly bling is Prima.  Drew in the butterfly antennaes and wrote Valentine's Day 2010 at the top with a black 01 pen from Prismacolor.  My favorite black pens ever! 
Happy New Year to everyone!

I wanted a way to dress up a gift card so I thought why not make an explosion box? So I made the box, but it was a little plain. Chris's Santa from her QMC was the perfect addition to spruce up the box. I loved him on the card, but he's even cuter in miniature on the top of the box.

The other project uses Chris's Winter Cupcake Wrappers. That file collection can be found here. This set includes four great wrappers. I cut the tree wrapper and backed the trees with green. I rolled up a pair of fuzzy socks and fastened them with a rubber band. To make it look more like a cupcake, I put a small pompom on the top.
