Happy Weekend!


Wow...last week really got away from me!

Check out the Scrapbook Trends and Cards gallery here. :):):) This card was one that I created for a challenge over at ScrapAttack Scrapbooking for the crop last weekend.

I used the NEW Little Yellow Bicycle Twig Line! I am in love love love with it. The colors are gorgeous and LYB always has the best and most complete lines out there. The fabric tags...feathers...gorgeous! So the first projects I created with Twig were these cards. The challenge was to cut out a bunch of hearts (I used my Cuttlebug b/c I had some dies that were all different shaped hearts and worked perfectly) and then you punch a hole in the bottom of each one, attach with a brad and then you have these fun flowers.

Then, for the stems, I used a punch and some Prima decorative tape and the embossed it with my Cuttlebug! You know me and my embossing ;) I really like the look of it and tried it with some different tapes and it is way way fun! I have to laugh b/c this tape is like three years old and I finally used it in a decorative fashion.





Cardstock on this card is Whitewash from Core'dinations.
