design team reveal!!

Even though I'm away in California I wanted to be sure that I posted my layouts for this month's design team. I had lots of fun working with some super cute papers from We R Memory Keepers.

We R has come out with lots of stitched papers that are great for those of us who are sewing-challenged. When the papers are stitched by machines there can be a little bit of creasing but that will flatten out, no worries.

I added some bling and the brown heart paper. Gotta have bling for little Anastasia!

I have seen this idea done before on circles and other shapes and thought it would be fun to try. I cut out the heart first then cut random pieces of patterned paper to stick around it.

For the banner I cut out each triangle leaving a bit at the top to fold over the string then pop-dotted each one. I hand cut the birds to hold the ends in their mouths.

This layout is an ode to all the moms whose kids fight and argue constantly and wishing they could just get along!

I added the chipboard hearts that I covered in paper and some chalk. Here's a closeup of the journalling (if you click the pic it's even closer up) so you get the idea.

*tip: I cut out my letters on the Cricut 3 times and glued them together. It's an easy way to get some depth without cutting up teeny tiny pop dots.

Here's my card. Love those little heart stick pins!

There are some sweet Valentines papers in store now.

Thanks for taking a peek and don't forget to check out what the other ladies did over at the TSF gallery
