Hello Beautiful Friends,
I was not planning to make my sons classroom Valentines this year but when I asked him if we could buy them he was not with the program. Well, I was looking through a scrapbooking magazine and I got an idea for something that was not too hard - I showed him the picture and he liked them so off to work I went.
I used my Imagine and the new cartridge Notebook Doodles and printed out some paper. Well, this is the first time I have used my Imagine for this and it was EASY. Why do I get so scared to try these new things? I have to have all the 'NEW' cartridges, machines and such and then they just sit there like a prized collection when they should be used. Well, that is a goal for this year -- USE MORE -- BUY LESS!!
I also used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the shape of the Valentine and the Bump In the Night cartridge for my little creature. I used a 5x7 cuttlebug folder to add dimension to the creature, pop dots to adhere him and of course a GIANT google eye. I used 2 different stamps for the back of the Valentine. The Let's Monster Mash saying is from Pink by Design A Haunting We Will go set, the second set I used was from Recollections called Celebrate Spring.
Well, my son loved them so I am glad that I did make them for him.
Blessings All - I am hoping to work on some layouts today,
