Serenity & Love

Happy Friday, everyone!! I will have to keep this a bit short, as the kids are home from school early today, because the teachers are working on report cards.

Here are a couple of projects I've worked on recently. I haven't really had much time to blog lately, so I'm just posting these together.

I've loved this little Serenity Now set as soon as I saw it, and only now... have set it to ink (for shame). Anyhow...this is paper pieced, and the patterned paper is Urban Prairie from BasicGrey.

Stamps: Serenity Now (My Favorite Things)
Card Stock: Blue Bayou, Aqua Mist (PTI), Neenah Solar White, Urban Prairie (BasicGrey)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Blue Bayou, Copic markers
Accessories: Corner Rounder punch, Rectangle & Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities, Dew Drops & Crystal Effects, Blue Bayou Double Stitched ribbon, Scotch Foam Tape


I've had these heart tins (from PTI) for a very long time
,
and I noticed that the largest heart image from So Much Love (Lizzie Anne Designs) fit almost perfectly to the size of the lid. I stamped with my Whisper White Craft ink, and added the little heart A Muse Twinkle stickers. The patterned paper around the edge is from the PTI Pink Patterns Collection, and I tied some 7/8 inch organdy ribbon for added elegance. I wish I had some premium chocolates to put inside, but kisses will have to do (all I have on hand).


Open
Stamps: So Much Love (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Berry Sorbet, Pink Patterns Collection (both PTI)
Ink: Whisper White Craft
Accessories: heart tin (from PTI), Scor-Tape, Tombo Multi Glue, White grosgrain ribbon, 7/8 inch White Organdy ribbon (retired SU), A Muse Mini Heart Twinkle Stickers

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have fun all of you CHA bound girls. I can't wait to catch up with the latest!! Have a great weekend!!

Fabulous projects! I love the Blue Bayou with Urban Prairie. I never thought of that combo, but the colors are really perfect together. The heart tin is just to die for! Wow! The stamp did fit beautifully on the lid. It looks like they were made for each other. How gorgeous!
