It is all about Love ...

It was a busy week at work. Last night, I came home to hubby having dinner on the table. I was so exhausted that I was in bed by 7. No surprise that I was up at 430 this morning. All was quiet in the house and I had some crafting time. Love the new Jilibean Soup - Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup collection and used two of the yummy papers from the collection, along with black, white and Kraft card stock. I also used Crate Paper Love Notes chipboard pieces {which I LOVE} to my layout.

The theme was inspired by Colorful Creations: It is all about Love challenge. My layout is based on Creative Scrappers sketch 261

Using my Cricut I cut out hearts on Kraft card stock and stamped them with various background stamps. 

Clustered hearts and arrows everywhere. Framing my favorite picture from Barb Weir Photography.

Love these tickets which I've popped up.

More layered hearts.

Love matting and matted all elements and thought the black card stock would help pop up the pictures and elements as I used a lot of patterned paper.

Do you want to build a snowman

The kids and I love the new Disney Movie Frozen. I think it is safe to say we've watched it every weekend. We love the songs! Here in Ontario we have had a lot of snow and really cold days. I decided to play with Fancy Pants Timbergrove. I love the colors! They remind me of hot chocolate and building a snowman from when I was a child. The pictures are from the fabulous Barb Weir Photography

Using my cricut I cut out various sizes of flags and snowflakes. 

I layered and popped the flags. Added gems in the snowflakes

Inked and distressed with Tim Holtz inks. 

The plan was to lightly emboss with some pears and well that didn't work out. So I know have a snow effect on the page. 

Thank you for stopping by
