Truly, Madly, Deeply....In LoVe :)

Yep, it's that time again....we are celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary in a few weeks, and every year I like to do a little l/o just for us.  So how perfect that I got all my Webster's Pages 'In Love' design team goodies a couple of days ago!!  I LOVE this collection, such pretty papers and the embellishments (sigh, oh those cameos!)   I came up with the page design after playing with the Websters Pages digi stuff.  I was making little 'signature' designs (see the bottom of my post)...and I was kinda fond of the design I came up with for my signature line and used the design for this page!..... 
I was also so happy to have a chance to use one of the newest Dusty Attic chippies on this page.  Isn't that Heart Flourish chipboard lovely?  The finish I gave it was pretty simple.  Just a coating of white Gesso, a touch of pink chalk ink and a coating of Glossy Accents. (close-up above) 

TIP:  I've mentioned this one before, but in case anyone missed it.  I always love to save the baking from my ornate style stickers.  This is a piece from a Prima felt strip.  I just lay the piece on my page and then use a make-up sponge to dabb over it with some pink chalk ink. 
When you lift off the piece of paper, this is the left behind result. (below)  The backing piece has a waxy/shiney finish on one side that wipes off the ink nicely, so you can use the piece over and over. 
While I had out my bits and pieces of  the 'In Love' collection, I decided to make up a couple of cards too!  I have some Weddings and Wedding Showers coming up so I thought these would be perfect for some cardmaking! 
The chipboard fram here is another yummy new piece by Dusty Attic (these are a really nice size for cardmaking!)  ATC Frame Set #1 
  Websters Pages has something new out that they call 'Perfect Motifs" ....you know all those beautiful images we like to cut out from the Websters Papers? Butterflies, dressforms, hearts & blooms?  Yep! they now make this wonderful paper pad just filled with these images, just made for cutting out!  I did this with the little dressform I added to the card, as well as the butterflies. 

And here is one more card I made, again using the In Love collection papers, mini pade papers and the Journaling cards! 

Well, I'm off to bake for my nephew (and his fiance's) bridal shower (Jack & Jill) this weekend.  Hmmm, now which card shall I use this weekend? :)
