♥Sweetheart layout♥

♥Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all! ♥
Today's Layout was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon!
Also I do have another update on my surgery, it went well on Thursday, and my doctor was able to close up my wound and he also took out the hardware on the left side of my left ankle. Of course im trying to keep my pain under control with meds and lots of ice. 
♥Now on to my Layout♥
I was super excited to be able to make this layout today, since i really havent wanted to craft much lately, but for some reason yesterday i wanted to make flowers in BED.....LOL I did, I made all these beautiful Sweetheart Flowers with The Scrapping Cottage "SweetHeart Flowers" Cottage Cutz,in bed and then  put them together in bed as well.....LOL
 LOVE this die as there are many different ways to create flowers. I should have 2 video's coming soon, well this month soon.... :)

I was going to share a photo album I had started prior to my surgery on thursday,which by the way went well from what my hubby said. :) Im still in pain, but im sure that will go away soon.
♥So instead i made flowers in bed and then did my layout. Hubby took the pictures for me, thank you Jerry!!!♥ 
I love the look of the leaves wrapped around the flowers , its super easy to do, and gives my paper flowers some leaves:)


So I used 3 ribbons for the border across my page, and then I used the green leaves for around my handmade paper flowers♥♥♥Video coming soon♥♥♥
♥Supplies Used♥
Satin Pink Ribbon tied into knots
My SWEETHEART flowers are cut out with Cottage Cutz Sweetheart flower cottage cutz, I Love making my own paper flowers. and in the centers of all my flowers is some martha stewart glitter that i bought about 4 years back. 
Design paper is MyLittle Shoebox
Other challenges:
Fairy Fun Fridays/Anything but a card
Lily Pad/Pattern Paper

♥♥Vintage Valentine♥♥

Hello everyone today I wanted to share my ♥Victorian Valentine Card♥ made for The Scrapping Cottage using all Valentine's Cottage Cutz.
♥First I used the Filigree Hearts( the double hearts) 2 of them for behind my tag. I distressed all my pieces using tim holtz tea ink and a duster. I ♥ using the duster to dust and distress my ink, its super easy to do, much easier than dabbing. 

♥ The tag was cut using the Love Tag Set 4 x 6 and my Key was cut using the Vintage Key cottage Cutz and the stamp that comes with it.

♥The little Flowers were all layered and they came from the Whimsy Bird and Cage Cottage Cutz.

♥♥♥I added pearls to the flowers,bird cage and the corners of my card.



♥♥♥Cottage Cutz Die's Used♥♥♥


I used seam binding from♥♥ Really Reasonable Ribbon♥♥ in PINK
and i just took one piece from the edge of it and pulled on it to scrunch it so its gathered up. I tied it to the bird cage and the key.
Next I made a bow and then gathered the ends. I glued it to a feather, and then added a button to the center of my bow.





♥♥♥Thank you for looking and have a lovely day♥♥♥
Hugs to all,
Cheryl
