Welcome to "LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT BLOG HOP!"
If you arrived here from THE SCRAPBOOKING QUEEN, you are on the right track!
If not, CLICK HERE to start the HOP at the BEGINNING!
For my project, I made a desk or table-top Mini Accordion Album.
I used cardstock GORGEOUS papers from DCWV The Vintage Collage Stack.
Heart and LOTS OF LOVE from Cricut Cartridge BIRTHDAY BASH on page 49 cut @3 3/4" using Recollections Color Core Papers.
SMILE and Lips also from BIRTHDAY BASH on page 28 cut @ 2 1/2" and again at 3" using same Recollections Color Core Papers.
Numbers all cut @ 2 1/2" and with Shadow feature
Number 1 page 21
Number 4 page 24
Number 3 page 23
Number 7 page 27
Here's a "scanned" view for more details:
Here is a silly picture of me and my husband, Tom, on Halloween 1988
Here is my favorite picture of us in Alaska 2010
And here is one of our wedding pictures, August 23, 1986

OMG Janis. I LOVE your project. I have been wanting to do a table top mini for a long time. I totally have to lift this. I think this is something so sweet and special to have out and close by. It is a reminder everyday of why you love the person. Can you just tell me how you got the other stuff on there. Did you use the computer to type the text out? Also where did you get that adorable heart with the arrow going through it? Sorry if I am being a pain..if you have time shoot me an e-mail....:) Thanks for sharing such a great project, I am totally inspired!ReplyDelete
