scrapbooking in 2010 - papertrey style

love songs revisited

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years celebration - whether you were out celebrating with family and friends or spending a quiet evening at home (the second is what we did because of me not feeling well due to a cold.)

The first of the month means that is also time for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month my projects will focus on the Valentine's day holiday that is coming up very soon. Today, the senior team is sharing projects made with Lisa's Love Songs set. One of my favorite things about revisiting these older sets is bring able to use them along with products that didn't exist when they were first released. It really expands the possibilities of my stamp collection!


For my cards that I have to share today, I pulled out my Simple Valentine patterned paper to use with the Love Songs set. Using this patterned paper really puts a new festive spin on the Valentine projects that I created with this set.


One of my favorites in the set is the letters that spell out "love". I used some of the new banner builder dies to make a sweet Valentine banner with Simple Valentine paper and then added the letters on each banner piece.


The "o" is a die cut a heart prints heart with some red glitter added to it. Love how this card turned out!


For this card I used the heart balloon images. Instead of doing the 2 step stamping technique to color in the hearts, I used Simple Valentine paper to paper piece these sweet polka dot balloons. The double ended banner die was the perfect place to put the sentiment for this card.


I added some clear glitter to the balloons for a little extra shimmer and now this card is ready to send off to a special someone!

Make sure to stop by all of the senior team's blogs to see the projects that they have to share: NicholeBetsyDawnLisa, and Mish.
