I’m in love…..

That is, I’m in love with the word ‘love’.
I know it isn’t even Christmas or New Year’s yet but something came over me to make a few love-ly items lately.
I came across a banner not too long ago that I fell in love with and wanted to replicate.
My first ‘love’ creation was this banner.
It has some of the elements of my inspiration.
I love some of the details of it.
Two types of foil paper and embossed letters.
I couldn’t stop there and when I saw some already embellished ‘love’ letters for only $.99 at Target I decided to pick them up to make another banner.  I picked up some silver glittered swirls for $.99 and used them too.
I used some of the same papers, some tags and a set of already embellished letters.
It turned out I made an accordion love sign.
I really like this sign.  I think it might end up in one of my sisters hands this Christmas.
Shh, don’t tell her.
Lot of dimension on this one.
The tags I used on the accordion sign came in a package of five.  I only used four on that sign so I had to make another one to use up the last tag.
I made this sign which will make a great door hanger.
Well, then I still had a smaller accordion folded sheet of paper so I better get out the black glitter letters and a few more tags to make another accordion love sign.
As you can tell, I’m really loving my Scrappers Floss right now.  It make a perfect accent on tags.
  I’m loving these black glittered letters.
I wish there was were doubles of all the letters so I could make another love sign.
Well, maybe I’ve made enough?
As you maybe guessed, I didn’t stop.
I have one more creation to show you.
I made this one to fit into a metal tin that I had from some flowers I bought a while ago.
I simple pearl embellished flower on the outside of the tin with a peek of what is inside.
I know your not surprised to see LOVE.
More papers from the same set I’ve been using.
  I added some mirror paper on the front behind the Bee Mine accent.
I inked the black and white scalloped circle with some pink ink and layered it over a scrunched up, used, fabric softener sheet.
That really is it.
Well, for now at least.
