A B C's of Love layout

It's Friday and I am back at work after two day of being shut up due to strep! I hate being sick.  Not back to 100% but I have to get back to work!

I have a fun single page layout to share with you today.
The letters are from K&Company as are the papers used along the side.
As I arranged the letters I wanted to hide a message of sorts--so I used pop dots on the I, Love, U so that it stood out .
I used a distressing tool on the paper edges to give the pink and red papers a bit more of an edge.  I like how these papers with the rough edge and a black and white photo will tie together!  The photo could be holding hands, a kiss, the back of to heads a hug in shadow--the possibilities are endless.
So I used the Art Philosophy cartridge and the stamp set I gave away last week for the tickets.  The February ticket was heat embossed with ruby embossing powder and edged in black.  The journal ticket I used my own hand writing  and it says, "26 letter is all I have to tell you how much I love you!"

Leave the comments to ensure you get the best chance to win this weeks stamp giveaway.  Today there were two posts here on ScrapGuy and my post over at Pink By Design and those comments count as well!  Winner will be announced on Sunday along with a guide for the week.

Mustache-ulations card with Pink by Design

So here is a project for today and I have another for Thursday and Friday!!  so make sure to comment on each post for your chance to win this weeks CTMH stamp set Jubilation (D1457)

This was a super simple card and out of my comfort zone.  I have never just stamped a card but when I say the Mustaches set from Pink By Design I knew this was going to be one of the first cards I made.
I used the old standard Roy G Biv to get my color order, and I simply stamped on a white A2 card.
On the inside I used a punch from Fiskers (which I think I use way more than any other punch I own) and stamped the sentiment in blue.  Super Simple!!!

Come back on Thursday for another project!

2012 Sketch Calendar

Morning everyone--as you can see the blog got a face lift over night.  With help from The Cutest Blog On The Block I now have a brighter  fun blog backdrop that is easy to read and have a few of my fav things.
Orange and Grey are two of my most worn and purchased colors, and a great top note header and blog button.  Make sure you pick up the new button to the right--this will get you extra entries in the BIG February give aways.
Now TCBOTB (the cutest blog on the block) has back grounds you can get for free but they also offer a full service design and install.  I did the second as I am not computer savvy and the whole code thing I get lost on!
Let me know what you think.
I am home sick today with strep so I will be posting a project in a few hours so you can get even more chances to win the stamp set--I will also let you know which stamp set it is!

I also want you to check out the 2012 Sketch Calendar from Scrapbook & Cards Today.  It is a great way to get at least 12 layouts done in a year.  It has 26 NEW sketches so you could get one layout every two weeks! This is perfect or the beginner to the advanced scrapbooker!

You can check it out here.  I bought mine at my LSS right after Christmas.
Make it a great one.

Blog Candy Winner.............

Hello everyone--so a funny thing happened last week.  I was in NYC for market and had done all the posts and pictures, planned them to go live, and was all set to have videos and projects for you all last week.  Well when I am in Market, I have little to no time to check my personal email let alone blog so it was brough to my attention that no posts had gone live.  So I looked into this and being the smart one I am, I did the posts last year over the christmas holidays and the year was 2011 not 2012.  Really, sometimes I amaze myself with how daft I can be! 

So here is the winner of the Blog Candy

Hey, glad you are back after a few weeks off. Love the thought of more layouts, but if you want another idea. I think a lot of us would like a male perspective on male cards they are so hard to come up with. Please help us out:)
