Love Grows Mini Album ~ Stuck On U Die Cut Challenge - Heart(s) ~ FEATURED over at Little Red Wagon

 
Happy Friday everyone!!!  Today's reveal over at SOUS Die Cut Challenge is "HEARTS".. Now remember, you can use any die cutter or die cut, on any type of project; layout, card, tag, or altered project. Our only requirement is that it must be NEW as of 9/23/2011 and you must use "heart(s)"!!  How easy is that!!! 
I decided to use this Acrylic/Chipboard 8" x 8" Mixable Album from Clear Scraps that I got from CKC in San Marcos last week, and I absolutely love the Vintage look....  I also used the QuicKutz Hearts cookie cutter die, as my "heart", which I embossed and then distressed just a little..
I Sponged the edges of the album with Timber Brown Staz-on Ink, and then outlined them with a Krylon Pale Gold leafing pen.  Added pearls with the Viva Decor Dark Brown Pearl Pen..  Charms are from the Prima Vintage Trinket Collection except the locket heart, which is from a necklace.

Here are the other pages.....

Don't you just love the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Papers?!!!!!  I think they are one of my favorite papers out there!!!!!


Notice the little "Fairy" tag on the left..ticked behind a fussy cut flower.  2 photo mats on the right...


Sorry for the little bit of glare!  It's so hard for me to get a good photo of Acrylic...
Fussy cut the little angel on the right.  Added the flowers and more hearts..


Added some Prima Flowers, a Martha Stewart Butterfly and ribbon..
Notice all of the stamping around the edges of the last page..  I used the Heartfelt Creations Flourish Stamp.


And here's the very back page!

I am so happy with the way this turned out,
and I hope you enjoyed it as well!!


This project will qualify for a few other challenges out there...
Little Red Wagon ~ Repeat After Me (Stamped the Flourish Stamp around the front and back borders)
Pollycraft Monday ~ Swirls & Pearls
The (Paper) Trail Makers ~ That is just so Yesterday (Vintage)


Please be sure and check out the inspiration from the Design Team and we would love for you to play along with us...  We have a fabulous prize for the month of September so be sure and check that out too!!
Thanks for dropping by!!
Have a great day!!
Hugs!!!

Gorgeous mini Fern, very shbby vintage chic! I've never used a acrylic mini yet but would love to try one. I think I actually have a couple and haven't used them yet. I may have to dig them out and give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration! I sure hope you still pop in on some of the challenges, I love all your projects, and hope we get a chance to work together again. (Are you sure it wasn't something I said, LOL, just kidding, I'll be seeing you in blog land!)
