FM44 All You Need is Love...

My turn to host the challenge at the Friday Mashup. I love creating projects using inspirational photos, so here's a few from Martha-bleeping-Stewart. Hope you can join us this week!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using the "Inspiration Photo".
  2. Or Make a project using the colors "Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose & Whisper White".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Inspired by the photo using the colors Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose & Whisper White".
*With all of our Challenges that have a Stampin' Up! Color Combo, you may substitute any colors with similar ones you have on hand.

My daughter's been bugging me about making Valentine's decorations. The upper left photo reminded me of some decor I wanted to try.

We cut out hearts with the Hearts Collection framelits and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit, embossed on a few, and ran them through the sewing machine. Pretty easy, although my sewing machine had some issues. I'm sure it's from all the abuse I've put it through sewing on paper.

Here they are hanging from the chandelier.

Now we have to go make more, because she wants her own style and colors for her decorations.

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose, Whisper White; Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Adorning Accents embossing folder, Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit, Hearts Collection framelits, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
