Jillibean Soup | Love the Little Things...

Hello Everyone.  It's my birthday today and I wanted to share some love with you.  Starting with this little tag/card I made for Jillibean Soup.



products used: cs - kaisercraft; pp - Jillibean Soup; other - Jillibean Soup: tag, twine, soup label; vellum, liquid pearl; tools - flower punch.


I wanted to create something heart shaped for this week, but not necessarily in the traditional sense.  So, I collected several sheets of red/pink Jillibean papers and started punching out small flowers.  Once I had the amount I needed, I started to form them into a heart shape.  Easy peasy.  *grin*

The flowers on their own however, still looked a little flat.  I added some liquid pearl as flower centers just for that extra dimension.  On top of the heart, I adhered a soup label sticker directly to some vellum and cut out a banner shape from each end. The soup label was then mounted onto foam tape.
 
 

I really love how versatile each of the Jillibean Soup patterned papers are!  I have used several collections on this little card, but I don't think you can really tell.  :)

Okay, so as it is my birthday, today I would also love to say thank you to all of my on-line friends who come to visit and leave me wonderful comments to savour.  I really appreciate every one's efforts to leave a kind word.  Not only does it continue to encourage me to create and post here on my blog, but I also gain valuable insight into you, the reader.  I love to visit your blogs.  I love to see your scrapbooking/papercrafting creativity, your scrap spaces and to read about your creative processes!  If I could, I'd spend ridiculous amounts of time on the computer pouring over heaps of scrappy blogs...Ha!  I love them... but that's not going to happen with a three year old in the back ground here!  LOL!!

So... Thank you.  To each and every one of you, who takes time from your busy schedule to leave a little bit of love for me...x
