SPCC #31 - Love, Love, Love

After a long hiatus from any real scrapbooking, I am back with another LO. This is for Samantha's SPCC #31. If you haven't checked out her delightful Color Combo blog, you really should! Each week she has a wonderful new color combo and a great prize. This week's combo is pretty tough - Real Red, Apricot Appeal, and Pretty in Pink. I have to admit that I rarely use these colors. They made me think of Valentine's Day. And this year I have a new little love. Adelyn is my 6-month-old granddaughter. For this LO, I used SU Real Red, SU Apricot Appeal, and some Daisy D's checked pink paper. For trim, I used red rick rack. The "love" words were cut using a Sizzix die. The stamps are from Carolee's Creations (Beautiful) and TAC (Sprigs).

SPCC #29 - Notebook

Samantha and her SPCC challenge are up and running for 2010! Be sure to check out her blog. Each week she posts a color combo challenge. Some are pretty easy, while some are really tough. This week's colors are Brilliant Blue, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, and Lavender Lace (the ones with four are a little tougher)! These colors are gorgeous (and make me think of coooold winter, but everything right now makes me think of coooold winter). I am supposed to do LOs, but got in a bit of a time crunch with final exams and Christmas. So I put together this little notebook. For the pages, I used 5x8 notecards cut in half (yay for the Zutter DreamKuts). The cover is chipboard. And I bound it with the Zutter Bind-It-All - definitely a must-have! I also used the SU Scalloped Border punch when decorating the cover.
