1, 2, 3 Challenge

Charms Creations sponsors all kinds of great challenges and this month one of those challenges is the 1, 2, 3 Challenge blog where you are given three key criteria for your creation (a colour, a word and a technique). This is the criteria for this month:





Now how can you go wrong with red and hearts, and including the word lovely was easy enough too! Here is my finished page:


I used all kinds of great goodies on my page, and I had been waiting for the perfect time to use this beautiful MME collection and it was just right for this page and photos. The soft pink texture paste is from Shimmerz and is such a pretty soft colour and was perfect with the heart stencil (Scrap FX) to add some subtle background detail.


 

I have been experimenting with the vellum bows from Rainbow Splendour and decided to cut one in half and place on either side of the the circle Charms Creation (which just happened to be spotty and a red and a perfect match), it kind of looks like a lolly or sweet now! I love how it turned out.


One of the patterned papers had these cool string art hearts that were just begging to be cut out, so I did! They were great for layering around the page, and here layered with a Burdy's Embellie red spotty button, wood veneer and word sticker.


The title was a print and cut created using my Silhouette and then foiled in light pink, and finished with some hand writing above.


This cute little felt heart was a special that came with one of my Rainbow Splendour orders, and well.... it just fit the brief and tied in with the Charms felt too.

There you have it! My 1, 2, 3 Challenge completed.

Thanks for stopping by,

Katie
