And now, back to scrapping.... ;) The Rev pears and nesting scalloped ovals are two of my assigned dies for this month and I just love them both. They're an easy play on words which is perfect for 'couples' themes. Font for this card is Flirt and the inside message is printed in the matching computer font on a clear label. Papers and brads are from the Basic Grey, Eva collection.
Again using the pears and scalloped ovals, another anniversary, engagement or wedding card.

(Please excuse the funky color shading across the top. It's not like that in real life but the shadows caused by the buttons made the stitching process wiggy.) Pattern papers and buttons are from the Basic Grey, Mellow, line.

For this page I used the Flirt spring set and alpha (li'l), Yogurt grand alpha (Diva), both scalloped border dies, framed label, flourishes, and the ribbon from the 4x4 pear die from the new wedding themed QK release.

This first layout is my niece and nephew-in-law (is that a real 'relation' or did I make that up?) on their wedding day last summer. First of all, are they a beautiful couple, or what?! For this page I used the small nesting scalloped oval and 2x2 dress from the May release, large scallop border die, and the monogram "A" is from the Fiesta font. I used the Eva collection from Basic Grey, rubons, Prima flowers, pebbles, and fancy brads by Making Memories, and computer generated text.
In answer to the questions about flourishes and the monogramk the flourishes are all cardstock stickers from the Basic Grey Eva collection that match the pattern papers. The monogram 'box' is also a sticker from that collection with an oval behind it cut from one of the Spellbinders nesting ovals. The A is from the Fiesta font and the "Mr. Mrs." are printed on a clear label. Thanks, Gem, for asking about those. HTH
Close up of just them so you can see better how cute they are. LOL
To make it match Ali's wedding gown, I adorned the dress with stickles.
You might notice on the journaling tag, I used Sue's dry embossing technique to enhance the scallops just to give it an extra punch.
On this card, I used the large nesting scalloped oval and pears (these are so cute, aren't they) from this release, in addition to the hearts from the Flirt Spring gift set, Chick-a-Dee, Tangerine and Tangerine shadows alphabets. The border punch is Martha Stewart, doily lace.
For this layout the pears were the perfect accent to emphasize the title and the lips are just too cute not to incorporate someplace on this page! Journaling is the large nesting scalloped oval, title is Disco and Relax fonts, and flourish is from one of the damask dies. For a little added punch, I pierced the scallops on the oval with a large needle and outlined the journaling. I then outlined the page as well. Pattern papers for this page are Basic Grey, Mellow.

I love foam tape, in case you'd forgotten. ;) It makes the fish and dolphin embellies come alive right here on the page! Here's a close up view of the dolphin. Isn't he the cutest.

For this first layout I've used the Enjoy set (the red one), rounded nesting squares and the instant photo die - this shape is perfect for a retro feel or for those pics that aren't exactly professional quality or need some of the background junk cropped out (as with these pics of my daughter in 1978!) The sunglasses are from the Relax set. *You know what....it just occured to me as I post this, that I forgot to make the lenses DARK for SUNglasses. DUH*
For the title on this 9x9 page of my sister and niece, Alison, I used the fonts from both Enjoy and Relax . This is Ali at swimming lessons when she was 7 months old in February 1981. She was married last summer. Wow, times flies!!!
Embellies here are also from both sets; the turtle from Relax and the swim suit from Enjoy. The new swim suits are so cute. I used the instant photo die again which I totally love. Doesn't the beachy feel to the Relax font remind you of Spongebob Squarepants -- it sure does me! I wish they had included a pineapple with the shapes! LOL
"You Shine" card --font and sunshine from the Enjoy set.
The card is made from the round contact card from the April release. I folded my cardstock before cutting the shape, making sure the fold was below the edge of the die so it would not cut two pieces.
No, this is not a new textured cardstock.....it's my massively scarred up Revolution cutting mat that leaves this unique texture. LOL Guess it's time to change it, huh????
Next I cut one shape out of pattern paper, embellished and adhered to front of the card. (Sorry for the blur.) Add ribbon around the fold and you're done. Quick and easy but also unique and special.
My grampa is taking a cruise up the coast to Alaska in a couple of weeks so I'm sending him this card. For this card, I used the Relax set. The font is so different from any other QK fonts and just plain fun to work with. The surf is also a Relax shape and the water in the background is actually the sand from the sand castle shape in this set. The mountains are from the Germany set.
Red/black canvas tote that comes with the Enjoy set. That's a functional pocket on the front. The lining is black with white polka dots--adorable!!
