What an awesome first release for winnie & walter last month! Julie, Shay and the entire Design Team really knocked it out of the park with the samples. The reaction from everyone was absolutely incredible. AND, The Big, The Bold and The Happy set even sold out (it's back in stock now).
Keeping the excitement level up, we're doing a series this week using winnie & walter products with Lawn Fawn products. I'm posting my projects today, and the rest of the Design Team will be sharing on the winnie & walter blog throughout the week, so you'll want to make sure to keep checking back.
I went with the obvious match-up for the card ... the winnie & walter You've Got Love Mail set and the Lawn Fawn You've Got Mail set. They were made for each other (figuratively speaking)!
The mailbox is Lawn Fawn, everything else is winnie & walter. The heart is fussy-cut and loosely stuck into the mail slot that's been cut with an exacto. I like how you can take the heart out, and also see it through the slot.
I went with vellum for the front because I wanted the hugs and kisses to look like they're floating out of the mailbox. Also wanted to peek through to the inside, where I've cut the heart from The Write Stuff: Love Story.
It gives a nice, layered effect. Papers are American Crafts Lucky Charm. The double-sided card base is cut to be 4 1/4 x 6 inches and scored at 5 1/2 inches. That extra 1/2 inch I folded over, and used to sew the vellum onto.
Then, because I'm sneaky, I lured you in with a card, and am also going to post ...
my first ever real scrapbook layout in almost 2 years! Boy did it feel good to be scrapbooking again. I really missed it. In addition to the creative process, nothing matches the joy when you show your kids a page made just for them. Since I'm out of practice working in the 12x12 space, it did take me quite a bit longer to do. But definitely worth it. I've got another page coming this week too.
I partially inked the Lawn Fawn Interlocking Borders starting from the bottom left to the top right of the page. Drew the outline frame like Mou Saha does and used a date stamp.
Here's the journaling. w&w stamps for the journaling heart, as well as the arrow/heart/"hugs & kisses"
Baby steps. I know it will take awhile for me to feel comfortable on a 12 x 12 canvas again. It was surprising to me how hesitant and unsure of myself I was creating this page. But just like anything else, I'll need to practice, practice, practice.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to check winnie & walter the rest of the week to see all the projects made in conjunction with Lawn Fawn products.
