Loves me

Although we hadn't planned it that way, the timing couldn't have been better as my next post ties in with Nina's last one, for the next LO I'd like to share was inspired by the 'loves me loves me not' heart stamp from the 'Made with love and laughter' set.

As soon as I saw this stamp the idea for this LO came into my mind, I immediately thought of my fantastic Dad who has always been there for me through thick and thin so I entitled my LO 'Always Loves Me' I thought these photos of my much younger self with my Dad were perfect for this LO theme so I scanned copies of them to use on the LO.

I used several stamps from the 'Made with love and laughter set' starting with the loves me, loves me not heart stamp which I stamped and then cut out so I could wrap it around the flowers.
I then made the title by cutting out the letters using my cricut machine and stamping the smaller heart to use in place of the O. I created some additional texture by stamping over the M and E letter shapes with the flowered heart stamp. To finish I then created a flower embellishment by stamping the shadow heart flower and outline heart flower onto co-ordinating patterned papers.


Thanks for looking,

big smiles, Nic xo
