Pals Blog Hop - Love is in the Air

Hello Friends,

Love is in the air as the Stampin' Pretty Pals share the love with cards and projects for today's Pals Blog Hop!

You've probably hopped over from Dawn Tidd at "My Stampin' Blog." I'm stop number 6 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for love themed paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up at the bottom of the post and you'll be back on track.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I want to share a fun project with you.  Shown above, is a wonderful idea for home decor.  I love the blocks that Stampin' Up! sells.  All you have to do is decorate them to your liking. 
I covered them with Poppy Parade and Very Vanilla Cardstock (2 in each color).  I then used the "Everyday Enchantment" Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog which begins January 24th.  I ran this paper through the Big Shot using the Scallop Square Duo Die.

I have always been a fan of the Serif Alphabet.  The set costs $149.95 - I have used this set over and over and over and over.  Well worth it for all your paper crafting needs. I cut out "LOVE" using Soft Suede Card Stock.

I only stamped ONE image on this project. I used the 'crown' from Artistic Etchings. 

I decorated the first block using the "Beautiful Wings" Embosslit Die. (This is the top of the block)

I hope you enjoyed my project.  I had fun creating it.  I love using the Big Shot along with dies and embosslits etc.  If you enjoy using the pearls - you MUST check out the pearls in the Occasions Mini.  They are much bigger and look great.
