Fly ♥︎

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a card with Pion Design's beautiful Scent of Lavender collection. I also had a play with some new LLC goodies and am in love. ♥︎

I am bringing the beauty and joy of Spring to a young cancer warrior, encouraging her to fly high above the overwhelming heartache. ♥︎
The purple florals from Scent of Lavender are especially beautiful, which I paired with two shades of Pion's heavyweight Palette collection: Purple I and Purple IV. Ruffling along the bottom is the new Shabbylicious Ruffle Lace, which is my new favorite! I want to put it on everything in my house. ♥︎
Sandy has added so many gorgeous products to her store and I am very excited about the Wycinanka chippies. The focal point of my card is from their Spring Circles set, upon which I layered Pion butterflies. My project is ruffling with love, so I tucked a small part of the Background Hearts within the lace. All of the chippies on my card are embossed with Shabby White Frantage.
Fly is from Wycinanka's Make Art word set, which rests above a sprinkling of Background Hearts. Woven within my Wild Orchid Crafts arrangements is lovely pearl garland. The garland is available in several gorgeous colors.

(Forgive the photography of this final picture especially... I'm including it only because it shows the inside. I wish I had time to re-do these photos!)
My card base is made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. The base for my chippie focal point is from Sue Wilson's Italian Decorative Frames. The leaves are a Tattered Lace die. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend! ♥︎

Today, Tomorrow, Always...

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I hope your week has been beautiful. I am posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a card featuring lovely Pion Design papers. I paired a sweet image from Linneaus Botanical Journal with Easter Greetings papers. ♥︎
One of the many things I've learned in my involvement with disease-battling kiddos is that their parents have zero time (or energy) to celebrate their marriage/love. They tirelessly fight for their child's survival every moment. So what I like to include in my boxes of love is a card for the parents to essentially give each other... an easy way for them to give a small gift in the hospital without needing to spend money or leave their child's side.

The Lily of the Valley design felt perfect for this image that celebrates forever love. The sweetness and softness are perfectly Pion. :o) The couple is nestled within a resin Prima Victorian Frame, which is covered in Shabby White Frantage. I kept the overall color palette neutral with sweet pops of peach. The metal die border down the center panel is a Tattered Lace Beloved Border.
These darling pale peach roses were hidden amongst my LLC flowers and I'm grateful I found them yesterday! I love them with this collection. They are generously sprinkled with Glamour Dust. Magnolia Heart Swirls serve as my foliage. Layered atop a seam binding bow are shabby liberty bells tied with Prima Vax Cord. I went a wee bit trim happy with this card down the sides and along the bottom. ♥︎
Melissa Frances Garnish Applique corners adorn the top. Tucked within both flower arrangements are Melissa Frances pearls. The Cheery Lynn butterfly is centered with sparkly peachy love.
The celebration of sweet love continues inside, which is lined with the 12x12 version of the Lily of the Valley design. My sentiment is from Whimsical Designs (no longer in business) and is cut out with a Spellbinders Nested Lacy Pennant.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly weekend! ♥︎
