I'm the kickoff for today's hop, so settle in and let's get to hopping!
I loved that little xoxo at the bottom of the inspiration photo and thought it would be fun to make a little shaker pocket, so that's where I started. The xoxo are cut from glimmer cardstock with the Vintage Market alpha die from Tim Holtz (a rediscovery in my latest reorganization). I ran them through my Xyron create a sticker machine, then cut a piece of white card stock the size I wanted my pocket. I embossed this piece with hearts, then inked some spun sugar and worn lipstick distress ink directly onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water and applied over the dry embossed paper. I then stuck my xoxo letters to the paper and cut a piece of acetate to cover the piece. Pulled out my sewing machine and stitched three sides, then stuffed in some sequins from the Pink Sparkle Mix and Signature Sequin Mix, as well as a couple hearts cut with the Heart Quartet Die and sewed up my little shaker.
Next I stamped the with love from me to you sentiment from Chevron Love on a piece of acetate in Archival black and added a couple glitter hearts cuts with the Heart Quartet Die for accent. This is layered over a piece of white cardstock which I embossed with a different heart folder and then splattered a bit of watered down worn lipstick ink. I added a little border to my scrap of designer paper using a piece of glimmer cardstock cut with the heart trim from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set Set. Finished off by accenting my xoxo pocket with a few of the leftover hearts from the die and glued it all together. Super fun!
That's all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by.
