Avery Elle December Release Day #1 ~ Lots of Love

***scroll down to see my TAWS post***


It's the first of the month and that means Avery Elle release Day #1!  This month Avery Elle is releasing 4 new sets!  I know everyone is knee-deep in holiday prep, but these sets will get you thinking about Valentine's Day (yeah, I went there;)  Today we're all featuring projects using the new set Lots of Love!  


This first card is about as girly as they come!  I used my favorite sentiment in the whole set:)  To play on the sentiment, I created a gatefold card that opens up to...


reveal a larger ribbon!  This one was a little tricky to put together, but I love the final look.  {Tip: Do a dry run with repositional tape before permanently gluing the pieces together}  The bow is decorative, but it's also keeping the card closed;



This next card was a no-brainer!  Chalkboard art seems to be all over the place lately (like here and here) and this set was just screaming to be done up in chalkboard!  I heat embossed all the sentiments in white and stamped over with white ink.  Added a little more white ink smudged here and there and penciled in a frame, done and done.  Cute but still masculine enough for hubby;)


That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you click on over to these links below to see what wonderful projects Jamie, Chunyuan, and Heather have made with this set:)

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
