Made with Love 1st DT assignment

As you all know, my favourite local scrapbook store is back in town.. And I am so honoured to be a part of this wonderful design team. We were given our first assignment this week and with the kit that was provided, I did a card and a layout.

Did i mention that I was super excited when I received the kit? It was like opening up presents on Christmas Day. It was awesome, being able to work with items from the kit. It truly challenges me to think outside the box and use whatever that is given. (: 

First up, a layout using the kit...

I used the photos and the patterned papers to form a grid format across the page. This is one orientation that I love to use on my layouts. I used the wood veneer tags and hearts in two ways here. Firstly, backing up the wood tag with patterned paper...

Also, I left the heart wood veneers raw and used it as an area for clustering little details such as the staplet and the enamel dots.

Patterned papers : Webster Pages
Embellishments : Prima wood veneers
                          MWL flaire badges
                          MME cut and paste stickers 
                          AC alpha rub ons

Up next, I made a card using the same kit provided. As you all know, I am truly not a cardmaker. So this was pretty much a challenging task.

Patterned papers - WeRMemoryKeepers and Webster Pages
Embellishments - Prima Wood Veneers, Misc Apple Clip

Using one of the phrase tags found in the Webster Page's patterned paper, I used it as my focus for the card. It would serve as my sentiment too. To match the florals on the phrase tag, I embossed a floral background with white embossing ink. I embossed the heart wood veneers too, which is another great way of adding texture. To match the seasonal fall theme, I hand cut green leaves and placed a small yellow flower sequin on top. In the kit, I was also provided a cute green apple clip that matched so well with this seasonal card.
