Love pages, FUNdamentals of Love

What better time to focus a page on the one you love than today? Technique Tiles FUNdamentals of Love are a great way to get both pages and cards done, quickly and easily.

The first page is designed to be a complete 12x12 page. the pieces all fit together like a puzzle, allowing you to pop out each piece, decorate however you like, and then pop the pieces back together, add pictures and viola! Finished page.

This is one of my all time favorite pages from Creative Director Eileen Collins. I have scraplifted elements from this page more times than I can count!! First, she covered the inside of the frame background with velvet polka dot paper. The outside edge was created by stamping with the largest stamp on the Irony set in red, then very lightly dragging a Seabreeze VersaMagic ink pad over the top.

You really don't want to know how she made the title - lets just say she really lived up to her unofficial title of "Freakishly Creative" Director. SO - the more sane way is: stamp Serendipity letters individually onto pink cardstock and cut out. If you would like the letters to stand out a little more, mount with pop dots.

On this page - Eileen left the middle of the background blank - the best part of the Technique Tiles are the fact that they are a beautiful Vanilla white color - equally nice blank as well as embellished.

The outside edge is the same concept as "My Funny Valentine." She stamped images from the Casablanca set in black, then swiped Tea Leaves VersaMagic ink over the top.

The title was stamped first with Savannah letters in Tea Leaves, and then stamped over the top with Serendipity in black. Using the phrase "With all my Heart" from the Small Talk Word set, she
stamped along the edge of the heart.
On page two of the FUNdamentals of Love - there are not only a ton of little hearts and swirls, but there is also a really cool Curly Bracket Frame! Tiffany Tillman painted the frame black and then used Whispygigs on kraft cardstock to create her own patterned paper!

The title was stamped with Big Timber Line Lower Letters - Tall, Big Timber Lower Letters - Large and finished off with a heart from page two of the FUNdamentals of Love and an arrow from the Stars and Arrows Technique Tiles set.
