Valentine Treat

Is that cute? I really like using the new Star burst Framelit with the lil' alligator!! 

This Valentine treat is a quick and simple Valentine treat.  The Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, this year's Sale-A-Bration paper is one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration paper series, really cute paper!!This particular piece of paper just goes so well with the See Ya Later Alligator stamp set. I also embossed only the top of the treat, kinda picks up on the whole alligator theme.

You Make Me Happy Card
This is a card I made using the Ombre Technique. It's a technique that uses colors in progressive hues of color. Yellow is a color that evokes happy feelings so I decided to emphasis this!!

The color in this card definitely evokes happy..happy... happy!!

Since the colors on the card are bright, I decided to keep the flower a little more subtle not to compete with the vibrance of the card. What do you think??

Me and You Scrapbook Page
When I started designing this scrapbook page, I knew I wanted to focus on the color purple. So I went to the Color Coach to come up with a combination of colors that would work for this page. The Color Coach is an excellent tool by the way, it really is a tool you will use over and over. So the color combination here is Perfect Plum, Early Espresso and Whisper White. I also used Silver as a fun accent color. This is me and my honey, so here is what I came up with:

This is such a cute page is real life! :) I used the banners and touches of silver to reflect fun and glitz!!

Is that little banner sweet or what??

The  Silver Embossed vellum and the Gorgeous Grunge add different type of textures and interest.

I really like, ok LOVE the way this page turned out!! First purple is my favorite color and I am with my favorite guy, so what's not to love !!  :))
