Labors of Love

Hello and welcome to another Saturday edition of Rhapsody on Paper!  Gosh it's been 2 whole weeks since my last post.  How are ya'all doing?  Beating the heat/weather worries?  I have been busy creating from scratch a new to me project.

I have a few very close friends.  For their birthdays, I pull out all the stops.  I try to create unique birthday cards for each of them.  This usually means trials with lots of errors (bet that's why I fill my recycling bin).  So I opened Make The Cut software and started designing. (in a while I will be able to make video's to show you how I create something).  I wanted to make a word book. So using basic shapes and the Vedana font, I made pages for each letter of my book.  Then came the designing stage.  Since I made this for my sister of my heart, I tried to personalize each page directly to her.  I used a lot of ScrappyDew files.  So here are the lyrics:

I used several different combinations from the Scrap Factory program.  
On the E page I used hair melissa, outfit capri and diva purse 3.  On the L page, I used a file from the ScrappyDew Vault called Camping Kids girl set 2. My girls gave me the dragonfly punch.  

On the next L page I used a ScrapFactory doll with hair melissa, outfit summer girl and open toes body.  I also used the Say Cheese Mouse file from ScrappyDew.  Also on this page are a Scrap Factory cheerleader with hair vicki and last a ScrappyDew file called Baby Girl Crawling 2013.  On the Y page I used ScrappyDew's file Drop Dead Diva's #4.  I created the cake stand in Make The Cut (again with basic shapes).

Boy howdy that's a lot of files.  Now I could list all the papers and embellishments, nawwww.  It's mostly recollections paper and stuff I buy on clearance.

Are you ready to take a look?   HERE IS WHAT I CREATED!!!

Whew.....that was a lot of work packed with a whole bunch of love.  Kelly, I know that you follow my blog so just be patient.  It's in the mail and will be there in about 12 days.  

That's it from my neck of the woods for this weeks post.  Coming up in the next few posts are a couple of cards for the men in my life.  And don't forget, we have Christmas cards to get started....

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your comments.  They mean the world to me.  

Bright Blessings, Jana
