To make the focal point image, I stamped the Heartfelt stamp twice, once on Primrose Petal in the same ink and then again on Very Vanilla with Early Espresso ink. Then I cut out the Primrose Petal image with the coordinating Framelit. I added a bit of color to the one on Very Vanilla with my marker and then cut the center oval out of it to layer on top of the Primrose Petal piece.
It was just a happy coincidence that I happened to have the Lucky Limeade piece already cut from a previous project that didn't quite turn out the way I wanted. It cut it with the Adorning Accents Edgelit on both sides and then ran it back through the Big Shot with the Adorning Accents Embosslit folders. I love how it perfectly frames the Apothecary Accent shape. I am so happy that the Adorning Accents collection carried over from the Occasions Mini Catalog. They add just the right touch to projects.
Today I'm off to a girls weekend at Lake Tahoe with my Ya-Ya's -- you know those friends you've known forever and know where the bodies are buried. Totally kidding about the bodies, but you know what I mean. I've known them since I was 10 and I'm so excited because it's been a long time since we were all together. We get a whole weekend without kids and husbands and responsibilities in one of my favorite places on the planet. I hope you all have your own Ya Ya's and that you get see them again soon too.
