New Sentiments!

Hello! I here with a 5x7 card  for Cheery Lynn Designs featuring a couple crosses from the new Cross Set and With Sympathy sentiment.
I used the Mini Pearl Rectangle Reflections set to create the base of my card, and layered it with Classic Coved Rectangle Silver Stacker, adding a piece from Lace Corner Deco F to dress up the corners, giving the card a more elegant feel. The Scalloped Oval Stacker, layered with the Classic Oval Silver Stacker is raised on pop dots to give the card a bit of dimension. I added a Large Rose with leaves from Build a Flower #2 and Olive Branches.

There are three beautiful crosses in the Cross Set. I chose two crosses, layering one atop the other!

Leave a comment on our kickoff Sunday post for your chance to win. Be sure to visit the Imaginisce blog for more inspiration and a chance to win product from Imaginisce.

I want to send HUGE THANK YOU to Imaginsce for giving me such a wonderful opportunity and fabulous package of goodies! They really were a treat to work with! I hope you enjoy my project! I’ve got lots to share, so let’s get started!! Since I have so many pages/photos, I will keep my words to a minimum! :-)
Remember, you can click on any photo to enlarge.
I used my goodies to create a vacation mini album. I started with a 6x6 chipboard album that has been waiting in my stash for just the right project! The black chipboard really makes everything pop! I even used my Imaginisce i-rock and hot rocks to enhance some of the embellishments throughout the album! Dutch Scallop Square Frame

Hello! I here with a layout for Cheery Lynn Designs. This week I want to share more ways to use your borders.   

 The delicacy of the Lace Light Deco Border creates a romantic feel around the edge of the page. I simply lined the borders around the edge until is was complete. I used the Tiffany Border to create the ambiance around the Scalloped Circle Reflections Boutique die. The Tiffany Border has a beautiful scalloped edge. Snipping with my scissors at every two scallops, I cut my border strip in to small pieces and carefully aligned them under the scallop circle.

The bouquet consists of Stacker Flower #3 with the center cut using Build a Flower #1, Mini Rose, and Large Rose. The foliage is Flourish Leaf Strip, Fanciful Flourish, Small Leaves #2, Large Leaves #2. 
There is still time to enter this weeks challenge for your chance to win the $20 gift certificate!
Tune in August 5-11 for lots of fun as we are pairing up with the fabulous Design Team from Imaginisce!
