I got the idea for this layout from the new Close to my Heart Idea book. The book had a sample of a layout that had the pocket with "10 things I love about you". I new I had to do one!:) The layout is totally different from what is in their book, I just wanted to use the pocket with the "10 things".
For this layout, I used the "Wuff You", and the "Fancy Flourish" collections from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. The paper is the "Sweetheart Level 2" collection from Close to my Heart.
I made a cut file for the pocket. I cut strips of paper 1" wide by 5" long. Cut some little decorative squares to add to the tops and added the numbers. I tied some ribbon around a few of the strips. I printed the "10 Things I Love About You" on cardstock and then centered it under my spellbinders die and cut it out. I embossed the red paper with the heart blocks cuttlebug folder. Then I added some dew drops and liquid pearls.
Here is a close up of one of the flourishes. I added hearts to them. I ran the hearts through my xyron and then sprinkled them with Martha Stewart glitter. I added a few tags with sentiments and stitched the photo mats.
Close up of dog. I embossed the word "Love" with clear embossing powder and added some stitching with my white gel pen.
Close up of puppy.
Close up of sentiment. Again, I embossed it with clear embossing powder.
