Don't forget all the embellishments...


Hi everyone, it's Deana Boston again! I've been having a lot of fun working with the U R My Favorite line. While it certainly is PERFECT for Valentine's Day, I love to use hearts on my projects all year round so it's really versatile, too! Don't forget all the fun embellishments (& even the packaging) on your pages & projects though. They really can add some extra texture, dimmension or even a pop of color to your creations!



On my first page I used brown corduroy brads instead of using O's in my title...





I never seem to tire of the cute scalloped-edge borders in Nikki's product lines & use them a LOT! I also added a little glitter to my lamp (from the Victoria's Street line) to add a little more interest...






On the following cards, I cut up the cover of the 6x6 U R My Favorite paper paddie.




The breadless tabs are fun to use in MANY different ways, but I added mine to my ribbon with an extra little sentiment on top...








And on this one, I used a craft flag + the Willie Bee font stampies...


















Just a little wish for GOOD LUCK to Nikki at CHA! We all know she'll be a success, once again, and I'm so happy to be part of her team!
