"Love Letter" FAMILY

For several years, now, I have been creating custom letters/names for everyone else EXCEPT ME!  So, I decided it was high time I made my very own letters for my mantel that I've been envisioning in my mind ever since I saw the designer paper, "Love Letters".  I absolutely LOVE that paper -- everything you create with it is simply gorgeous!
Without further ado, here they are!  Tell me what you think! :)

The gorgeous 3-D flower on the top of the "I", is made with another favorite -- the Fun Flowers die (from the Occasions mini -- but I'm sure it will carry over to the new catalog).  That die makes the trendiest, coolest flowers ever!  Here, I cut the flowers out in Very Vanilla, and sponged the tips with Crumb Cake ink, then spritzed them liberally with Vanilla Smooch.  They are so soft and pearly and vintage in real life!  I also used some Basic pearls, retired hodgepodge hardware, and various ribbons to embellish them.  I did use the sheet music designer paper from the Newsprint series, but otherwise it is the Love Letters DSP.

Enjoy, and happy crafting!


  1. Love this, are they wood or paper mache? I've wanted to do a few for my stamp room, just haven't gotten I guess the courage to do it yet.

  2. The letters are wood -- or particle board type stuff -- not solid wood.

  3. The letters are beautiful. You did a great job nice and neat. I do the same thing make for others but not for us. Congrats on your new home. Enjoy!
