Cherry Pie

I've returned from Winter 2010 CHA in Anaheim and I have a few new creations to share! This month at Everything Scrapp'n, the design team is working with Nikki Sivils' My Sweet Cherry Pie line. Suz's January challenge is to scrap with the phrase "Show the Love" in mind. You may focus on a relationship you share with some one or their relationship with some one else.

The cherry paper reminded me of my friend Jenny. She is always wearing cherry patterned clothing and I have several photos of her in them. I wanted to document photos I took of her from last January. I'm always goofing off when we have a photo shoot. It makes it easier to get a natural smile out of her. I usually say give me some love or show me some attitude. The crazy things photographers do to get the shot! I used a sketch that Kristi posted (during our first online crop) as a jumping off point.Products used: White cardstock, Nikki Sivils My Sweet Cherry Pie Cherry Luck pp, Cherry Sweet pp, Cherry Tree pp, Cherry Cutie Cut-Ups pp, American Crafts Fabric Thickers Delight-black, Prima Text/Computer pebbles, Jenni Bowlin Pearl flowers-cream cheese, American Crafts Chit Chat accents puffy shape stickers, Hambly Doilies rub on-limited edition red, Hambly Elegant Labels rub on-white, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Meadow Green, Making Memories Magnetic Date stamp, Fiskars Border Punch-Apron lace, Staz On-timber brown, gesso.

I have had these cute little text pebbles for a while and waited for just the right project to use them. You will certainly find Jenny & I giggling during our photo shoots. Jenny's birthday is coming up at the end of February so here is a simple card I made with some of the left overs:Products used: White cardstock, Nikki Sivils My Sweet Cherry Pie Cherry Luck pp, Cherry Tree pp, Hambly Doilies rub on-limited edition red, Heidi Swapp Circle bling frame, Fiskars Border Punch-Apron lace, Marvy Uchida circle punch, A Muse Art Stamps Happy Birthday Bold, Staz On-timber brown.

I cut out the strips of paper from the Cherry Overload paper and then used my hole punch to center the cherries & horse shoe. I really like how versatile the paper is. And another fun card:Products used: White cardstock, Nikki Sivils My Sweet Cherry Pie Cherry Luck pp, Cherry Brownie pp, Cherry Cutie Cut-Ups pp, Heidi Swapp Circle bling frame, Marvy Uchida circle punch, Staz On-timber brown.
