Le Romantique SFYTT


Earlier in the week, I mentioned my current obsession with Graphic45's "Le Romantique" paper line, Webster's Pages trims, and JustRite's awesome sentiments. Today, I have three more cards to share. First up is a card I made using Jen's Sketch For You To Try for this week:


For the sentiment circle, I've combined a sentiment from Birthday Centers with a frame from Decorative Wide Borders. The two trims are both from the Sea & Garden Trim Collection by Webster's Pages. On the greenish-blue one, I threaded some Offray 1/8" ivory satin ribbon through the center of the trim and topped with a loopy bow. On the glittery Melissa Frances chipboard heart, I added two more of those little postage stamp images (also from the Le Romantique pack). The long vertical panel with the woman's face on it is also from one of the Le Romantique patterns.

Check out the awesome variations on today's sketch:

Hope you can play along this week! Just link up your creation to Jen's post and remember to use keyword SFYTT when you upload to online galleries.



Here, I cut out a vintage image from one of the Le Romantique patterns to use as a focal image. The sentiment again comes from JustRite's Birthday Centers (not just for birthdays, by the way). I had to work in some more of those adorable little postage stamps, too - they make me happy!



Last, I used another of the vintage cut-outs for a focal image, along with more teeny postage stamps. The sentiment here is from JustRite's All Occasion Nested Centers and Verse (I inked just the word "Love" in "I Love You"). At the top is a partial die-cut using Spellbinders Labels Four Nestabilties and along the bottom are a Martha Stewart Optic Dots border punch, some Webster's Pages trim and cream seam binding. The fabric rose is from Webster's Pages' Bloomers Fabric Flower Trim. The trinket pins are by Maya Road.

Thanks for visiting, and have a great weekend!
