Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop – All You Need Is Love

GV Blog Header

Welcome to another Grand Vacation Achiever’s Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “All You Need is Love” – such an easy one for crafty people to do.  One of my favorites in the new Occasions Catalogue is the Love at First Sight set; I’m always partial to flourishes.

This idea has rattled around in my head since I received this set:

This colour combo is a sure winner every time: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Real Red, and Very Vanilla.

~ All the hearts are stamped in Versamark, but only one heat embossed

~ Yes, that is real stitching. Coincidentally, I was working on my very large mending pile and the machine was out.  You could also do Faux Stitching with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.

~ I carefully separated the Forever and the Friends (with scissors) image so I can use them together or separately. You can also just use an Early Espresso Marker and ink up just the part you want.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
