On the first page, I used the CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridge, "Art Philosophy" to cut out the word "sweet" at 2 inches. I then took a flourish stamp and my tulip ink and highlighted each letter. I used the "swiping" technique on the "Love" square. Swiping means to take your stamp and "swipe" it across your ink pad. It gives it a "brushed" look. The stamp set I used is called "Love Ya" from 2011 as well. The hearts, I stamped and cut out to add to my page. I scallop cut the white paper to give it that "sweet" polish, adding bitty pearls (Z1707, $2.95) on every other scallop.
Speaking of buttons....CTMH announced to it's consultants that it will be discontinuing it's button line after the next catalog. That catalog runs until June. They have an EXCELLENT price on buttons, so pick some up by clicking on my "shop with me" button on the right of this post. 72 assorted buttons for $5.95 and they are gorgeous and of course color-coordinated!
