Ippity Sneak Peek #3- Winter 2010

Well Hello and Welcome to Day3 
of the Ippity Winter Release Sneak Peeks!!

We are having so much fun providing our projects to you and we appreciate you coming back to check out all the new sets.

Head to the {ippity} blog to see the snippets for today's two sets and then be sure to visit all the DT girls' blogs to see how they used the stamps from that set!  It will surely be a treat!!

For my first project I am going to show you the inside of the CD Case that I showed you yesterday.  Remember?  It looked like this...


The inside is where I could give it a very personal touch so that my husband would know how much I love him.  I used the new set called Love in Return and even a little more Music of My Heart also to complete the job.


 On the inside left of the CD case from the Love in Return set I stamped the bottom with the distressed dots border stamp and used the 10 Things I {luv} about You stamp.  I listed some of my husband's attributes that are my favorites!  I embellished the corners by masking the ornate frame and also added the swirly heart again from the Music of My Heart set.

On the inside left of the case I continued the Distressed Dots border stamp across the bottom for continuity and added the Life is a Song sentiment from Music of My Heart.  Below you can see the tags that go in the pocket shown here.



 There are three tags that fit in the pocket of the CD case that can be taken out and held for easier reading.

 Using the musical score backgrounder from the Music of My Heart and the notepage from Unity's Le Chic Vintage Scrapper's kit, I listed the songs that are contained on his CD.  I picked some special ones that send him the message I want him to hear which is that I LOVE HIM very much!

This is a picture of us dancing at our wedding.  The Life is not Measured... sentiment was perfect for this tag!  This sentiment can be found in the Love in Return set. This is one moment in my life that  I will never forget... the whole wedding day and honeymoon too were breathtaking!

 I wrote Tom a little "story" that kind of ties the theme of the CD Case and CD together for him.  I used the stamps The Story, the flourish and The End all from the Love in Return set.  

Here is what I wrote...
Songs have been an important representation in our relationship 
since the day we chose the Broken Road as our song!
It was fun picking songs for our wedding day too.
Sometimes I may not know all the words to our songs,
or even feel like singing along.
But know that your love for me makes me 
want to sing out loud!  I love you, Kelly.

Using a CD label maker program, I was able to put the picture of the front of the CD Case onto the CD so he will always be able to remember when he got it!

I hope he likes it and doesn't think all the love songs are too sappy!!  LOL!



Are you ready to see something a little lighter??

 The next project comes from the new set called   Where You Should Be...

I created this card to give to a very special person in my life.  Someone I think is fabulous!!  I used BG papers from the Sugar Rush collection and stamped the card using the open style leaves and the You are Fabulous sentiment from Where You Should Be.

I followed another sketch for this card that I got from the Master Sketches list at SCS.  This card follows SC09 as shown below...

I am having so much fun working my way through all the sketches.  I would have to say that sketch challenges are my favorites!

Here is the closeup of the embellishment grouping I created with the leaves stamp that I paper pieced using coordinating DP from the BG Sugar Rush set.  I also stamped off  before stamping the same leaves onto the sentiment panel to give it a shadowy effect.  The buttons were in my collection and I stitched them on using cream colored embroidery floss!

 
 Here is a closeup of the darling sentiment!  I can see that being used over and over again!  Love that!  The purple photo corner is made of metal and comes from American Crafts.

And here is one last look at the whole thing!  I love how the lace trim came out after I cross-stitched some orange x's into the holes that were there!!  Super cute!! I really loved that!

Thank you so much for bearing with me through these long posts and descriptions.  Unfortunately I am very detail oriented so I hate to leave out anything that I can share with you!!  I totally understand if you just zip through and look at all the pictures!!

But please make the time to go and see what the rest of the DT members have to share with you today!  We are blessed again by having two more of the Unity DT girls joining us with their awesome creations so be sure to send them all your love when you stop by!!

Here is a list of more blogs to visit...
