Final Love Bandit Project

It's Valentine's week and in celebration here is my last project using the Bo Bunny Love Bandit Deluxe kit. Now you would imagine from the photographs that clearly I live in a sunny, warm place since my girls are in shorts for a Valentine themed layout, but you would be mistaken. Having been pounded for the last week and a half with two record breaking snowstorms, I just simply could not scrap another wintery picture. Give me sun, give me warmth!!!

I picked up the Bo Bunny die cut sheet for the background of my layout. I love it's unusual scalloped pattern. I created the heart on the background using the "Quilted Background" technique, for which you can find a step by step tutorial here, on my blog.

For the ruffled edge of the heart, I did the following: I cut 3/4" strips and used my scalloped deco scissors along one side. I then pleated the strips at various intervals. It took about 4-5 twelve inch strips to complete the heart. After gluing the pleated strips around the edge, I added the faux stitching on top.

The title work, "You Melt my heart" was a free download from the Bo Bunny blog. I copied it onto transparency and cut out the words to put around my layout.

Here's a close up of the "Quilted Background" and ruffled edges. I created a two-tone "Faux Pearl Swirl" to coordinate with my layout colors and accented with some paper roses created from Love Bandit paper scraps. The "Faux Pearl Swirl" technique is on my blog, here.

How are you celebrating Valentine's this week?
