International Ambassadors – Laced with Love Blog Hop


International Ambassadors – Laced With Love Blog Hop

The International Ambassadors are blog hopping again!  We had so much fun with our last informal Blog Hop featuring the Victorian dies we thought we would like to inspire you all again - this time we are using the Laced with Love Dies - and you are going to love them!!   I hope you are getting to know us and and seeing our different styles - thank you so much for all of the lovely comments you left on my Blog - you made my day!




  If you came here from Christina's Blog - you are in the right place.

We have chosen to use dies from the Laced with Love collection – we thought these work beautifully to coincide with Valentine's weekend.  It is so much fun to create with them, as you will see as you stop by each Designer's Blog:

2. Adhere to precut card base in white cardstock using liquid glue.
3. Adhere scraps together to fill in the middle of the DieCut piece using double sided tape - NOTE: I really wanted to use this paper but only had scraps - improvising here! 
4. Adhere layers to precut card base using Crafty Foam Tape.

















5. Cut/emboss one(1) Blooming Collection #2 in blue patterned paper

6. Cut photo slightly smaller and adhere behind the frame, popping up using Crafty Foam Tape.
