There are 3 parts of family memory keeping that are part of the crafting/scrapbooking world. First is Living History, what is happening now, the trip to the zoo, last years family reunion etc. Second, memories from days gone by, our ancestors, where they came from and how their experiences helped to shape us into who we are today, and finally staying in touch with the family that we have now, but don't see as often. I would like to spend a little time each week on all 3 of these.
This is for my mother, her favorite color in the world is purple, so of course her valentine had to be purple too. I just happen to have the best mother on the planet, so I really hope she likes this, fortunately, she's a mom... so even if I had used a box of crayons she would love it :)
I just picked up The Chateau Lavender stack from DCWV and I thought it would work perfectly for the card that I wanted to make. I kept it pretty simple, the paper was so beautiful I just added the stamp on the front, the little metal heart used to be a locket, but I broke it in half and took the loop off, I love how it turned out.
For the inside I used pale yellow cardstock and lined the bottom and the left with sheer yellow ribbon, then I cut out part of the same paper I had used on the front, I inked it and put it on top of the ribbon, then I added the bow, using the same ribbon I had put under the flowers.
