{ Love is in the air at Embellish-Online }

Bittersweet collection by Basic Gray is so beautiful. Look at all those beautiful colors, my favorite. 6x6 pad is perfect for cards and projects and there are two sheets of each pattern. Chipboard shapes, buttons and brads add a perfect touch to your projects. The gallery goes live today, February 5, and you can see all the beautiful creations from the Design Team. I used Fiskars shape template for my heart, but you can use a die cut, hand draw a heart or trace from a magazine or clothing. I wanted large scallops so I used the heart shape, I just traced it on the back of paper and cut out. The heart shape is embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder and I inked the edges.
I adhered the chipboard heart to patterned paper and cut it out. I wanted it to stand out against the pink paper. I love adding two buttons together for dimension. Here, I used Hemp cord to tie them to the ribbon bow. I bought these little note pads at a discount store (5 for $1). The cardstock covers front, spine and back. I adhered the pad to the back and embellished the front. These are so simple and fun, perfect for a gift. Michelle Wooderson did Mini Christmas notebooks and I loved the idea. I write things down all the time and have little note pads everywhere. I made chocolate heart lollipops using Wilton lollipop molds. I wrapped them in cellophane and tied ribbon around the base. I wanted them to look like flowers so I added a scalloped circle, flower and heart beads. I painted the clay flower pot to match the paper. I embellished the top of the pot with scalloped patterned paper, chipboard and buttons. I used Martha Stewart border punch. I used flower foam to hold the lollipops in the pot. I added crinkle paper to cover the foam. Once the chocolate is gone you can use this again next year. A perfect gift for an office or a centerpiece for a party. I used white chocolate mint and my room smells like it! I added sprinkles to the bottom of the mold before chocolate.
