So big and yet so little

Oh man, I know I should be ashamed, and I am! I haven't been posting in two weeks! Haven't scrapbooked much either to tell the truth. Fiancé had food poisoning and got a one-week sick leave! I'm not all that sure it was food poisoning since I haven't felt well for a week.... I think he passed whatever he had on to me! ANYWAY! We're all fine now and I decided to scrapbook this week end!

So here is a page I made using the Sunday Sketch by Studio Calico.

 As you can see, it was originally a 8x11 or so, but I made it 12x12! I should try another format some time...

So, here is my take on it:



 And would it be a real post without a few close-ups?


Used WeRMM baker's twine, Sizzix dies for
the hearts. PP is BG's "Indie Bloom" 



Small letters are Lily bee design, big ones are "Jewelry box"
Thickers. Cut out a heart out of vellum to put them together and
hand stitched in the middle.
Paper tape is Cavallini & Co.

"Genuine" is from a "Tiny Type" sticker
sheet from Cosmo Cricket. Brads are from BG.
The shape is a Spellbinder die.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS LO

* The grey coloured backgroung by Bazill!
* The use of the baker's twine! I love the result :)
* Used my Big Shot quite a lot for this!


STASH USED

* The vellum
* The brads!

Thanks for stopping by!!
