Final Valentine Tag Book Pages

The last pair of Valentine Tag Book pages!

Three techniques were used on this page - Cuttlebug Embossed Grungeboard, Drunken Scotch and the Pocket Heart. (I still owe you a tutorial for the Drunken Scotch)

Cuttlebug embossing on Grungeboard is just like paper and adds a lot of dimension to your project! Before embossing I direct to paper inked the wings with SU Soft Sky. After embossing I brayered and sponged on Choc Chip.

The Pocket Heart was one of the Technique Challenges from SCS - inside the heart I placed 10 of the things that I love about my SIL/Best Friend!

Some of the steps: (a) stamps - Impression Obsession, things & about (TAC), (b) paper - Wanted & Hey Sugar (Cosmo Cricket), SU Choc Chip, Pretty in Pink, © distress, sponge (d) 10 things inside the heart were computer generated, used SU oval punch and copper eyelet to create the end decoration - this was all wire/ beaded together and I added a Drunken Scotch Grungeboard Key

Both pages in the book - song, Thank You for Being a Friend ~Andrew Gold:

This is the end of the 14 days of Valentines that I created for my sister-in-law and very best friend. I can’t even begin to tell you what a special women she is! I thought I would share the 10 items in the heart pouch:

10. Ability to Forgive
9. Giving
8. You Make Me Feel Special
7. Caring
6. My Creative Pal
5. Tough
4. Quirky Humor
3. Love to Shop
2. My Cackle Chick
1. That I am Your Best Friend

I hope all you of have a special friend in your life (I am just lucky that she married my brother!!!)

Thanks for visiting!

just wandering around your blog and see this thing you call "drunken scotch"... It looks really cool and I was wondering how you did it. Do you have a tutorial?
