Love this Wreath!

I love a few things in life. Cherry Cobbler and Black are one of my favorite color combos! I love the Timeless Portrait paper that was retired last year. The material wasn't retired (yeah!!). I love the Valentines Season, too! 
I love seasonal wreaths and celebrating the holidays.

Combine all this love... and I created this Wreath that I LOVE!! (Or should I call is a Wreath of Love?). With a simple cutting of our Timeless Portrait fabric and then simply tying knots and bows. This, too, for the Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle Ribbon from the Holiday Mini, and the retired Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in addition to the Crochet Ribbon.  







You can see it looks lovely on its own. My neighbor Sage agreed that it just needed a little more.



 



With the Hearts Collection Framelits that layer so perfectly I used the large scalloped heart in Basic Black for the base with the Big Shot. With the Simply Scored Board and the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Scallop Punch I creased these Lollies/Rosettes. The smaller heart in Cherry Cobbler paper centers just perfectly! Adding a dash of warm bling with the Large Adhesive Backed Pearl to the center ties it up.

Note that the four holes were threaded with a retired grosgrain ribbon so that I could tie it on. I did this before using the Hot Glue gun to adhere the Lolly to the hearts.





How can You use the scraps in your life? What would you use to create a wreath?

I hope these scraps of ribbon and fabric inspire you to ring in the love. Go had wad, ring my belllllllll... Ring in some love along with it!

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
