DH creates his first Golf Two-Page LO

My DH Angel had mentioned to me that he would scrapbook with me someday.....

He is an avid golfer and a couple of days ago announced to me that he was ready for his first Layout!

This is what he came up with!!

All I did for him is cut on the Cricut, the rest he would just ask me how do I? and he would.
He also asked me to critique, so I said that we could improve on the O and F and since purple is his favorite color and the marker did not work well on the chipboard letters, he has since made them look better by using Smooch purple paint (I had forgotten I had some).

I hope you can leave comments - He is going to be checking to see if he received any, trust me, the man works for praise!

Heartstrings Hearts and Angels Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to another Heartstrings Design Team Blog Hop!!
This time our theme is Hearts and Angels! with stamps from our sponsor My Heart Stamps 4 You

If you are here I hope you just arrived from visiting the Sweet Madison from FunkyCards if not, START from the beginning! with Shelley at Heartstrings

I created a Card Set of four cards and a folder. My initial thought was to create everything in Black & White, but decided to add a bit of red!

The folder was created using a 11 x 8 1/2 piece of white card stock.
From the horizontal side you score and fold at 2 1/4. If you need detail instruction email me.
You end up with a 5 1/2 wide x 6 1/4 tall folder so your A2 size cards fit perfectly.
The four cards are A2 size.
I stamped four of the My Heart Stamps 4 You stamps on white Georgia Pacific card stock. Since I was going for the black and white I decided not to color.

Each card was embellished a bit different.

I tried cutting the wings with vellum, but could not get my Expression to behave!

Card stock - Red, White, Black - The Paper Co.
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large for Sentiment and Disney font
Embossing Folders - Sizzix Dots, Flowers; Cuttlebug 5x7 Kassie's Brocade, Heart Blocks, Textile
Paper Dolls Dress Up for all Wings cut at 4 1/2 and 4
Punches - ek Le Heart in Heart Chain (new extra large punches)
Crop-A-Dile II and red heart eyelets
Ribbon - Red and B&W
Buttons - Red Heart
Red Bling
Black Hemp
