Love is in the air at The Paper Players! For our first challenge of 2012, Lesley has selected a very fitting theme, All You Need is Love. You can create a card for a spouse, a romantic friend, a best friend, a co-worker, a family friend, a neighbor, a family member...or even a family pet! Love comes in all forms. We can't wait to see what you create. And tell me...is that old Beatle song playing in your head yet? If not, just sing this, and you will be humming it all day: "All you need love...da da da da da da! All you need is love...da da da da da da! All you need is love, Love! Love is all you need!"
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Vintage and Feminine
This finished card measure 5-1/4" square.
- Color me softly! If you wish to create a feminine flair with the colors you choose, Attic Boutique is the Designer Paper for you! A softly patterned Daffodil Delight heart highlights this card, along with a subtle script and floral patterned heart in Pool Party and Soft Suede. Add these to a beautiful Soft Suede ornate patterned paper, and you have the recipe for femininity!
- Double the bow and double the wow! A double Pool Party Seam Binding bow adds another feminine touch, especially when paired with Stampin' Up!'s new Trinket Hearts!
- Sweet heart! Doesn't your sweetheart deserve a sweet heart? Simply outline the heart with Basic Pearl strips and add a Basic Pearl center.
- A lovely sentiment! Flag one end and curl the other for a lovely touch to any sentiment...and don't forget the Basic Pearls! As for me, I free hand the snip, and use the round file from the Distressing Essentials Kit to create my curls.
- Classy Cupid! Colored with Blush Blossom, our little Roman god of Love sports Dazzling Diamond wings and pearl ends on his bow!

(And help us wish Brady the Boy luck as he performs at 10:50 this morning in the MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) competition in Kalamazoo, MI. For those of you who love classical trumpet music, he is performing 30 minutes of selections from Hummel, Bach and Jolivet. Regardless of the outcome, we are very proud that he is representing the state of Illinois in the Brass section of the competition.)
