Anything but a card - Magnolia Decor frame. SBTD February Blog Hop

Welcome to the February edition of the SBTD blog hop. This month is the month of love but instead of doing a valentines project I went for a decor Item I could have on display all year round. 

Initially the Magnolia Lane bundle was not top of my list but the more projects I saw on Pinterest featuring it made me fall in love. I looked and looked at this image and said to myself its screaming to be paper toled so that's what I did. I initially started with 4 images but ended up needing parts of another 2 to complete this flower. Working from a full image upwards until there was no more layers left.

Each image was coloured as similar as I could make them and then I added it to a 6x4 window box frame  that could sit on my shelf in the craft room. The flower and leaves were coloured with blends and looks just like the Magnolia that was growing at our first home. The sentiment is white embossed on Mossy meadow Cardstock that has been sent through the Subtle Dynamic Embossing folder for some extra texture.

Now without further ado please head on over to see what Andy & Sarah have to share with us.

  5. Did you know there is a 12 word sentence you can say to your man... that will induce deep emotions of love and impulsive appeal to you buried inside his heart?

    That's because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, adore and guard you with all his heart...

    12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Desire Response

    This impulse is so built-in to a man's mind that it will drive him to try harder than before to take care of you.

    Matter of fact, fueling this influential impulse is absolutely mandatory to having the best possible relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You will immediately notice him expose his soul and mind for you in such a way he's never expressed before and he will distinguish you as the only woman in the world who has ever truly interested him.
