Hi everyone and thanks for joining me today for the "You Say It's Your Birthday" Blog Hop! If you arrived at my blog from talented Elsa of Cricutlvr, then you are in the right place. If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, please click here.
Many thanks to my talented friend, Erika, of Cricut Love for inviting me to participate in this special event. Erika has planned the hop to celebrate her daughter Ashley's birthday. Isn't this so sweet and exciting! The theme of the hop is quite exciting too! Erika's love for music by the Beatles has been instilled into her children. For this hop, Erika asked each of us to make a project based on a song by the Beatles! Whoo hoo! I love the Beatles! I was a teenager when the Beatles made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show! That has been a few years ago! lol!
I had a hard time choosing between so many great songs. I decided to use the song "Love Me Do".
The card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 white cardstock. I cut a piece of the pretty K&Company paper at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and layered it on the card. For the white mat, I cut a piece of white textured cardstock 5 1/4 x 4 inches and run it through the Cuttlebug using the Allergo folder. I love how the music notes look on the paper! All my Cricut cuts are from Cricut cartridge Sweethearts. The Love stamp is found on page 49 and is cut at 3 inches. The scallop heart is on page 72 and is cut at 2 1/4 inches. The small red heart is the heart that is cut out of the stamp. For the words, I cut Marry Me which is on page 46 using the shadow cut at 1 1/2 inch. I discarded the Marry for this project. I Do is on page 60 and was cut using the shadow cut at 1/2 inch. Just used the word Do on my project. Now I have the words of my song---Love Me Do!! Used lots of Martha Stewart inking and some foam dots to add dimension.
