Happy early Valentines to me!

Hello,Happy Wednesday!
I am so happy you dropped by because I am really excited about my project today. I always say I am going to make an album for my own personal use but seem to never find the time. Well over the weekend I decided to make one for the people in my life that capture a piece of my heart...Happy Valentines Day  to me! (I hope I can complete it by then, lol)

For the album I used Michael's Chip Board Journal for only $1.50, can't beat that! The sentiment is a mixed word owl stamp set from Getting Cricky with Kristal Andrews. The heart is a stamp  I embossed with my new Stampendous Pearlustre Carnelian embossing powder. The owl was from Recollections cling stamps.

The letters that make the word Love are from my new Tim Holtz Ideaology Grunge blocks! Would you like to know how I made the scrolls??  I stamped a calender on a piece of white cardstock 3"by 3" with gold embossing powder then stamped and embossed the red arrow. I cut the calender into 1"by 3" sections and rolled it! I covered it in a gloss to harden it.  I love my heart doily!!!!

I added googly eyes to my owl and embossed mushrooms near the bottom. The base of the card was painted with snow (Titanium) white acrylic paint mixed with a Pearlizing Medium which gives it a shimmer and a shine.  I know you can't see it in the photos, I wish you could, it is gorgeous!

Over the weekend I had a blast at Michael's Store, here are some pictures of my new haul!!!! 
The prices would blow your mind!!!!

The flowers , lace ribbons and boarders from Recollection were only a $1.00 ea.!!! Reg. $ 7.99ea.

 The recollection flowers in the bottle below were Reg. $11.99ea. and I got them for a whopping $1.49ea!!!!! Embossing powders were $2.99 Just crazy!

 This  has to be my favorite buy " Grunge board blocks!"...I have been wanting these so long but just wouldn't pay $17.99.  I got  them for $6.99!!!  I got two of them for less than the regular price.
I got so many deals but just couldn't share them all but wanted to give you an idea so you will all run to Michael's this week!!! LOL

May the bird of paradise fly up the crack of your nose and may an elephant caress you with his toes... hehe!
