Give a little love

February is the month of Love, a month that we always celebrate here at LIITD!!

I wanted to share a little extra love with all of you this month so thought I’d give you an extra project or two!

When Lori announced that she’s making custom LIITD Laser Cut Chipboard I was over the moon excited.  So excited in fact it drew me to come back and join you all here!

Today I’m featuring chipboard from the January release….have you seen it?  If not RUN to the store, it’s online too if you prefer to shop from home in this crazy cold weather.

Sadly my very good friend lost her dog a couple weeks ago.  It’s a very sad time as any pet parent will understand.  I wanted to do something special for her to remember Zoe, and give her a little extra love.

Isn’t she a beautiful girl?!  She was such a sweet thing, with her short little legs!

The Stacked Love with Paw was the perfect piece for this gift.  I used Old Gold embossing powder on all of the chipboard pieces.  To bring out the paw print I used some pink Distress Embossing powder on paper to really highlight the paw print.

We all know that puppies love to kiss & cuddle, so I couldn’t resit adding the XOXO chipboard as well.  As you can see the original piece was too big for my project so I cut it in half.

Ladies do not be afraid to cut up those LIITD Laser Cut Chipboard pieces and make them your own!

If you look you’ll also see around the flowers I added pieces from the Twig & Berry chipboard.  Once again I cut the stems off to fit in and around my flowers as I needed.

The base of this project is bits & pieces I pulled from my stash, adding layers of cardboard between the layers adds to the dimension of the overall canvas.

I hope that this little gift gives my friend a beautiful reminder of the puppy she loved so much!

I hope you have all found a way to share some love this month, big or small it doesn’t matter.

Keep watching, you never know when another surprise post might appear!

It’s Frosty Out There!

I don’t know about where you are but it is FREEZING here! Perfect weather though to lock myself in my craft space and have some fun!

If you haven’t heard the Online Store is back up with lots loaded already!!!

Also Lori has this adorable Snowman Kit available for pre-order, it’s custom designed and cut just for Love Is In The Details!

You can order it HERE.

Earlier this week a pizza box full of fun new goodies was waiting for me when I got home, including one of the Snowman kits!

It comes with all the MDF and papers you need to put it together…

Of course you could try something a little more adventurous, just set those papers  aside (don’t toss them though they can be used on another project).

As always I was up for more of a challenge, and wanted to make him unique so I pulled out lots of fun supplies and grunged him up!

I covered his body with Finnabair Platinum Crackle Paste, once it was dry I sprayed Walnut Distress Spray over top to get in all those little cracks and age him a bit more.

I ran the paper that came for the hat through my Bigshot using a gear embossing folder.  Then I rubbed different colours of Finnabair wax to bring out the texture!

The arms and scarf were covered in Distress Embossing powder…I LOVE the texture that embossing powder gives, and so sad you can’t buy it anymore.

I added a bunch of gears, using some of the custom LIITD laser cut chipboard and Tim Holtz gears.  Even used them for his eyes!

He was so fun to make, taking this great kit and making it my own!

Lori has re-opened this kit so hurry and order yours before they are all gone!
