LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED......DESIGNS by Carol Salisbury

Our Next Design spotlight for January is from Carol Salisbury, for me Carols work has always had a touch of romance to it so it is only natural that here amazing designs for January are full of love!


Gecko Galz products
   Seeing Red paper pkg (Drk printed paper for flower)
   Love Potion kit - Paper pk (background & inside of card) & Icons (postcard heart & Love ticket)

My stash
   Die cut heart (I used my Cameo to cut that)
   Candi's (brads)
   Pop dots
   Glitter glue
   Glossy Accents
   Red fibers
   little leaves (Really Reasonable Ribbon)
   Card stock
   Brushed Corduroy distress ink
   Irock gems

I used a brownish piece of cardstock for the card, another redish piece on top...off centered.
I topped that with one of the Love Potion papers.
I used a shimmery red paper in back of the heart die cut and added that topping it with the Love Potion Icon heart with pop dots. 
For the ticket I started out with a bead of glitter glue around the edges but wasn't happy with it so I smeared it all over. Now I was happy with that but it was a bit sticky so I added glossy accents on top which gave it some extra shine...yay bonus! I put a pop dot in the center and glue on the ends to give it a bit of a wave over the hearts.
I wrapped the fibers behind the ticket and topped it with a couple of flowers I made with a Seeing Red paper (red & cream) as well as a scrap off my desk (the pink paper), added the leaves and topped it with a black Irock gem. 
The Candi's (brad's) were added to the top.
Inside I simply matted a piece of the Love Potion papers so I can add a sweet sentiment to or a mushy letter to my hubby!


For this sweet little banner Carol used the Gecko Galz Valentine Pierotts.
