I'm loving the excitement that you've already shared about my newest stamp set, lOvE songs. It's so nice to hear your thoughts and feeling! Thank You! I hope you are also enjoying the musical background and links... it's been so fun to put together for you! (for those who are new, this set will be released on Dec. 15th through Papertrey Ink.)
Unforgettable- I first heard this song when young but it really stuck when Natalie Cole did a remake/remix of her father's song. (here is a You Tube link to the video!) I instantly fell in love. Both Father (Nat King Cole) and Daughter have amazing voices that posses a depth of soul that is profound. I'm a HUGE fan of classic R&B... I sometime feel I was born in the wrong era! LOL!
When I thought of "unforgettable" things in my life... in love that is... the first kiss with my husband came to mind. It was on our 3rd date and he literally swept me off my feet. I knew in that moment that I loved him. He took me back to that same spot a month later and asked me to marry him! People thought we were nuts but it's been 16 years now... he is still my best friend that I deeply love and his love for me is unforgettable. *sigh*
Here is a fun pocket card and treat bag using the outline Kiss & solid Kiss together!
This card also previews the "xo" strip image that is perfect for creating backgrounds for any loving occasion.
The Kiss outline image can also be colored in with markers or watercolored!
P. S I love you- Another nostalgic song that hearkens back to the mid 1930's when Rudy Vallee first recorded it. It's been remade ever since then but such greats as Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme and Billie Holiday. I think they all do the song justice. I love the version that Bette Midler released in 1991 for the "For the Boys" soundtrack. (it's a great soundtrack!) Here is a audio clip from You Tube. There is also a scene from the movie on there that is a direct clip where she sings live to the soldiers after the lights go out about 3 minutes into the clip she starts up with the song. She's a little swanky in the first 3, LOL!) this song reminds me of long distance love... I've experienced it and the power of a written letter is incredible.
An image for this song was a no-brainer for me... an envelope was a must! I wanted to note that the little heart in the envelope is the same one that is used for the sand pail...more bang for your buck!
I created this ensemble with a masculine feel... It's something I will give my husband too.
The Heart tin holds little envelopes made with this envelope punch . Each little envelope contains reasons why I love him.. I didn't have time to make a million envelopes though. ;) Image wise, I made sure that the envelope image would also fit with the smallest of the Marvy Clever Lever Extra Jumbo scalloped Rectangle punch (yellow one), You know me... I love coordinating punches!
Well, I've shared 3 songs so far. Any guesses as to what other song inspirations the set holds? :) any guesses as to what song the Ice Cream cone goes with? Come on... make a guess! I will share a project tomorrow using that fun image!
