LOVE to Work That Title!

Hi Paper Issues Friends!

Amanda here, and boy oh boy did I LOVE everyone's large titles last month!
 Such a fantastic effort from everyone who played along!
And speaking of love.....

The challenge for this month is inspired by Valentine's Day & the month of love!

Work your title 
 & feature the word 'love', or  'heart'
 have a heart icon in the title. 
use a romantic song name as your project title! 

With so many options & all those fabulous new lines in the Paper Issues store, this challenge should be tons of fun!

Here's what I created,

"Dream Love"

Isn't this delicate and pretty?!!  Adore my big dreamer girl!
I've used the stunning American Crafts 1Canoe2,  Hazelwood collection.
I absolutely love the florals and gingham patterns in Hazelwood, but it's those super shiny, glossy gold thickers for my title that win me over!  Love, indeed!

Here's a close up of my 'love' title.....

So shiny! I love the cursive script font too!
The other part to my title 'Dream' is also from the Thickers in this collection too, and is such a soft mint green that it was tricky to capture......

So it's very soft, but boy oh boy is it pretty in real life! 
I also created my layout with a bit of fussy cutting too, as I just LOVE to cut up all the pretty flowers!

Super pretty!
I hope you'll play along with this fun title challenge!
 Before you get started, here's some absolutely stellar inspiration from our talented team!

First up is Kelly with this super loved up layout using Crate Paper's, Heart Day collection! I just adore how she has used the heart icon as the 'o' in her hello title! Fabulous creating!!! 
(& all those cacti! More hearts from me!)

Pol has created this stunning layout of her boys; repeating her 'love' title to form a heart shape! Wow! Such a clever idea and looks so striking too! 

Ali has chosen the lyrics of a song her Father In Law wrote with his wife for her title - Naww! What a beautiful, heartfelt sentiment for such a beautiful page! Love this!

 Lisa has created this incredibly beautiful layout of her elegant danseur!
I love how she's used the die cut ephemera to form her title, 'love whatever happens' - simply gorgeous!

Next is Rachel and she's wowing us with another supersized cut file title, "LOVE LOVE LOVE"
 Big title, big impact! So awesome!

From a super large title, to a sweet, tiny one!
  Raechelle uses a cute centered tag for her title, "Love". 
Delicate and divine just like the precious baby in her photos! *sigh* So beautiful!

Annelie uses the word 'heart' in her title, and not to be corny, but I really Heart This! Those Thickers are from American Crafts and really make her page pop! Fabulous!

Elodie has taken the challenge to a whole new level by using 3 of the title options for her layout! The word love, song lyrics & heart icons all feature on her pretty page, wow! Loving those layers and that Frenchie silhouette too!

Devra has also used a song title for her fabulous layout, 'Endless Love'! I adore those Thickers - so shiny and glittery! Perfect for her pretty page!

Cat also went for a shiny title for her beautiful layout! Love the script on those solid gold Thickers - absolutely stunning!

And last, but definitely not least, 
Stacie is sharing this utterly gorgeous number! She's doubled up using a heart icon in her love title - just perfect!!!
