A Touch of Romance Tin

Here's another project from Andrea Walford's online class "A Touch of Romance". Scroll down to the previous post if you missed the first project. If you are interested in registering for the class check out this page on Andrea's blog. This was the first project that Andrea shares in the class and it's my favourite of all the projects. For this project I really stylized it my own way to make it exactly the way I wanted and Andrea encourages you to do so. Also, if you don't have the tin, she offers a different but similar project/template. I combined the two different projects to create this one. I am actually going to be giving the completed project to Grant later so I'm not sharing much information on what goes inside other than these little inserts. I'm trying not to let him see it "in person" until he gets it because I always find that pictures don't do projects justice (especially 3D items when you can't see all angles).

Stamps: SU A Happy Heart, Lots of Thoughts
Ink: SU Versamark, pretty in pink, chocolate chip, pink pirouette reinker (retired)
Paper: SU very vanilla, chocolate chip, pretty in pink, chocolate chip dp, sending love specialty dp
Ribbon: SU 5/8" pretty in pink satin, 5/8" chocolate chip satin, silver elastic cord
Punch: 1/2" circle punch
Misc: SU pretty in pink cordoroy button, build a brad, paper snips, crystal effects, band-aid tin
