I was so excited and honoured when I was asked to be a Guest Designer for the New Moon hop. I knew I’d have to bring my A- game after a very long hiatus in the TTIC weekly challenges (after formerly participating in every one!). I love these ladies and what TTIC has become over the past year.
I pondered and pondered over what I would do. I wanted the project to represent New Moon well; and y’all know I’m Team Edward *swoon* but New Moon really is about Jacob and Bella.
Although Jacob drove me batty for most of the series, I can appreciate his love for Bella and their friendship.
My project may not be as eye-catching as some others, but it is deep with meaning.
I wanted lots of layers to represent the layers of love and friendship between Jacob and Bella.
I wanted straight edges; Jacob feels his love for Bella is simple and straightforward and without the complications of her love for Edward.
I wanted knots to symbolize the tie that Bella and Jacob will always have to each other.
I wanted a sentiment to express the commitment Jacob makes to Bella.
I didn’t want it to be fussy; neither Jacob nor Bella are.
Jacob literally follows Bella off a cliff- how perfect is this quote?? It’s from a book of Quotes for scrapbooking and I’ve used them before for friendship cards.
Card base is SU Very Vanilla with layers of SU Chocolate Chip and SU Kraft paper. Brown Satin ribbon is from Michaels.
Next stop on the hop is my fellow Stampin Sistah Leigh Ann who is guaranteed to have something awesome waiting for you.
I hope you all enjoy the movie; I was so busy with work, I totally dropped the ball on getting tickets for tonight, so I’ll have to wait a little bit to see it. Until then I’m living vicariously though all of you!
Happy New Moon Friday!!
Ciao for now,
