Playing in Paradise #74

Happy Friday my Paradise Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by to see what we have for you this week.  We hope you will be inspired to create with us.

This week's challenge is all about LOVE!  Is it a wedding you're attending this month? Or perhaps your Anniversary?  I know July is usually a busy month for Anniversary cards for me.....but then so as August.

This week you are playing for the chance to win a great prize from Scrapbooker's Paradise....

Glitz – Pretty in Pink paper layers, layered stickers,Journaling stickers, title stickers and 2 teeny alphas approx  $25

I used my Copic Air Compressor and Spellbinder Heart die to create the heart frame with R85copic marker. 
Just want to show you my little set up for using my compressor.
I use a sturdy box that can prop up right.  I find it's easier to spray like this than having it flat on the table.  The box will also keep the ink from spraying all over. 

I then attached magnet sheets in the box to hold the die (cutter side up) in place while you spray. 

Check out these amazing creations for some inspiration this week.....

Such a variety of creations! You gals knocked it out of the park as usual :)
I love the peek at your set up, Merlie! The magnet backing is a genius idea.

Great tips with your spray gun. I do see quite a collection of copics in the background too. Thanks Merlie.
Nice, cards and LO's designers.
I should really get on some for upcomming weddings too.

Thank you so much for your post - I think that is a great idea with the spray gun too. I always learn good tips here.

Just a note, I find it a bit awkward navigating the challenge ... what I mean is, most challenges I visit have the links and thumbnails of the people who take the challenge show right under the original challenge post. Firstly, this creates interest and the more thumbnails you see there the more it gives inspiration. Secondly, when I wanted to visit each person to view their submissions I had to go to the linky page, then click on each person and it took me away. After visiting them I had to hit the back button. A little frustrating. Perhaps it could be made so they open in a new window.

I'm not being critical, I just believe you guys deserve much more traffic, your posts are amazing and prizes really nice!

Thanks for all you do,
