Are you ready for Valentines or like me still searching for the perfect idea? I'm on a BIG Valentine hunt trying to find the latest and greatest Valentine to knock the socks off the Prince. I'm coming up pretty dry but do have a few fun ideas I may give more thought too. Seriously, he ALWAYS blows me away. This time I want to surprise him.
About 1145pm last night I had this GRAND idea as I looked over my shoulder and could see a big pile of packing paper I unloaded from my latest Stampin' Up! treasure box. This crazy time of night is when the BEST ideas in my pea brain fire off. I don't know why, but it's always been this way. There is one more time- in the shower. Nothing makes me more mad than having a GREAT idea in the shower because no sooner do I get out the idea is GONE! Please tell me this happens to you too?
I pulled out my Heart Collection Framelits and used that ginormous heart with scallops. Well, it's not that ginormous but it sure is pretty. It's perfect for a project like this.
Once I had my Heart Die Cut, I took my little sewing machine and sewed the hearts together. This is when I realized I did such a fantastic job of sewing that I didn't leave an opening to stuff something inside. True blonde moment. No biggie. I can still write something special on the back.
I decided to cut another heart using Basic Black cardstock. It fits just right centered between my sewing. Using Whisper White craft ink I stamped the fun swirly image from Great Sport in the center and heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder to create that "Chalkboard" look I am so addicted to right now. It's so easy and fun.
Below you can see all the fun products I used for this little Valentine.
It was a quick project believe it or not and I think they would make darling Valentines for my little girl.
