My Sweet Valentines
Ever have one of those days when you have something in mind and it just won't work the way you intended? Well, that was the other day for me. I masked that heart and stamped the kids like three times! See the corner? That's covering up a smudge, but I was NOT going to do it again! LOL. Of course, I was trying to beat the mailman so that didn't help either. Anyway, not super pleased with how this one turned out, but it's done and on it's way to the grandparents.
The heart image is from a new set in the Occasions Mini called Just Celebrate, and it's available March 1st. The Hodgepodge is also from the new Styled Silver Hodgepodge kit. Oh, man, that mini is going to break me. I want it all!!!
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Just Celebrate, All in the Family, Family Phrases, Happy Heart Day.
Paper: Spring Fling Designer Paper, Real Red, Regal Rose, Shimmery White.
Ink: Palette Noir Black, Copics.
Other: Cuttlebug, Hearts Embossing Folder, Styled Silver Hodgepodge Kit, Real Red Brads, Photo Corner Punch, Circle Punch, Grosgrain ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
Okay... one more thing to show you. Of course the 14th snuck up on me.... like always. My sweet friend Bev sent me these adorable mailboxes last year... or maybe the year before (mommy brains) because I am Target deprived. I used some retired Stampin' Up designer paper, the new Styled Silver Hodgepodge and the Flower Fusion flowers to jazz it up. Oh, and the rub ons that you can get for FREE right now during SAB. :) Have I told you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Rub Ons? *wink* I used the Crop-a-dile to make the hole for the mail flag.... easy peasy. For the lid, I just used the poker from the Crafter's Tool Kit to make the holes for the brads to hold the hodgepodge piece. I'm going to get some more done today. I will fill them with candy for teachers.
Okay.. back in a few for more Blogaversary BLOG CANDY!!! Have a great day everyone!!
