Hello! I hope you are doing well this wonderful Wednesday.
Just yesterday I tucked away the last of the winter type decorations (for going up to the attic) and have been thinking about things to create for Valentine's Day this year. I haven't actually made it up into the attic to pull out what I already have(or to put away the bag I just packed up, shhhhh). That would probably be a good idea, huh? Tomorrow will probably be the day. Today I was working on this card:this card I saw on Courtney Lane Designs. This is a fun blog to read if you are interested in seeing projects made with the Cricut.
Anyway, I thought it would be cute to make this card (well 2 of them) to tuck into the girls' lunch boxes for Valentine's Day. The only thing is, I really, really liked the look with the polka dot paper. Only, I don't have any polka dot paper like that. And neither do the local stores apparently, I looked. But I DO have PSE and lots of digi supplies. So, I searched and found this overlay by Katie the Scrapbook Lady (she doesn't sell her designs anymore, though). She has a great blog if you are interested in checking it out. So, I printed off a sheet of the dotted paper. Yay! The cut is from Paper Lace and is cut at 3 1/2. Then I tried to pen-stitch with a white Signo pen. Um, I'm pretty rusty at it, so please forgive if it doesn't look all that great. I cut little bits of Holiday Red cardstock to glue behind the open hearts and snipped away the excess. There were solid black hearts and I decided to fill them with red Stickles. I added a bit of pink Stickles to the small open heart after I glued the pieces together. And I popped the heart with pop dots, although you can't tell in the picture. All in all, I'm pleased with this little project. I hope the girls will be pleasantly surprised (and not embarrassed).
I have more ideas that I want to try, the trick is to actually get to them. I hope to do so very soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
