A Fancy Heart

It has been awhile since I have blogged! We were visiting my parents last week and then as soon as we got back we all got this really bad cold/flu bug!

I'm excited to be getting better and I'd like to show you how I made this "fancy heart"...




1. Cut a heart out of white copy paper.


2. Cut an assortment of strips of paper (I used papers from the March kit from Scrapbookers Clubhouse)


3. Glue on the strips of paper to cover the copy paper heart. This is the back view.

The front view.


4. Once dry cut off the extra pattern paper to reveal your heart.


5. Apply a thin bead of glue around your heart.


6. Sprinkle glitter on top of the glue. Shake off extra and allow to dry.



You are now ready to add your heart to a card or layout.
For mine I simply tied a strip of organza ribbon around the heart, tucked in a large ticket and a chipboard clock. I finished it off with a "love" tag, a safety pin, and a pink button for good measure.

There Once



My hubs wrote the poem/song and I was inspired to decorate a Maya Road bird book using it!

Happy ♥ Day!

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

Happy...

Today is my sister's birthday :)
Happy Birthday Tam ♥

*****

And my hubs bought a Cricut!!!!

If you have a Cricut you have to check out this amazing product...it's software that you install on your computer and you can then use the fonts you have to make your cuts with!!! Even fancy Wingdings. You can even create your own SVG files (using a separate program which is a free download). The program costs as much as one cartridge, but you can alway download free fonts and fancy flourishes and you'll have hundreds of cartridges!

Heart Garland

I wanted to decorate my daughter's mini tree for Valentines Day ♥

Instructions:

• punch out hearts
• pre-poke two holes using a push pin
• using your needle that is threaded with embroidery floss go up through one of the holes
• go down through the next
• come up through the first hole (this will lock your heart in place)
The finished garland...


This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12
