Your Love

Today I’m sharing my project for The Crafty Scrapper’s Valentine’s Day challenge. I wanted to do something a little different, so I used the Maya Road Petite Pallet and turned it into a little house collage.

Sweet Valentine

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? I feel like I finally finished getting the house cleaned up from Christmas. I did not get a single decoration out for Valentine’s Day, but I did manage to make a couple of cards. Here is one I sent to a special Valentine.

I added sequins, beads, and old buttons to give it some more character.

And I searched through my stash for the perfect piece of tatting.

The hardest part was stitching the front and back together with the ruffled trim. I think I need to watch some video tutorials to get the hang of it a little better before I attempt another one.
