Love Is in the Air

I managed to make just a few Valentine crafts this year, including this card that I sent to a special Valentine.

I started with bright pink felt for the background and layered on fabric and lace scraps and a sheet music printed fiber paper.

The images are from Graphic 45 – the Sweet Sentiments and A Place in Time collections.

I typed a sentiment on my vintage typewriter and added glitter to all the flowers.
 
I hope your Valentine is thinking sweet thoughts of you on Friday!

Valentine ATCs

I’m participating in a Valentine ATC swap, so I got busy in my craft room with the beautiful Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments and Place in Time collections.

Here are the ATCs I created.

They all follow the same design layout, but each is unique.

I used the adorable images from the Graphic 45 papers.

I layered the images on vintage sheet music and other pretty papers.

It was a great way to use up some scraps.


And each got an ample does of glitter!

Happy Valentines Day

I don’t usually go overboard with holiday celebrations other than Christmas, but this year I will celebrating Valentine’s Day at the happiest place on earth!

How appropriate that I made this card for Husband for this special day.

I used the same layout that I used on my other Valentines, but with a more grown-up, romantic feel. I cut the globe from a sheet of Pink Paislee paper and added the glitter heart.
 
I hope you’re having a sweet and special Valentine’s Day.

Be My Valentine

I made a little stash of Valentines for all my little friends.

I used a variety of papers to create the background, including a vintage doily. Then I added sweet Valentine stickers from Michaels.

Valentine Doll

I recently took a class from the wonderful Ann-Denise Anderson. We made spun cotton Valentine dolls. Everyone’s was so unique and we all had a great time.

Here is my doll:

We learned how to make a basic armature, then wrapped it in sticky wet cotton.

Then we painted the girls and dressed them in little crepe paper outfits.

And decorated little “cakes” for them to stand on.

Here are just a few of the other projects from the class.

Lisa made an adorable kitty for a friend. Now I want one for each of my sweet furbabies!

 And this little lady is perfectly poised.

This one looks like Marie Antoinette. She was stunning in person!

And I thought she looked like a foofy cake topper.

Everyone’s projects were fantastic, and so much nicer looking in person than my photos captured.
