{Hearts} for You

When Lily Munchkin was here, we spent some time crafting. One of the projects we were worked on was Valentine hearts for everyone.

Here is the heart that she made for me (I think she got tired after making several, which is why I have stickers and no other embellishments 🙂

Here are the hearts that I made. She didn’t want one of my hearts because I made it “ugly” by putting ink on it.

We used up scraps and whatever bits and bobs I had laying there in front of us.

Valentine Spoolies

I participated in the Vintage Dragonfly’s Valentine Spoolie swap. My swap partner was the Dragonfly herself, JoAnne.

Here is the spoolie I made for her. I used a vintage wooden spool (with the pink thread still on it) and embellished with lace and flower trim. Then I added the sweethearts, who are sitting in a garden of paper flowers under their parasol.

And this is the spoolie that JoAnne made for me:

She is precious! All of the sparkle is just perfect, and she is displayed on my entry hutch, which I always foof up for each holiday.
Thanks, JoAnne, for another great swap!

Happy Valentine’s Day

I hope you have a loving day with your sweetheart.

Here’s a card I made for mine. The background is a piece of Jenni Bowlin paper layered with a scrap of Bo Bunny Dots paper (leftover from the Christmas cards). I cut a heart from an old tablecloth scrap and layered it with an old wallpaper scrap.

A metallic paper medallion, tag, floral pin, and some stitching complete the card.

Valentine Twinchies

This month’s twinchie theme was Valentine’s Day. I made a few different styles and was able to use up some of my scraps from card making.

Valentine ATC

I made another Valentine ATC while I was waiting for my swap ATCs to arrive.

I made the heart using paperclay. I flattened the clay and cut out a heart. Then I stamped on the heart while it was still wet and set it overnight to dry.

Once dry, I inked the heart before adhering it to the background, which I created with patterned paper, scrap of trim, and stitching.
Then I added a button and baker’s twine to the heart. I’m out of paperclay now, but have more ideas and want to use some cookie cutters with it.
