Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Valentine Treat

Whew, that title is a mouthful!! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! This cute little Valentine treat is on the agenda for "crafts" at the nursing home this morning. Not only will the ladies be making them, I will be passing out a lot of them to the employees working today. Everyone needs a little special "lovin'" on Valentine's Day.

Valentine Wishes

Here's a card I made for Valentine's Day, which I sent it to my daughter. I love sanding the Core'dinations Cardstock after embossing with the Pretty Print Embossing folder. After punching out the hearts, I ran them through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing folder (free during Sale-a-Bration).

Honeycomb Valentine

Here's a simple and fun Valentine. It's the card I used Friday with my nursing home ladies.  You can place the hearts anywhere, you don't have to center them in the "cells" like I did.  You wouldn't think 80 and 90 year olds would be so creative, but we had some really cute Valentines when they were all finished!! Mary Lou's rocked - wish I'd have made mine like hers!  I'd love to take some pictures of them working and their finished projects, but there are privacy issues involved!

Happy Watercolor

Well, it's another snowy, cold day and it's the perfect time for me to prepare for my Open House on Sat. I hope we don't get snowed out again. There's a chance for snow on Sat.!! The Happy Watercolor stamp set is in the new Occasions catalog and it's very versatile. I stamped it on a tag made from the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The card I made is a CASE from Diana Gibbs, which I found on Pinterest. I added the butterflies and colored ribbon to mine. The strip of Designer Paper near the bottom is the FREE Sale-a-Bration paper called Sweet Sorbet.

Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede

I made this card using the designer paper from Soho Subway and Venetian Romance. The colors in the paper are Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla. I used the new Banner Framelits to make the banner (which works really slick!) and the Chalk Talk Framelits to layer the greeting. Lots of toys and tools to make this one!
