Valentine Projects

Hello friends! When I was ordering my goodies to work with this month I knew I wanted to work in pink, red and clear pearls and gems.

I heart U Typewriter Card

  • I printed this Love Actually Paper by Polka Dot Pixel on white textured American Crafts card-stock.
  • I trimmed to fit the card front.
  • I tied a bow out of red binding tape and wrapped it around the card front.
  • I zigzag stitched it to the card.
  • I stamped the Hero Arts typewriter stamp in Red Versafine ink on Neenah White Card-stock.
  • I hand trimmed the typewriter and adhered Pink Gradient Pearl Stickers to the keys.
  • I stamped the I & U on the paper and drew in the heart on the paper.
  • I adhered the paper to the card front with foam adhesive from American Crafts.
Hybrid xoxo card

  • I die cut this heart shape using my silhouette, a Hearts 4U by Laina Lamb, and American Crafts City Park Patterned Paper.
  • I adhered it to the card front, added White Gradient Pearl Stickers to each circle in the pattern.
  • I added some American Crafts Stream City Park Decorative MixTape.
  • I hand stitched around the heart and around the edge of the card with DMC floss.

  • I used printed up a picture of my son Jordan with a lollipop.
  • I cut a piece of Making Memories Paper the same length as the picture and adhered both to the card-stock.
  • I machine stitched in red thread around the edges for definition.
  • I placed a white gradient brad in two locations and wrapped red/white divine twine around the brad and mini attached the other side.
  • I glued on up-cycled letters for the title (a find from an old drive-in!)
  • I punched a circle of the same patterned paper and added it to the top left side of the card-stock.
  • I threaded more divine twine to a black button and adhered it to the circle.

  • I printed a picture of some of my favorite Guava Macarons
  • I added a title with thickers
  • I added some American Crafts Dear Lizzy Stickers
  • I added some Pink Gradient Pearl Stickers to the title and to various stickers to add interest.
love to read book mark

I saw a paper heart banner on how about orange and thought it would be a cute way to make a dimensional paper heart that I could sew on as an accent.
  • I punched three hearts out of this old Making Memories glossy pink houndstooth and trimmed two of the three hearts.
  • I rounded the corners of the book mark.
  • I stacked the three and machine stitched them onto this card-stock strip.
  • I machine stitched down the middle and around the edges.
  • I added pink vinyl thickers to say love to read.
  • I added Pink Gradient Gem Stickers to the title and down the center of the hearts.
I hope you've enjoyed my projects and are inspired to make something for someone special (and you are someone special too!) Thanks for stopping by!
