Easy Valentine Project

This is the Valentine Banner I  made one night while watching a movie! 

(excuse the mess on the table :)  )
This was a super easy project.  I used
K&Comapany's KaZoo Die Cuts
and used my Cropidile to punch holes so I could hang
the animalswith ribbon. 

I then used smaller pieces of ribbon and made little
bows.  This was so the animals didn't slide around
on the ribbon they were hanging from

I then wrote little sentiments about my boys on each animal.

This was just a quick little project I made to dress up my 6' wide mirror
in my dining room.  Noah thought it was cool when he woke
up the next morning!

Thanks for looking!

This is the cover.  I used Autumn Leaves ~ Free Style alphabet stamps for the title. Marvy Uchida Le Plume #9 Pink was used to colour in the letters.  I also used K & Co. Ka-Zoo Chipboard pieces to decorate the rings.

This is a picture of my husband and I at his work christmas party.
 K & Co. photo frames were used on the photo to
add some detail.The flowers were made from layering scrap
flower pieces and attaching them together with a
button and some floss.  I used

Photo Cube

On February 12 I'll will be teaching a class at Papercraft Cafe.  The project I'm teaching will be decorating Kaiser Crafts Photo Cube using their "Hey Birdie" Paper collection.  For more information check out Papercraft Cafe's Blog, Cafe Cards & Chit Chat

On this side of the cube, I used my We R Memory Keepers ~Sew Easy (scallop) to do the stitching.  I also used my Fiskars Boarder Punch ~ Apron Lace.  I then added some rhinestones from K & Co. to add some bling to it!

On this side I used Sassafras Lass' Squirrel Stamp from the Woodland Creatures collection.

This is the top of the cube.  On here I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Eyelet Circles to create the flower.  I layered 3 sizes together and attached them using a pink flower brad.  I then cut out leaves from some paper from the "Hey Birdie" collection.  I also attached some brown ribbon to the flower. 

On this side I layered strips of paper that I punched using the Fiskars Boarder Punch ~ Apron Lace, then added some Rhinestones from K & Co.

Here I made some layered flowers from some random pieces I had lying around.  I used buttons and brads to dress up the centers. 

I also used Momento Dew Drop Ink in Hot Cocoa to edge all the paper

Thanks for taking a look!
