neon valentine

Time for a great start to another week! We are heading into the season of love, so I've been working on a little project.

It's a fun collection of love notes for my shop! And I've made an option for customizing the poems/quotes and adding names/initials to the back page. Wouldn't they be so sweet scattered through out the house? Or tucked in places like a lunchbox...

I think I'm most obsessed with the mini binder clips I used on our Christmas cards. Too cute! And printing on chipboard—my latest design craze. But I also like the neon colors instead of the traditional Valentine reds/pinks. (So actually there is a lot I like about these). What do you like most? Any sweet Valentine ideas you've been tossing around for this year?

plastic bag heart wreath

Happy February 1st! My house needed a little festive door candy, so I whipped up a heart wreath—made from recycled grocery bags. Never thought those could make something pretty, did you? Yeah me neither. But I REALLY like it. AND it's waterproof. Perfect for a sporadic weather month.

I didn't really follow a tutorial, but used the concept from this wreath. The only supplies are a metal hanger and 15-20 plastic bags. Ruffled weather-proof wreath for a total cost of nada. Can't beat that!

papercut heart blue valentine

Happy Monday! A pretty valentine and a quasi-tutorial for you.

Apparently I just can't get enough of this made up holiday. The creative fireworks go off at random intervals, and for whatever reason the lastest displays involve a musical twist. Original instructions and template from Martha Stewart.

Supplies & Tools // Two kinds of paper, chipboard (for cutting on), printed template, xacto knife, scissors, and tape.

The process was less tedious than I expected and took under 2 hours. TIP: Spray adhesive can be your best friend or your worst enemy, use with caution. Sadly, I butchered one area of the heart but thankfully it's not that noticable.

I might just frame it. The perfect valentine if you are looking for sweet & sentimental gift on the inexpensive side.

Also, I found a few other templates including carved initials, a pop-up card, and squirrel love.

AND my goal is to do a full week of posts this week. YAY ME!

happy heart day to you

My apologies for the lack of posting, my computer had a meltdown and was in therapy last week. Back to pretty things! Look at this adorable valentine that I recieved from my partner in craft-making crime.

Such fun packaging for a yummy treat, and a fun pin wear with future outfits.
