This month we're celebrating Valentine's Day and have some fabulous projects to help you get your creative juices flowing. If you've been following the "next stop" links you've probably just come from the amazing Gretchen Barron's blog. Her projects are always so creative.
This month, I've created two projects for you. First up, my EXTRA LARGE "hugs" card. I say extra large because it was created from a full sheet of cardstock (shaving a 1/4" off both the top and side). You'll need this extra large card to fit the jumbo sticky cuts letters.
For those not familiar with sticky cuts letters, the back peels off so you can stick the letters directly to paper. Once down, simply peel the top layer off, revealing the sticky ahdesive underneath. These sticky alphabet are great for adhering the chunky Essentials Glitter, seed beads or microbeads.
You'll see two new products offered by Stampin' Up! in my sample. The Scallop Trim border punch (from the Sale-a-braiton catalog) and the small heart punch in the new Occasions Mini catalg.
To recreate the layers for the hanging heart, start with the Three Hearts punch, next the small heart punch, finishing with the smallest heart from the Three Hearts punch. The white line was created with a signa-gel pen.
The hearts shown in the sample below were created with the small heart punch. The Multi-purpose adhesive works well to hold the glitter on these small hearts.
Here's a closer look at that tiny little heart.
I hope you enjoyed my Valentine creations this month. Next up is the oh so talented Connie Babbert. She's got some spectacular projects to share.
