Hi everyone! Thank you all so much for joining us on our Sweetheart Blog Hop! :) If you've come here from Celeste you are on the right track. If not, I've got our lineup below to help you out, starting with Georgiana so you won't miss any of our projects :) I hope you enjoy what you see! :)
I am SO excited to share my project with you and be in my very first blog hop! (Thank you again Georgiana for inviting me!) :) I decided on a Valentine's Day sign for my house. It was a lot of work, but I really do love how it turned out, and I hope you all will too :) I used glitter cardstock in black, silver and pinkish/purple, as well as silver pearlescent finish paper for all of my cutouts. I got really lucky and found glittery ribbon in exactly the same pinkish/purple shade of the glitter cardstock used for the lettering! :)
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by :) Don't forget to leave a comment below for your chance to win my "your choice" give-away! Followers are always welcome but not required :)
Here are some close up photos:
I used silver glittery heart brads to connect all the pieces together, and to help cover where I punched the holes to thread the ribbon through. I also added some Stickles doodling to each scallop piece to give it a bit more sparkle :)
I used pop dots to adhere the hearts to the scallop pieces, and all of the lettering on the hearts is from the Lyrical Letters cartridge (Loop Dee Loo style).
Here are a few photos I took while I was using the Design Studio:
I welded two of the scalloped hearts from the Sweethearts cartridge (same heart used for the letters).
To make sure they'd be at the correct angle and correct size, I stretched them over "The," "Family," and "Est. 2007" then just copied and pasted onto a new sheet before cutting. I copied and pasted them again and stretched the edges out just a bit for the shadow layer.
I hope you liked my family Valentine's Day sign! :) Thanks again for stopping by!
