Honestly I am tuckered out! Today was big storm clean up day, they cancelled school again and try as I might I am not as productive with the kids at home and it looks like we will get another foot of snow tomorrow afternoon! I don’t know where we will put it, we have not had snow like this in a few years and it was spread out, not all at once. We are getting winter all in one week! That is why I love Valentines day, it is a bright spot in the depths of winter halfway through the shortest (yet feels like the longest) month of the year. Yay Valentines day! I realize it is probably a bit late to share this project but you can file it away for next year and be ahead of the game!

Supplies:

  • White cardstock
  • Colored cardstock or premade card bases (mine were from Micheals)
  • Black Waterproof stamping ink (Ranger Archival)
  • Stamps: Yummy in my TummyAny Occasion (SAB freebie)
  • Sweet Treat cups #116802 (*I think these are discontinued but you could put a clear baggie behind the opening for goodies or make this design on a small treat bag. I think the small circle shape shaker from Jillibean soup is close to the same size)
  • Watercolors (I am using Jane Davenport Brights and the yellow from Neutrals but use what you have)
  • Watercolor brushes, stamping block and adhesive

 

I also wanted to wish my best friend Kathy (Remember Ask a Crafter) 🙂 a very happy birthday, 29 is a great year my friend! (I should know, I have celebrated it many times LOL!) Have a great night and til next time happy crafting!

Woven Hearts & Ribbon!

Valentines Day will be here before you know it. Why not make a special little treat for someone you love this year?

This woven heart pocket is simple to make and double the fun because you can put candy inside. To make it more special I embellished it with lovely ribbon from Offray. In today’s video I’ll show you how to weave the pocket, add a ribbon ruffle and tie a perfect tiny bow!

Supplies:
Scrapbook paper (two 3″x12″ strips)
Pencil
Compass or something round 3″ in diameter to trace
Scissors for ribbon and paper
Offray Ribbon:
1/4″ sheer Asiana in Antique white
1 1/2″ Single Faced Satin Ribbon in Navajo Turquoise
3/8″ Double Faced Satin Ribbon in Sherry
