This is just such a sweet idea I can hardly stand it. Thank you pinterest for sharing it with me!
What a fun Valentine! Thank you pinterest for showing it to me.
Look at the fun easy project I saw on pinterest today! Just the thing to get me in the mood to start decorating for Valentines day!
This has to rank up at the top of my list for favorite animated shorts. It's called "A quoi ca sert l'amour" (What good is it, love?) which is also the title of the song sung by Edith Piaf. Sit back and enjoy it is very sweet, and speaks of the beautiful truth of love. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, but in the end it should always be fun, and it is always a worth while venture.
Ooooooooh I got so many new punches I just had to try them all out!!!! And that is what happened to this tag. Oh this was just so much fun to make. I just went crazy on this poor little piece of paper. Lets see... first I made the tag. I think I traced an old one and enlarged it. Then I stamped the background with versamark ink to give it a pretty shadow effect, and not to make it too busy. Cuz I knew I was going to be adding tons, and tons of stuff to the front. Then I made some ribbon edged banners. And stamped out some little fun embellishments with one of my new stamping up stamps. Then I just finished it off with tons of fun elements EVERYWHERE!!! I ended up putting this on a present for my Mom's birthday. She had so much fun looking at all the different elements.

In my life long quest to make the perfect flowers out of punches I ran across LaughItOutNow on YouTube. She has two great videos to make 10 different types of flowers with one set of punches (Video 1, and Video 2). It sounds like a dream come true to me. Here is my first attempt with them. So with a ton of little paper flowers scattered all across my desk, (and a few in my hair), after hours of playing my new To: and From: stamp, and journal stamp were staring at me dejectedly. So I had to make the perfect little tag for Valentines Day. It was so cute I almost couldn't give it away. I just love the pink and contrasting bakers twine together. Black and pink has always screamed French Shabby Chic to me. And though this tag doesn't really convey that it is a good reminder that I have to making shabby chic stuff as I reveil in my ultra cute, girly, flower encrusted gift tag.

When I saw Miss ChicnScratch on youtube make this gift box I just had to make them for Valentines Day Treats. They just turned out so cute and so easy to make. Ok, ok I had to watch the videos a couple of times. Then I had to make a template. Then I had to scale up the template because I needed a lot more room in the box for what I had to put in it. But other than that it was easy, and fun. And now that I have the template I can just trace it to make it again and not worry about all the rest. So thank you Miss ChicnScratch for getting me up once again to make something fun.
