Fred She Said Valentine Blog Hop
Danielle's blog then you've come to the right place. If not, you're going to want to go back to Tracy-Lynn's blog and hop along from the start! Tracy has come up with some gorgeous new ideas for Valentines Day, quite a few of them are great for all sorts of occasions, not just Valentines. I hope you're enjoying the hop so far.
I've got a couple of projects to show you; the first is a clean & simple card made with a Cuttlebug folder that cuts and embosses a 5 x 7" card. The DP inside the frame is from Bearly Mine Designs. I've used the pre-coloured Hearts and Roses set of digis and added Distress Ink to the heart so that it shows up against the white card. I decoupaged an extra layer of roses onto the heart and put one half under and half over the frame and added some Stickles to both.
The second project I've got to show you is close to my heart - because it contains chocolate! I made a treat holder from a great tutorial at Splitcoaststampers by Beate Johns, using the pre-coloured "Better than chocolate" set from Fred, She Said. The main image has the text added to it and it's matted onto a Nestie and then attached to the band around the gift box, which has a border punched with my new MS punch.
Pull on the ribbon, without undoing it, and out comes the chocolate, which has the punch line on it.
I layered 3 copies of the image to decoupage it, you can see the layers here:
Thanks for looking at my projects, I need to give you your word to make the magic phrase so you can enter the draw - my word is life. Now it's time for you to see what fabulous creations the talented Marlena has to show you. You have until midnight on Friday, 4th February to complete the hop.
