Valentine bunting panels

I'll just admit to you right now that I really enjoy making buntings, for pretty much any occasion. They're easy to custom make to fit the space you're decorating, and can be as clean and simple or as complex as you like.

These are Valentine bunting panels--fairly small, and perfect for home decorating:
 sheet music layered  with tulle and collage images

clean and simple, with a little German scrap for shine
There is still plenty of time to create Valentines--especially when your digital collage order comes to you almost immediately!  What a great convenience.  Makes me smile every time.

Here are links to some of my favorite Altered PagesValentines:
Angelic Hearts--these are straight up heart shapes, so very little fussy cutting!!!!

Heart of my Hearts--the same hearts as Angelic Hearts, minus the center image, so you can add your own photo or sentiment.

These two are Victorian themed, and the images again require no fussy cutting--these were probably originally postcards, as they're rectangular: My Sweet Valentine  and  Victorian Valentine 

Super cute images from vintage children's Valentine's, not the Victorian era, but the kind that range anywhere from the 1930's through the 1970's:  Valentines of Yesteryear and Valentines of Youth.

Now you can have everything you need to make your own beautiful bunting delivered right to your door.  Choose from Valentine, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, or Baby Girl, Baby Boy, or Baby (green and yellow).  There is even a pretty, "Welcome" bunting that could be used year-round.

Happy Thursday to you!

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.


YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.


# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
