Will you be my Valentine?

Hi, Jess here!

Vintage Valentine's are the best. The have awesome graphics and super sweet sentiments.  I used an image from the With My Love sheet.  I blew this one image up and printed it on a heavy card stock. (OR YOU CAN ORDER YOURS PRINTED) Once it was fussy cut, I used a very fine silver glitter to pick up some highlights. (WINK OF STELLA)

I had some small heart stickers with sentiments (OR YOU CAN ORDER STICKERS)   that matched this little guy perfectly.  I used a memo pin and glued them together using my hot glue gun.  (or you can use a sturdy cocktail pick)

 I poked the pin through the card stock so he appears to be holding the pin.

I made a GIANT crepe paper flower.  I used the same technique is showed you how to do here.

I needed to make my guy pop off the flower, so in came the mountain of foam tape.  I cut a ton of tape and just kept stacking it until I had enough to reach the top of the flower.  I attached my guy using a bit of hot glue to keep him stable.
Now the flower is made on a giant glue dot, to adhere the flower to my bingo card I just used the glue dot.  Topped him off with a pearl stick pin.

This snazzy little guy is showing off with a BINGO card for more fun.  (SEE OUR VINTAGE BINGO CARDS HERE)

I hope you enjoyed and have a Happy Valentines!

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 …
