With Valentine's Day only 10 days away, I decided our house needed a little crafty love!
I dug through my stash and came across some left over paper from a class I taught last year using Canvas Corp's Valentine line. I LOVED the cream, red and black and decided we needed a Valentine banner!
I used from Canvas Corp: Diamond on Ivory, Red Ribbon Stripe on Ivory, Love-Amour-Amour Sampler, Red Damask on Ivory, Ivory Love Script Reverse, Ivory Love Newsprint (not pictured above), Black Cardstock, Red Mini Dot Reverse on Ivory, Mixed Media Glue, and Small Clothespins in Natural. I also used Red Glitter Cardstock from Best Creation and wide lace & small black stones from Hobby Lobby.
This project also gave me a chance to use my early birthday present...a BIG SHOT!! I also used Spellbinder's Labels Sixteen. I used the largest 2 squares for the base and background. I then used the next smallest, along with the "Love-Amour-Amour" Sampler to make the smallest squares. The small 3X3 squares on the sampler are perfect for getting a lot of patterns without wasting paper! I also fussy cut the word LOVE from the same paper.
Here are a couple of close-ups!
I LOVE using rosettes for quick dimension. I would be totally lost with out my Martha Stewart Scoreboard for making them!! The perfectionist in me loves how crisp and even they come out!!
The Canvas Corp small clothespins were perfect to quickly clip my finished pieces to a length of wide lace, just to add a feminine touch.
And as always in my house....I had some helpers while making this project....
Hope you enjoyed today's project!
And remember...get caught being creative!!!
