More Hearts!

DSCF6510-1

There are heart challenges abounding out there in blogland, so I am sure this qualifies for some of them, but for the time being, I am just highlighting Stampin' Royalty’s Challenge 58, Hearts, Hearts & More Hearts!

At my downline meeting, I made these little tags for the gifts I gave the new recruits and their uplines:

Really easy, big hearts diecut from the Red Glimmer paper, then a little additional Modern Label tag using All Holidays and Things I Love.  Of course, after doing the heart diecuts, I had leftover scraps, so I made this big honkin’ card:

This is about 5” square; the three Glimmer Paper negative pieces are backed with Love Letter DP; the fourth is a Very Vanilla panel stamped with a sentiment from Define Your Life; I punched out a few more hearts from the scraps and added them here & there!  I seem to be gravitating to this square layout quite often lately….I think I’d better look for some sketches for new inspiration!

This is really so great! My mom asked me for a home decor item for Valentine's Day and this gives me LOTS of great ideas! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Oh my goodness this is cute. Your ladies are so lucky to have you. I love this card and the CTD card.
I took your advice and went shopping. First I got a call that the SU stuff I ordered was ready to be picked up. Then I went to get a new bathing suite. I ended up with two. Last stop was the scrapbook store. I did good because I had gift cards. So it was fun. Now tomorrow it is cards, cards, cards. LOL

I absolutely love your card. I may have to case it. My husband doesn't come back until Thursday so I still have time to make it. Thanks for sharing with us Stampin' Royalty.
