Hi sweet one!
If you are following me via instagram you know it’s #valentinecraftweek in my life right now. Now that I’m diving into it I get the feeling that I am in the right place, doing the right thing. Maybe Valentine is a commercial holiday that makes us single gals feel extra lonely, sure that’s true. But it is also a time for valentine self love and what ever you choose to make it. I am all for giving it a try, even if it’s hard sometimes.
To be happy is my choice. Plus, I adore the visual language of amore; red velvet, bubble gum pink, shiny hearts and messages of love! I am in the right place for love.
I am combining some of my favorite things with this project and making Sweet Valentine Cards!
A combination of favorites
- using hand painted and bought papers in new combinations
- working in layers
- sewing in paper, spending time with my sewing machine
- the heart as a symbol of so many things
Come along and I’ll show you what I’ve been stitching up around here.
The possibilities are endless with a project like this. I guess that’s why I’m having a hard time stopping.
A few years ago I did something similar, but with fabric, you can find the tutorial here and I’ve also got a whole list of lovely Valentine Ideas if you care to take a look.
Let me know what you are making for Valentine!
Take care and have a wonderful week!
I like valentine’s day because it is fun to make hearts and give them to people. It’s always been about the crafting and giving and sharing for me. I love the red and pink and sparkles and lace.
These are great!!!
your heart as Sweet like a candy :)
Sweet indeed. Love your mix of papers and the stitching. xox
oo, i love that blue one!
I’ve been working on some and I have to say, I am LOVING the heart shape! I seem to have missed the appreciation of hearts for most of my life, and now, it’s just filled with delights!
Your work is beautiful and cheerful.
