Picture My Life and Love ya Silly, plus one Google-eye!

 Take a simple card base, Heartstrings B&T papersPicture My Life Heartstring cards (scored on the side so they flap like a door hinge), a stamp from the Love ya Silly stamp set...isn't he too stinkin' cute....and add one google-eye for added cuteness and you have a card that is both friendship sweet and darn right cutesy silly at the same time.  That's not always an easy combo to find, but I think I found it with these cards I made for my team swamp.  These cards were super fast to make, and I love how they turned out.

One technique I wanted you to take note of was the stamping on the inside of the card. I rounded the saying slightly to match the curve of the circle.  Its pretty easy to do you just put one end of the image down onto your block and start to manipulate the rest to the shape you want as you apply it to the block.  Its pretty easy-peasy, with a little trial and error thrown in for good measure.

Decorating? I want hear from you

Who else decorated for Valentine's Day? Anyone? My pink sparkle tree, with pink twinkle lights has been up for weeks with our homemade paper ornaments.

My kids love it because THIS tree unlike Christmas they get to 100% decorate themselves. Okay so I  may go back when they are asleep and move some around but we are all happy lol!

Just think next week pink will be gone  and  IRISH GREEN will be everywhere hurray!!!!

Quick and Easy Valentine decoration and gift - Heart Jar

Project designed by Bren Yule
Here is a quick and easy last minute gift or home decor project for you using a mini drink jar, a paper lace heart, some paper straws, and some quick stamped images.  Add some fun baker's twine and your all done.

The stamped images here worked perfectly for the job, and best of all NO CUTTING out because they were all stamped from our set Forever In My Heart (pictured below) and cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy.
