Be Mine...

Hadley & I worked on our Valentines this weekend! I was inspired by Betsy's card on the Moxie Fab World Die Cutting Challenge- and here's what I came up with:
 I used my cricut to cut different sizes of hearts, stamped the smallest & machine stitched them onto my cardbase. (I used Hero Arts XO set in versamark on the base & various pinks/red for the hearts).

And one more with Erin's dies & stamps (rosie posy), Damask Designs sentiment & some tea ink around the edges!

And in preparation for the sweet table the PTA is putting on for the teachers, I made these fun items:
Heart doilies (love!), hearts die cut from patterned paper & pink ruffle ribbon to set them off!
 These are double sided & should look SO FUN on the table!
 And speaking of sweet....

 We made our traditional hearts! This year we tried pink centers! We die-cut slotted hearts with the cricut, and embossed them with sheet music (my girl LOVES to play with the cuttle bug!)- a little pink gradient ribbon finishes them off! (the pink paper does NOT match well. boo. I don't think the 1st graders will mind!)

WHEW! That's a LOT of die cutting & LOVE!!! I'll be adding this to the MFW die cutting challenge! :D
And since the Ribbon Carousel is having an Anything Goes week, I'll link up there too!

A busy weekend for sure- but lots of fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by- I'd love to hear what you think!
