American Crafts' Valentine's Day Blog Hop



Welcome to the American Crafts' Valentine's Day blog hop! I hope you will be inspired by all of the lovely projects you see today. Below is the photo that inspired my project, a card for that special someone, my husband. 


This wall of photos, with frames fitted in every possible space, reminded me of a certain Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party paper, and the print included in the 6x6 inch paper pad was the perfect scale for the card I had in mind. Here it is filled with colorful flower patterns, many from the same paper pad.

Supplies: Tropical 12x12 Pack (AC712P12-49) - Cardstock, 6"X6" Paper Pad (366214) - Polka 
Dot Party,  Cross My Heart Paper (366037) - Cut&Paste, Adhesive Chipboard Pieces (366074) - Bits, Dear Lizzy Acrylic Stamps (366797) - Daydreamer
How to:  Cut card base from pink cardstock, and fold in half. Trim frame print paper to fit the card front leaving 1/2 inch on each side. Cut out windows in the center frames only. Back each open frame with flower print paper, using pop dots to add dimension. Mount frame paper on pink patterned paper and and then adhere to card base. Paint chipboard heart and attach to card. Stamp, watercolor, cut out, and adhere image to card. Write sentiments inside, sign, seal, and deliver! 

Thanks for stopping by today. The next blog on the hop is the fabulous Allison Waken. In case you get lost, here is the full list of participants:


Have a Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
