With all the lovey sets being released tonight, I've had romance on the mind. As soon as I saw this set all bout romance, I thought having a reminder about it might be helpful. With a house full of 3, active and young boys, romance is often the last thing hubby and I are thinking about. Now we have a reminder every day. I made a sweet little framed home decor item. I placed in on hubby's nite stand....sometimes just a gentle reminder is needed.
I was inspired by a project I saw in my Oct. issue of Scrapbook Ect. magazine. With all my heart die-namics I was able to pull this project together fast and easily.
I started with the new LAYERED HEARTS DIE-NAMIC. I cut 1 large heart from vellum (I wanted it to be hidden behind all the smaller hearts). This large heart was my guide to keep the heart shape.
Then I cut out LOTS of our smallest hearts from the NOTCHED TAG DIE-NAMIC. Lots, meaning approx. 26. I chose to work with the pretty papers from Oct. Afternoon-sidewalk. I mixed up the text and flower prints for my hearts.
I also cut out 6 larger hearts with the HOMESPUN BIRDHOUSE DIE-NAMICS. I know I keep telling you, that heart is THE PERFECT size. Each heart was edged with some tea-dye distress ink. It just gives an extra pop, to help keep each heart separate from each other.
I did a lot of pre-planning with this project. Laying it all out BEFORE you adhere anything down will save you a TON of time.
I made the sentiment stand out by using our other heart die-namic set, HEARTS A PLENTY. This time the medium, scallop heart was the right size for the job. I stamped the sentiment onto a fishtale banner from FIRST PLACE AWARD RIBBON and added a button and twine for my final embellie.
I'm so excited about how this turned out and I can't wait to give it to hubby! I'm sure he won't be as excited about it as I am, but he is appreciative of the craftiness I add to our home.
