Happy Hearts Wall Decoration for Valentine’s Day (Cloud Pattern in PDF and .studio)

Hello everyone! I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day decoration on Pebbles Blog today and thought it would be fun to share more step photos and a free pattern here. I picked a few of my favorite patterns from Pebbles Yours Truly collection and die cut a bunch hearts in various sizes. I used a set of nesting dies but you can also hand drew your own. I hand drew a cloud on the grid paper to be my base panel. I’ve made it into a pattern that you can download at the end of this post. I arranged the hearts in a random pattern and adhered them together with some foam adhesive. I also used some printed chipboard shapes for more visual interest. Finished!

Happy Valentine’s Day Card

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a card I made with Love Notes stamp set from Avery Elle. I added a touch of glitter in the flower centers. I stamped the flower cluster 3 times and cut them out. I then punched a circle from white cardstock, added my sentiment stripe and arranged the flowers. Before I glue the flowers down, I used a white gel pen to add some dashed lines to the circle and the sentiment stripe. I stamped the flowers separately to add them with foam adhesive for some extra dimension. Donna has some super cute treat bags for you today, don’t forget to check them out!

My Heart Flutters For You – DIY Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a quick and easy DIY project for Valentine’s Day using some punch dies from Lifestyle Crafts (We R Memory Keepers). All paper are from Pebbles Yours Truly collection. I used about 1/4 of each 12×12 patterned paper (3 different patterns). The butterfly punch die made it SO easy to die cut all the pieces I needed all at once. I mixed the patterns and stacked the layers with foam dots. Then I bent the top two layers a little to create a dimensional look. That’s it for a quick and easy Valentine’s Day project for the home.  It is so sweet and cute that I will probably keep it up all year round. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Have you checked out today’s Tales and Trends from the CHA Show Floor by Jennifer Schaerer yet? I was totally blown away! I am in love with all the stuff she picked! I thought I found out about what I like by myself but maybe I am just following the trends: Chevron/Zig-zag, herringbone, hexagon (honeycomb), kraft (especially white on kraft), Color combo – blue & yellow, decorative tapes (washi), and subway art. And Go-to Gal Teri Anderson’s Moxie Fabs? I am all over clouds! paper or stamp, I collect them! And I would like to use some of the Antique Book Papers to wrap some gifts!

Geometric patterns make this engineering head happy! :)And I made this card using my all time favorite: dots! For today’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge: The […]
