Now we all now this is the most romantic time of the year.. all those gorgeous hearts, sweet little birds, cute elements and perfect sheets of wordart for love layouts and projects..
Valentine's Day is just around the corner!
I wanted to show you what I did with the YourScrapbookStash products I got to work with this month. I got the most adorable love/valentines line from Bella BLVD called Lovey Dovey; it is on sale right now with 25% off. So including the 20% off you have during this celebration time with YSS I advise you to RUN to the store! (of course after reading this post..)
In my package there was also the acrylic keychain from Maya Road and when I saw it, I already had the idea to make a cute little gift for my youngest son, who totally adores everything I make (My oldest does too, but he is WAY too "cool" now he is 6, LOL! He will get something cute too..)
Here is me holding the keychain up:
I love how the acrylic pieces are just barely there, but they make a HUGE difference in the end piece. On the front acrylic heart I added a heart shape from Lovey Dovey's cut out element sheet. As a second element on the keychain I cut out a simple 3x3" square white cardstock and added a photo, the gorgeous ruffle flower from Maya Road and a cute heart pin from Maya Road. The I love you sticker is from the Alpha+Bits sticker sheet from Lovey Dovey.
Here you see the back of the first square with colored photo. I added pink paper, a heart cutout from the cut out element sheet and a doily from KC company. Up there is a heart I created using my heart punch and another sticker from the Alpha+Bits stickers.
On the Alpha+Bits sticker sheet where two little tag stickers which I stick back to back and added with a piece of bakerstwine to the keychain. I added all the tags with ribbon or twine to create a playful look.
The black and white photo is also on a 3x3" square piece of cardstock and I framed the photo with a stickerstrip, which I cut in half. I added a tab and some beautiful May Art lace. Right behind the photo you can see the large cutout from Borders+Blocks. I glued two of them back to back and added them with ruffled ribbon from Maya Road.
Here you can see the back of the b/w photo. I added the lace ribbon and tied it in a small bow. I also added a pearl pin from Maya Road and a cute cut out heart. I tucked in a ticket from Tim Holtz and while the pink wordart was originally a large strip from the Alpha+Bits sheet, I cut it up to fit the square. It works perfect if you working on a small piece of cardstock.
You can add as much or as little as you want. You can write on the acrylic, you can add rub ons, or just like me.. just glue little hearts on there and leave them basic as a little, yet perfect touch to finish it.
It is easy, it is fast and it is such a perfect little gift for someone you love!
Have fun creating!
