Hang a Little Love!!

Show a little love!

February is traditionally known for Valentine's Day!

A holiday we not only profess our love for one another.{but partake of many chocolate candies and conversation hearts.} Oh wait...that's just in my house!lol

Today we have two ways to show your love...a Love Sign that can be apart of your day to day decor or something special to bring out for the holiday. Designer Michelle Lanning's layout is easy to remake and a great way to capture those memories of your child putting together their Valentine's.

Fancy Pants Love Birds Paper and Sticker Collection
Stickles Glitters
Colorbox Chalk Inks
Wood Love Sign (Hobby Lobby)
May Arts Ribbons
Puffy Hearts
The Twinery Twine


1)Trace letters onto wrong side of papers. Cut out papers, ink edges and adhere to letters using Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac.
2)Handcut the pennant banner, heart and bird design from the papers and diecuts. For the banner I used our U Cut It foam and cut pieces of foam to fit under the pennants to give height.
2)Paint the letter "O".  Embellish with a puffy heart, slip a photo into the "O" opening or tuck a cute Fancy Pants Valentine image behind the opening. Add some sparkle to the diecut using Stickles Glitters.
4)Tie a bow with the twine...attach to the front of the heart using an Extreme Adhesive Micro Square. Cut another length of twine. Wrap around the puffy heart and attach to the backside of the hanging heart.

Designer Tip: Just thought I would share how I use my favorite Glue Arts Glue Arts U Cut-It 3D Foam. I got through this stuff like crazy. I love that I can cut it to my specifications and nothing goes to waste:)

After I trimmed the bunting I knew that I wanted to layer the pieces and use GA 3D foam. 
For this project i only used one layer of foam, but I have used 2 layers on past projects to add even more dimension.
Here is another piece that I used the GA 3D foam on. This time I cut the foam into longer strips to fit the needs of my piece of paper. I always use nonstick scissors to make the cuts go smoothly. 

And we have two more cards ideas to share with you today from our Guest Designer Jenny Chesnick!!
