Hearts

Felt Heart Pins

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories, Room Decor

Hey all,

There’s a part of me that just loves the calming feel of stitching. I wish I was far more advanced at it, but I guess I’m more on that “practice makes perfect” path. I recently had a few friends that have asked me if I could convert some of my plush felt stitched hearts into pins. What a great idea!

I decided to take things a step further by embroidering a little floral arrangement on the hearts as well.

Not only is this great little decor, but oh boy does they stand out with the pin trend that everyone seems to be on lately!

I used a 1.5″ gold bar pin on the backs and adhered them in place. I added some stitching to them just to reinsure they stay put.

These coral beauties measure about 3″ x 3″ and packed with cotton filling.

Valentine’s Day Mini’s – Hearts & Twine

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m back from a long weekend away and wanted to get back right into the groove of things and post up some Valentine’s Day card ideas for those of you looking to create (or buy) something simple. I’ve created these cards that I will post up on Etsy! I debated if I wanted to  make something colorful and thought it would be a nice change to simplify some cards down a bit. Nowadays, it seems that cards are so colorful and bright and over-the-top. Sometimes, it’s a nice change to mute things down a bit.

There are 4 different designs (3 featured here in the picture) with window cut outs for the image and the sentiment. Inside there is a “to” and “from” section for a quick note.

The cards measure approximately 2.5″ x 2.25″ and the windows were cut out using my silhouette cutting machine. The machine is such a great accessory for quick easy to duplicate cards.

Valentine’s Day Cards – HeartFelt Animals

By Cards

Hi All,

Did you catch the pun in the title there? These adorable cards were created using felt animals that share a common ‘heart’ shaped theme. I didn’t want to over-think these cards too much and just wanted to fun animals to take center stage.

I used a dry embossing technique and added embossed hearts to the background and added a fun animal to each card. I didn’t have many Valentine’s Day sentiments that were kid friendly (kisses, xoxo, extreme declarations of love etc..just seems a little too much for my style). So I just kept things super simple.

Here they are!

FeltSquirrel

FeltRaccoon

FeltOwl

These cards measure 3×3″ and are just the right size to hand out in classrooms with a little treat! I made some cards last year with these felt-friends and they were a huge hit! They just had to make a reappearance this year.

Hi all,

We are on to week 2 of online card class and I am anxiously waiting to see what is in store for the week. Today’s cards were so creative and inspiring in theme. For homework the designers asked that we use one of their outlined sketches to create our card. I used Kristina Werner’s sketch and came up with my design.

Here’s my contribution for day 6
