Valentine Card and Envelope

Valentine Card and Envelope

Here is a Valentine card.  I used printed cork, burlap and did some machine sewing around the edge of the card.  I did a lot of experimenting on this card but it turned out pretty cool.  Valentine Card SuppliesHere is a photo of some of the supplies you’ll need.  Any kind of heart shape will work for this card.  You’ll also need a corner rounder, a border punch, ink and stamp of choice (I used Close to my Heart chocolate ink and stamp set D1283 Say it in Style).

I put it all together then added some Cotton Candy Stickles on the arrow.Completed Valentine CardThen I made a custom envelope to go with the card.

Making the Envelope on the Punch BoardI used the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board to make my envelope but you can also use the Martha Stewart score board as well (the large one that has the envelope triangle on the back).

Putting the Envelope TogetherI added a liner to my envelope because it’s so easy to add one when you’re making an envelope.

6″ x 6″ Paper Organizer Mini Album

This 6″ x 6″ mini album is made with one of Close to my Heart’s 6″ X 6″ Paper Organizers (the my acrylix stamps come in the same type of envelope).  You just cut the sides to make a “book” with a snap closure.

Z335Photo of 6 x 6 Mini AlbumThen cut some 12″ x 12″ pattern paper in half so you have strips of 6″ x 12″ paper.  Then score and fold in half to make 6″ x 6″ pages.  Next pierce the folds of the cover and pages in three places and “sew” the pages into the cover.  Embellish as desired and within a few minutes you have a mini album with a durable cover that can withstand bouncing around in your purse or diaper bag.  Quick, easy and simple.  An awesome weekend project.

Close to my Heart Hinged Display Tray

This is a fun way to display some of your ephemera.  It’s out on display and you can touch it.  I just used glue dots to adhere all the rocks, the feather and the pipe cleaner penguin.  I did a little journaling in one of the squares.  There are so many fun things that can be done with this hinged display tray.  I have another tray that I’m going to lay flat so that it opens up like a box.  I think I’ll put some feet on it and of course decorate it.  All kinds of treasures can be stored in this (chocolate?! but I didn’t say that).

Magic Card

This card is so much fun to give.  You pull the tag out and reveal the magic.  The stamped image is magically colored.  This makes people say “How did you do this?”  Can you figure it out?  Leave a comment if you can or if you need help figuring it out.

Close to my Heart My Creations Memory Game

The chipboard pieces are divided into three bucket list mini albums (one for each of my family members).  I punched one side with my cropadile and bound them with twine.  Then I lined one side of each chipboard page for journaling the bucket list and left one side for a photo of the bucket list item.  This is great for looking back on if you start feeling depressed or discouraged and even negative.  We need to fill our lives and homes with these mood lifting, positive things to keep us on track.
