Peachy Keen Guest Designer Day 3

Good Morning! Welcome back to day number three of my guest design spot with Peachy Keen Stamps! I want to thank you for all the lovely comments you have been leaving for me. I am so honored to be able to share my projects with you!
For my project today, there are lots of photos. I hope this helps in some way, as I am a very visual learner, so I think the more photos the better.
I used the stamp set Valentine Sweets for this project. I know I am bombarding you with Valentine's things so far, but I just can't seem to help myself.
First, for the larger flower, I started out stamping fifteen of the large solid outline hearts onto one piece of paper and then six of the largest dotted outline hearts onto another piece of paper. (All of the hearts were stamped onto paper from The Girls Paperie.) Then, for the smaller flower, I stamped another ten of the largest dotted outline hearts onto yet another piece of paper and four of the smallest dotted outline hearts onto the last piece of paper. (I wanted all of the different sized hearts to vary from each other.)
Here is a picture of the hearts for the smaller of the flowers.
Next, I took my flower tool (the Petal Roller from Imaginisce) and made a crease down the middle of all of the hearts, large and small.
I then flipped the hearts over (the backside facing up) and made a crease in between the middle crease (which now looks like a mountain) and edge on both sides of the mountain.
 So, when you flip then back over there are two hills and one valley.
 From there, I pierced a hole near the bottom middle for the brad to fit through.
I took two small hearts and put them onto the brad first, then took five of the larger hearts and put them on the brads, spanning them out into the flower shape.
And, here is a close up of the two different sized flowers I made. I had ended up making three large flowers and two small ones.
Nearing the end, before I glued the flowers on, I painted the wooden love (found this at Hobby Lobby) in baby blue, pink and white, and then painted a layer of Glamour Dust Glitter Paint in Ice Crystal (which you can find here in the Peachy Keen store) over the entire thing, and let dry.
Finally, I replaced the ribbon that it can with with some pretty pink satin ribbon so that I could hang it on the wall, and glue the flowers where I wanted.
I hope you enjoyed the project today! Also, don't forget to leave your comments here and at the Peachy Keen blog in order to have your chance at winning the adorable Valentine Cupids stamp set.

Think Spring Blog Hop!!

Hello and welcome to your next stop on the Think Spring Blog Hop! You should have come from Amanda's blog. If you are just joining us or have gotten lost along the way, please look a the complete list below of all the stops. I can't believe that Spring is upon us already! It seems like winter was just starting {and here where I live it still feels that way} a few days ago, and we were all so caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. One of the things I love most about Spring is the feeling of starting out fresh again! Fresh air, new blooms, spring cleaning, and that renewed energy that comes along with it all. So, in order to start my spring, I thought I might "clean" out some picture albums and get them scrapped. These pictures were taken in 2007! ;O The pictures are very neutral with a hint of pink in them, so I chose some very springy papers and embellishments. My project recipe will be at the bottom of the post in case you are wondering where some of the …

School's Out for Summer Blog Hop!!

What do you look most forward to for summer? Me, I love the time I get to spend with my girls. I love the fact that we can pick up and do just about whatever we want with only a few time constraints. Want to sleep in? We can do that. Want to go to the zoo? We can do that. Want to run through the sprinkler? Well, they can do that while I take pictures.
Welcome to the School's Out for Summer Blog Hop!! I hope you have made it safely from Sarah.
My project for today is a layout of one of our yearly day trips to a local attraction. They have all sorts of rides for all ages, and this year they added their first roller coaster.
The layout recipe will be found at the end of the post. Your next stop on the hop brings you over to Kristin. If you happen to get lost along the way, or have just joined us, you can find the complete list of participating blogs below.

Baby Congrats

Just popping in to share a card I made for my cousin and his adorable wife.
I used paper and decorative tape from Bella Blvd and the Baby Basics set from Market Street Stamps.

The coloring was done with Copic Markers.
It's a real simple but super cute card for their upcoming precious baby boy!
