This 3 x 3 shaker note is perfect to tuck in a package for your Valentine. I started with a 3 x 6 piece of Real Red, scored at 3″ to make a little note card. I already had the negative of a square, cut from another project so I trimmed it down to 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and put a piece of acetate on the back. Using the foam strips, I made a box on the back and filled it with little shaker bits and some heart from the Confetti Hearts punch. After adhering a piece of white card stock to seal it up, I die cut a Red Glimmer Love to the front and a white embossed You from Crazy About You. Hugs, Fran

Valentine’s Day is almost here and I have a gift card holder to share with you. (Because what says “I love you” more than a Venti White Mocha?) This starts with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Real Red scored at 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2. Put some strong adhesive right on the inside of the score lines and die cut, punch or simply cut the top of the sealed area. This makes a space for your gift card. Decorate the inside and out of your holder and wrap with a belly band.
My belly band is 1″ wide and is decorated with Sending Love Designer Series paper. The heart is punched from Red Glimmer paper and the Love is die cut from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
I made some 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 envelopes using the envelope punch board to hold these and they fit perfectly! Hugs, Fran
More treats! While I still had my embossing paste out from yesterday’s project, I decided to try to use it on some of these little glassine bags. You have to work quickly on glassine so the paste doesn’t spread. I was still using the Hearts mask and was able to do two bags at a time. Once it was dry, I added a red Glimmer paper “love” and tied it off with some pretty red ribbon. Filled with treats, they look pretty! Hugs, Fran
It’s dark and dreary here so a sunny card makes my heart happy! This is Day at the Beach colored with Copic markers and masked all over the place! I used post it notes to mask off each piece and then colored away – eventually covering most of the images with Crystal Effects. The die is Sunshine Sayings. I’ll be adding to the card in the future! Hugs, Fran
Live, Laugh, Love – it’s almost Valentine Day! This sampler uses all kinds of hearts and stamps to create a keepsake for someone special of for YOU! Each square is the largest stitched frame die. I’ll try to list all the products I used below. Hugs, Fran
Valentines Day? Yep! This card is made with the new Hexagon Dynamic Textured embossing folder and the “love” from Sunshine Wishes framelits. The heart was was cut from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Glimmer paper. I sponged on ink – Real Red, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette onto water color paper and then embossed it. The love was cut from Black card stock and then fun foam, layered together and covered in Glossy Accents. Very simple. Hugs, Fran
Here’s another Sunshine Sayings bundle card inspired from the catalog. Using Sahara Sand paper from the Neutral Patterned Paper Pack, this card is soft and sweet. My biggest addition is the colored pearls. I used a Copic marker but they can also be colored with a Sharpie marker or any other alcohol marker. Hugs, Fran
I love the sample in the catalog of Sunshine Sayings! The bright colors really make me happy – so I cased it. I used So Saffron for the stamping and Crushed Curry for the die cut flower. The word was cut out of watercolor paper and then watercolored with Bermuda Bay and an aqua painter. And of course there had to be bling! Those sequins really had a nice touch! Very fun! Hugs, Fran
