Category: Hearts a Flutter

From Frame to Card

There’s a really cute frame in the Spring Mini (page 11) that I changed into a card.  It uses the Heart a Flutter bundle – so cute!  Their frame was backed with chalkboard so I used the chalkboard technique to make this card.  I embossed the sentiment white white embossing powder and used a sponge dauber to apply white craft ink around the edges and on the image.  Then I took a paper towel and rubbed most of it away.  It leaves a “chalky” look behind.  I drew the line around the edge with a white gel pen.  A white pencil or crayon would also work for this technique.

Hearts a Flutter Set

I cased the main element off a card that Diana Gibbs cased from Glenda Travelstead – it’s a circle of casing!- and turned it into a 3 x 3 gift card and gift bag.  Now I have a set for Valentines day.  When running the gift bag through the Big Shot, I used no tabs and it was still pretty snug.

I spent yesterday with my children, celebrating my oldest daughter’s birthday!  She wanted me to bake my 3 layer carrot cake with cream cheese icing.  Yum!  We have always used Katie’s birthday as the “kick off” for the holidays.  But believe it or not, we still have 2 more family birthdays to go before Christmas!  Hugs, Fran
