Hearts on my mind

Happy February to you!   I know Valentine’s Day was a few days ago, but I am still in the heart mood so today’s projects have a heart on them.

I started with a mini album.  I die cut a large scallop heart from chipboard and covered with pattern paper.  I painted and inked the edges for a distressed look.  I turned the heart upside down  and scored the point of the heart to make into an album.

For the front, I cut an oval in the glassine bag and then added a manila tag to tuck inside.  I punched a heart from the stripe print and added the vintage dictionary paper behind it.  I then inked a small bingo card and cut a sentiment from the pattern paper for the top.  The tiny heart in the center is the red foil from the Party Games that I punched out.  I added a button with Twirly Twine and a few rhinestones to complete.

I added six pages inside using the “Stack the Deck” technique.  I added Velcro tabs to secure the album.

For the pages, I added various pattern papers listed below along with a fabric scraps.  I continued the tiny sentiment theme inside on each page.  I also added Soot Tinted Tape on many of the pages.

For the inside cover, I painted, distressed, and stamped a heart.  I outlined the hearts with black marker.

Next I made a card.  I stitched many layers together to create this.  I punched a heart from the bingo card and layered a pattern print behind.  I layered with a decorative button tied with Twirly Twine and accented with a red pearl.  I cut the tiny sentiment from the pattern paper and added to a journal tab.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of February!
