DIY: Cute Valentine’s Day Cards

Continue to turn pages..png

Hi!!!!!

Are all of you well this fine day?

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon! I always like making little Valentine’s around this time every year, and this year I wanted to show y’all how I do them! Let’s get right in to it.

So first, grab some scrapbook paper of your choice. (one big sheet is enough unless you’ll be switching) I chose pink and, later, one with hearts. (look at that funny little sun ray/spot on the paper😚)

Then fold it in half. (any way)

Then draw half on a heart right on the crease. (this helps to get the perfect shape)

Voila! Smooth it out straight and flat.

Then make 2-3 more. Leave the first flat, the second one half-folded, and the third mostly-folded.

Then I got out our ancient hot glue gun😄 You can use a glue stick or the like, but I always find hot glue works best.

While I waited for it to heat, I got out my card I was going to use.

Then I glued the half folded heart to the flat one.

Then add the mostly folded to the bunch. You can make it as big, add as many layers and colors as you want, but I only did three for now.

Then add your little heart cluster in one of the upper areas. (or lower. There are going to be words) I put mine in the mid-upper right.

Then sketch out the words you want and the basket. (It’s a hot air balloon😄)

Voila! I used my Tombow Fudenosuke hard tip for the words and clouds. (Although I used no pressure on the clouds; they were just sketchy lines.)

Then I got out a different sheet of scrapbook paper for the next one!

I got three puzzle pieces for this next one that says “I love you to pieces” I thought this saying was really cute, so i’m a’ gonna use ‘er!

Then flip your scrapbook paper over and trace and cut them out.

IMG_9397Then put a little dab of hot glue on the backs. Stick them towards the top, but not all the way up. More upper-middle. (Is that a thing?😁)

I forgot to take a picture of me doing this, but there! It’s finished! I just wrote it down using my Tombow Fude hard tip. (And AUGH! Points off for blurriness!)

Christmas Countdown, Day 16

Hello all!

Are you doing well?

I hope you are!   *hug*

Y’all know how much I love art, and everything that goes with it, (brush lettering, letter art, drawings …) so today I’m posting, for “Christmas Countdown”, some of the things I’ve done in the art category(:

I actually did a post like this last year, and if you would like to see it, click here.

(Warning: I believe my art work and lettering have come a tiny way since last year…😜)

This is an envelope art collage I made yesterday. I love how it turned out!

This is the wax seal combination I did to match the collage on the front.

I made these white pom-pom’s for a garland for my Mom.

How it ended up. (We were still decorating the mantle, so excuse how bare ’tis!)

My Gingerbread village. (this counts as Art, right?😁)

Well, there’s a little bit of my art!

I hope you enjoyed. Come back on Monday!

Christmas Countdown, Day 15

Hi!

Can you believe there’s only days until Christmas?? Whoa.

Well, today I was thinking I’d do Presents as my topic. Most people get a present or two around Christmas time!

 

Here are the questions!

Do you open a Present on Christmas Eve?

We do, if we remember(:

How do you open presents? Does everyone take turns, or does everybody open all at once?

We start out taking turns, but we end up opening all at the same time(:

Do you give presents to your whole family from you, or do you only give to certain people, or do you do a Secret Santa?

We all give to each other, but when we get with a lot of family we give to certain folks(:

Let me know what you do! I’d love to hear!

Come back tomorrow!

4 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!
