Quick and Simple Valentine

February 1, 2011 at 2:42 pm 6 comments

 I don’t have much time today so it’s a very quick post. With being time poor, the card needed to be quick too. Once I’d made the glittered part, it took only 5 minutes to create. This would be easily duplicated and the punched bit is fun to make. I made the glitter label punch with red cardstock so if any glitter wasn’t evenly distributed, it would be less obvious. Just put strips of slightly overlapping doublesided tape over a piece of card larger than the punched shape you want to cover. Punch it out, remove the top of the tape and douse in glitter. My carpet is still a little sparkly even once hoovered. That either says I’m rubbish at hoovering or my hoover is losing its ability…probably both!

I’ve used the tiny tags set which I use all the time- the little heart is from there too. Frustratingly I have mislaid both my heart punches (large and small)- I was hoping to use them, so if I’ve lent them out, or you’ve seen them wandering around Liverpool, please let me know- I’m missing them!!

Well, it’s nearly time for school pick up. This is my quick break- I’ve been cleaning up all day. The challenge was to clean up the ground floor today and attack the upper floor tomorrow. Hmm, it’ll either be a late one today or will reach into Thursday and Friday.

Just a reminder that there is still room for a few more if you fancy a FREE evening crafting this Friday at 8pm at my house. We’re using the Sale-a-bration sets to do the make and take. Bring a friend, you’d be really welcome!!

See you soon xx
