Valentine's Is Everyday "Be Mine"

Hi everyone Autumn is definitely on it's way as I notice that Mother Nature has taken out her paint brush and started painting the leaves. I love living in an area where the seasons change although right now September is being her usual seductress teasing me with the warm weather.

This week's challenge is a scrap challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room. This challenge is being sponsored by Oddball Art who provided the hanging hearts image I'm using. The give away is two images from them.

I now know why the textured paper I used for my background was donated to a thrift store. There were several packages of it and probably because it can't be cut. I got better cuts with my old guillotine cutter but the edges were still rough. Luckily I had in my stash the ribbon to cover the edges as well as the narrow scrap which I used a punch on.

 I opened up a heart file from the library in Silhouette Studio. Then I filled the shape with a polka dot pattern. I took the digital image of hanging hearts from Oddball Art and sized it to fit inside the heart.I added the be mine from another file in the library. Once that was done I printed and used my cutting machine to cut it out. I took chalk to color inside the heart. I took a marker and colored the hearts.

My frugal tip is if you have narrow scraps use them for a border. Punches, dies, or even a cutting machine can be used to create borders.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. Such a great card and top.

  2. Tip not too. Stupid auto correct😠😠

  3. I really like how the hearts dangle inside the larger heart. Job well done!
