Be Mine Valentine

Just a couple more days until Valentine’s Day and I have a surprise for you today.

It’s a Valentine card project for you with a video tutorial to go with it. Distress Stains and canvas and stamping and die cutting all in one.

Now this is my first one so please, bear with me while I learn a new skill. Seriously…my hat is off to anyone who does these well and on a regular basis. Very, very challenging and it’s a steep learning curve. I’m going to try and keep working on them as I can squeeze in the time. Maybe it will get easier? A girl can hope!



Thanks for stopping by!

I love a challenge.

I seriously thought this would be an easy one.

Make a valentine’s tag using 7 Maya Road products (7 SKUs)…and the freebies were paint, sewing, black and white pen, one sheet of cardstock and punches and dies. Oh yes, and one of the MR items had to be kraft.

It was harder than I thought! Those Maya Road goodies are just plain addictive! After much counting and playing around, here’s what I came up with.

The little Vintage Heart Tart tins are so addictive. I’ve used them quite a bit lately so I was trying to use something else but in the end, I just couldn’t resist. You can easily punch these little tins with a Crop-a-dile for  hole for hanging the tag.

This tag was created for the latest Maya Road Designer Challenge. I hope you’ll join us for lots more valentine’s inspiration. Great ideas, lots of tips and oh yah,…the chance to win a Maya Road prize pack. Good luck!!!

If you’re wondering exactly which 7 Maya Road products I used, they are the first 7 supplies below…


Loves and Hugs…
