Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Hi, and welcome to my stop on Club Scrap's Valentine's Day Blog Hop!

Paper Quilting Card with Club Scrap's Love Ink Collection

To share the love going around today, I've made a a 6.25x9.25" oversized card featuring items from the Love Ink Collection with a paper quilting technique.

Some steps to help you make one of your own . . .

1. Cut a 5.75x8.75" art panel from the 12x12 Ivory Print. Use a 2" circle punch to punch twelve Ivory circles from the same print. Score 1/4" from the edge of a circle four times to create a square on each circle.


4. Fold on score lines. Alternatively, trim 1-3/8" squares and fold the punched circles around the squares to create four flaps. (Click HERE to see this version of the technique.)


5. Decorate a 1-3/8" square to insert within each punched circle.


6. Attach a row of three folded circles to the top edge of the art panel, then a 1" wide strip for your Valentine greeting, followed by three more rows of folded circles.


7.  Nest the art panel onto a matte and card base. The most important step: give it to someone who is really SA-WEET!


Before I go, one other little thing . . .


I used the Grafitti Mini Chalkboards to add a sentiment to this jar. I'll be using it to give flowers to my youngster, Marilee, on Valentine's Day. For more details on how to use Mini Chalkboards, check out the Club Scrap Blog HERE.


This will be adorable with a little greenery and red roses tucked inside.



Next on the hop is the lovely and talented Julie at Cape Cod Scrapper. Go check out how she is sharin' the love today.

Thank you for stopping!
