Now we will switch gears and move on to my Cheery Lynn Design project!
Here is a close up of each letter. I used some large letters I had and on each letter I used the OPTIMISTIC font dies to spell LOVE.
Let me pause a moment to say here, that the ITALIAN FLOURISH DOILY, just might be the best die in the world. I am so in love with this doily die!
My flowers are my own made up version of the roly poly’s you see everywhere. But you have not seen those roly poly’s paired with these beautiful leaves from the DIMENSIONAL LARGE LEAVES #1 collection.
There you have it! My Valentine’s Day banner!
Hopefully I have inspired you! There is still plenty of time to create things for Valentines. Get your dies, paper and glue out and make something fabulous!
This has been your Cheery Lynn designer JEANNIE, hope you all make yourselves a great day!
The Cheery Lynn Designs dies used in today’s Cheery Lynn projects are: OPTIMISTIC font dies, BUTTONS5 set, CIRCLE – SCALLOPED STACKERS,ITALIAN FLOURISH DOILY, DIMENSIONAL LARGE LEAVES #1, LADY BUG FRAME and WITTLE WEAVERS.
Last month was my birthday. I got a lovely gift from my Visiting Teacher…that MIGHT have been my only gift that day? I can’t remember. (Not talking about all my CYBER wishes!!) Hey my birthday is still going…I just got ANOTHER FAB gift from a dear friend (who also does my hair..) She gave me the best combo of hair stuff!..So by no means, am I complaining…anyhow..before I get myself in trouble…let me just say, part of my gift from my VT was some really cute little candles.
I could have left them alone…but I added some wow, and now I want them out in the open all the time!!
I did these for a challenge posted on http://dixiepieces.com/.
Here is my 1st BEFORE candle:
Here are my AFTER alteration process.
Here is my 2nd candle BEFORE:
Here is the AFTER alteration!
You will have to forgive me for so many pictures of the last candle. I used a lot of sentimental stuff on it. The beaded cherries were a bracelet that my oldest son made. There was some irregularity in it and he did not want it, so he made me another one. I told him NOOOO, don’t throw it away…and now it is part of my candle holder. The other sentimental item is the dangling heart charm. That was a little necklace that my 6-year-old made in ITCHY ribbon that I could not bear to wear, so now it is part of my necklace. So, what do you think? What do you have lying around that you could alter? Christmas is coming, what can you re purpose, redo and give to some one to re-love? Think about it!
I have to tell you, seeing the colors of the rainbow all lined up, makes me giddy. I mean I feel a surge of happiness just looking at something based on the simple colors of a rainbow. I entered a swap for some ATC cards. I needed to create the cards based something that is ME! I have NEVER done these before..so I just made mine like a mini card. I found a wonderful phrase to go with my design and of course, I added some POLKA DOTS and voilà, here is my finished project!
I found this wonderful product on ETSY. I think the commercial name for them is DEW DROPS. They make any project sparkle and add a little pizzaz. I have tried to take a close up so you can see them.
You can really see the 3D effect on this one. Such a happy project!
Can you believe I made 20 of those? They were A LOT of work. All the scraps are sewn first, then I sewed all the flower/button accessories, added sparkle, dew drops and polka dots!! Lots of love in these. I really enjoyed making them!
In the next few days I can reveal my PK GLITZ design team projects, I have to wait for them to post them, then I can show you!! I also have to show you another finished project, the one I was calling the “MANTEL PROJECT” It is done..pictures soon!! Let me know how you like the ATC’s!!!!
