There is something about all of the great product that Stampin' Up! has that makes Valentine's Day projects a whole lot of fun. I had told myself that I didn't need anything new for making projects for the upcoming occasion but one look at the new Occasions mini and I was a goner. There are so many beautiful projects using Valentine Defined (page 9 of the mini) and I fell in love and had to have it. And, for those of you who know me, you know my love of luminaires. What would Valentine's be without the soft glow of a battery operated tea light shining from a pretty Valentine luminaire?? Unfortunately, I had a terrible time getting a good picture of this project so this is the best I could come up with. (time for a new camera!!)
I was excited to make this project as it uses the Fancy Favour box die which I finally got around to ordering. Why, oh why did I wait so long?? This is going to be my new favourite go to die and I can see using it a lot. The heart stems stamp is from the Valentine Defined stamp set and the heart is punched out of the lovely red glitter paper with the large heart punch. Vellum on these luminaires adds such a nice, soft, romantic look. The trim on the top of the box is cut from the Love Patterns DSP using just the top portion of the die. Cool effect!! Once again, I am sorry for the poor picture quality.
Off to get some housework done and then I can work on some more projects. Take care.
