I knew what I wanted to do and since I had just organized everything, I knew right where to grab things that I needed so I could get them done fast.
I had EVERYTHING on hand for all 3 of these… best type of projects!
First two projects were for Valentine’s Day.
Up First: Framed Valentine
Travis and I have made Valentine cards for each other every year we’ve been together. Started when we were dating for our first Valentine’s Day that was only like 2 weeks after we started dating, and we have just continued it.
Travis made me this valentine the year he was deployed to Iraq (’07-’08).
I LOVE IT STILL!
He was totally ahead of the subway art curve and didn’t even know it! 🙂
What you can’t see is that there is even a heart in the center in a super fine, light glitter (it’s got a little rubbed off over the years).
Hubs is the best! All I did was mount the Valentine on two different pink pieces of cardstock. I used photo corners so I could pull it back off later. I then just put it in a frame I already had, actually the one I used for my pumpkin yarn art.
On to Project 2: Valentine PlateI bought this platter before Christmas at TJ Maxx for $4.99.
I won a gift certificate last fall to Expression Vinyl so I bought a ton of sheets of vinyl with it.
I pulled out a pink vinyl and my cricut and cut out the words “Be Mine” and put it on the plate.
Easy peasy Valentine’s Day decor!
Project 2 complete!
For only $4.99! 🙂
And one to project 3: Framed Printable
I won this cute printable sign in a giveaway last fall. For the longest time, I just had it propped up on a shelf in my craft room so when I was reorganizing I knew it was time to give it a proper display!
I had this frame for probably over a year if not longer. It was just a plain wood frame and I painted it in this bright aqua blue. Added some brown ink to the edges then put some modge podge on it.
I then made some rosettes with some white fabric I already had and glued them to a corner on my frame.
Now it is a little bright punch of color in my room!
Project 3- Complete!
And this one was also FREE!!!
I got all three of those projects done and only spent $4.99! WOOO!
I got all those done quickly in about 2 hours one night.
I love those kind of projects!
Linking up to these parties.
