HERE'S MY PROJECT: Heartstrings Pennant Frame
The Heartstrings paper theme was designed for Valentine’s but that doesn’t mean that it can ONLY be used for that special holiday.  The gorgeous combination of red and lagoon can be used for a variety of projects, and the subtle patterns create texture without being over the top.  

Here, I used Heartstrings to create a special momento for my Hawaii Secret Sister.  she has two adorable puppies that I knew she would be missing, so this frame was a nice reminder of the good things she’d be going home to when she left paradise.

Supplies Used
X7193B Heartstrings Paper Pack **
Z1941 Designer Creations Pennant Frame
Z3038 Junebug Puffy Stickers **
Shapes from CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Urban Alphabet Stamp Set

** These items are GOING, GOING, GONE as of March 31.

Your next stop on this GET IT BEFORE IT’S GONE Blog Hop is Darcel's "Close to my Heart KW" blog.
