More Valentines!!

Hello everyone!!!! After this month's Taylored Expressions release with all the Valentines, I am obsessed with hearts even though Christmas is only a week away!!! At this rate, I will be all set for Valentine's Day!!! 

My first card features the Pockets and Pages 3x4 Part of My Heart was used on Lollipop cardstock and the Love You sentiment dies from the new Hearts a Flutter Cutting Plate set were used to cut the sentiment out of both the diecut and Sugar cube card stock. 

The white sentiment diecuts were popped in the negative space and taped to the back. The background papers are from the TE Formula For Love 6x6 paper pack and the Baker's Twine finishes it off. 

Since I can't stand to lat anything go to waste, I used the negative cutout from the Pockets and Pages 3x4 Part of My Heart diecut from the first was adhered to the Sugar Cube card base and the cute little heart flowers from the new Taylored Expressions Tag-a-Long Valentine were colored with Copics, cut out with the coordinating Tag-a-Long Valentine dies and popped up with foam dots.  A white Sharpie pen was used for the white highlight dots. 

The sentiment is from the same set and the little white hearts were cut with the heart dies from the Hearts a Flutter Cutting Plate set. The Baker's Twine is the finishing detail. 

Thanks for visiting....If I don't see you again before next week, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!!!!
