More WRMK Valentine projects using every. last. bit.


Hope you had a great weekend.  Were you busy or did you get to relax?  And did you watch Downton Abbey?!  To wait till next year for Season 4 is going to kill me!  I just may have to watch 1-3 again in the meantime.  And throw in a little Larkrise to Candleford for good measure.

As promised, I'm back with a couple more Crazy for You projects.  On this first card, I pulled out my Silhouette again and cut this little cupid.  It's a WRMK shape.  You can get it HERE.  I love his chubby tummy.  And remember all those little text hearts I had left over from cutting that background piece last week?  Well, I used some of them here:

I used a bit of red Stickles on a couple of places and some crystal Stickles on the wing (not sure where that photo went but you can click the photo above to enlarge and get a better look).

Secondly, you know us paper crafters like to use every bit of paper and not waste an inch!  So I made this card right here:

These little snippets of colorful goodness are actually from the branding strips at the bottom of each piece of patterned paper.  

I trimmed the small patterned strips into banners and attached them to the stamped card base.  (NOTE:  the hearts are clear stamps that you can buy with the Crazy for You collection).  

The words are the names of each pattern.  I just trimmed them out, rounded two corners with my 1/8" Corner Chomper.  After everything was adhered into place,  I pierced holes all around and then used my WRMK gray twine to add some fun texture.  The hearts were punched from WRMK white textured card stock, then I added crystal Stickles.  Oh yeah, I inked all the edges with gray ink.

The purples in this collection just remind me of grape juice, which reminds me of eating breakfast as a little girl.  Grape juice was my favorite!

I've been working on a couple more projects with the Crazy for You collection, so check back soon!


  1. I like the one using the branding strips. I have done that and used a fancy punch at each end and used that as a border on cards.


I LOVE comments! Thanks so much for leaving me one! :)
