Tag Tuesday blog, the theme is the letter F--I love Fairies and sparkle, so I used a beautiful image from The Graphics Fairy and added vintage seam binding, lace, Stickles, a tiny Swarovsky crystal for the little silver crown, a paper rose from the Recollections line (found at Michael's) and a word from a shabby antique children's storybook I've had for years. The background paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Collection. Sorry the photography isn't great--I'm working on it! (Click on the picture for a better look!)

Nancy Maxwell-James for her 14 heARTs tutorial project. Nancy has generously shared many of her sweet Valentine's projects and how to create them on her blog, Sugarlump Studios. I made the heart too small and discovered that the Paper Whimsy images I wanted to use were too large to fit, so I had to settle for another image. I love this image of the sweet angel girls, but the heart came out looking more like a Christmas ornament than a Valentine's heart! Oh, and my skills with a glue gun are practically non-existent, so I had a lot of trouble applying the tinsel around the heart, but it was good practice for me. Despite that little glitch, it truly was fun to get busy creating again! I made another heart later on, and had a much easier time with the dreaded glue gun!
