Using My Hearts.....

I decided before I was tempted to throw away my extra hearts from my project the other day for the My Pink Stamper Design Team Post I would use them. I have a habit of saving things like this, moving them around my desk from place to place, then getting frustrated and throwing them all away to find my desk....
 I embossed my hearts with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder. The Shimmer Sheetz Emboss beautifully. I need to get some more of these!
I decided to just do something very simple and try out one of my new cartridges I haven't even touched yet--Spring Holiday Cards.
I made the card on my Gypsy cutting the base and layer at 4.88 inches--which will make the card perfectly fit into a A2 envelope. I hid the contour of the faces on the hearts--even though after I was done I realized it was just added work because I added the hearts right over the place where they were. The Cuttlebug Polka Dots Folder was used on the background. The dots around the edges were made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White on one and Stickles in X-mas Red on the other. I did add buttons to both--my friends will be surprised, I am not a fan of buttons, LONG story.....
Tomorrow I will show you another simple card where I used the rest of the hearts and the label.


  1. They are beautiful! I love that you recycled the hearts from your MPS project! The problem I have with putting my scraps aside to use later it that I pitch them all together into a never ending box and they become lost to the world. My scrapbook clubbers love that box! TFS!

  2. Love it! the embossing is wonderful and I like the button touch lol! looking forward to that story :) I am with you I can't throw my extra cuts away so I have the box where they go and once a week most often Sundays I do all my work from my scrap boxes only, again thank you for the inspiration ;)

  3. Hi Maria!!
    Ya know, when I saw your MPS project, I wondered what you did with all those pretty hearts! Cuttlebugging is great, isn't it? Have to look for Shimmer Sheetz! I have at least 2 boxes of the bigger "scraps" --wish we could call them something else!--& SEVERAL bowls, containers & zip lock bags of smaller ones...probably won't ever use all of them, but just CAN'T toss 'em! I'll need a whole new storage area soon!!I "LOVE" your card (ya get it?!?!?)
    Have a Happy, Scrappy Day!
    Hugs from R.I.,

  4. Nice job using your scraps! I never toss that crap either until, like you say, I want to see me desk. Those would be impossible to toss, though. they're gorgeous and I love the cards you made with them. xxD
