Be Mine Valentine Decoration

Another Monday is here! And today is just not any Monday, it is the Monday before CHA! Can you believe it is already here! I leave on Thursday for 3 full days of booth set up. And I'm not the first person getting there either. That just is a hint of how extremely creative and amazing our booth is this show! I can't wait to show you. I will be set with my camera and video camera so you will feel like you are right there with us. But there is still lots to do before leaving work for a week. And leaving your family! This week is jam packed but I can't wait to get to California and start feeling the excitement of a CHA show. 

With all of the CHA reveals, we can't forget about Valentines Day! One of my favorite days to craft for. I created a darling decoration this weekend using our Be Mine Stack.



This is one of our stacks which will be available for all stores to purchase at the show! It is gorgeous and a timeless, classic, gorgeous Valentines line. 


Look how pretty a scrap piece of wood can be! I found this new easel and have decided to craft something for it for each season. I had my husband cut me a scrap piece of wood leftover from a project. It is about 10 inches wide and 12 inches tall. I painted it and then sanded & stained it. 


I used doilies and paper from the Be Mine Stack to make a 3D decoration. I folded the hearts in half and hot glued them down right on the folded part. I hand cut the hearts with pinking sheers because I didn't want them to be perfect! I love how it turned out. I painted the "love" but you could also add alphabet stickers instead. Something about Valentines and handmade things just make me smile :)

I hope you have a wonderful day! I will be back with Wall Art Wednesday and some blog comment winners in a couple days. See you then!
