Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party

February 3, 2014

Today, I am joining the Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge.  Each month we join together to share our artwork and easy, fun tutorials.  Won't you join in the fun and inspiration?  You can find more information on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog. Today, I am using the new Crafty Secrets Vintage Valentine Kit.



The great thing about this kit is the beautiful vintage Valentine printouts that are so easy to use.


I printed these out on cream cardstock and cut around them.  Then I folded the envelope patterns on the lines and glue them together.  


I then added buttons, ribbons, vintage trims and lace to complete these gorgeous love messages.


For the paper cone, I used a doiley and formed it into a cone shape... gluing it together. 


I then added a bowing with crinkled seam binding, then a cute little Valentine's ticket to complete.  To give it a full look, I added some pink tulle and shredded book pages.  Then tuck in your special treat for your 
loved one. Who wouldn't want to get a vintage rhinestone pin?  I would!



I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy tutorial. Come back this Friday for another fun Photoshop Tutorial. Hope to see you here!

Head on over to the Crafty Secrets Blog where you can link up and post a project you completed using Crafty Secrets products.

These are just scrumptious, Sheila! I love all the thoughtful little touches. The shredded book pages are such a good idea...and the doily cone with the rhinestone pin is drool-worthy! Wonderful tutorial!

As I said before...a feast for the eyes. I took ages looking at all the detail on this. I've looked at it a number of times but this time I noticed the darling little text heart tag. Just beautiful!
