valentines diy part 2


valentines diy part 2

this one is also very simple to do. let's get to it!

supplies you will need:
cut out hearts
washi tape or ribbon
card stock
corner punch (optional)

step 1:

punch out your corners
 (for those of you who don't have one go on to step 2)

step 2:
place ribbon or washi tape in the middle of your card

step 3:
place your hearts in the middle of the ribbon or tape using glue. i put them in order from largest to smallest but you can put them anyway you want.

step 4:
embellish your card i put dashes on both sides of the ribbon but you can do zig zags, scallops, lines, just about anything you want.

valentines diy

valentines diy! 
 i will make two posts one for each card because i feel like it would be a very long post. so let's get started!

  gather supplies

you will need:
card stock any color you like (i used red)
things to trace /hand draw hearts or you could use punches if you have them
exacto knife
self healing mat/card board

step 1: 
draw or trace hearts and cut them out. you can put them any where i just did them in the right hand corner because that's where they looked cute to me and you can make them any size too.

step 2: 
cut a piece of card stock to fill your heart holes 

and glue in place

step 3: 
embellish your card i put scallops on my plain red card stock to add some interest as well as dashes so it looks like embroidery.

step 4:
to make use of the card stock in the back of your hearts i put some washi tape to secure it down and wrote xo just so it doesn't look not thought about but if you don't like seeing it you can always just put a piece of colored paper the size of the card back. 

volla a valentine in just 4 steps!

i also wanted to share the valentines i did for the fibers club! i hope you like them, they are just variations  with the same message. 

stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow!

go steelers!

living in Pennsylvania let's face it it's a huge deal that the steelers are going to the superbowl.  like my outfit? it's just a black tank with a yellow sweater better than a jersey and day.

wish list

these new finds at anthropologie melt my heart.

if i had all the money in the world just to buy clothes these would be at the top of my list.
i think i might even try to make my own version of this sculpted blouse because i love it so much but i can't afford it on a students salary. ill be back later with my valentine diy and pics for the ones i did yesterday.

getting ready for valentines

i say it every time but this time its true i am gonna make a valentines card diy! yes yes its true. i will be making it and posting it tomorrow. but today i did make some valentines for the fibers class sale.  yes i'm a wimp i have been in the same position for 5 yes 5 hours and now my back hurts but its all worth it! i love them. i will show you mine a little later on (sneak peek picture above).  right now i'm off to relax my back and maybe paint my nails again. mix the colors one on top of each other (because they work really well and don't chip as easy as others.) have a good weekend and keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for my diy!

new things like sweaters and nail polish

right now i'm sitting in my little house waiting for the huge winter storm to hit. it makes me a little nervous knowing that it might snow rain. i'm afraid that it will freeze shut everything. i've been wearing tons of sweaters i just bought a new one from arie. i have been coveting it since it first came out and i got it half price! yes!

i also got one of the new nail polishes that katy perry and opi made. normally i wouldn't get anything that celebrities endorse or creative direct (thanks lady gaga for ruining polaroid for me) but i couldn't help it the colors were just to good to pass up. i got a light pink (teenage dream) and the gun metal pink (the one that got away)  so i'm off to paint my nails and wait this storm out! for those of you on the east coast stay safe and warm
