Well, this is the week I've been working towards since before Christmas – the week when I have to have my first Create With Connie and Mary Occasions Edition projects done AND my sister-in-law and her husband are coming for a 10-day visit. Can you imagine all the different directions my mind will be traveling this week?!
For today, the direction is towards the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog and all the scraps of paper that have been flying all over the place as I've been trying to finish projects and challenge cards! Among the flying papers are the insides of a bunch of windows I've been making with the Sizzix Hearts Framelits (in the Occasions Mini Catalog, of course). You'll see the fab card I made with those right here on Wednesday. But today I'm featuring the "leftovers."
This card has four of the hearts left over from making windows – all of them from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper – which is my favorite paper set from the Occasions Mini. The sentiment is one of the 11 in the Occasions Mini Stamp Set, Loving Thoughts, and it's stamped on the banner from another Occasions Mini Stamp Set, Take it to Heart.
The final touch to go with all those hearts is one of the Trinket Hearts from the mini. I bought them to use with my Simply Adorned Jewelry, but decided this one would be perfect for this card. I hope you think so, too!
And speaking of the Create With Connie and Mary Occasions Edition, today is the start of Preview Week!
