Reverse Confetti Blog Hop


The Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friends are back with another blog hop and you'll see that love is in the air as you check out all the wonderful projects that are anything but a card! This was so much fun for me that I couldn't stop with just one project.  First up are two creations that play on the words of the sentiment "Love You To Pieces" from the January release set: Heart Filled Sentiments.  


I re-purposed puzzle pieces to create this ornament (everyone has that puzzle box with missing pieces, so this is an idea for you!).  I used acrylic paint (Liquitex Cadmium Red Deep Hue) then splattered gold paint over all the pieces.  I adhered the pieces together in a heart shape using Tombow Multi Mono liquid glue.  Here you can see it hanging on the wall.

Items used for the tag:
STAMPS: Heart Filled Sentiments, Garden Bunch
PAPER: Very Merry 6x6 pad, Lime Green
DIES: Pierced Round Top Layers, Tag Me, Leafy

My second play on the sentiment is a jar filled with Reese's Pieces candy - a door prize I'm donating for our church's annual Valentine banquet.  It's so easy to add a tag to a Mason jar with a special topper!

 
Last, but not least, here is a fun way to dress up a plain frame...

 
This recent photo of our 18 month old grandson was too sweet not to frame!  Those dimples with that great smile make my heart melt!  I Copic-colored these cute images from the Heart Spots stamp set and attached a banner with another sentiment from Heart Filled Sentiments
