Guest Designer at ... Giveaway

Good day all,

Guess what...I am a guest designer over at  About a month ago I received an email from Georgiana asking me if I would be interested in being a guest designer and create a Valentine project.  OOOH YEAH!!!  Really, I screamed that when I read her email.  Thank goodness noone was in the house that day.  My family already thinks I am weird enough.  They really do not understand my crafting addiction. If this is your first time visiting my blog, please use the "subscribe to email" button on the right sidebar so you won't miss a posting.  If you would like, I would love it if you became a stalker follower. Hehehe. Anywhoooo thanks so much for joining me today and now without further ado....

I purchased a round foam shape at Michaels. I wanted a heart one, but they were all out of stock. Really? I had some red/white polka dot tissue paper lying around and knew that would be the perfect combination. I modpodged the tissue paper to the foam shape.
That went pretty quick.  I did let it dry overnight and it became very hard and glossy.  Love it.  Then I used my gypsy and just cut a lot of different shapes. 

I used A Child's Year and Gypsy Font for my letters.  Mixed and match them.  I used Gypsy Wanderings, Paisley and Wedding Solutions for the other items.  It was kind fun using a bunch of different carts at once.  I normally only use one or two different carts at a time. 

The banner was cut at 7.4 by 2.5 using white cardstock from the Wedding cart.  I inked around it in red and then used a heart stamp I got from the dollar bin at Michaels to randomly stamp the hearts on it.  I really like the way it turned out. 

I added a lot of rhinestones here and there to give it some bling.  I love the bling, bling.  LOL 

The 3 hearts pins I just added for some dimension. I have no idea where they came from but they came to good use. 

 I had this awesome ribbon that says "Happy Valentines Day" and used just one secion of it. 

 I hope you enjoyed my project and if you would become a follower and leave a comment I will be giving one lucky winner 24 inches of this awesome ribbon and two cuts.  I will pick a winner on the 3rd and ship it out right away so you have it in time for your Valentine's project.

As always, have a great day and god bless.
