Hanging Valentine Ornament

I adore the season of love... Valentines!  No better way to show that you care than to send someone a little love!  I admit that I go out of my way to decorate, to create hand-stamped and hand-crafted gifts... I remember the day I didn't receive a special Valentine.. so creating gifts is my way to showing that everyone is super important.  (Just wait and see what we have designed for over 100 kids at our school!!)

Create this 'hanging valentine' with:
Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (#126926)
Real Red card stock (#102482)
Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (#119251)
Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#133439)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#133439)
Hot Glue
Cutting these Large hearts of the beautiful Black and Vanilla Modern Medley Designer Series Paper using the Hearts Collection Framelits on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform.
 
Score and fold in 1/2.  Using the Hot Glue gun adhere the Ribbon to the center of one of the hearts.
Cutting the Real Red hearts out with the next size down on the Hearts Collection Framelits.  Score and Fold 1/2 way.
Adhere each of the Modern Medley hearts to the backs of each other... creating this four sided 3D heart ornament. 
 
Add the Real Red Hearts to the center of each heart for this cool and classic Valentine. 
 
This reminds me of when my oldest was the Cheshire Cat in her school's play 'Alice in Wonderland'... the Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter would just LOVE this (lol).
Yes, I used BOTH SIDES of this beautiful double-sided paper.  WHY??  Much like my 2 year old walks around in two different shoes, she gets double the fashion that way!  So yes.. have fun and mix it up.. it's coordinated so it looks 'maaaavolous' and adds interest to this cool 3D Hanging Valentine!
DON'T MISS OUT!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
