Valentine Framed Art Sampler

Hi Crafty Friends!

Are you one of those people who decorate for each holiday? I'm one of those people who wish that I did. I love looking at the seasonal decorations at the store, and sometimes I do buy them and display them. But I can't quite make that seasonal magic happen (except maybe at Christmas, I think I do ok then). And I love the Valentine's Day stuff. It's so pretty all the reds and pinks and whites and the hearts. I love the hearts! So you'll understand why I am so pleased with this sampler.

I adore the All My Love suite in the Occasions catalog. The paper is so sweet! And the Be Mine Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, seriously, you need them.

Let's get the measurements out of the way, then we can take a closer look.

Large Square: Whisper White, 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", Flirty Flamingo, 4 5/8" x 4 5/8", Lovely Lipstick, 4 3/4" x 4 3/4", DSP, 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" and 1" x 4 1/2"
Rectangle: DSP, 2" x 4 1/2", Flirty Flamingo, 2 1/8" x 4 5/8", Lovely Lipstick, 2 1/4" x 4 3/4"
Small Squares: DSP, 2" x 2", Flirty Flamingo, 2 1/8" x 2 1/8", Lovely Lipstick, 2 1/4"x 2 1/4"
Crumb Cake, 8 1/4" x 8 1/4", Flirty Flamingo, 8 5/8" x 8 5/8", Lovely Lipstick, 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"Whisper White, 9" x 9"

It's so bright and cheerful and it looks great on my shelf.

Let's take a closer look at the different parts of the sampler. When your putting a sampler together, use Stampin' Dimensionals liberally! (That is if you are using a shadowbox frame, as I am here. This is a 9" x 9" Belmont shadowbox frame from Michael's).

Banners for You with the coordinating dies, Bunches of Banners (I just love them!). I gave the I love you sentiment a teeny bit of bend when I mounted it on the block so that it would fit in the banner nicely. And isn't that stitched heart adorable? All My Love Ribbon.

All My Love DSP and die cuts. I heat embossed the Flirty Flamingo heart in white.

More pretty die cut hearts and DSP.

Same suite of products, plus the love die cut from the Well Written Framelit Dies. Use our adhesive sheets under the words and the detailed hearts.

The Sampler class is coming up on January 23rd. Rsvp by the 21st (or sooner, only 12 spots) to join the fun. This is also available as a Class to Go (no stamped images, but everything cut and die cut and ready to be assembled) for $25 plus shipping. Or as a completed piece for $30 plus shipping.
