From The Heart and a simple tutorial

It is time for Flourishes Friday post.  This week I chose to use the newly released set From The Heart.  This set is so lovely.  It was illustrated by Becky Fleck.  So many possibilities..

From The Heart.

I stamped the heart onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  All of the embellishments and paper you see here are from the new 123 Sweet Nothings Create Kit.  I took the little heart embellishments from Prima in this kit and created my own stick pins. Super easy.  

 Just take a pair of wire snips and cut off the head of a sewing pin.  Then add two hearts one on each side of the pin. I hot glued mine in place.  It is like a sandwich with the pin in the middle.  

Then I cut out my From The Heart with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped heart with my Grand Calibur.  I used the Spellbinders Heart die to cut out a felt heart for my stick pins.  Super easy embellishment.  

Today is the last day to take advantage of Flourishes 10% off New Release Bundle.  Check it out HERE.
