Be Mine..and some Candy!!

Happy Tuesday-that feels like Monday-everyone! We had the kids home from school yesterday and while it was as crazy as ever at our house, I was excited to get some of things made! I've been trying harder to use what I have to make decor for our home. I figure I sepnd the $ on things I love, why not use them in my home...they make me so happy!!

This "Be Mine" banner went together relatively quickly, I had seen the pennates at Ben Franklin(my favorite place to browse lately) and have had them since right before I had Max. I was going to make a Christmas banner...but let's just say that didn't happen! They are chipboard and made by Paper Accents.

I picked up some great new MM valentine paper at Paper Zone on Saturday and was happy to have stopped in on a day when everything in the store was on sale...it was so fun! I am totally in love with the whole line, it's called "Je t'adore". I love the romantic feeling of several of the papers, the and the fresh clean lines of the stripes and polka dots! It's pefect valentine paper! I paired it up with some other MM paper, the black paper is from the Paper Reverie line. IT is SO delicious...don't wonderful products make the creation process so fun!? Here are some close up photos....I used some Tulle, MM glittered letters(YEA!! I've had these for a LONG time!), and some misc. ribbons.


I hope that you are having a great day! I've got a few other Valentine Decorations to share, so will do so in the next few days!:) I started something this morning that I really didn't want to do...I'm purging my craft space!! I've got some things that I haven't touched for over a year...am I safe to help them find another home!?
I haven't done blog candy for a while...so here goes my first blog candy of 2011! It's a BIG one...but super fun!! I've got a product that has only been used 5 or 6 times and is perfect condition. It will help you cut shapes, borders, etc. It has a really fun name, it has 1 Z in it's name(so I can't spell...sorry!)! The first person to comment with the proper name of this product will win it! You are welcome to comment and leave some love, even if you don't need a new die cut machine!;)
Thank you all for being so supportive and for the great friendships I've made though sharing my passion for creating!! I hope you enjoy the things I share...I appreciate hearing what you think!:) Have a great day...and remember to smile until your cheeks hurt!!

Great banner and love the "Be Mine" designs. Perhaps you're referring to a Wizard, Jen! Isn't Paper Zone a fun place to browse? Never leave there without buying something I feel I must have ~ probably the same goes for you.

Love your banner. Your giveaway is so generous.

My guess is a QuicKutz Revolution Love diecut machine.

Thank you so much.
