Decorate to Celebrate #44 - Valentine/Love

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's time for a Decorate to Celebrate challenge!! We are happy to announce that Arin from A Piece of Life's Pie has joined our design team!! She is incredibly talented and her projects will definitely inspire you :)


For Challenge #44, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a Valentine Party or Event. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about hearts, love and Valentines with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my Valentines decorations, I created a rosette centerpiece. The paper is from My Mind's Eye Love Nest stack. The rosettes were cut with the Tim Holtz Paper Rosette die. I love making rosettes, and this die makes it so easy. No more getting out my scoreboard :) For the smaller ones, I just cut off about a quarter of an inch. The edges were inked with TH Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The letters are from TH's Idea-ology Alpha Parts Ransom.


The base is a jelly jar, painted white. Love is from the MME paper stack. The satin ribbon is from Joann. The button and heart charm are from Hobby Lobby.


I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Valentine Party project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

My sweetest friend, your rosette centerpiece is stunning! You know my love of rosettes, so these just made my heart happy dance something fierce! :o) I can only imagine the time saved using that die... it will absolutely be on my wish list! The papers are so beautiful and I love every design... the sweet centers and the way you spelled out love. :o) Then the front! The front is exquisite. I adore charms and the usage here is just fantastic. This is so lovely, Lisa. I totally want it in my crafty space.. although I'd probably twirls them all day instead of getting anything done. Hehe! :o) Stunning as ever, my talented friend! I hope you have a sparkly day! :o)

This is fantastic! I love the look of rosettes but am always worried they will stick up too much and get smashed on flat projects. This is a great way to use them and I wouldn't have to worry about that. I love the patterns on the word love, so much fun :)
