I just love this vinyl saying, which is new to our vinyl collection. I think it works perfectly for the upcoming holiday but would fit into any ones home all year round. All you need is an MDF board, desired color of acrylic paint, 3 decorative hooks (we used black spray paint to change out the color of the hooks), vinyl saying, ribbon, 3-5x5 frames, some pattern paper, a little ribbon and a few 4x6 cropped to 4x4. The best part is that Crafts direct carries all these supplies to recreate this masterpiece,

Day 8: Love to you card - What better way is there to let someone know you love them, than by making them a handmade card. This card was designed by Heather who helps Sarah Lynn design cards for our Card Chaos Classes. I love the technique she used on this card to create the heart on the front. Here is a list of supplies and instructions to make your own.
5 ½” x 8 ½” kraft cardstock
5 ¼” x 4” Love Me Do “Rock & Roll Heart” paper (red polka dot side) by My Mind’s Eye
1 ½” x 4” Love Me Do “Rock & Roll Heart” paper (yellow w/red hearts side) by My Mind’s Eye

Zip dry paper glue
- Stamp “love to you” sentiment onto white cardstock. Let dry.
- Stamp polka dot heart over sentiment with Versamark ink. Use clear embossing powder to emboss polka dot heart image.

Day 4: Calendar - This calendar would be a lovely addition to any home, and the best part is that it is all magnetic, so it can be changed out easily from month to month. It just takes a sheet of calendar paper, miscellaneous embellishments and such to create the numbers, letters for the month (we used Thickers), and using the glue 527 to adhere the magnets to the back of the embellishments, & letters. It is a fun and easy craft and a great way to use up some odds and ends.

perfect for any dear in your life. It is cute and affordable. The perfect little gift for a teacher, co-worker, friend and/or neighbor. Pick up all the supplies you need to make this lovely notepad at Crafts Direct. Click on project sheet to enlarge.
How to put it all together:
Paint all the edges on each block, 2 blocks should be pink and two blue, let dry. From each of the 4 sheets of paper cut 6 squares of each pattern measuring 1.75"x1.75". Using Ultra Seal, adhere 6 squares of the same pattern on one block covering all sides. Repeat on the remaining three blocks. Cut out each letter of the vinyl word and apply a letter to each of the wood blocks, and display. How easy is that?

The frame was painted black with vinyl words added to some of the frames. Photos were added, then printed papers from Making Memories and coordinating embellishments were used to decorate the fronts and backs of the frames that didn't contain photos.
