BBTB2/Heart

It's February 4th and I have a winner of the Heart Tote. Congrats to JustYolie. Please email me quickly with your address, Yolie, and I will get this in the mail to you. Thanks to all for leaving sweet comments and joining in on our BBTB2 blog hop candy fun.
BLOG HOP BLOG HOP BLOG HOP
Our BBTB2 hostess this week is the very talented Maria. She asked us to design from Love Struck 2010 cartridge and we were to use more than one of the hearts on the cartridge. I don't have that cartridge, and since we can select a heart from any other cartridge, I went to my wonderful very first cartridge, Basic George. I cut 5 sizes of hearts, I embossed each heart and pop dotted them into layers. I added a red ribbon on the shadow cut in white before I began to stack the red hearts. Finally, I added a red heart jewel.
The reverse side of this heart hanger has been duplicated with all 5 layers. I must admit, if the frame opening was a wee bit larger, then the pretty double sided heart would twirl within the opening. However, I didn't have 12x12 black paper so I had to make a smaller frame.


I had the welded word LOVE (from Opposites Attract) laying around so I added it to the corner of the frame. I used a spare heart die to place in the upper right corner of the open frame. The open frame is cut from Live Simply cartridge. I cut four....I cut 3 in white, glued those together to create a sturdy backdrop, then the black frame was pop dotted.
I've added a heart pin to accommodate the ribbon for the hanging heart display. The sentiment is a rubber stamp and that was embossed to add texture.

For my blog hop offering, I have a cute little tote that has been sewn with pillow ticking fabric and small red hearts. There is a red embroidery fancy heart in the center of the tote, and a red ribbon added for decoration. Please leave a comment and on February 4 I will do a draw for a winning name. Please check back after 2:00PM that day for the announcement and if you are the winner, please email me quickly so I can mail the tote to you. If I do not hear from the winner by February 7, I will do another draw.
Thanks for your visit. I appreciate you very much. I hope you came to visit from Lori's blog and in the tradition of a blog hop, please hop over to Sandi's blog and see what wonderful wonders she has in store to see.
