Valentine's Day Home Decor

Yesterday I shared a card and a little box done using just one set of Framelits dies - Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4PK - Hearts, Scallop #2. As I explained yesterday,  I made these projects a couple of years ago for an article for Sizzix. It was a featured called One Die many ways, which sometimes is very challenging. However, this one turned up one of my all time favourite projects.

As the base paper I used an old book pages. As they are very fragile and I intended to spray them, I sprayed Craft Mount to a piece of off white smooth card covered in the old book pages, then repeat the same on the back, die cut and then spray. This extra step will make the hearts last the spraying and the hanging

Walking back from the doctors I found this branch on the sidewalk and thought that will come in handy one day. Indeed it was for this project. I used a silver thin thread to attach them together. To colour the dies I used Dylusions sprays. Here I used Postbox Red, Lemon Zest, Fresh Lime, Squeezed Orange.

This was my favourite project from the set. Using the largest die, one medium one and the smallest, die cut them all out of book pages and coloured only the smallest. I folded them and glue them to each other on the spine. The pearl is one of the Tim Holtz Baubles. The paper is Basic Grey.

I hope you like them.
Happy Valentine's Day for friday!
