Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

Hello friends! I hope you are having a great week so far! I've been wanting to play along in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hops that occur every month, but each time the date comes around, I end up too busy with life and/or other commitments.

After seeing Nichole's challenge (to use an uninked or dusty PTI set), I had hoped to be able to play. Although my morning didn't start off well, I managed to squeeze a little crafting time in this afternoon.. here's what I came up with..

I decided to pull out a few uninked sets.. first, I created some patterned paper (left side) by stamping the text from Background Basics: Hearts with Pure Poppy ink. I added a strip of heart patterned paper next to it (from Simple Valentine). For my circular image / sentiment panel, I embossed the white heart border from 2010 Love Tags. Next, I popped the little Happy Valentine's Day sentiment (from Tiny Treats: Valentine) in the center and stitched all of this onto a Lacey Circle.

I added more stitching around around my panel, tied some ribbon around and added a little yo-yo heart embellishment that I made with some chiffon fabric. I sprayed it with some Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist and added a pearl to the center. Here's a detail shot:

I can't wait to hop around and see all the creations (complete link list is here).. thanks so much for stopping by!
