What's Hot for February?

Back again with a quick post for the month that was FEBRUARY!!!! Yes it is almost done and dusted is this year flying by or what?

Ok back to the job at hand, Feb is of coarse the month of Valentines day and we all know it is a day of Hearts... but out there in the crafting world I have noticed that hearts are so the thing right now, they can be so versatile, masculine as well as for the girlies.

So in honour of "The Heart" I got into my "heart groove" and produced some cards that can be used for anything really. I tried to keep them generic with no gender bias at all, so here are my efforts very simple and quick (that seems to be the priority for me right now).

 Hearts are so easy to cut out yourself no need to go to the expense of buying manufactured ones use your scrap PP's!!!!

For even hearts just fold your paper in half and cut, open it up and you have a perfect heart!

So quick and used my stash never ending as that is!

 For a cheap chipboard look why not just use any old cardboard... I used a backing board off a paper pad ( yes I don't throw anything out..... just in case) cut it out then stamped some script over the top. You could even cover the board with some tissue or PP, then cut for some dimension easy peasy!

I did cheat a bit for the heart above, I used an old punch I had from way back, called a brush stroke heart I think. It is ancient, as I used it to make my wedding invites about 18 years ago!!!! Wow!! That takes me back and makes me feel very...... mature!!!!

On that note, must go. Give THE OLD HEART A SHOT ladies would love to see what you can come up with!!

Hearts to y'all,
