Valentine's Day Frame

Do you decorated your house for Valentines day? In the past I haven't... but this year I thought I would... My daughter loves drawing and making hearts, so I think she will appreciate the little love I'm spreading around the house. Here is my latest project... a Valentine's Day Frame! So simple and yet so sweet!


The best part about this project is that all you have to do is remove the picture and re-use your frame for the next holiday! (I also chose not to use the glass from the frame, I simply placed it behind the picture... this way you always know where the glass is!)


This image was created in the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. To do this, chose your fonts, colour them in, and then print. Next, I used the heart SVG from here, to add some dimension and interest to the image. To make my life easier, I added a score line down the middle of the hearts, and cut them out with the Cameo. (Way easier then to score each heart in the middle by hand!) Embellish to your liking, place it in your frame... and voila, the perfect Valentines Day frame!

Happy Crafting :)

    1. Thanks so much, glad to inspire you... I usually don't do Valentines decor either, but have to say I'm quite enjoying the little touches around the house... guess I'm trying to fill the Christmas void, lol!
