Joyful Heart tags

Happy Wednesday!

Our weather has been crazy here in PA.  Last week we had 'subzero temps' and this week it feels like springtime! very strange!

I have a fun gift idea to share with your scrappy friends for Valentine's Day.

If you purchase both the 6x6 and 12x12 pads of a specific designer paper collection, you can use the 6x6 to create tags, embellishments, etc. then give your handmade items along with the 12x12 paper pad to a scrappy friend as a lovely coordinating gift set!

Aren't the detailed hearts lovely?

Materials used:

Joy's Life stamps (Joyful Hearts)
My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Union Square) papers
Zva Creative gems, MFT die-namics heart die,
Hot off the Press wing stamp, MS border punch,
Sizzix flourish die, SU! word window punch,
CM circle punch, hole punch, vintage seam binding,
SU! ink pad, Ranger clear embossing powder.

Praying joy, peace and much love over you today!

I also shared today's creation with -
Tuesday Throwdown, Flonz Craft vintage stamping challenge

I wrote this post while designing for Joy's Life.
