Craft Hoarders Challenge for Feb

Yep it's my favorite time of the month again with our shares from the 
Craft Hoarders Design Team!  Our challenge this month was to create a
Valentine, anniversary, wedding or other love themed project so i thought about it
and realized I had the perfect heart box and papers that i have been hoarding
so this put me in high gear to finally do something with it.  

It's nice that I had lots of things to use from the Craft Hoarders chart as you can see.
I used a chipboard heart box that i had gotten along time ago and first step was 
to cover the top with papers from MME Lost and Found Record it collection.
I also had the chipboard pieces and the ephemera pieces so i layered those with 3D
foam dots on the top and mixed in some Want2Scrap chipboard hearts that i had too.
 I am lovin the natural chipboard color so i kept some of it natural and then
chalked it with my favorite Tsukineko chalk ink in Gingerbread.  

And here is a closeup of some of the goodies that i layered on the top.  I also
used the bling letters and added a bit more red stickles on the other things to
glitter them up a little to match.  And i put in a little bit of twine just because i love it.

To finish off the edge better i sound some pretty lacy pearls so i glued that on
with adhesive.  For my die cuts i used the Bitty Blossom leaf die and tucked
a bunch of them under all the Bo Bunny flowers that i used.  It was really
a fun project to make and doing Valentines it gave me the opportunity to
over do it and use lots of the goodies that i had.  I even made a little card
to go with it.  I am going to put little love notes in it and cookies for my DH
for Valentines so i think it will be fun.  

Here is a list of the products i used:

Papers and goodies from My Minds Eye- Lost and Found Valentines Collection
Bling: Red Stickles
Ink: Tsukineko Chalk Ink in Gingerbread
Spray Mist: Tsukineko Shimmer Spray in Gold
Lace and Tulle: in my stash
Twine: Natural twine from May Arts

Distressing on the edges
Chipboard Heart Box and Scalloped hearts
Flowers: Bo Bunny and Prima
Scotch Quick dry Adhesive to hold it all together
