But it is true! Today is the day! We are half way through January. Valentines day is less than a month away. Over the years Valentines has become one of my favorite holidays (lets be honest, Christmas is exhausting). Hatters may say what they wish but I love the occasion. Why wouldn't you love a day to celebrate the good and happy things in your life? Everyone loves someone ... and that is reason to celebrate!
I picked up this in expensive frame from IKEA recently. I thought our super cute Valentine products from the Occasions Catalogue would be the perfect pairing for a Valentine decor piece.
The Designer Series Paper Stacks fit the 4x6 frame almost perfectly as a background. I used a little washi tape around all four sides of the DSP to hold it in place against the frame backing board.
I adhered the photo with washi tape and added a little stamping and embellishing. I left the glass in the frame and before I put my hand-stamped page in I sprinkled some punched silver foil hearts. It was a fun detail that makes it a giant shaker!
The picture in this frame does not have to be a hunky man like Arturo. You could display your love of a pet, child, vacation spot ... just celebrate love!!
Before I go I have to share one more photograph. I created this project over the Christmas break when my kiddies were home. My "medium" girl S was a great helper and insisted I take a photo of her with the frame.
