Good Morning Friends and welcome to the Valentine's Day Blog Hop hosted by Nicolette of Beyond Scrapin'.  This is Day 2 of 2. You should have arrived here from Playing with Paper.  If you just happened upon my blog today, please be sure to start with Nicolette as there will be great projects and blog candy along the way!  I am offering blog candy as well.  Please leave a comment and become a follower.  You must be a follower to win!  I will be picking one random name from the combined blog hops today so be sure to leave a comment on each of my hops for an extra chance to win!  I will be giving away a surprise bag of scrapping goodies. :)

As you can see, this hop is all about Valentine's Day!  I have a few Valentine's cards to post that I created last year or the year before.  I apologize if I've posted them before, but so many of you are new since then that I figured most of you won't have seen them anyways.  Hope you enjoy! :)

Please click on each picture for a larger view and all the details.  These were made from foam kits I got at the $1 store last year and were sent to my MIL to use for the grandkids.  I can't believe how cute they turned out, but I added a lot of detail to make them much more fancy. ;)

 I put the cupcake together, added some random foam hearts and then added Stickles and used my Zig pens for faux stitching around the hearts on top.
 First I decided to thread the white heart with ribbon (love the way that turned out), then I decided to use my Zig pens and totally dress up the foam rose and added it to the white heart.  I put on a few red foam hearts and adhered the whole white heart to the big red heart and there ya have it!

For this one I outlined the letters with a Zig pen and added a little doodled heart to the "B".  I then added the bees and used Stickles on them and my Zig pen for faux stitching.  I outlined the "Mine" with my Stickles as well.  Super simple and so sweet!

Anytime you see these little foam kits, I recommend purchasing them and putting them together with your own touches for kids.  They love them!  


Thanks so much for joining us this weekend!  Don't forget to leave a comment and become a follower to be entered in the drawing for my blog candy.  I am the final stop on this hop.

XO ~ Amy Jo
