A Crafty Soiree #76

Oh I had so much fun visiting all the links and seeing all the fabulous Valentine's Day projects.  Let kick off this par-tay with our features and the love fest begin!
I love how quick and simple but elegant the Embellished Candles from Life of a Cheap Chickadee are.
Holly's Pretty in Pink mantle from Bella Nest is so romantic and girly.  She's put a lot of thought and made several little projects for it.  I can't believe how great those little glass hearts from the dollar section look on her pillar candles.  Now I am kicking myself for passing those up.  Also love how she embellished her hurricanes!
Cheap Crafty Mama has a simple project you can do with your littles to get them into Valentine's Day.  I've done this before and the kids have so much fun it's worth the mess, a great sensory activity!
Owls continue to be really popluar and Katie from The Terpblog has a super sweet specimen art project that uses a punch that also embosses.  I know, get out...how cool is that.  My punches must be ancient because none of them do anything cool like that. 

I really appreciated how she discussed tips for using the punch and especially her secret for her well written message.  Did you know they make chalk markers?!  Maybe I am the last person to find out about them, but now I know how all those bloggers make their writing super cute on their chalkboard tags!  I am going to buy some this weekend...and probably that punch too!
I leave you with one of the most awe worthy sweetie pie dresses I've seen in awhile.  Love, love, love it and how Cheryl from Sew Can Do even used heart shaped buttons.  The aqua and red is just so delicious!  I am having serious sewing envy!
