LOVE is in the Air Week - Day#1: Heart Happiness LOVE Banner

DOstamper Love is in the Air Week!  See ideas for Valentine's Day using Stampin' Up! products #dostamping #stampinup #hearthappiness #valentinesday #love

With just one month away, Valentine's Day is approaching fast.  To help you get ready, I'm doing a "Love is in the Air" week.  I'll have some fun LOVE projects ranging from cards to decor, treats & more!  Hey, that rhymes!  

Several of the projects I'll be sharing throughout the week will feature the new Heart Happiness stamp set.145769-HeartHappiness

The Heart Happiness stamp set is full of hearts.  You may have overlooked this sweet heart set on page 20 of the 2018 Occasions Catalog.   It coordinates with the Annual Catalog Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies AND the NEW 2018 Occasions Catalog Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.  You can never have enough hearts...can you?

My first project is surprisingly quick & easy, and definitely cute!  Take a look at this cute LOVE banner...

Hang this sweet LOVE Banner on your door or entry-way mirror to dress up your home for Valentine's Day.  It would also be cute for weddings & showers.

How'd She DO That tips for LOVE Banner:

  1. Stamps: Heart Happiness
  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White (four hearts using Sweet & Sassy Framelits size #6 straight heart - see below, plus scraps for flowers)
    • Powder Pink (four hearts using Sweet & Sassy Framelits size #8 straight heart - see below)
    • Basic Black (scraps for Large Letter Dies) 
  3. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  4. Stampin' Blends:  Pink Pirouette (dark), Rich Razzleberry (light), Olive Olive - combo pack
  5. Other:  Big Shot, Sweet & Sassy Framelit Dies Large Letters Framelit Dies, Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (mini clothespins),  Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals (pop up small flowers)
  6. Tip: 
    • Your banner can be short or longer, depending on how far you space each heart out.
    • Start by laying the hearts out on a flat surface to your desired spacing.
    • Measure out a length of ribbon the length of all the hearts & spacing, with at least 18" extra on EACH side (or longer depending on where you'll hang the banner)
    • Then starting from the center of the ribbon working out from each side - attach letters to ribbon with mini clothes pins (or use glue dots for permanent placement)
