I should be...

My list of to do's is quite full this morning, but had to pop in to say have a wonderful weekend and I will be back Tuesday with a few new items to least that is the plan for now. Don't forget to post of comment HERE for to enter my current giveaway.

I don't know if you have ever dove into your stamps and notice just how many sets come with hearts of all sizes and designs. I did just that yesterday and decided I would challenge myself to use a variety of hearts, die cut labels and sentiments to create a set of tags.

On the tag above I used a heart border stamp to create the background, layered die cut labels with my sentiments and used a heart punch to add the two red hearts to the right. This tag is probably my favorite. I used the sentiment as my stamped background, layered die cut labels, used a small heart to create the blue accents on the scallop label and used a die cut for the hearts.Finally, I used this heart from a Maya Road stamp set to create a floral background and the stamped hearts on the die cut labels. I used the "i love you" sentiment on the label and cut out a little floral scroll from My Girls Paperie paper scrap.

I used a variety of paper scraps I have all with the same colors in mind with each tag. So I challenge you to pull from your scrap bins, dig into your stamps, put to use those die cuts and start creating. You may be amazed by how many different ways you can use a heart.

Hope the sun is shining where you are today like it is here and I will be back next week to share more. Don't forget to enter the giveaway on the previous post if you haven't already. Thank you for stopping by!
