This week we are bringing you TONS of Valentine's Day inspiration using the Valentina collection, along with some pieces from our everyday collections sprinkled in here and there. I asked our talented designers to focus on fun little projects, and they did not disappoint! We have a fabulous mix of projects to share with you this week.
Ombre Heart Canvas, by Heather Leopard.
I wanted to create something fun-loving and festive for our entryway for Valentine's Day. I was strolling through the craft supply store looking for items to make a different project when I stumbled across some canvases and that's when inspiration hit me. I originally planned to paint the horizontal lines on the canvas and as fun as that would be, I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to use pattern paper. I'm glad I did because I love the subtlety of the "love" words in the background. I cut those in 1" strips and used mod podge to adhere them to the canvas. Next, I cut 1" flowers from one sheet of ombre pattern paper. My original plan was to mix up the colored flowers throughout the heart but another last minute decision came along and I decided to arrange the flowers in the ombre design. Lastly, I added white, pink, dark pink and red enamel dots to some of the flowers.

Valentine's Day Treat Boxes, by Kristine Davidson.
Yes, Valentine's Day is coming soon! Using the Valentina Collection was perfect for my little boxes of treats for my co-workers! They would be great for kids to make to share in school as well. Very inexpensive to make and so much fun! I used some cut files from the silhouette store and was able to create tons of these little treat boxes.
