I love you frame

This is the first thing I made using my Silhouette. We don't do much for Valentine's around our house, but with all of the cute decor out there, I just couldn't resist making a little something.

"Be mine" seemed kind of silly, since we kind of already agreed to do that one, so I just went with "I love you". And you can't really see it from the pictures, but the white background is sparkly. This was fun to make and Madie even helped me.
I printed out the words in the font "Love Letters" from, took a piece of white cardstock put a coat of Mod Podge on it, sprinkled glitter on the Mod Podge, put the letters on the cardstock and then painted the frame pink and just tied a little bow around one side of the frame. Pretty fast and pretty kind of craft.
And here is our whole mantel (my dad built the brick wall and mantel and my mom painted the picture hanging up...I guess crafting is just in my genes). I think it needs something on the other side of the clock next to the taller vase of "carnations"...I'm just not sure what.

Do you like my little "carnations"? I bet you'll never guess what I used to make them (ok, you probably will).


  1. Cute! I love it!! Did you use coffee filters for the carnations?

  2. So cute! Ok how did you make your carnations?? I like that idea:) Stopping by from the ANything Goes Hop:)

  3. thanks for linking with type A, this is so cute. i just love valentines day decorations. really what girl doesn't love pink?

  4. That turned out SO cute! I have a bunch of stuff in storage right now adn I'm hoping I saved all my unwanted frams so I can make one of these. I never thought to turn them into holiday decorations. I love how the mantle turned out.

    Thanks for joining the party!


  5. I want to know HOW you did the carnations? And I LOVEEEE the glittery candle...I think I will have to copy!
