About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

I love you.....

Anyway you say it....
it still means a lot!!!!

I purchased these pencils from Hobby Lobby last year in the 
Valentine's clearance.
I always peruse the clearance rack to see what I can use.
I have those large plastic tubs for every holiday and just insert the 
items into the tubs until 
the next year and open and see what I can give out to the grands.

OK, back to the project.....

I inserted the pencils into these 2" X 8" cello bags (from Stampin' Up!)
I wanted a tag for the top.

I cut a dark pink base at 3-1/4" X 4-1/4" 
Scored one inch to make the base an even square of 3-1/4"

Cut the hands from My Community Cricut cart
and the hearts are from George and Basic Shapes Cricut cart.

Adhered the heart in the palm and folded the two fingers down to 
create the 
I LOVE YOU sign language symbol.
Then adhered the hands to the base layer.

Adhered them to the cello bags with tiny glue dots. 

Aren't they adorable.....love 'em.

Until later, lovlies.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!
