Valentine’s Decor

I know that it's a little late posting this, but I had to share.  This year I actually wanted to decorate for Valentine’s day.  I decided to just make a few things that didn’t cost much money or take much time.  I decided to make a little plate (that I found at the dollar store) and then some wood blocks that said Love on it. 
Here is the plate that I made.

For the conversation hearts on the side, I used CRR and copied the same heart over and over again.  Then I added text to them.  Make sure when you put the text onto the heart, click the don’t weld button.  Then I used my Expressions 2 and cut out the vinyl.

I used a pink glitter vinyl for the middle, I love how it sparkles!  This saying came from the cartridge Sesame Street.

I had fun coming up with the conversation hearts, I felt like I was in jr. high again Smile.  The heart came from the cartridge Close to My heart and the font is CRR basics.

For the Love blocks, I cut a 2x4 into four pieces.  The sizes were 6”, 5” 4,” and 3 1/2”.  I painted them white and added some paper with mod podge.  The font came from the cartridge Simply Sweet

I used the same pink glitter vinyl for the heart.  I added some washi tape and some heart rhinestones to the L.

I wrapper wire around the block and then curled the end.
