Project Pinterest

Today I'm linking up with Sarah from its on the tip of my tounge for Project Pinterest!

This is the original project:
I love this, but in blue :)
Click on the picture to go directly to the pin :)

And this is my version:

I changed up the colors to go with our living room. To make the insert, I cut a piece of pretty scrapbook paper (Echo Park Splash Collection Fish paper, this is the back side) to fit the mat, and printed the sentiment in navy blue on a piece of transparency paper. Then, I cut the heart out of navy blue paper using my Sizzix eclips and the starter cartridge, and stuck it to the transparency.
*Sorry for the very odd angle, I kept getting my reflection in the glass instead of the actual saying!

I love this heart, I think its one of my favorite hearts of all time, so it totally deserved a close up!





The Rules:
1. Decide which pin you'd like to recreate.
2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin's url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers' posts!





Have a wonderful Friday and an awesome weekend! I can't wait for the weekend to start! We are going out for Valentine's Day on Saturday - but all the of details are a surprise for me! I'm just supposed to be dressed up and ready to go by 6:30pm. I also have to organize all of my stamps...they are in a mess on the floor right now! Do you have any fun plans, maybe finding some time to be crafty?
