Hi! I'm so excited to share with you the challenge we were given for this month: Make something for Valentine's Day. How fun!
Last week, a few friends and I went out to supper to say farewell to a dear friend who is moving to Colorado. :( We are all going to miss her so much! Anyway, I guess the saying is true that you never know when inspiration is going to hit. Because my friend Carol had something that TOTALLY inspired me! It was this:
So what makes this camera unique? It takes instant Polaroid pictures...about the size of a credit card! Super cool!
And it gave me an idea. How fun would it be to create a layout where the photo mats looked like polaroid pictures?! This layout was so easy to make! I only used one Cricut cartridge for it!

And my little "faux" polaroid:
And finally, the adorable stamped sentiment:
For my layout, I used the My Pink Stamper "From the Heart" set which I LOVE!!! It has so many wonderful sayings on it. (and did I mention it's a BIGGIE set? You can check it out here. :)
My Pink Stamper "From the Heart" stamp set
Cricut Sweethearts cartridge (Love cut at 2 3/4", keys cut at 1 3/4")
Photo Mats: White - (3) @ 3 3/4 x 5; Polka Dot paper (3) @ 3 1/2 x 3 1/2"
Striped border (2) @ 2 1/2 x 12
Small red strips - (2) @ 1/4 x 12"
Hearts were made using both a 1 1/2 and 1 1/4 punch.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Bic Mark it Markers
Patterned Paper is from the Reminisce Love Collection ("Sweet Dots" & "Love Lines")
** A couple of notes: I inked around the edges of all hearts. I also outlined between each line on the striped paper using my markers...just to give it a bit more definition. Pop dots were used behind all the smaller hearts to add a bit more layering to my layout. **
Have a great day everyone and please be sure to visit My Pink Stamper for more great Valentine ideas! :)
