The secret of your own heart you can never know;
but you can know Him who knows its secret.

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #55

The Challange on Papertrey Ink's blog this week is to take a small stamp or die frame and make it larger. In the video, Dawn McVey takes a small frame stamp and stamps it beside the other to make it appear larger. I really don't have a stamp frame so I chose to enlarge a DOOR this:

This beautiful door frame is from the Papertrey Ink stamp collection called Door to Door. I really like it because of all the detail and the way you can color it to make it look like a door surrounded by stained glass...or if you stamp it twice, a window or frame.

While making this I thought it would be really fun for a bride and all her friends to make a bunch of these for her "Save The Date" announcements. Those who were lucky enough to receive one, could hang them up to remember that special date to come.

The bride could gather all her bridesmaids. Each friend would be given a crafting task...have an assembly line, and the cards would be done in no time!

Put A Little Sparkle On Your Buttons

I LOVE Papertrey Ink products. Especially their stamps. AND all the creativity that surrounds their products. Every Monday, Papertrey Ink and Nicole Heady feature a "how to" video called Make It Monday. This past week the video tutorial showed how to add some sparkle to your projects by glittering your own buttons. So very cute!Here's the little project I created using some of their beautiful stamps. The window, featured here, is from their stamp collection entitled "Home Made".

The Day of Hearts
