Love Ya Vellum + Paper Heart Banner

It is with great sadness that I welcome you to (probably) the last Valentine's post on the blog. *collective cries* I know, I know. I've been enjoying the past two weeks so much so. I've learned a lot throughout the process of creating projects everyday and posting them the next. It wasn't easy but the outcomes have made me so happy. As my final project I created a banner using the heart dies from two of my new die sets as well as some vellum, paper and tulle. 

Let's get started...

For the base of my banner elements I knew I wanted to incorporate vellum. So, I grabbed the large heart die from my Folded Gift Bag Die Set (it's detachable and can be used to create a window bag) and the single heart from my Folded Airplane Die Set. I cut several of the large heart from vellum as well as some of the single heart from pink cardstock and white cardstock.

I colored the white ones with Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. Over top I stamped the coordinating stitching outline stamp from Love Ya in Candied Apple. I wanted these to have a little detail but not take away from the design of vellum hearts.

On my vellum hearts I stapled some pink tulle to the center. I bunched up the tulle a little bit to add some dimension. On the pink hearts I stamped "love ya" from the same stamp and popped it on top of the vellum with some foam tape. I strung all the hearts onto a banner and stapled the edges in an "x" shape.

I love the dimension of this banner and the different details I was able to incorporate. Now I just have to decide where to hang it...

Flat Vellum + Paper Valentines Treat Bags

Welcome to day #9 of Valentines week! Can you believe I've been posting for nine days?! Anyways...for today's idea I wanted to show another use for the Folded Gift Bag Die Set. I used the set to create flat, glassine-like bags from vellum and paper. I so thrilled with how they turned out! They're the perfect size for a few candies or for slipping in a gift card to the recipients favorite place. 

Let's get started...

I started with the vellum bag because I wanted to see if I could really create a glassine-like bag with this die set. I cut only one of the front of the bag with the bottom, rectangular piece and one of just the front without the rectangular piece. For the top I decided to use the paper bag edge included in the set. To glue them together I used some score tape on either side and on the bottom rectangular flap and placed them on top on one another. And that was it! They come together pretty quickly once you have the pieces die-cut. You will have to trim the bag a little bit on the sides as one of them is a score line.

Inside the bag I put some red, pink and white crinkle and tied it shut with some red twine. I also strung on a tag I made using the heart from the Folded Airplane Die Set and stamping the coordinating elements from Love Ya on top. I used Candied Apple for my stamping to match the twine.

For my second bag I used some light pink cardstock and the scalloped edge. Again, I die-cut it twice, once with the bottom flap and once without, trimming of any excess. On this bag I stamped the heart from Love Ya repeatedly with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.

For the tag I die-cut the little banner one from the Folded Airplane Die Set as well as the "soar" die-cut. I inked the tag lightly with Worn Lipstick and the "soar" with Candied Apple. On the tag I also stamped "you make my heart" and glued the "soar" just below it. The "s" slightly overlapped the hole of the tag so I just used a hole punch to make a new one. I also added some shimmer to the die-cut with my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pens. I stuffed some tulle inside the bag and closed it with a pink clothespin.

And those are my sweet bags! Aren't they adorable? When I was designing this die set I had originally wanted to make it so the bags would could out flat but changed my mind. I thought having a folded bag would be more useful. I am beyond excited that I figured out a way to use the set for both styles. 

What do you think of today's project? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy (Heart) Day Ticket Valentines

If you're anything like me you probably usually don't like receiving tickets. Often times they cost us money and frustration, but I think I may have an exception to that rule today. Check out these adorable Valentine's Day tickets I created! They're so sweet and simple and the perfect way to say "Happy (Heart) Day!" to your bestie. Whether you charge them a bestie fee is up to you! 

Let's get started...

Happy (Heart) Day Ticket Valentines // rightathomeshop.com/blog

I wanted these tickets to be pretty small but still have enough space for some stamping and a message. I decided on 1 5/8 in wide by 3 9/16 in long. I trimmed three different candy colored cardstocks to that size and got decorating!

To create the ticket-like edge on each rectangle I used the paper bag edge die from my Folded Gift Bag Die Set. I lined it up even on each side, taped it down with some washi tape and ran it through my die-cutting machine.

Next I pulled out the OG stamp in the Right at Home line, Happy Mail, and stamped the circle seal image off to the left. I changed up the ink color depending on the cardstock ticket color. Inside the seal I added three die-cut hearts from my Folded Airplane Die Set. I think that little heart cluster die is going to be a fave.

Next to the seal I stamped "Happy (Heart) Day!" from my Love Ya stamp set as well as "to:" and "love:". To add some dimension to the ticket I used my ink blending sponges with a coordinating ink and ran it along the edges. Love! Oh, and to the little heart die-cuts I used my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pens. They are just so glittery!

Once I got my design down these took minutes each to create. I just had a thought while writing this...wouldn't these be so sweet to give to your friends as admittance to a Galentine's Day party?! I'm totally doing this. Or you could write "redeem for a coffee date" or something cute and give to a co-worker? So many adorable uses.

Let me know how you would use these tickets in the comments below! 

I (heart) you!
