Valentine Prims

Here are a few Valentine-y prims that I've been working on. I love pink and what a great time to use up my pink fabric than for Valentines day. I love grungy prim but not on my pinks...makes them look too dull and my pinks need to be pink. I'll use the coffee/vanilla mixture on the reds though...but not my pinks...hehehe.

We will celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary this year on.....Valentine's Day -February 14th....WooHoo! Where does the time go? I feel so fortunate to have a wonderful husband who is kind, caring, generous, loving, helpful and oh, who brings prims home for me!....can't find a pic of he and I right now :(

I primmed up some tags with the coffee/vanilla mixture; stamped sweet words on some tags and used my key stamp on others. (I looove my new key stamp)!! I also aged the tags with sepia ink. Added grungy muslin tie with sweet annie. They smell so great!! I have a few bunches of dried sweet annie for sale here on my blog sidebar if anyone is interested.

I love this pink rose fabric....have had it for years and never used it!! :)

Here's a whole bowl full of beautiful reds N pinks !! Added  vintage buttons to these!

Here's a crystallized heart that I made using borax soap.
Love the sparkle on this chenille heart! This heart is actually quite heavy from the crystals....I really need to make more but ran out of borax that my friend Jolene gave to me....time to make a borax run this week...hehe...

Here's the tutorial link from Martha Stewart. The video tutorial is for snowflakes and is on the left hand side of the link. There are written directions as well. (just shape your chenille pipe cleaners into hearts for Valentine's Day, dip overnight and wake up to crystally, sparkly goodness. This is a great project for kids too).

Here's a Vintage Valentine's graphic:
