TaDa Creative Studios Project
Valentine's day is quickly approaching so I created this quick little project featuring TaDa Creative Studios papers for V-day. The tube is from SRM Stickers that I filled with valentine candy hearts, the heart card is from the Pocket Notes from the Festivus collection. Just punch a hole at the top so you can attach the ribbon, or in this case Baker's twine which I wrapped around the tube several times. I also wrapped a strip of paper around the top and bottom of the tube. I made sure I placed the top on the tube and pressed it closed before wrapping the piece around the top.

Closeup of top of tube, I punched a circle to cover the top - paper is from the Festivus collection My Sweet Valentine paper.

Next Up a card Sketch

I found a great sketch for a card its Sketch 34 at the Deconstructed Sketch. I just loved all the layers on this sketch. I pulled out this super old tag (the green one) which is from K&Co and that developed the color palette for the whole card. On the brown paper I pulled out the cuttlebug and an embossing folder to add some texture and pattern to the cardstock. Add some patterned paper scraps and the sentiment is a Rubon from Dream Street Papers.
