craft: valentine craft roundup

We recently had the girls back together to share some Pinterest inspiration and get Valentine's Day off to a good start (see here, here, here and here). The inspiration was spilling into other homes and I asked some friends to share their creativity.
KR is my buddy in Idaho and this hip mom creates some pretty amazing things that I anticipate sharing with you on IHB in the future (hint hint KR!). Below is a picture of the adorable heart garland that she created. Here's what Katie has to say:
I just purchased a package of 6 inch paper heart doilies and a 6"x6" pad of Valentine scrapbook paper.  I used one of the paper doilies, folded vertically, as my heart template.  I folded all of the scrapbook paper vertically and cut out the hearts the good ol' fashion way.  I laid them out in an order that was cute and decided that the paper doilies needed a little pizzazz, so i cut small hearts out of the scraps and glued them on.  The paper doilies were really thin so I just kept 3-4 of them together as one.  I used the "vine" stitch on my new sewing machine and made the banner.


Bringing you back to California, IHB contributor Cece created the cutest framed art! I have a soft spot for this map since it highlights the city where I met this amazing friend, but also where she met her sweet BF! So easy to create with any map, a series of maps or leftover guides!


Cece is also my go-to for advice on creating my next cavity sweet treat! So much so that I needed her to register for my baking goods.  This amazing dessert is a great healthy ice cream creation. She found inspiration here and here

Moving North to the great state of Oregon, we also bring back the talented IHB contributor, Kimie! She strung up an impromptu Valentine's day banner for the kitchen, so simple and inspiring for anyone to add this holiday!
 
happy crafting.

  1. I love the heart garland, it's so cute! You could do something similar with so many different holidays too... I just need to get a sewing machine and learn how to do that vine stitch! ;)
