  11. i love how you did the circles with the heart. i really need to get some of those pop dots. normally i use kids foam ran through the xyron twice but those ones you use seem so handy.

  15. Hi again,
    I love this card, and I love the idea of the small circles behind the heart. I also have the paper pups cart and did not know it had a heart. I have now made 2 cards, and having a ball! yay me!! I also used my cricut to get the small circles as I don't have that size punch. Worked like a charm. Lisa G l_gobea@yahoo.com

  26. Another great video Christina ... I love the look of the scallops part-way around the heart ... I've seen this technique of using the small circles to make a scalloped looking edge before, but never think to use it ... thanx for the refresher chourse and reminder of how easy this is.

  32. I really enjoyed making this project ... I didn't have a circle punch but I do have a flower punch that works just as well for the scallops around the heart. You can view my card on photobucket here's the link ... http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e223/tallfry/handmadecards096.jpg

    Well, I've been here all day watching all the projects get posted, reading all the comments and enjoying all the great work everyone is doing ... today has been wonderful!

  43. Here it is. I scraplifted this one almost exactly. I simply love it & know my grandmother will too. Thanks so much for the video; I never would have made a scalloped edge from circles if I hadn't seen you do it.

  53. OOPS!

    I printed off the sketch and apparently the words card sketch was left off by my printer. So I made a scrapbook page instead. It can be seen ( I hope) on page 22 under the National scrapbook day thread that Robyn started. Let me know what you think.

  54. I used this sketch and made another mom day card. Instead of a heart I did a large butterfly from home accents cricut cart. I didn't do a scallop border paper, I just did two sizes of strips of coord. paper. I finished with three small flowers and a printed Happy Mommy Day at the bottom. Thanks for the inspiration
