I started this last week but just put it together yesterday and I can feel the love! It looks so cute in the entryway.
It took a little while to make the heart but it wasn't difficult. I did it in Microsoft Word and just played around with the spacing so it would look like a heart. I used all different fonts and tried to space out the ones that were bolder. I started off with 20 for a font size because I had an 8x10 frame that I was planning on using. The heart by itself looked really lost and blah in the 8X10 though and since I couldn't get out to check out any scrapbook paper or embellishments - my 4 year old has been down with a stomach bug all week - I made do with what I had. I changed the font to 16 and went with the 5x7 frame and some cute Valentine Day fabric.
I can't take credit for this idea-wish I could, but I know I saw something like this on another blog. I'm pretty sure it was on one of the blogs that lets you link up your projects every week (love those link ups) - but I've tried to look for it and I can't find it anywhere. This is why I really need to put a notebook by my computer so I can jot ideas down. That or I really need to start marking my favorites more often. I always think oh I'll remember that.......yeah, right! I have no memory after 5 children. The project I saw had 3 small frames with I love you each in a different frame. The love part of the saying was a heart like I made-I'm not sure how it was made, I just saw the picture and thought it was cute. If this is your project or you know whose blog it is, please let me know so I can link up and give you/them credit.
Edited to add.....I found where I saw the heart to begin with.....it was at The Stories of A to Z. Beth has been having a mantel party on her blog every week and I saw the heart when she showed us her Valentine's Day Mantel. Her mantel parties are every Friday and another great place to get some wonderful, creative ideas. She did print her heart out and it's way cute! She just tweaked her mantel for the holiday and you can see it here. Glad I finally found it so I can give credit where credit is due. Thank you to all who share their creativity with all of us daily.
In honor of Valentine's Day and love and sharing (both of which my children are having trouble with this week!), if anyone is interested, I'd love to send this file to you. Right now, it's saved in the size 16 font but it's easy to change to make smaller or bigger. Send me your email address or leave a comment here and I'll send it out as soon as I can. If you do use it, I'd love for you to leave a comment with a link or send me a picture so I can see what you've done and we can share all the projects.
