As some of you know, I am lucky enough to design the QuicKutz Club projects for Pages From the Heart - which is an awesome deal! Lifestyle Crafts/QuicKutz sends me their new release and I figure out a fun project for Kathy's club members - it's pretty fun!
For Valentine's Day, QuicKutz released their Sweetheart Line - which was super cute! My favorite part was the nesting hearts - but take a look at these super cute dies!
Aren't those cute? I love them! I think I'll use the donut's for my sister-in-laws bridal shower card - they're doing donuts in place of a wedding cake!
Kathy was giving her club this die as their Club Die...
It's a Heart Doily die - so pretty! You might be thinking that a heart in February is a pretty easy product to work with... except that the club was AFTER Valentine's Day. Ugghhhh. I didn't want to make a Valentine's project that no one would be able to use for a year! So, I grabbed my hearts and thought, "Hmmm, what else can I made with hearts?". And then I made this!
A Shamrock! Perfect for our next Holiday, St. Patrick's Day! I used this die...
Which is a Nesting Heart Die - you get 5 nesting hearts in this package! And I used the largest and 2nd largest dies to create my shamrock petals along with the doily heart.
I also used the QK Nesting Circles to cut out 3 rolled roses for the shamrock center, used a manila tag and some fake cream flowers. I gathers shimmery tulle and placed that behind the flowers/tag/ribbon.
So cute, huh?!
For the stem I used a kabob skewer and covered it with paper. I glued the stick onto the back of the shamrock and covered it with a circle glued on top of the stick for support.
That's it! I'm feeling pretty lucky, how about you?
