Happy Valentine's Day Heart Tussie Mussie Tutorial and Finished Photos

Hello Friends!
Over at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog
the current challenge is ...New Year's Inspirations.
Those who have been following me for a while, know that I took the last two years off from crafting because I became an Assistant Scout Master for my two son's Boy Scout Troop.

Recently...I started playing digitally again...I just LOVE it...creating new sheets...and then coming up with a project using them.  I find myself staying up till 3am creating...lol.  

I am still doing all the ASM stuff...but I have decided to make sure I have time to create...because it is fun..and stress relieving.
So...I have a few goals for the new year...and the one I am sharing today...is to create items using my collage sheets.  I have been bad about just designing a sheet...and not actually making much from it...lol.  I am also doing more how to videos...as you will see below.
(I have a few other crafty goals that I will share later this month)

Today I am sharing a Heart Shaped Valentine's Day Cone or Tussie Mussie that you can create and fill with goodies for your loved ones this Valentine's Day.

It is just easier to take a photo while the tussie mussie is flat...lol

Close ups
Cotton Candy Baker's Twines was used to tie sweet little knots in my buttons.  Pink Organza is what I used to hang my cone with.  You can find them both at Really Reasonable Ribobn.
Yay!!  I just found my Bow it all Tool...so I decided to make some pink organza bows to go on my cone.  I made them and glued them on with designer dries clear glue.  I am using clothes pins to hold them in place till they are dry.
Here is the cone finished.

Heart Shaped Valentine's Day Cone Tussie Mussie

Hello Friends!
Today I am sharing a Heart Shaped Valentine's Day Cone or Tussie Mussie that you can create and fill with goodies for your loved ones this Valentine's Day.

It is just easier to take a photo while the tussie mussie is flat...lol

I decided to go ahead and embellish the very back of my Cone with another heart and the Happy Valentine's Day Sentiment that comes on the Focal Cherub sheet.  
I also used Fauna glitter on my cream hearts and Cherub wings.  I used Water Color glitter on the greenish hearts, Lion's mane on the pink heart cone (this was an accident...was going to use just peachy...but I loved how it turned out...it was only on a small part...but chose to do it all that color).  Garnet glitter was used on the banner piece.  All my glitters came from Art Glitter...as well as the designer dries clear glue.

I will have both the tutorial of how to create the cone and how to create the bows in my blog post tomorrow.  As well as a photo of it glued together and hanging :0)

Valentine's Day Bingo Cards

Hello Friends!
Today I am sharing a set of Vintagey Valentine's Day Bingo Cards that I made for the actual game and sell in my Etsy shop here.  There are 28 different cards.  I used the same images in the past for cards, tags etc.  28 Vintage Valentine's Day Bingo Game Playing Cards (actual cards numbered different so you can actually play game) Collage Sheet Printable

I thought I would go in and resize them and change them up a little bit.   I decided to add the images above the numbers.  I have created a set of ATC size Bingo Valentine's Day Focals that you can find in my Etsy shop here.
Here is the card that I made yesterday.  You can find the tutorial that I uploaded later in the day below.
Thank you for visiting!!
Hugs!!
