Valentine Tutorial Finally Up!

Good Early Morning Everybody!

I almost made it on the same day as promised...The Third Time I Promised It!  LOL!...The 14 Things I Love About You Tutorial is up on my Etsy Store if you have any interest.

Here's a link:

The Gentleman Crafter's Etsy Store

You will need a heart box to make this project.  You can fine one from Scrapadabadoo.com..Here.

The 14 Things I Love About You Heart Box was originally the heart box I did last year for Graphic 45 and called the 10 Things I Love About You Heart Box.  I've been trying to go back to my favorite projects and the most requested projects and do tutorials on them.  Does that make sense or is it just time to go to bed?  Hahaha!  This year I added four more accordion pockets and instead of doing 10 tags to fill the pockets, I made 14 tickets.  "Love Tickets"...  Basically, 14 tickets that the receiver can cash in for things like, Dinner and a Movie...A Foot Massage....A promise to put the toilet bowl lid down for a whole month....You know those kinds of romantic things!

Anyway, here are a few pictures of The 14 Things I love about You Heart Box..









The heart is done.   I never got around to making the other 3-D heart piece that I was so hoping to get to this weekend, but will start that day after tomorrow.  I think I will do a YouTube video tutorial on it.  First though, I need to finish making some more Valentine cards.  I've got a few ideas that keep rolling around in my head that I need to make happen before I go nuts!

Well, until tomorrow then my friends!  I'm hitting the hay!  Have an awesome night or....morning!
