Obsessed with Hearts

For the past few days I have been working with a variety of hearts to create some new projects.  I thought I'd show you some of them so you can see that inspiration is everywhere.

While putting away Christmas ornaments (yes, I know that it is February but we were away for a good part of January!) I came across this crystal heart and decided to take some photos that I could use to create digital elements.

After lots of experimentation with a photo taken from another angle I made this heart image.  I can change the color of the heart to suit the project I am doing.

This heart was made by one of my walking friends who gave it to me several years ago.  I am inspired to pull out some of my pretty bits and pieces and make some similar hearts.  While I have been unpacking I have found so many beads, buttons and bits of lace - doesn't this look like a fun way to use them?

While we were in California, we went on a hike with our family and I noticed this lopsided heart stone - you never know where you might see something interesting.  I wonder how it got to be that shape?

I have also been making some things to print and cut with Design Space.  These will be pocket scrapping 3 x 4 cards.  I haven't printed them yet because I have a few more to finish.  Do you recognize the heart shape that I used for the card I posted yesterday?  There are lots of ways you can use the altered image after you hide some of the cutting lines.  Here I flattened it onto a basic rectangle shape for printing.

I also made these hearts using a different software program and uploaded them to Design Space to print and cut them for cards.  It's fun to be able to make custom images - I could change the text on these to include the names of my Valentines.

Just a quick post tonight - I hope you are having a great week!
