The Greetery {Have a Heart Collection}

Hello and welcome, friends! It's  great to be here today after quite a long break to help introduce the new 'Have a Heart' Collection from The Greetery! It's full of all things love and valentines; just perfect to get something made for all the people you care about! You can head over to The Greetery Blog for the official 'meet and greet' and don't forget to leave a comment here and on each of the designers' blogs for a chance to win one of TWO $50 gift certificates to The Greetery shop!

Valentine's Day is THE punn-y holiday, wouldn't you say? Betsy has come up with such a fun suite of products called 'Hearts at Home' with some sentiments and dies that work perfectly together to create those 'punn-y' valentines that are so much fun! 

At Christmastime, I bought these adorable lightbulb contains to fill with colorful m&ms for Christmas gifts for the cute kiddos at church. My two youngest boys each got one, so I had two left over and knew they would be absolutely PERFECT to use the 'Hearts at Home: Lightbulb' dies and the new 'Hearts at Home Sentiments' stamp set. You can find the plastic lightbulb containers HERE. I found this to be the best price for the quantity of containers and I needed quite a few for the Christmas gifts; I became a pro at filling lightbulbs with a funnel and a food scale to make sure every kid got the same amount! ha ha! Don't be fooled by their small appearance; each lightbulb holds a share size package of m&ms. 

Each lightbulb valentine also uses the new 'Hot Stuff' sentiment set. I chose the xoxo and the Be Mine sentiments for these two gifts. I die cut the lightbulbs from red and pink paper to switch things up. I chose silver glitter cardstock for the filament and the screw portion of the bulb. 

This photo shows you how cute the lightbulb containers are. The kids were super excited at Christmastime and wondered how I got candy into a lightbulb! ha ha! I layered all of the elements onto the smallest size of the Crimped Circle Tag using foam squares. The 'Hearts at Home sentiment set' has about 4 sentiments per die. There is a sweater and a hanger, a clock, a toaster, a set of his and her mugs, and the lightbulb and the coordinating sentiments are so much fun.

My next project for today uses the new Ribbon Maker: Scalloped Hearts die. I had so much fun making my Christmas Crackers, I thought it would be fun to  make some fun Valentine's Day treats using leftover crepe paper and the new hearts ribbon maker.

I actually made my own 'tubes' for this project since I hadn't been saving any paper towel rolls. The crepe paper collection that I bought for the crackers also included pink so I was excited to use it.

I used the new Tear Strip Tags: Valentine stamp set and the previously released Tear Strip Tags Die. This set is just like the Christmas version, just with Valentine's Day sentiments instead.....so cute!

I also added some fun ribbon to the ends and a tiny bouquet of flower using the Winter Medley Die. Each tube contains four Strawberries and Cream Lindt balls....yummy!

And last I'm sharing a card using the clock from the 'hearts at home' suite of products. isn't it just the cutest thing ever? I had so much fun putting it together!

This card also features the new Roundabout Hearts die and the new falling hearts background die. I absolutely love the background! The clock is really easy to assemble; the face of the clock has impressions where the die cut numbers go so you can easily place them. The hands have a hole in the end so you can put a brad in the middle, like I did here.

The 'Time to Be Mine' sentiment is from the Hearts at Home sentiment set and coordinates with the clock. I also added the xoxo sentiment from the new Hot Stuff sentiment set.

I hope you've enjoyed today's post! All of the new products will be in the shop tomorrow at 10 am ET. Thanks for fluttering by!

Kelly (you are here)
