Loving the home decor ideas

Lately I have been really into making home decor items, and it just so happens that over on the Heart 2 Heart Blog they are asking for posts of your home decor ideas.  I made this LOVE picture frame for Valentine's Day.


I found a picture frame at our local Goodwill store (I swear that I had one like this at one point, maybe I just bought back my own frame) and knew that I needed to make it into a LOVE frame.  I used the "For Always" paper pack X7165B $9.95 from the new Spring Idea book for the paper.  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut out the letters using Ruby Cardstock.  Then I stamped them with the swirl design from "Love Life" set.  I added some Lagoon cardstock behind the letters so it shows through the cut-out circles.  I mounted it under the glass, then on top of the glass I added grey sparkles on the cut out circles and three Ruby colored roses, Black swirls and the two love birds out of Lagoon paper all cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I added some black pearls to the center of the roses and the birds eyes and some black tulle ribbon to hang it ontop of the mirror that I have over our fireplace.  I'm really pleased with how it came out!  It is so fun to decorate the house with homemade items.
