Good morning everyone! Sorry my post is late today, just one of those days. Tomorrow I am starting a new job and today is the last day I have to get ready, ie, buy some work clothes, get my hair cut, organize the house, pack lunch and you know the routine. Needless to say I am still sitting in my robe at 9 am when there is far too much to get done.
I hope that you are having a great start to your week, and to my readers who live in the Eastern part of the US I hope that the snow stops falling and the sun starts shinning : )
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to create a quick and easy Valentine's Day card, so, here is my take on a pocket card that is very quick, super easy and fun to make.
Here is a picture of the finished heart:
And here is a picture of the heart with the tag showing:
What I liked about this heart pocket is that you can make the heart large enough to hold a gift card instead of the tag, you can use scissors to cut out the hearts (no special equipment needed) and the heart can be given alone or put on a card. I hope you like this new tutorial : ) Here are the directions (which will also be posted on PaperCraftPlanet.com later today) :

And of course we need to have a few links today, so check out these fun things:
Crafty Steals: Each day there is a new "special" for the day, today's special is a set of 8 decorative scissors for $5.99. I love a bargain and check this website often to see what goodie is on special for the day.
Ribbon Tying Videos: I somehow always have trouble tying ribbons, and loved these easy to follow videos! Save this link for the next time you are struggling to make the perfect bow : )
Another Distress Ink Coloring Tutorial: I really LOVE this style of coloring in images and found this tutorial very informative, step by step guide that is easy to understand. One thing I will note: While the tutorial author uses card stock, I find it much easier to color using water color paper.
New Tsukineko Products: Oh my! Staz On is now available in metallic colors! And check out the Sheer Shimmer Spritz as well.....My shopping list of new products is getting wayyyyy tooooooo lonnnnngg : )
Ok, time for me to get showered and on with my todo list for today. Don't forget that I absolutely LOVE to hear from you, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of today's post. And if you want me to research something or if you have a special tutorial you would like me to put together, please let me know.
Have a most wonderful week everyone, and thank you so much for all your support : )
