Sweetheart Board

I saw this idea for the board on Pinterest, the gal did a really cute job!  You can see her's HERE.
This is my version of her design.

I'm loving this font lately.  It is called "I love what you do!!"
It's so fun for Valentine's projects.

For this project I used
2x10x24 board
White, Black and Red Paint
and vinyl as a stencil.

I was happy with it, but not super happy, I wish the font was a little thicker.  I'm thinking it has too much white too.  I had to call on my friend Chelon for help, she added a border and I think it makes all the difference in the world.  Now I love it.  Thanks gal!

Every Love Story is Beautiful Sign

 Pinterest is one of the best places for ideas, I just love browsing through all those pins finding different ideas for projects.  :)

The saying on this board has gone around in a few different ways.
Chatty Walls did this one for me.  It's so fun!  Thanks Chelon!!!
What I used for this project is
2x12x26" piece of pine.
I used Americana Napa Red paint
The vinyl is white.
I added little X's, O's, and a heart from Hobby Lobby,
and some red and white bakers twine.

The Lake Rules Sign

A friend asked me to make a sign for one of her family members for a Christmas Present.
She had a picture she had found on pinterest and wanted it similar to it.
I thought it turned out kinda fun.....now I want a darn lake house!  Hehe.

I used a white wood board that was 1x12x24.
The red I used is Delta Ceramcoat in Barn Red.
The vinyl was cut in Navy Blue.

A Couple Gifts for Girls

 A couple friends asked me to help make gifts for girls in their family.  I thought they turned out so fun and that they had some really good ideas that I wanted to share.  The first one was for a little girl and she added a whole bunch of great characteristics about this sweet gal.
I thought it was such a great idea and so personal.  I am hoping to make some for my 5 kids soon!  It was done on a 1x12x18 board.
The last gift was much simpler, but just as sweet.  It was done on a 2x4, sized to fit the child's name.  Such a fun idea for something to put up on a shelf or a bookcase.  Love it!  Thanks for letting me craft for you ladies!
