Valentine Frames

What would the 1st of February be without hearts?

I was on an IKEA run a few weeks ago when I saw these frames. Not knowing what I was going to do with them yet I bought 2 white & 2 black frames. Of course within a few days I figured it out. I had seen this frame on Ali Edwards' blog awhile ago, knowing I wanted to make one. It's perfect for all the scraps of pretty papers I can't bear to toss or are too small for cards.


I used the larger Swiss Dots embossing folder (sorry no link). I think it comes a close second to the original swiss dots folder. It's a larger size 5x7 I think & the dots are bit bigger as well. LOVE!! The hearts were punched with my Martha Stewart Heart punch & I just pulled out random scraps of papers that looked good together.

The Pink one...

The Red one....
Of course now that I used these I wish I had bought more frames. But that just means another IKEA run!!

Love these! So cute! I'm adding this to my list of things to make. Too bad the closest Ikea is in Chicago!
