Pinterest Inspiration with Epiphany Crafts

Hi everyone and happy Friday! Waving a giant hello to you all from Myrtle Beach!

This week is Pinterest Inspiration week on the Epiphany Crafts blog. I made a sweet lovey frame that I hope will add a little festive cheer to my front entryway table for Valentine’s Day.

Now I don’t know about you all, but Pinterest is a constant source of inspiration for me. I could spend hours each day pouring over all of the amazing projects and photos there. For my project, I was inspired by this gorgeous frame.

I was really drawn to the graphic design and repetition of all the hearts, and that was the springboard for my frame. But as you can see, I went a bit more crazy with the pattern.  First I made a quilted background grid by piecing 1″ squares of chevron print paper in alternating directions and then machine stitching every piece in place. Then using the Epiphany Crafts Heart 25 Shape Studio Tool as a punch, I created a paper heart for each square, save one. Machine stitched down each column of hearts and then gently lifted the sides to create a bit of dimension.

The last square got a custom embellishment made from Crate Papers adorable Fourteen collection and an Epiphany Crafts Square 25 Shape Studio Tool. I added a custom button and bow and a few more layers, and matted the whole onto recycled corrugated cardboard.

Well, I’m off now to get back to my scrapping here at the beach retreat, or at least (eh hem)……….pretending to be scrapping at the beach while I’m busy snacking and chatting. :) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, too! Thanks so much for stopping by!
