Paper Garden Romantic Garden Walk

Welcome to the Paper Garden Projects Romantic Garden Walk!!
(Do my cute little Hedgehogs count as romantic? They're adorable, anyway!!)

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and take a stroll through the blogs of all the Paper Gardeners for some "heart-felt" inspiration.

As you visit, subscribe to each Gardener's blog, if you haven't already, and take note of each designer's name and their "Romantic Word" . Once you finish your garden tour, send an E-mail to custserv@papergardenprojects.com with the list of designers and their Romantic Word.

Everyone who sends the correct list of designers and words will be entered in a random drawing to win a sweet Valentine prize!! You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don't leave your list as a comment. You have until midnight (EST) on January 26 to sent your list.

And the prize? The super cute Penny Black clear stamp set called Every Which Way... which just happens to be the set I got to play with for today's Garden Walk!!! :-)


For my project today, I decided to alter a little empty notecard box that I found in my stash using some of the papers and doo-dads from the Valentine's Paper Kit that Cathy just put up in the store. I love this kit!! I've made a ton of cards with it, in addition to this project. In fact I think I've almost used it up... and that's a lot of paper!!!



Here's the box with the coordinating set of little 3x3 love notes. I used the little hedgies with hearts and followed the same basic layout for each of them. They are colored with Copics and were very quick and easy. One little design note... I added some *texture* to each hedgies balloon with a white gel pen. One has dots, another stripes, and another hearts. It's a quick way to make something looked paper pieced, without all that cutting and pasting. :-)

Here's another picture of the box from the side. That yummy ribbon is part of the paper kit, too!
Oh, I almost forgot!! My romantic word is heart. Now off you go! Don't forget to gather your words and designer names for a chance to win this adorable set!! And don't forget to come back next Friday for our monthly Paper Garden Challenge!

Here's your list:

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Blessings,

Tricia
