Cross My Heart card and **Giveaway**

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope you get to spend time today with those you love.

My husband is cooking lunch for me!  Aren't I a lucky girl?  When he retired the first time around, he cooked often.  When he retired the 2nd time, he started spending more and more time on Pinball machines and never resumed cooking.  I'm really looking forward to today's treat.

Two other things on today's post... First, today's card uses Stampin' Up!'s Paper Piercing Pack from the main catalog as a basis for this stitched heart.  Here's the short video that shows how to create the heart:

Also, I have a GIVEAWAY!  Later this month I'll celebrate a blog anniversary so I wanted to give a package of goodies to one lucky winner.  The prize consists of 1 pack (12 sheets) of designer paper from Stampin' Up!, 1 My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad, 3 packages of trim from SU! including my favorite pom pom fringe, 2 Prima stamp sets, some Washi, stickers, rub-ons, brads and Basic Grey chipboard letters.  Lots of goodies.

Here is how to enter:

1)  Leave a comment below and tell me one thing you like or one thing you would like to see improved here on the blog.  I'm truly looking for feedback so any constructive criticism is appreciated.

2) Watch the YouTube video that goes with this post (shown below) and comment on YouTube.  The video will tell you what to comment on.


3) Become a Twitter follower.  I've just started using Twitter and it seems that it works best if you follow lots of people and lots of people follow you.  The link to my Twitter account is on the right side of the screen.

Watch at YouTube

You can do one, two or all three for up to 3 chances to win the prize pack.  Giveaway ends next Wednesday, Feb 20 at midnight.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving feedback.  It means so much to read all your comments.  I truly do want to make sure everyone who visits gets something from my blog so I look forward to your feedback.

Happy Heart day to all!


  1. Love that stitched heart! How wonderful to have a husband who cooks. Mine is a willing sous chef, so I'll be content with that. Already following you on Twitter, fun giveaway you've got going!

  2. Critically... I LOVE your vids. You are informative and speed up the process when needed (I can't do that on my vids yet) You keep it interesting and entertaining... even when deciding on papers or embellishments!!!! I love your vids.. love your blog but look forward to the vids the most :) Watched the second vid and am a loyal follower already! Kathi

  3. I hope you had a yummy lunch. I love when my DH cooks, even if it's just to give me a break. :) Love this pretty card and very creative stitching!

  4. Hope you enjoyed lunch!
    I do most of our meals, but love when my husband grills :)

    That heart is amazing!!

  5. Ohhh I love when hubby cooks :)
    Your card is so fun with that stitched heart.
    Good luck with your giveaway...I think your blog is great..honestly can't think of anyway to improve it.

  6. I am a follower of your YT channel and from there found your blog, which I now follow too. I love cardmaking and enjoy the tutorial videos most. By the way, I used to be a "Lisa E." too, before I got married! :)

  7. I came on here and found you doing a video using the heart from the Paper Piercing pack. I have that one and have never opened it. Now I'm going to have to get it out and go to work using it.

  8. That heart card is just gorgeous! Thanks for the videos!!

  10. I really like the melted crayon technique but have been a little afraid to try it. I follow your blog and you tube and just wait for another post from you. I am not a good critiquer and especially here because I like what you are doing. Awesome giveaway!

  11. Lisa, I love your videos! What do I love about them? First, I love the intro music by Kevin MacLeod; in fact, I love it so much that I plan to use it for my own upcoming blog! (Thanks for not minding.) I also love your titling and occasional on-screen comments. You always mention it if you have a pdf sketch in the blog, and otherwise give good directions to your followers. I love that you're always trying to "teach" us something. Some blogs just show the same type of material over and over again. (Oh, my, I hope I don't become one of those.) For constructive feedback (and there isn't much): You mentioned that you want to get your videos below 10 minutes; I think that's a noble endeavor. Even when I'm personally vested, I still run into time crunches. Honestly, I don't know how you're going to do it without losing quality of information, but if anyone can come up with a way, I'm sure you can. That's it! Happy blogaversary!

  12. Wow, your videos are awesome! Don't think they need improving on. You always have helpful little tips. Keep up the great work and thank you!

  13. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Cheers
