Valentine's blog hop

Welcome to the Practical Scrappers Blog Hop 
where we are Scrapping our Stash.
If you're participating in the Blog hop, you should have arrived from Majken Pullin's Blog
This month the Practical Scrappers Team are using up the old Valentine's day product we had almost forgotten we had! Be sure to visit the Practical Scrappers Blog to learn about our sponsor Kiwi Lane Designs and find out how you could win a prize.
I didn't even think I owned any older Valentine paper when I started out on this challenge. Turns out I have a substantial selection in addition to the new papers I bought this year.
What I also have a ton of are hearts! Felt, chipboard, wood, satin, glitter, pins, buttons etc. I mean I use hearts on my pages, but with 4 boys, I tend to grab more stars and circles before the hearts get used- especially the pink glittery ones!
Pp: Fancy Pants Design, Echo Park
Chipboard and felt hearts: American Crafts
Satin and plastic heart: Dollarama
Tag: American Crafts
Buttons: Doodlebug Design Inc.
Border strips: Doodlebug Design Inc, Bazzill Basics Paper
Stickers: Pink Paislee, October Afternoon

Then I grabbed the new papers I had from Crate Paper's collection Love Notes. To make another Valentines day layout. I decided to use up some more of the hearts, some brads , and Jillibean Soup Die cuts (Arrows) that I made with my Silhouette.

I love how the chalkboard papers work with my blurry black and white photo. I loved this picture and just had to find a way to make it work.  

Pp: Crate Paper, BBP
Chipboard Hearts: Scrapworks
Satin and felt heart: Dollarama
Brads: Simple Stories
Stamps: Prima Marketing
Die Cuts: Jillibean Soup- Silhouette

In honor of Valentine's Day, and our Scrap your Stash Blog Hop, I'm going to give away a selection of heart embellishments from my stash for fun. Just leave me a comment to qualify for the random draw.
Next you should be headed to see what Lisa Peeples has done with her love themed goodies...

This is a big list of blogs, with many offering prizes of their own, so visit as many as you can.
