Paper Crafts and Another Kissing Ball!

I will have to admit I do not think I am very good at paper crafting. What appears to me as something that should take 5 minutes...ends up turning into 30 minutes. I think eventually I get it right for the most part but it sure takes a lot of work. Impatient? Yes. Perfectionist? Slightly. I think I am understanding why my passion for scrapbooking has died down...paper crafting is not my expertise and seeing how quickly I can do other crafty things just makes the whole paper thing not worth it. The whole sticker and tape thing...I am going to change my mind at least 70 times...and eventually that paper rips after peeling off tiny stickers... Some of you really have a knack for these things...not me. For this, I am jealous. I will stick to what I know...spray paint! ;)
Anyways, I saw so many of these fun paper covered hearts in bloggy land that I thought I would make a few attempts. The big heart was purchased at the Dollar Tree for a chalk board but then I found a heart I liked better...and the smaller heart is the backing to the I Love You frame in my previous post (from Dollar Tree) that I took out of the heart frame. I was proud of using up some recycled resources! :)
After much agonizing...I think they turned out not so bad. ;) The little one will make a sweet addition to my vday tree. I was very pleased to see how giddy so many of you were about my ginormous huge dinosaur of a thing kissing I decided to make a slightly smaller, more proportioned one. I think it is perfect and will be hanging in a doorway for some potential vday kisses. xoxo ;)
I got a screaming deal on the roses...because well, roses are EXPENSIVE...especially when you have to use a thousand of them for this craft. So I thought I would make an extra one for one of you! So this screaming deal on the roses are getting you, my friends, a screaming deal on a kissy head over to my Etsy shop if you would like to purchase little miss gorgeous!

  1. This is beautiful!! And I LOVE my hearts! I got them in the mail a couple days ago!!

  2. I wish I had an ounce of your crafty abilities. Can I just stare at you? That won't be too distracting will it?

  3. Very cute hearts. Don't you just love the $$ Tree. Sometimes I go there for my 30 minute lunch to just walk around and clear my head of work for a minute.

    Everything looks so cute.
    Have a good day.

  4. I think you can do paper crafts just fine! I love that new kissing ball. :) However, you definitely are the spray paint Queen in my book. :)

  5. You are so creative! I love the kissing balls!

  6. I am totally with you on the paper crafting. It takes way to long and I make way too many mistakes to enjoy it! Hence the dawn of the digi-crafter.

    I LOVE the kissing balls! They are so cute!!

  7. I sometimes feel like it takes me hours to create something paper crafty. I'm always always second guessing what I've done.
    It's ridiculous. So, I'm hosting/teaching a scrapbooking event at our church on Sunday night. I've been pulling things together for it and realize that I need to make some new layouts since it's been over a year since I have. Sheesh! I guess I can finally start to scrap our wedding photos...over a year later.

    So so so love the kissing balls!!

  8. Thanks for the super sweet comment! Love your creations...just beautiful The rose ball is so pretty :O)

  9. I think your hearts and your kissing balls are great!
