We have some fun and festive Valentine’s Day home decor projects for you from Designer Mary Pat Siehl to share with you today that you are going to LOVE! Pun intended ;)

I love Valentine’s Day and I love to decorate my house to fit this holiday.  Core is really perfect for making all your home decor needs.  For my first project I made a message board.  In my kitchen I have an 8×10 photo frame and the glass functions as a dry erase board.  I love to leave messages to my kids and also make to do lists.  For my Valentine’s Day message board I started off with a base of the Core Gemstones in Opal.  I then cut out 3 hears in ruby red and pink diamond.  I then ran them through my Cuttlebug embossing folders just to give them an embossed look.  I then cut out the xo in onyx cardstock.

My next project is perfect for my mantel.  I found this frame on sale and thought it would be so fun to make my own journaling cards style photo frame.  I really got to have fun with my core for this project and really got to sand the cardstock.  I love the blackboard effect and made on box using the Core essentials Nightfall and sanded it to give the blackboard look. One of my favorite things about Core’dinations is that no matter what collection you use they all work together so well.  For this project I used papers from the Essentials, Tim Holtz Adirondack collection, and Glitter Silk!
