11 Things You Can Do With A.....Heart Punch!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means? Time for another installment of Ten Things- well Eleven Things, but who couldn't use a little extra love! Today, we have some "heart-stopping" projects from our "lovely" designers who are filled with "loving" inspiration using their heart punches (are you catching the love theme?).  And, if you check back on Sunday when we feature some more great projects from Gina's Designs and SRM Stickers, I'll even share another bonus one with you! Remember, just because "heart day" is around the corner-- doesn't mean that all it can me used for! Love is always in the air!

1.) The negative is just as lovely as the positive!
Practical Scrapper Charity used the negative of a heart punch to make a four-leaf clover on this Valentine card.

2.)Love is full of many different layers!
Practical Scrapper Charissa used three different sized heart punches to create layered heart embellishments for her layout.

3.) Love can be masked!
Practical Scrapper Lee-Anne made a heart stencil with her Silhouette Cameo and inked and misted the background to create this layout of her daughter's puppy.  She also used some of the hearts and stamped on them.

4.) Even stripped done, love is still beautiful!
Practical Scrapper Linda used a strip of hearts on her 6"x12" layout - they are actually a negative of the tiny heart punch! 

5.) Love is always flowering!
Practical Scrapper Lanette used punched hearts to make her rose.

6.)Love is across all borders!
Practical Scrapper Leslii used punched hearts for several things on this adorable flower girl layout.  The border along the bottom of the page was made by sewing the hearts to the paper.  The flower was made from layered punched hearts, and the photo mat was given a ruffled look by layering numerous rows of punched hearts and finished off with more hearts in the corners.

7.) Who doesn't love a "love letter"!
Practical Scrapper Sarah used a heart punch to create letters to stand in for the Os in her Love You sentiment.  She added extra dimension by elevating the hearts with adhesive foam.

8.) Love is a rainbow of colors!
Practical Scrapper Karen punched mini hearts to create a rainbow inspired banner card.

9.) Cupid's Arrow strikes again!
Practical Scrapper Lisa used heart punches to create arrows for her layout about her boys.

10.)Shower them with love!
Practical Scrapper Kelly used a Fiskars small heart punch to make confetti for this card.  She created this card for her hubby using the new Carta Bella Devoted collection.
11.) Love is like a butterfly. It goes where it pleases!
To created her butterfly embellishment, Practical Scrapper Brenda used the MS "heartbeat" deep edge punch to punch 2 large hearts out of the pattern paper and a small heart from Kraft paper.   She then glued the two larger hearts together and popped the small Kraft heart on top, and added a burlap strand for the antennas.
