Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Today I gave my husband a heart attack and I did it in the most sincere and loving way: WITH CHOCOLATE!!  Recently, I’d seen this pin and blog post on Pinterest about a “Heart Attack” made up of a jar full of chocolates and loved the idea for Valentine’s Day.blog-Heart AttackedI started the project by using my Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut about 50 heart shapes in red, pink and white cardstock in a few different sizes.  I stamped some of them with Tulip [retired], Cotton Candy and White Daisy CTMH ink and images from my Whooo’s Your Valentine stamp set.  Then I grabbed a white Uniball pen and some Copic Spica AtYou glitter pens and wrote on the hearts with ideas from my head and inspired ideas from the free printables from Skip to My Lou (see link at the beginning of my post).

I attached the hearts to chocolate heart candies using Glue Dots, which held them on there very nicely.blog-Heart Attack CandyNext, I took a clean Mason jar and jazzed it up with the free “You’ve Been Heart Attacked” printable, some ribbon from American Crafts, my pink and white polka dot washi tape, pink and white baker’s twine, pink cardstock, and a gorgeous sequin heart.blog-Heart Attack JarI adore these little disco sequin hearts from Heidi Swapp‘s line. I popped one on the top of the jar with some double-sided foam tape.blog-Heart Attack LidThen, I took some photos in the lightbox my Valentine made for me, and filled the jar!blog-Heart Attack Jar and Treats Here is a peek inside the jar, from the back.blog-Heart Attack Jar

 Tomorrow, I’ll post pictures of the Valentine cards I made for him.  Have a great day!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
