You’ve Been Heart Attacked!

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!
