Conversation Hearts...

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It has been a nice relaxing one for us. I did a little, well actually a lot, of crafting. Today is my design team day at SVG Attic and I am in love with this project. It started out as a much smaller project and before I knew it there were 41 different elements cut out and assembled! So I won't make you wait any longer (be prepared for picture overload):

Well?!? This turned out better than I expected. The basket and little heart boxes inside are from the Heart Shaped Box collection, the roses are from the Be Mine collection, and the butterflies are from the new Valentine Elements collection. Each of the strip weaved in the basket and the handle are stamped with background stamps. The light pink strips and the handle are stamped with a SP and Company and the dark pink strips use a stamp from October Afternoon. Here's a look at a few of the heart boxes, any guesses of how many there are?
Here's a little close up of the roses and butterflies, there are 3 of each on both sides of the handle. Both are spritzed with glimmer mist (my new found obsession...).
There are 4 colors of heart boxes inside and each of them is stamped with conversation hearts from My Thoughts Exactly's Candy Heart Stamps. In case you are wondering each of the hearts has a different message on it, none of them are the same! All the little boxes are tied shut with Valentine Trendy Twine.
Here are all the kraft heart boxes.
All the pink ones.
All the read ones.
And all the white ones.
Ok did you keep count? Well there are 28 in all!
Have you asked what's in all those little heart boxes yet? I promise they are not empty, any idea how little they are? Well here is the answer to all of those questions...
Each heart box has a little dove chocolate heart in it. As you can figure out everything is pretty tiny for this project. The basket is approximately 6" x 6", the roses are about an inch in diameter, the butterflies are also about an inch, and the candy heart boxes are just under 2" big. I could never have imagined cutting anything this small before my Zing arrived!

Well I hope you enjoyed today's project. Be sure to stop by SVG Attic and pick up all your favorite files. Oh yea there just might be a 50% sale going on right now through Valentine's Day!

Happy crafting!
