Valentine inspiration by Henriëtte

Hi, my name is Henriëtte van Mierlo, I'm 49 years. I live in The Netherlands with 
my husband Robert and my 17 year old daughter Emma.
 I work parttime in financial administration and in my sparetime I love to craft, 
especially card making.
I’ve been making cards for many years, tried different styles but nowadays they are 
more shabby chic/vintage.
Besides card making I also like mixed media projects, flower making (foamiran, fabrics, paper), 
DIY projects, working with polymer clay and altering art.
When I'm not crafting I love reading books and I try to go to the gym twice a week.
Well, never a dull moment and often not enough hours in the day.

Here are the links to my blog, facebook, pinterest, instragram and you tube channel.

I'm very excited to be on the Blue fern Studios design team and looking forward to share my creativity with you.

The first project I like to share is in style with today's occasion Valentine's day. 💘

I altered this heart shaped box using the beautiful Heartland papers.

First I cut all the paper pieces and glue them on, covering the box with the papers.

Then I decorated the box and lid with red ribbon, lace trim, BFS flowers and chipboard pieces.
I embossed the "love letters" chipboard with BFS "oatmeal" embossing powder. 

The chipboard heart and envelope are colored with inks.

Patterned Paper:

I hope you like my first project. Thanks for stopping by!
