You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make 3D projects to give as gifts. (Did you see the other framed projects I made for Christmas?) Today’s projects are quick & easy using the Large Letters Framelits and a 4 x 6 picture frame.

My first project makes a great Valentine or anniversary gift for the love of your life. Who will you give the “key to your heart”?

I started with a piece of 4 x 6 All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The beautiful heart is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies which is part of the All My Love Suite in the new Occasions catalog.  I cut the heart and die from thick Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to the DSP.  I made a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick Ribbon and adhered it on top with a glue dot.  The finishing touch was adding the key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

After 33 years I’m giving this “key to my heart” to my husband!

I couldn’t wait to make my next project as soon as I saw the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper! My beautiful niece got married last summer and the dress she wore for her engagement photo matched the fresh fig floral vellum design.

I used another heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and this one cuts out the heart in the center as well as the scalloped frame. I cut the photo and a piece of Fresh fig cardstock and adhered the photo inside the framed piece.

The soft elegant designs in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and more. It is so easy to hand cut the vellum to use for accents like I did on the corner of my frame. Here’s a look at the other designs.  (It’s one of my favorite paper packs in the Occasions catalog!)
