Lucky in Love with Suzanne

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! We hope you are having a wonderfully creative day. Today we are sharing two lovely Valentine's Day projects by Suzanne. Enjoy and happy creating!!!
Valentine's Day Mason Jar by Suzanne
Suzanne Sergi for MME
Supplies: Lucky in Love:sticker accessory sheet,Floral Stripes patterned paper,Roses Are Red patterned paper,Cupids Arrow patterned paper;All is Bright:twine;Lost and Found 3-Ruby:enamel dots,sticker accessory sheet;Misc:mason jar, diamond dust,doily,sewing machine

Suzanne says:Our children and our loved ones are usually the ones I shower with gifts on Valentine's Day.This year I plan on showing their teachers how much we appreciate them, too.

A simple and pretty gift idea is to dress up a glass mason jar. These are so pretty on their own. However, fancying them up  with the  Lucky in Love collection makes them the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.

I chose two of the papers to create a 3" border that I stitched along the bottom. Next I wrapped it around the jar on top of a white doily.I love creating tags, and I pulled in bits from the Ruby Lost & Found 3 Collection to create a bold tag to hang on the side of the jar.

Layering doily elements from the sticker accessory sheet, I created a pretty bloom.

I covered the heart sticker with diamond dust to add a bit of sparkle. The twine from All Is Bright works perfectly with this collection, too.Now, this jar can be filled with candy, a gift card or cookies that any teacher would love to receive!

Hot Air Balloon Card by Suzanne

 Suzanne says:When I saw the hot air balloon on the Lucky in Love sticker accessory sheet, I knew I HAD to use it on a card. But I wanted it to stand alone so that it could make a bold statement on the card.

Suzanne Sergi for MMEI decided to back the sticker with white cardstock so that I could add my personal message.

Next I simply created a 5" x 4" base from the Roses are Red patterned paper. I then punched a circle midway in the middle of  the card, so it would nestle underneath the hot air balloon sticker.

I wanted this card to be able to be read, and I also wanted to add a gift card inside. So, in the inside of the card, I created a pocket using vellum that I stitched along the sides and bottom.
Suzanne Sergi for MMEWhat is Valentine's Day without hearts? I punched small hearts and placed them inside of a vellum pocket. Next I embellished the balloon sticker with layers of vellum, cardstock, heart stickers, and a button.

A  few more details were then added to the bottom of the card.

This card is the perfect card to show someone special in your life  how much they are loved!
