Valentine Countdown #2: Heart Pockets With January 2016 Paper Pumpkin

I was quite excited when I got the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. It is called Cute Conversations and has an adorable stamp set with sayings and a font like on the little sweetheart candies! And a bunch of heart, some sequins, and some Minta Macaron twine, I had visions on Valentine treat holders dancing in my head :)

 You can watch this video to see all of the goodies that came in this kit. Check out more information on Paper Pumpkin at the end of this post. 

Here are just a few of the ones I created. Don't worry, this post is quite photo heavy, and you will get to see them all  :)

  • I did discover that the retired Hearts framelits coordinate perfectly with these hearts, and I was able to cut out a bunch of the scalloped heart to use as the back of these heart pockets. 
  • I heat embossed words and hearts in Gold and Silver embossing powders, cut out the scalloped hearts in Thick Whisper White, Kraft, Vellum, and some gold vellum I had in my stash. 
  • Then I used a ruler and my bone folder to crease the tops of the hearts and folded them down. 
  • I used my sewing machine to first stitch the flaps down and attach the banners. 
  • Next I stitched the patterned paper hearts to the scalloped hearts to form a pocket. 
  • Then I stamped the rest of the sentiments in Versafine Onyx Black. 
  • I also stapled the sequin trim (don't you love that Watermelon sequin trim?!) and the Mint Macaron twine using a mini-stapler. 
  • I did glue a few lose sequins to one of the pockets, but decided that I had put enough work into this set of 30 treat pockets :)
Here is a close up of one of the vellum pockets. Isn't is sweet and delicate looking? But we all know that vellum is tougher than it looks, so this pocket will hold up to stuffing just fine :)

These are the Watermelon Wonder hearts. As you can see, I did some with mostly the stripes showing, and some with mostly the solid showing. I think the stripes are just a titch more fun looking :) Here are a few of the gold vellum scallop hearts, so very pretty in real life.

Blushing Bride is my closest guess for the color of these hearts. So stinkin' cute!! I like the stripes and the solids equally with these.

Dark Mint Macaron? That's what I am calling this color. I think the Kraft was a little dark for this group, but maybe only when you see it next to the white ones. Maybe?

Light Mint Macaron we'll call this one. I am really partial to the more pastel of these hearts. Not that I don't like the other ones, mind you.

Smoky Slate, I think. And who would have thought that gray could be a Valentine's color? Not me, until I saw this!

And the light Smoky Slate. It is such a light grey that the solid side was nearly the same color as the white cardstock, so I stuck with the striped side showing.

One more, with just a few hanging. These will probably go to my work to be hung up, then given to my co-workers. I will save a few to give to my family though :)
