Hanging Wall Hearts

My husband and I and my parents are leaving today for a two-week trip to London and Ireland.  I’m looking forward to having a wonderful time with them.   

This wall hanging uses heart and flower cutting files from the Pazzles library.  It was posted as a Design Team project on the Pazzles Craft Room website May 6 here.  If you get a chance to check out their website, it would be worth your while.  There were some great projects and ideas posted for the recent National Scrapbooking Day Challenge.

    Tara, what part of Ireland are you visiting. I live in Belfast in the North of Ireland but will be travelling to the South of Ireland this weekend. I would love to meet up with you for a coffee if you are free or anywhere near me.

      Hi Michelle! There is nothing I would love more than having the honor of meeting you in person! We won’t be going to Ireland though until next Tuesday. We will be staying in Dublin for only two days before returning to England. Perhaps some day we can meet! as we travel once a year to England. A heartfelt thank you once again for your faithful, wonderful comments!! 🙂

    So so sorry Tara, I forgot to say how gorgeous this beautiful heart project is. I saw it on the Pazzles site and loved it. xx

    Tara, you amazed me with all the great ideas. Funny thing, I have an inspiration for several years now. And to be brutally honest, I never used it at all. I have a cricut expression and a cricut imagine, and have only used them.
    Until yesterday.
    I came upon your Altered Pringles can, then saw some other things, then after about an hour of drooling, I signed up for your blog, dusted off my Inspiration machine, did an update, and went to the beginners free tutorials on the Pazzles site. I am happy to say I welded my first title, and cut my first image. I cannot wait to get home from work and play some more. I do have a question, and I hope you can help, but are there more beginners tutorials on the site with a membership. I think I was intimidated with the machine. But OMG it is easier to use than I imagined. I see that the possibilities are endless, cause looking at all your wonderful projects, I am simply stunned and amazed!!!
    What on earth was I thinking?! I am looking forward to learning and playing tonight
    Thanks for the inspiration

      Hi Regina, Thanks so much for taking the time to make such nice comments. I’m glad you have dusted off your Pazzles and are trying it out. I also have a Cricut Imagine, that I bought as soon as it was released – but only used it for a short while before realizing I like the Pazzles so much better. As a Pazzles Craft Room member, not only do you have access to all the instructional videos, but there are lots of great cutting files that you will have as well! The instructional videos are very helpful and cover so many things. Over the years, these tutorials have enabled me to use the software to make my own cutting files! There are great beginner video tutorials, as well as great intermediate and advanced video tutorials. All are easy to understand. I am still learning about all the amazing capabilities it has! Thanks again!
