♥ Crafty Secrets DT Challenge and February Linky Party! ♥

Happy Monday everyone! It is the 1st Monday of the month, so that means it's time for a new DT challenge for the Crafty Secrets girls and also a fun Linky Party for all of you!! Just create a card or whatever you like using some Crafty Secrets products, link it at the Feb. Linky Party post on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog and you have a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate to the Crafty Vintage Girl Store! And just for entering, you will automatically get a $5 G/C for free!!

This month the Crafty Secrets girls were challenged to make some things with a Love theme. I ♥ this challenge! I decided I wanted to make something using a Mason Jar. I love mason jars, so I thought why not turn one into a candle! I used some absolutely stunning digi papers by Crafty Secrets from the Radiant Paper Collection. (I adore that beautiful rose paper!! I could use it on every card! :) I just simply cut a strip of paper to fit inside of the jar and marked where the center was on it along with the center of the jar. I then punched a heart "window" in the paper and then reinserted inside of the jar. This way, you can see the Battery Operated Candle when lit.

I found these really cute Mason Jar Lids that come with a pre-drilled hole in the top, so you can insert a straw or soap dispenser through it. So I inserted a vintage straw in it to make my Candle Jar look a little whimsy! The beautiful Rose is from the Vintage Valentine Digital Kit. I hand cut it out and just adhered it to the front of the jar. And the "Heartfelt Wishes" is from the Heart to Heart Digital Art Stamps Set.

These would also make a great Table Marker and Candle for a Wedding! Just add the Table # inside of a Heart to the top of the straw!

I also made a Valentine Candy Tube using the Vintage Valentine Digital Kit. This kit is filled with so many adorably sweet things!!

Lastly, I made this card using once again the Radiant Paper Collection as well as a Free Valentine Printable (see a few posts below the Linky Party post on the CS Blog) and the sentiment is from the Be My Valentine Digital Art Stamp Set.

Now that you've seen my DT creations, now you must check out the amazingly gorgeous creations from my Super Talented Teamies!! Oh, and don't forget to join the Linky Party too!! ;)
