A Sweet Alexandra Renke Children Pair Valentine…

Hi everyone! Hope your February is full of red cardstock, dies, stamps and papercrafting stuff! lol  I purchased two packs of this Be Loved pattern paper a year ago or was it two years and I’m still on the first pack!  EEK!  Hey, the 2nd pack might be vintage someday! hehe

It worked up so cute with this sweet die from Alexandra Renke called ‘Children Pair’.  It was hard to type that because that is not how I would title something! lol

Cindy at has an amazing selection of Alexandra Renke dies, papers and washi tape… oh I love them ALL!   If you haven’t already ‘window’ shopped there, you NEED to!  ❤

I die cut three of the kids and glued them together.

Did any of you see the new product that’s coming out in March?  It’s called a glue sponge!!!  Well, I couldn’t wait and had to try it myself. I know, you’re not surprised.  I will buy the ‘real’ thing too.  Anyway, I used one of the small snap type, airtight, lunch box containers and a sponge.  I wet the sponge with our RO filtered water, squeezed it out really good, then applied a few coats of PVA glue that Cindy carries in her store HERE and I love this glue.  It didn’t take near as much as I thought it would!

Yesterday two of our grandsons were making Valentines here and wow did it work slick for gluing small hearts to their cards. Good for their motor skills using a tweezers too. lol  I can’t wait to use it for more intricate dies!  YAY for tools!

A super simple flat Valentine but sweet as can be!  Hope I inspired you to dig into that pattern paper stash and see what you can come up with!
