ABC Game of Hearts



Wow!  Can you believe it?  Today is the LAST DAY of the Create with Connie & Mary Occasions Edition preview period!  Over the past two weeks each member of our design team had a FREE special project to share…I'm the LAST one!.  I am SOOO excited to be sharing my project AND BLOG CANDY…a FREE subscription to Create with Connie and Mary!!!  See details below!


What do you get for your Create subscription fee?  You get a new project EVERY DAY Sunday through Friday (with at LEAST TWO FULL TUTORIALS EACH WEEK) and a fun challenge on Saturday to join (and have the opportunity to win prizes at the end of the 5 weeks).  For those projects not having a full tutorial, we provide you with an easy to download and print project sheet!  HOW COOL IS THAT!


Today is the LAST DAY we will be offering a special subscription rate of $24.95 for 5 weeks of daily ideas using the stamps and products in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Mini Catalogs!  This is $5 off the regular 5 week price of $29.95.  Early Bird Pricing ends tonight, January 22nd at 11 pm EST!  So DON’T DELAY!  Head on over to the Create with Connie and Mary site to subscribe or click on the right of my sidebar!


I love altering 3D items and these Nugget Tins have been so much fun!  I usually fill them with candy…but wanted to do something different with them!  If you are like me, you probably have them in your stash!  I used the Love Impressions and Love Patterns Designer Papers to make my game, along with the Naturally Serif Strip Die!


I’m not going to go into a lot of details on my project because, if you head over to the Create with Connie and Mary site, you will have access to a FREE FULL TUTORIAL on how to make my project.  This will give you an idea of the type of projects and how we present the tutorials to our subscribers.


EVERY project comes with EITHER a step-by-step tutorial (like I’ve put together for this project) or a downloadable project sheet.  This makes it easy for you to print off the material to use either personally or in your classes!

This was a quick and easy game to make!  For younger children, you can have them spell the word from a selection of 4-5 letter hearts.  For older children, they can learn their spelling words from the entire selection!  I did make duplicates of some of the letters so that more words could be made.  Oh…and I used a different designer paper (Love Patterns) for the vowels, so they could learn to distinguish between them!


And…I used hearts, but think of other dies you could use throughout the year!  Wouldn't these be great to sell at Craft Fairs, too?
