Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes will be inspired by popular songs – the first is “I Think I Love You.” Our Blog Hop today is jam-packed with projects that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or that showcase love. How sweet is that?! We are excited to share our love-themed creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I went a little “Love You” crazy on my card! This week I have been making cards using ideas and layouts from cards that are several years old. I found the idea for today’s card in a box of old swap cards. I loved the idea, so I recreated it with LOVE in mind.
I have been going a little overboard with the bright colors lately. This is another one. It didn’t start out that way, but sort of evolved. Hopefully you can see that it would be cute in more subdued, and maybe less, colors!
The paperclip is the focal point of the card and can be used as a bookmark or attach a magnet for a totally different purpose. To make the paperclip heart, I cut a solid heart and the stamped heart using the Lots To Love Box Framelits. I placed several stampin’ dimensionals between the two hearts and around the paperclip. The two Lemon Lime Twist hearts are cut using the same set of framelits as well.
The measurements will be at the bottom of the post after the blog hop list. There are also some hints to make the paperclip fit better.

Measurements and Hints:
- The card base is 5 1/2 X 8 scored and folded in half
- The next layer is 5 1/4 X 4
- The DSP layer is 5 X 3 3/4
- The larger Pocket layer is 2 1/2 X 4 1/2
- The next layer is 2 1/4 X 4 1/4
- The DSP strip is 1 1/8 X 2 1/4
- Hint: I used the 3/4 ” Circle Punch and punched in the center of the top pocket layer. I then punched again just a little on each side of that to allow the paperclip to slide in.
- When you are taping the pocket layers together, have the paperclip through the slit. Otherwise the pocket is too flat and may pull away from the card. The same when applying the pocket to the card.
- I suggest using Tear & Tape, or a similarly strong tape and go around the edges of both layers. (Adhering to the bottom pocket layer and the card itself.
