Vintage Valentine Swap

I was able to participate in this swap for Valentine's day. We were
to make a Valentine project with a vintage feel, include a vintage card and candy.
Pam was my wonderfully creative and talented partner. She
definately "wowed" me with this creation!

This altered card with my initial may be my favorite part.

But, it is hard to say, because this glittered flower is so lovely.

Check out the details here.

She also included this cute heart shaped vintage Valentine card. I
would show you the candy, but I ate it too quickly for photos. Yummy
caramel and caramel covered marshmallows....just divine!

Here's my project...I altered a book cover with vintage wallpaper,
lace, buttons and hanging from the bottom, an old key and jeweled heart.

I just love velvet leaves and old earrings.

A closer view of the dangling "Key to my Heart".

I also included a vintage Valentine card and this box of bon-bons.
Thanks Pam for all of my wonderful Valentine goodies! My new pink project will probably stay out all year, for it is too pretty to go in the closet!


  1. You are so good at doing swaps!!! I love what you got and caramel covered marshmallows are my fav:-) Did you get the desk???

  2. Hey there girl, what a fun swap! Love your customized Valentine vintage creation from Pam. I"d leave it up all year too. My favorite pieces on your project are the velvet leaves with the earring and the dangling key. I'm sure your swap partner loved it!

  3. I just think that this kind of swapping is the best part of Valentine's day, don't you? Enjoy your goodies and have a lovely day!

  4. Hi Kana~
    I've looked at all of your lovlies here and then went to Pam's and spent an hour(!!!) there looking around. Both of you made delicious swap packages (That Linda does pick the most wonderful partners!)for each other. I have to tell you that your book cover collage is one of my favorite Valentine projects I've seen anywhere! The image is beautiful and the way you embellished with the velvet leaves and the dangling heart and key are just the perfect touches! Our style just keeps evolving all the time doesn't it?
    It was a real treat to visit here today!
    Happy Valentines Day!

  5. Love the swap and what you and Pam swapped were fantastic!!!!!!!

  6. This was a wonderful swap. I love love love my altered book cover. It is front and center on my mantle for all to enjoy. Of course I gobbled the candy before anyone else around here got their paws on it! Th vintage Valentine is displayed on my side board in my entry. Thanks Kana, I am glad we were partners! Hugs, Pam

  7. Awesome swap Kana...both are just so cute!
    I can't believe you ate the candy before showing could've shared!!!!
