Doodlebug Designs: Countdown to Valentine's Day

 Hi Everyone,  I've got my first project up on the Doodlebug blog today!!  I created this Valentine's countdown calendar using the new Sweetheart collection.   I originally purchased this frame to create an Advent calendar, unfortunately I didn't have the time to finish the project before the season.  Instead of waiting a whole year, I decided to make a Valentine themed one!

 Since I was only working with 14 days as opposed to 24...I didn't need to use all the space in the frame.    I decided to create a little banner "title" using banner shapes I die-cut, some great Sweetheart papers and stickers and some Sweetheart Twine.

 The Treat Bags were the perfect base for my project, and the perfect size for a little treat. For the rest of the project I just decorated and numbered each bag with lots of little goodies from the Sweetheart Collection!

It's all filled and ready to go!  Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to keep checking the Doodlebug blog for more Valentine's Day inspiration!
