Paint Swatch Valentines

Whew.  Yesterday was a very long and busy day – I got my car stuck in the mud in the morning,  conducted an Exterior Color Consultation in the rain, and then did a Speed Staging in the late afternoon.  More about the Speed Staging in a future post, but for today I am reposting a post from last year especially for color-lovers everywhere:

 Handmade Valentines Using Paint Swatches

I picked up these paint chips at Lowe’s while I was shopping for lighting and plumbing fixtures for a client this week.  The paint swatches with the holes work great – just glue card stock to the back and stamp in the white spaces that show through.  You can get a million different decorative stamps and ink at Michael’s.  I got the idea from Vanessa over at Silly Eagle Books.
