Lori Whitlock Blog Hop - Dry Erase "I Love You Because" Frame

  Hi friends - welcome to Lori Whitlock's February Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Cathy's blog or you can start at the very beginning at Lori's blog.

So in honor of February being the month of Love , I decided to create a fun little dry erase frame that is not only perfect for Valentines Day coming up, but actually for any day. I love Valentines Day, but am sad that it only lasts one day - so I wanted to come up with a fun way to keep the love going all month ( or year) long :)

This project is made with an inexpensive frame and some of my favorite Lori Whitlock cut files and digital papers.I knew when I saw the "I Love You Because" phrase in the shop that it was exactly what I wanted to use. I also added a handmade I Love You card to tie it all together.

 The nice thing with using a dry erase marker, is you can change your saying every day if you want to . This is such  a fun way to tell that special someone what you love about them anytime. I plan on making one of these for each of my kids and maybe the hubby too :) 

I love the 3D hearts on this card. I added a paper bow to the base and then layered 3 hearts that are scored down the middle and layered them on top of each other to make the 3D feature. 
Here is a list of the products I used and you can find them in the Lori Whitlock Shop or in the Silhouette store. I also used some digital elements and papers that can be found on Lori's site on Snap Click Supply. I love using the print and cut feature on my Silhouette to use some of the darling digital elements that Lori designs.
