Yarn "Love" Letters

I stumbled on an amazing new blog - My Sister's Suitcase.  I love the crafts they've done so far and see this as a top blog I follow!

They made these awesome yarn letters for Valentine's Day.  I have a ton of yarn in the garage - the benefit of having a sister that crochets like crazy and gives me most of her left over yarn from her finished projects.  So I dug around for a while and found 3 colors that would give this Ombre effect - red, fuschia, and light pink.
**Be sure to check out the photos of the original - my fuzzy phone picture doesn't do it justice.

I had trouble with the "O" since it was curved and not straight like the others.  I'm still not happy that the yarn lines aren't all horizontal.  Believe me, I tried, but had too many issues, so I just ended up doing it in the round way like the example.  I love how they turned out and am excited to have a larger decoration.  Most of my Valentine's Day stuff is small, and stacked the way this is, it's about 16 inches tall.

Valentine's Stacker

Here's my Valentine's Day Stacker...
pic from my phone, so the colors are a bit brighter than actual colors.  But I opted to go with all pink shades of paper instead of red - I love the middle paper - it's actually a raspberry sherbet color...not neon like the pic is showing.  I also made a glitter heart for the top stacker ... cause glitter is just fun!

Here's the fonts I used:
Love - Smiley Monster
Hugs & Kisses - Thinking of You
Be My Valentine - O{Photo} Shoot!
