Karen is up on the blog today with a sweet scrapbook layout all about love. She uses the theme of love to gear the colors towards red, as in little red hearts!!
All you need are four photos and bit of vellum, transparency, and foil to make this project so unique. Rinea paper foils die cut beautifully. I used metallic ruby foil to die cut the title and then cut it in vellum to offset over the foil. I also used a mini paper punch to cut some smaller hearts. I think you will agree, it is stunning in its simplicity.
You can find the step by step tutorial below.
Here are some up close pictures of the page.
The ruby Rinea foil is under the velum and it gives it such dimension!!

Hi all Sonja here. We made it through Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Valentine's! I am sure people are ready for a break from Holidays, however, I had to do this stack of hearts door hanger using Rinea Foil papers even if it is past the holiday hearts and flowers are fun year round!
Materials Needed:Rinea Foil: Gold, light pink, red, and dark pink
Glue or adhesive tape
Die cutter (Silhouette Cameo 3 and Sizzix Big Shot)
Embossing sleeve (optional)
Step One: Strips of Foil
Start by cutting 6 strips of each color. I cut my strips at 0.75 in. wide by 13 in. tall.
Step Two: Prep
To prep for the heart, I folded each strip in half.
Step Three: Lining of Heart
After folding each strip in half, I needed to trim the inside pieces. Leave the outer shell at 13 in. tall. The inside pieces need to be a little bit smaller then the next so that you end up with a stacked set of strips. Each piece doesn't have to be an exact measurement from the next piece, just has to be shorter!
NOTE: Each heart has two of the same strips in it. So two dark pink, two light pink, and two gold equaling 6 strips per heart. This is a designers choice you can go with more strips or less.
Step Four: Check Measurements
At this point, I checked to make sure that the strips would make the heart correctly and trimmed any strips that were too long. After checking to make sure all the pieces fit, set aside.
Step Five: Cut and form Flowers
I chose a rose file I had in my Silhouette library from the Silhouette store.
I cut three roses in the two sided gold/red foil. The settings for my Cameo 3 was on vinyl, blade 1, and pressure 1.
Step 6: Optional embossing and assemble of flowers
Just to add some texture, I decided to emboss a few pedals. After the embossing, I poked a brad through the middle of each layer. Once the pedals are all secure, I took a tool and curled the ends. You can do this with anything that is small and round
Step Seven: Assemble Heart
Add running tape to the end of each strip in the size order of longest to shortest. Line up the ends and secure together. Bend the strips into a heart shape and secure the ends together. Add glue at the bottom of the heart between each layer and secure until dry. At this point it looks funny, but just secure the bottom strips as instructed. Secure the bottom pieces brings the heart together.
Step Eight: Decorate
I decided I wanted the flowers inside of the hearts. Another option would be to string them between each heart as well. But I wanted to glue my hearts stacked on each other.
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a Valentine's Day project using Rinea Foils. Valentine's Day is only a few days away and this card and matching gift bag make a wonderful statement for someone special.
I have this amazing Spellbinders die that is perfect for Valentine's Day creations. Once I die cut Glossy Red/Gold Foil, I had this lovely die cut image. As I looked at the image, I realized I wanted to fill in all the details with another foil so I used Embossed Silver Foil and die cut the image again. Then I rebuilt the design with both colors.
Next, I used an assortment of stamps from Joy Clair to create my backgrounds.
I die cut the heart into a circular shape and inked the edges before matting with a larger red cardstock circle. This was then added to a large doily that formed the backdrop of my projects.
Repeating this process I created a coordinating card.
For added dimension, I placed assorted dew drops around the hearts.
Erin here today with a fun 3D heart Valentines banner anyone make, even kids!! The Rinea foils make these EASY hearts to pretty and illustrious that as simple as they are to make they look amazing!!
These hearts are so easy, you just need to layer different sizes together and then glue them onto a little tag shape in canvas (from Canvas Corp). Here is a video tutorial on how to make these fun 3D hearts, plus how to make the fun die cut ones on the end.
The hearts can be as flat or 3D as you want them you be, but I like them a little more dimensional!
- I stick with pinks, reds, and neutrals for this banner, simple canvas tags with golds really make the pink and gold Rinea foil just shine!
This banner is wonderfully easy to make for a school party, adult party, home decor, or just for fun! It can also be made by kids, since the hearts are just in layers!! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Hello, everyone! Nadine here today with a rosy Valentine project. Have you ever saw something in a store that you thought was really cute but then looked at the price tag and thought you could it make it for less than that? Well, that is exactly how I came up with this Valentine's project.
To create the roses I used Rinea's Crafter's Roll in Embossed Hot Pink.
Want to see how I created these roses and project?
Watch my tutorial video below....
The Rinea foil works like no other, it can be bent and folded to hold its shape as seen in the below project. Here are some examples how the foil can be use for home décor or gift jars made by Julie McGuffee.
In this first jar the silver plain foil paper is run through a metal die to give it amazing texture and then backed with the red embossed foil behind to make it pop. At the top is a fun start using a rosette using a folding technique, perfect for the top of a jar. Here are a couple other rosettes made in the same fashion.
A simple and easy way to dress up a jar is to punch out the foils and glue them to to the sides of the jar, pick any shape you want from hearts, stars, snowflakes, circles, and so many more!!
Last we have a sweet little votive with a flared middle, which will stay in place due to the nature of the foil!! Cut slits into a rectangle foil and glue to the top and bottom of the votive glass and it create this amazing look of a lantern, line it with a few gems at the top and you have a one of a kind tea light candle holder.
