A Little Bit of Love

I was so excited to be contacted by the lovely Emily O'Brien from to submit a Valentines project for them.  So here's what I created, a set of 5 cute little Valentine cards.  So whether you're sending one to your sweetheart or you just want to let someone you know how special they are these little cuties are ideal.  Making a set of cards is great, as once you've got your design then you can just replicate, making them super quick to make.

I was also inspired by challenges at:
CRAFT - Valentines
Creative Card Crew - for a loved one
Allsorts challenge - It must be love, love, love
The Crafty Pad - Love is in the air

 All supplies used from Papertrey Ink:
Card stock - pure poppy, dark chocolate, new leaf, simply chartreuse, aqua mist
Patterned paper - bitty dot basics
Stamps - Tiny Treats
Ribbon - pure poppy
Inks - pure poppy, dark chocolate, new leaf, simply chartreuse, aqua mist
Copic Ciaos
Stickles - xmas red
Dies, circle and scalloped circle nestabilities

I hope you've made your Valentine's card, although you can always sneak out to supermarket in the middle of the night if you run out of time!

Wow, who stole the rest of January!  I'm super busy at work what with a trip to Paperword in Frankfurt and getting ready for CHSI (Stitches) - the UK craft trade show.  This Friday I'm at Inspirations by Cardcraft Plus in Preston, so I'm busy getting ready for that too.
We've also got a brand new launch this Saturday, it's 6 more gorgeous SWALK stamps and I'm so excited as one of the stamps is the iconic SWALK kissing couple and that's the one I've used in my Sneak Peek.
I've also been inspired by challenges at:
