Happy Valentine's Day

Ok, so this is a little late. I meant to have this posting up yesterday, but I am fighting an awful head cold! Not to mention I have been busy. I have been working on a few projects, but nothing that I have finished for posting. My most recent project was the cards I made for my Valentine's this year. I think they turned out so cute!
Miss Olivia's card

Karis' (aka Squishy) card

Kevin's card

Elliot's card

I took a 12x12 piece of red cardstock and cut out 4 4x8" pieces of paper and scored them at 4". I folded them in half and then cut my cream mat at 3.5x3.5". Then I took my ADORABLE valentine's paper and cut it at 3.25x3.25? square, fussy cutting around the figure that I wanted to stand out. For example, the little fisherman above. Then I embellished with red baker's twine, black cardstock stickers, red self adhesive rhinestones, bottle caps, handmade roses, punched flowers and cardstock letter stickers.

I am working on my first paper bag album, thanks to Brandy! She has been so good about sharing how-tos with me. Thank you! I even scraplifted her matting formula. She is a scrapbooking genius! You can check out her Etsy store at or her facebook page by clicking here. Brandy also has listings on eBay with the design team The Paper Hen House. You can search their listings by typing TPHH in the search bar. All of Brandy's creations are beautiful! Her attention to detail and her sense of color and design is impeccable. Also, she has great taste in papers! ; )

So, again, thank you Brandy! I will be sharing some photos of the album when it is finished. I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
