Valentine's Week! Day 3 + a new team member

Hello, everyone! Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so we thought we would put together a little Valentine's Day Inspiration week with the design team! Come by every day this week to see some lovey-dovey projects!
Check out our previous posts:
Day 1
Day 2

Chari's card is too sweet!! She used Bee Mine to create a custom background, Here's the Scoop for her sweet treat, And a Partridge for the sentiment (love that a holiday set can be used year round), and our new set Critters on the Savanna (releases mid February) for the giraffes! She used mirror stamping. Here is a link to a video by Chari that shows this technique!

Next up we have our newest design team member, Elena Roussakis! Elena is fabulously talented, and we are so thrilled to have her join our team! Woohooo!!

Here is a little bit about her:


I drink lots of coffee.  Lots.  I’ve been happily married for 10 years. I’m a 30-something mom of three kids under the age of seven. When I’m not playing dress-up or cooking or cleaning the same messes for the 26th time in the same day, I like to make pretty things.



And here is her super sweet Valentine!

Elena used Dewey Decimal papers for her school themed Valentine. She also used Schoolhouse Backdrops, Check This Out, and Smitty's ABCs for her custom punny sentiment. My Silly Valentine and Blissful Botanicals helped create her "crest". This is just too cute!


Thank you all so much for stopping by and welcoming Elena to the team! We can't wait to show you more Valentine's Day inspired projects tomorrow! Sending hugs to you all :)
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,

Since this blog hop is in Julie's honor, I thought it would be nice to be inspired by Julie's amazing clean and classic style! Her videos are some of my favorites (her laugh is the best!), and the layout of this card was inspired by Julie, too. I love it! Bright colors and a little glitter are perfect for her also!


The next stop on the hop is Chari!!

Happy birthday, Julie!!!! Sending smiles!

Valentine's Week! Day 2 + class giveaway

Hello, everyone! Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so we thought we would put together a little Valentine's Day Inspiration week with the design team! Come by every day this week to see some lovey-dovey projects!
Check out our previous post:
Day 1 

Melissa S.'s treat bags are too cute and filled with candy! Yum! I love how she stamped with Bee Mine, You've Got Mail and Fanciful Frames in white ink on the kraft bags. She used some Dewey Decimal paper and stickers. The stickers are perfect for bags like these! Some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings is the perfect finishing touch!

Kim's card is too cute! Some die cut hearts and a cute Critters Down Under Kangaroo makes a perfect Valentine's card! I love that Happy Everything is such a good go-to set for holidays year round!

Valentine's Week!

Hello, everyone! Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so we thought we would put together a little Valentine's Day Inspiration week with the design team! Come by every day this week to see some lovey-dovey projects!

Tiffany's project is adorable! I just love when you guys get crafty with our papers and digital cutters! This is such a cute way to present some Valentine's Day treats. Tiffany used some of our new Pink Lemonade papers that will be available mid-February. She also used A Birdie Told Me and Bee Mine. I love that so many of our sentiments fit in those word bubbles! Peppermint Lawn Trimmings is also perfect for Valentine's Day!

I love that Valentine's Day inspired Latisha to create a love-themed card. This card would be great for a wedding or a new home, too! She used our new set Home Sweet Home that will be available in mid-February. It is such a fun set!

Our friend Danielle has put together a card drive for her friend's son. Read a little more below and send some smiles his way!
Just before Thanksgiving, Danielle from Neat and Tangled, heard news that a girl she went to high school with and her family had embarked on an incredibly difficult journey. They had discovered that their sweet little 2 year old boy, Grayson, had a tumor on his brain stem. Since then they have been on a roller coaster ride, and this is only part of the journey.  Grayson will begin chemotherapy this month as the next stage of treatment. Through all of this, the family has stayed strong, hopeful, faithful and positive.  And Grayson is a strong and spunky fighter :) Grayson's mom, Jackie, has a blog she keeps updated regularly, so you can get to know more about Grayson HERE.

 Danielle wants to just light up Grayson's life with some serious happy mail!  She talked to Jackie, and she informed her that Grayson and his brother love to get mail...and so, here we have the Happy Mail for Grayson Card Drive.

Grayson is super lucky to have a big brother, Aydan, who is 4 so make sure to send some awesome cards to him too! These boys love all things boy :) Rescue Bots, Geotracks, Angry Birds, Thomas the Train. Send these little men funny, happy, cards! We all know how much love goes into a handmade card, and even better how personalized they can be!"

Here is the important info:

The drive will run from January 21 - February 28
(If they arrive late because they are International that's okay too!)

Send them here:
Grayson Savery and/or Aydan Savery
c/o Danielle Walls
P.O. Box 5808
Wilmington, DE 19808
