In honor of Valentines Day...

I've been excited to share with you my creations from the February "Heart" kit from Coordinates Collections...this kit is to DIE FOR!!!

Take a look at this:

LOVE IT!!! You can still grab one up for yourself right HERE

So here is what I came up with:

It's just so fun to work with these fun colors...I don't have an excuse to very often so it's a nice change!

This week I also taught a Valentine's Day card class at church and we had a fun time! Here are the cards I taught:

These are super easy and come together quickly...all you need is some fun paper, a few border punches (my all-time favorite scrapbooking tool these days), some ribbon or twine and a few heart punches and you're good to go!

Last but not least, I have to know, what are you getting your significant other for V-day?? I have three days to figure something out!!! =)

My challenge to you this month is in honor of Valentines day...create a handmade Valentines day gift! This could be anything, but there is one must use patterned paper and/or cardstock as the base. I created this bag topper to put on the top of a bag full of Hersheys hugs...the chocolates are all wrapped in pink, red and silver foil of course!

It's so fun to put a handmade twist on a store-bought gift! I created this topper using scraps of leftover patternend paper and cardstock, a $1.00 stamp from Michaels and some Bakers twine...and it took hardly any time at all. Hope you get excited to make one yourself!
