Valentine's Day Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to our January Blog Hop featuring Valentine’s Inspiration. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Julie at 12 x 12 Travels . If you came from Chris' Creative Life then you are in the right place!

The sketch design for these cards came from the Snowhaven Card Workshop On The Go from Close To My Heart. The inspiration to change the workshop up & use the Heartstrings papers and Forever In My Heart stamp set came from Theresa Morrow.

All the cards use the Value Pack, White Daisy card bases & envelopes. Each card has a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Kraft Cardstock sponged with Desert Sand Ink.

Other ink colors used are Cranberry, Lagoon & Whisper. I love how much fun the Red Shimmer Trim and Stuck On You Puffies add to the cards.

Aren't these little puffies so much fun?!!

This awesome stamp set, Forever In My Heart was so easy to work with. I love how it compliments the Art Philosophy Cricut Bundle. The images above that have a red line around them indicate that you can cut them with the cartridge & stamp on the pre-cut pieces~.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Terry Ann's Just A Tad Craft.
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, My Creations With Michell.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Card Creations using our How To Books. So mark February 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
