Happy Valentine's Day!

As a present to you, I'll show you what I made for Christmas presents {two and a half months ago... ha}.

Four sets of five cards for the varies sets of parents in my life. These were so fun and easy to make. Making four cards at a time is just about as easy as making one card. I'd do this again in a heartbeat!

1. Thanks #1: Supplies- Cardstock- Bazzill (Grey) and Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream and Spring Moss), Ribbon- Papertrey Ink (Spring Moss), Corner Rounder- WRMK, Stamps- Papertrey Ink (Autumn Abundance) and Hero Arts (CG128- Three Flowers), Ink- Tsukineko, Stickles- Ranger.

2. Thanks #2: Supplies- Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream), Patterned Paper- October Afternoon, Stamp- American Crafts, Scalloped Punch- McGill, Ink- Tsukineko, Corner Rounder- WRMK, Thread- DMC, Other- Newspaper.
3. Happy Birthday: Supplies- Cardstock- Kraft (The Paper Studio) and Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream),  Stamps- Hero Arts ( CG130 Butterflies and S5208 Designer Woodgrain), Happy Birthday- Printed with computer, Ink- Distress Ink by Ranger, Colored Pencils- Prisma, Stickles- Ranger, Corner Rounder- WRMK, Thread- DMC.

So there they are- five quick, simple cards that got rave reviews this holiday season. While we're at it, why don't I share a few projects that slipped through the cracks from December as well. I love these, so I can't just not share. :)

Here's a Christmas one that I did for the "cards that give" challenge at Hero Arts (but never submitted for... haha). The money, folded into forths, slides in and out easily, and the card still looks fine without the money there. Love this idea- I'm sure they'll be more like this sometime soon.
Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), Patterned Paper- Basic Grey, Stamps- Hero Arts (CG128- Three Flowers and CL343- Holiday Sayings), Corner Rounder- WRMK, Ink- Tsukineko, Colored Pencils- Prisma.

And here's one that's a little more appropriate for this time of the year. A congrats card for an engagement :) My roommate's friend is getting married. It's crazy to me to think that someone my age is planning a wedding.... I mean, other than me. My fabulous dream wedding in the fictional part of my brain :)
Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream and Spring Moss), Stamps- Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot Basics II and In Bloom), Ribbon- Offray, Pen- Signo, Embossing Ink and Powder- Ranger, Ink- Tsukineko, Corner Rounder- WRMK.

So I hope you enjoyed your trip down this strange holiday post. :) I love the random things that I find on my hard drive while organizing. Ha!

Have a wonderful day for all of you lovers out there. :)

Extra Love,
