Trio of Valentine’s cards

Hello crafty friends!

Today, I am sharing with you what I created with the February add-on Record It.  One of my favorite products to get is 6×6 paper pads.  I think they are so versatile and such a great value!

Using the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day 6×6 paper pad and the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams gold puffy hearts, I created 3 mini Valentine cards for my family.  Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays…specifically for the Valentine scrapbooking products!  I love hearts, pink, red, and love sentiments!

For my first card, I cut out some black and white strips of pattern paper, and glued them to a piece of white card stock that I die cut into a square.  I added machine stitching to a few of the strips, and then adhered it to a red card base.  Then I added the I heart you sentiment and the gold puffy heart.

For my second card, I die cut 2 different sized squares from pattern paper.  I added a Love you sentiment to the red square.  I also added some flowers that I fussy cut from a pattern paper from the Dear Lizzy 6×6 paper, and a gold puffy heart to the red square.  I adhered the black striped paper to a white card base, and then added the red embellished square on top with foam adhesive.

For my last card, I die cut 2 different sized squares from pattern paper.  On the ombre paper, I added some gold ink splatter.  I adhered the ombre paper to a red card base, them added the text pattern paper on top with foam adhesive.  I added the Elle’s Studio Love You sticker and a gold puffy heart on top.

I hope you like my cards!  I know my girls will love them.  I hope that I have inspired you to get crafty!

Have a lovely day!

Valentine Banner

Hopefully by now many of you are having fun creating with your Only You January Kit. After creating a few layouts, I still had a bunch of kit pieces and thought they would be perfect on a Valentine banner.


Banners are one of my favorite things to paper craft because they come together quickly and add a fun touch of decor.


In addition to using the main January kit, I also used pieces from the You and Me add-on. The Pink Paislee Paper Goods had a great selection of little hearts and arrows that made layering up little embellishments really easy.


The Fancy Pants Die Cut cards in the kit are one of my favorite embellishments this month. They come as plain tag board which looks great at it is, but it is also perfect for misting or painting to make it any color to match your project. I pulled out three Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mists from my stash (in Bronzer, Primrose and Tropicana Teal) to mist the Fancy Pants cards.


The “happy” letters were punched out from one of the Fancy Pants die cut cards. I love that the cards give both letters and the negative space with the word.


I used an Elle’s Studio tag from the add-on as one of the banner pieces. It was fun to mix up the traditionally shaped banner pieces along with some tags and little tickets.


For the base of my banner pieces, I used a 1959 dictionary from my grandma. I love that I have something that belonged to my grandma on display in my home!


I used the Glitz Designs Paper Garland from the main kit to attach all of the banner pieces. I laid the pieces out in the order I wanted them and then set the garland right above the pieces. I then dotted tacky glue onto the banner lining up the glue with where the garland would be placed.

This was a fun project that only took a couple of hours from start to finish. So if you are looking for a way to use up the last bits of your January kit before your February kit arrives, you may want to consider making a banner!

Valentine Mail

When I saw some little metal mailboxes in the dollar section at Target, I knew I had to get them!

I picked up one for each of my kids. Using the February Kit, I covered them with lots of paper, alphas, glitter stickers and valentine cards.

My kids love them and can’t wait to see what they get in them for Valentine’s day.
