that comes to mind when you think February? For me it's Valentine's Day. With Valentine's Day just a few short weeks away, our DT has been working on some fabulous projects that will hopefully inspire you to create some homemade goodies for your Valentine(s).
Jenn made this cute heart-shaped Valentine.
She used the new Silhouette Nesting Scallop Hearts and Chocolate Covered Strawberry. The title was cut with the 4x8 Banana Split alphabet and the heart is from the original Icing Rub-Ons starter set. This would be a great card to stick inside your hubby's lunchbox for a little surprise!
Now, look at what Brenda created!
She calls it the "Love Bug Pencil Valentine". Isn't it adorable?! To create this, Brenda started with a new Valentine themed pencil. Then she grabbed a 1" x 11 3/4" piece of Cardstock and using her Score-Pal she scored at 1 inch intervals. Then she used the BK Cameron Font to create the facial features. She cut one uppercase "O" and cut in half for the mouth, two lowercase "o" centers for the eyes, and one lowercase "o" center for the nose. To create the antennas, Brenda used the Quickutz Butterfly KS-0413. She also used a punch for the center of each square to create the hole for the pencil to go through and a corner rounder to round the edge of the bug's face. Here's a close-up of the little guy:
This would be an awesome Valentine for your kids to give to their friends at school!
Veronica had was feelin' the love too. She created this beautiful layout to document her wedding.
Veronica started out with some beautiful Pink Paislee papers and added the Quickutz Revolution Birds, Revolution Label, and she mixed the Jacqueline and Banana Split fonts. Here are some close-ups of the title and journaling.
Such a beautiful layout!
I do have one announcement before I close today. Scrap-Mart will now be carrying stamps!!
At CHA, we met the fabulous team from Unity Stamp Company. They have a very unique stamp block and their stamps are just wonderful. Here's a quick video from Angela at Unity describing their stamps and blocks.
What do you think? I can't wait to get my order and ink 'em up! I have a little giveaway for you today. All you have to do is leave us a comment on THIS post and let us know what you think about the new stamps. I will randomly pick a winner to receive 3individual stamp samples from Unity that I brought home from CHA.
