I spent the morning in the Craft Coop creating some Valentines from the Heart Happy Workshop. This kit is amazing…you can make one 12X12 layout, two 12X12 single pages, ten cards and five tags and still have paper left over to do your own thing with. There is also an option to do a Heart Happy Everyday Life Album.
The first thing I noticed about this paper is that it is not all pink or red…it’s an amazing combination of both along with Sapphire and Mint. The papers are also not Valentine specific…the stripes and geometric designs are perfect for everyday. To be honest with you, I’ve got a second packet on it’s way to me because I’m in LOVE!
The stamp set is just as cute too! How fun to put a diagram of your heart on a card…puppies, tacos, icecream, YOU. Yes please! Again…perfect for an anniversary, a cheery hello or to send someone a pick me up – not just Valentines here either!
These cards came straight from the workshop and were so much fun to make. I hope you’ll consider adding this Workshop & Stamp set to your shopping cart…even if you don’t use them this year you can get a jump start on Valentine’s Day next year!
If you are familiar with social media – you know that hashtags are a big deal, so I couldn’t resist using the #true love sentiment on this cute 4X4 card perfect for Valentine’s Day.

There is no doubt that I have fallen in love with the True Love Operation Smile stamp set. If you have not added this set to your collection, I really encourage you to – not just because it’s adorable, but because it benefits Operation Smile. Close To My Heart is donating seven dollars from the purchase of each True Love stamp set to Operation Smile.
I chose to start with a base of Raspberry which I embossed with the heart embossing folder (now retired) layered a piece of black cardstock and the image stamped on white daisy which I colored in with my ShinHan markers. I then stamped a scrap of white daisy with raspberry ink and used the new circle thin-cuts to cut it. I sponged the edges and popped it up with some 3D foam tape. Cute Valentine complete in less time than it took for you to read my blog today!
Since August 1st, 2016 – YOU, my customers have donated over $130 to help change the life of a child in personal donations and the purchase of this stamp set. I’ve decided to sweeten the pot a little further. When you purchase the True Love stamp set through my website from today thru February 13th I will match that $7 donation to Operation Smile. For as little as $240 you can provide a life changing smile in the life of a child.
These are the last two cards from my weekend card making frenzy…I’m still finding a little time to craft, but figured it was time to move onto something besides Valentines.
Don’t you just love the Love Ya Silly monsters? I can see lots of uses for this set. I stamped the monsters in the different colors of the Heartstrings Paper. Have you seen the “Puffies”…self adhesive, puffy stickers, the bow and heart are both from the Stuck on You collection. Super cute!!!
The second card was inspired by a card on page 13 of Seasonal Expressions 1. I just love that the Doodled Designs stamp is good for the front or inside of a card. Sometimes Simple Love is all you have to give.
Thanks for stopping by…I hope you’ve had a chance to get inspired to spread some love with a home made card.
