Love is in the Air

Valentine banner

We’re celebrating LOVE with the rest of the world this week! Valentine’s Day is Wednesday, February 14, and we have so many wonderful images for celebrating! Our Design Team sends their love this week by creating gorgeous projects with our love-ly images. You can always find any of our love images in the Stamps/Valentines Category on our website. You can visit it by clicking on that link or on the banner above.

You can see by our banner that some of our most loving images feature the irrepressible House-Mouse Family! These little mice are always showering one another with love, just like in the image above called Glitter Hearts! In fact, some of the wonderful design team from the House-Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog  (or if you’re need of a steady stream of sweet mice, visit them on Facebook) will be joining us this week to share their Valentine greetings with all of you. Let’s start with them:

Bunny Hoyle

Vickie Y

Christine Craig

Lorraine Aquilina

Sue Drees

And we thought we’d share the Valentine work of the recent winners on the HMFMCB –

Misti

Becky S

Janette van Otterio

 

Even artist Andy Skinner’s Team is dreaming of Valentines this week. Check out these incredible mixed media posts. We sure love them!

Brenda Brown

 

And, of course, our own Design Team has some love to share with you!

We hope you’ve got your favorite Valentine something sweet that’s ready to go! We’ll be back Wednesday to share more love!!

Spring Borders Die Set – Part II

Spring Borders Die set

We’re in love with our Spring Borders Die set! If you missed the Monday post, be sure to check it out here! MONDAY

We’re continuing today with an in-depth look at two more of the dies in this set!

The first one is the darling heart cut-out die! This die is designed to cut a “window” in your card’s 5-1/4″ X 4″ or larger, layer. It allows for paper piecing or a lovely peek at the inside of the card. Cutting it out also provides you with lots of little hearts you can use as confetti in your card.

The next die is the Ribbon Threader Die. These darling daisies just beg for a ribbon, twine, or strip of patterned paper to be threaded through their little holes. Such a cute way to add ribbon to a card or project!
