2 for 1 is always a great thing, right? How about this: Start by creating a dozen borders using the Mi Amor collection. Then cut them apart and use one set to decorate an 8×8 Album for your sweetheart and the other set to make a dozen Valentine greeting cards.

We know that you all love a great sketch.
Sketches have so much life in them. Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities. You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.
Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you. They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely. There are not measurements, so you can make it yours.

This day is just flying by!
So much of North America is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend! Here in Minnesota we are having some unseasonably WARM weather (we are NOT complaining). But, it means that we are longing for Spring–which we know is realistically a few months away. Before we can think about spring, we need to think about Valentine’s Day! What do you think of when you hear that holiday mentioned?

Have you gotten your hands on the brand new Cake My Day product Collection? It is — So. Much. Fun! Such bright and bold colours, great patterns, and a funky fresh take on a traditional birthday theme.
While I absolutely love making cards of all kinds – I sometimes find that whipping up a batch of birthday cards to have on hand for when I don’t have time to create always seems to come in handy. You just never know when a birthday will slip your mind, your little one will come home from school and announce it’s time to go to a birthday party she forgot to tell you about, or life will just be too busy to allow for a bit of time to create a card on demand. When you’ve got a little stack that you can pull from in a pinch it’s nice that you’re still able to show how much you care by giving the recipient a handmade card.

I always turn to my digital scrapbooking collections when creating cards, invites or posters for special occasions. Valentine’s Day is one of those times when I love to create cards for my loved ones and Valentines for my children to take to school to deliver to their friends and classmates.
Mi Amor digital kit has lots of embellishments to suit all ages from children to adults.

Today I want to share with you one of my absolute favourite fun folds for making cards. It’s called an easel fold. Every time I’ve given an easel card to a friend or family member they are always received with such awe and amazement – when really, it’s such an easy card to make!
So, I chose to use Mi Amor for these cards because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s sort of fun to go all out and make an extra special, handmade card to show the ones you love just how special they are!
As the photos show above – this fun fold will allow your cards to sit on display in a propped up position so that not only does your card front show, but also some of your inside embellishments and any greeting or message you choose to write below your embellishments!
