Ah, Valentine’s Day — the day with love in the air, heavy chocolate consumption and procrastinating boyfriends/husbands and girlfriends/wives flooding grocery stores and flower shops with last-minute shopping. At its core, Valentine’s Day is all about showing appreciation for the people who you love most in your life. Whether it’s a significant other, friends or family, we all have a Valentine in our life. Take the time to show them that you appreciate them and love them by doing something special on the 14th this year! It could be a card, a nice dinner or even just a hug — whatever you can do to spread a little love.
Today, we’ve got a card sketch idea for you in case you’re looking for a last-second thoughtful gift!

Valentine’s Day is coming and Creative Memories has the cutest collection to document those lovey dovey or not so lovey dovey moments! Have you seen the Bee Mine collection? Oh, my goodness, it is the cutest collection ever and I am so excited I got to play with it. I really like the tiny print patterns on a few of the papers so I selected a few of those sheets for my layout. And the stickers and layered embellishments are gorgeous! A girl can never have too many embellishments. Those frames were calling my name the moment I saw them! I couldn’t wait to use them. Can you hear the excitement in my words? Seriously, I love it.

A little bit retro, and a whole lot of bright, colorful fun. That’s how I’d describe the new Bee Mine collection. Pair it with the new Daisy Bouquet Punch and the Arrow Border Maker Cartridge and you’ve got a party!
I had so much fun playing with the bright colors and patterns on this super cold and gray Minnesota winter day. It’s great therapy for the winter blues. Give it a try! You’ll be smiling in no time.

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!
