It's that time of year when I have both my husband's birthday and Valentine's Day (as well as the first day we met!) all within a week of each other!
I used the Mojo Monday blog as a great starting point to use some of our new goodies and make up a masculine Valentine or birthday card (I'll post that in a day or so):
The new Retro Fresh papers coming out next week are perfect for masculine projects!
Love the fun, yet still subdued, colour combination here! And the new stamp set, Starburst Sayings, was just perfect for a Valentine's Day card. Actually, that particular stamp is wonderful to send to anyone for any occasion.
I think I need to use it on a layout!
I did size the card down a little bit to get the circle to be in proportion, which is a great excuse to make my own coordinating envelope!
I tell you the truth: ANY project becomes absolutely luscious with a printed envelope, either like this or with a liner.
And on that topic, Stampin' Up!'s Envelope Liner Dies are now 40% off!
I was looking for a place to use this awesome new ribbon – Chevron meets twill! I've used it on a layout, too, which I'll put up in the next few days.
Please have a look at my calendar to the right – it's always a work in progress but much of next year is already up.
