Love is in the Air

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it seems that LOVE projects are popping up all over the blogosphere and www in general...I *heart* this time of the year.  So many nostalgic memories like making mailboxes from shoeboxes, cutting hearts from construction paper and finding just the 'right' valentine card for that 'special' boy in your class...you surely didn't want to give one that was too suggestive to the boy that you didn't like...oh the stress of it all hehe!
I have a couple of new projects to share with you this Thursday, so let's get goin'

TOTALLY TERRIFIC THURSDAY
is my day over at the I Heart {Ippity} Blog


IPPITY-IB-005 WISE GUY
I stamped the image twice onto two different patterned papers (I used Suzy Ultman's Lion Sleeps by K&CO.) and then carefully cut out the wings and eyes, attaching them to the body with foam dots.
The cute crepe paper trim is from my Etsy shop...I added the stamped title to the top portion and then topped with buttons and twine. I wanted to dress up the eyes and give some texture, so I glued on two small black poms :) Many different avenues with this sweet stamp set! And my guy loves pink, so I thought it would make a cute Valentine card.
Lots and lots of new releases out this month!  Be sure to visit Heather and she can set you up with Ippity Stamps.

IMAGINISCE
LOVE WEEK
It's LOVE WEEK over at Imaginisce's Blog!
Cards, layouts, mini albums, altered projects...it's all been covered this week.
I was asked to create a mini album (I think everyone knows how much I LOVE makin' 'em)
so I started with my Cricut and the sweet papers and embellishments from the brand new
 SOLE SISTERS Collection

And a little peek at the inside pages...total of 6 for adding photos to.
Imaginisce is giving away lots of goodies this week...just go to their blog and leave your comments on the LOVE WEEK posts and you'll be in the drawing for some cool new tools :)

Busy week at Etsy!  So off I go to finish up on some orders before it's time for work.
See you all soon!
