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 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'

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

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.

It's LOVE WEEK over at Imaginisce's Blog!
Cards, layouts, mini albums, altered'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 of 6 for adding photos to.

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
