Mini BFF Valentines

Hello!  I have a collection of mini Valentine cards up at 
using the February "It Takes Two" Kit and Add-On Kit!

These were made at the request of my daughter, for her three ‘besties’ on Valentine’s Day :)  They’re hip and fun and perfect for 13 year-old girls!

  First I started with a sheet of 12X12 white cardstock from the kit and cut it down to 
measure 7″ X 4.25″.  The pieces were then scored so that the card measures
 3.5″ X 4.25″ when folded; these are an A1 sized card.

 The first card includes the retro inspired ferris wheel sticker from the large sticker
 sheet by Echo Park.  The 3-D stickers by Crate Paper are glittered in gold, so the 
little arrow gave the right amount of shine.

 The second card showcases the softer side of the kit with the light wood grain and 
chipboard accents by Crate Paper.  I wanted to pic up on the bit of turquoise
 blue in the mat paper, so I added the acrylic heart and topped it with a sticker.

This final card is all things X’s and O’s!  There are many elements that boast the hugs
 and kisses symbolism in the kits.  I went with the red and blue pieces and built this 
really cute card.  Just leave off the bow and you have a sweet, but masculine card.

As of today, these kits are still available, as well as other exclusive
Scraptastic Club goodies!  Check it out 


  1. WOW - these are super hip and trendy and majorly fun!! Each one has a dynamic about it that just pleases the heart!! I am so glad you created these cool valentines for your daughter's friends!!!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**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.
