"The Love Letters", by Nancy Damiano.
One of my favorite things about Bella is that their designs are so versatile. In this page I was able to mix bits and pieces of a winter line (Winter Wonder) and an Easter line (Spring Flings & Easter Things) to make a Valentine page! Although the themes are vastly different, most of the prints are interchangeable for any kind of page you want to make. I just added a simple row of hearts folded in half as a border to add in my bit of "love".
Winter Wishes: Icy, Blizzard, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Spring Flings & Easter Things: Tisket-a-Tasket, Minatures Stickers, Alpha+Bits Stickers
"100% Love", by Loredana Bucaria.
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day! I adore this day. It's sooo cute and has a magical atmosphere that surrounds us. This is a page dedicated to my dear hubby, the love of my life! Having him in my life makes me happy and strong and safe! Love you so much! This is a page for you! I had fun playing with different stickers, phrases and labels :) I adore every single element of the Lovey Dovey collection! Have a wonderful day!

"Simply Love", by Sue Mylde.
As a mom, there's nothing more beautiful than her children. My daughter has been needing a bit of layout love lately, because she's been noticing a number of layouts about her brother more than her so she wondered if there would be stories about her soon. And that's when I created this layout. To tell her how much I love her. A simple, good, strong love. That I couldn't imagine life without her and that she makes my life wonderful. Isn't it beautiful that loves comes in all shapes and sizes? Hope you all had a happy Valentine's day with your loved ones :)

"Be Mine" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I stuck with the usual pinks and reds for this Valentine's card. The new Punch Sophisticates paper and Pink-Red High Five Alphabets were the perfect pinks and reds to use! And I thought the calendar sticker from the Sunshine & Happiness Just Write Journaling Stickers would make a great background here and compliment the Sophisticates stuff well.

"Happy Valentine's Day" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I went a little less traditional with this card and used a lot of green and brown to compliment the usual pink and red Valentine's colors! I think it turned out kind of fun!

"Love" altered canvas, by Suzanne Sergi.
I wanted to create a last minute Valentine gift for my daughter's teacher. I had this 6x6 canvas from a previous project, and thought it would be perfect for valentine decor. I used many different Bella Collections for this project, and love that they all coordinated very nicely with one another. It was quick, and Macie's teacher loved it! A perfect decor piece to display on the kitchen counter, or part of your valentine dinner table.
