This week we are bringing you TONS of Valentine's Day inspiration using the Valentina collection, along with some pieces from our everyday collections sprinkled in here and there. I asked our talented designers to focus on fun little projects, and they did not disappoint! We have a fabulous mix of projects to share with you this week.
“My Everything” gift, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays, and I just love giving away little gifties to my friends and family! I started with a food safe glassine bag filled with Valentine's colored candy corn. To decorate the bag, I added strips of patterned paper from the Valentina collection. I also added some coordinating stickers and even a cupcake cutout (from the Valentina Daily Details sheet). For embellishment, I added some ribbon, twine, and various Enamel Dots and Enamel DooDads.

“Snap Chat” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I cracked up when I saw the Snap Chat graphic (from the Valentina collection)! For my card, I went with the black & white color theme of the focal image and combined a couple of different patterned papers (also from the Valentina collection) to create a quilted collage background. I also added a little sentiment sticker on the upper right corner. For a bold pop of color, I added a Punch Enamel DooDad to the camera.

"Love You", by Jennie McGarvey.
I knew that in creating a Valentine's page that Valentina would be the natural choice! I did combine a little of that there, but I thought it would be fun to take my favorite color scheme (red + blue) and create a LOVEly page that was Valentine's Day inspired. It's a different take on one of the traditional colors for the holiday.
