Valentine Notebooks...

Time to break out the festive Valentine Papers! You can always be sure when I step away from my blog that I'm busy creating new projects! New Valentine paper from K&CO. I did a little distressing around all the edges. Sentiment is from PTI-Take Note and the circles are cut with my nesty dies. Selected a few hearts on the bottom and added some adhesive rhinestones.This particular notebook was a BIG work-in-progress! You see, my original layout called for hearts on this notebook as well, BUT after I did the Positively Pink polka dots (which look like RED if you ask me!) and added the leaves (PTI-First Fruits) it started to look like RADISHES!!!!! ACKKK! I had put this notebook aside deciding if I was going to trash or not...THEN, realized, "hey, I've got some radish paper!" So, in the end, I really like that my "trash" was revived into a sweet, little, TREASURE! The radishes are cut from a full 12x12 sheet of DCWV-Farmer's Market.PTI-Polka Dot Basics, First Fruits, Take Note, BG Basics: Text Style II I will be updating my Esty shop this week as well! I have already reduced the prices on some of my Christmas items and I will be adding some new notebooks (some of the above as well!) and a Valentine Bag Topper kit. We worked on my Daughter's V-day Cards over her break last week so I decided to make an extra kit to share if you'd be interested!

Happy Monday!

Love these! Can't wait till they are in your Etsy shop. I always say I'm going to copy one of your cards but I never do. I don't know who I'm kidding here! haha!!

I always enjoy seeing what you craete and these notebooks didn't disappoint. I bet that your girls love making things with you just like my little one does.

Dawn said...

Thank you ladies!

Flip-you crack me up! I got an email request the other day and was told all my work was going to be copied...I "almost" suspected you....LOL! Kidding of course:)

Mishy-I've got some paper for you! Hoping to get it popped in the mail this week:)

Isabel-my girls dooooo love to create...although, it does make me cringe when they "sneak" in my cs file cabinet and color on the most expensive paper they can find...shuttering! I do love each and every one of their creations! I do display all of their artwork on a tension wire (with clips for hanging artwork) that is bolted down on my living room wall!

ps...I totally would have replied to you all individually, but this chica lacks the skills of "the geek squad" and I have no idea how to link your responses to email:( I know it's possible, but I'm stumped!

Dawn.....wasn't me I swear! haha! I always have 'good' intentions of copying but I never do. Soooo...I just oh and ah over your work. I have tons of pics of stuff from blogs and magazines saved but I never seem to get around to copying it.

Question: I think I saw this on your blog awhile back but I can't remember....did you do something with a mini tin mailbox?? I want to do something similar and now I can't find the mini tin mail boxes to save my life.

About responding: If I type in my identity can't you just reply to my email address??? Maybe I'm wrong.
