Valentine Blog Hop

Welcome to probably the largest Angel Blog Hop yet...and why not? I mean who doesn't love Valentines? I remember making home made valentines with my mom and now making them with my own children...ah, the memories!

Sometimes you may not have a strictly Valentine-y stamp set but that's okay...here's my version of a non traditional image from Everyday Events. Sticking with red paper helps but I love this little "XOXO" saying from the My Journey stamp set - it really gets the message across.


I used my Scor Pal to emboss the lines and then used my sanding block lightly over the red paper (it's textured and from the Bright DCVW pack). I love the punch the black and white gingham ribbon gives it!

If you want to give someone a special treat for Valentine's Day, here is a little milk carton box sure to delight anyone! I orginally found the pattern here but needed some modifications so my talented friend Juliet redesigned it for me!

When you click on this it will open up and you can print full size


Supplies to decorate this box are from The Angel Company and include: More Mimi Soar with it Collection and matching Bazzil cardstock, Lemonaid Buttons and Flowers, Scrappers Floss (the clip is since retired and the felt is stuff I had and I just cut out a heart free hand). Here too I used some little words from the My Journey stamp set. It's a "must have", I tell you!

Please be sure to visit these talented ladies...it's sure to get your heart pumping!


Thanks to Stacy over at Paperwings for putting this all together.
