The Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Celebrating Love

Valentine's Day is in less than a week, so what would be more fitting than Celebrating Love as this months Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. It worked out perfect for me this month, as my card making class also requested a "love" theme this week. So I had no excuse but to pull out the hearts and get cracking.

As I tend to do for my class, I had to make a few different styles so my members had choice. Some may call me crazy (I guess I'm in the right team), but I usually give them options and then let them put their own twist on my examples.

This first one uses layers of hearts, which I cut out on my big shot, using heart framelits. The owl is quick and easy to make, using the owl punch. I wanted my cute little owl to sparkle, but I had no glimmer paper. Instead I used dazzling details to give it the extra something I was after.

This next card uses all the same colours, but is a standard size card. I decided that I would make my own sentiment "Happy day of love", just to be a little different from the standard Happy Valentines Day, after all that's part of the fun of handmade. I used the Little Letters framelits to give this card a little dimension.

The final card is a Z fold card, my first in fact. I used my heart emboslits and heart punches to create my decorations. I also used the "You brighten my Day" stamp set for all the stamping in this one. This stamp set is one of the freebies available during Sale-a-bration this year, when you purchace $90 AUS of Stampin' Up! products. If you haven't had a chance to look at the Sale-a-bration catalogue yet, feel free to click the link on the side of my blog and have a look.

I hope you enjoy the blog hop.

Please note: The Hop will be live from 8pm EST Sunday 8th February 2015
