It's all about Love...

With Valentines Day just around the corner I figured I would start showing some totally simple, easy and adorable Valentine cards. Now if you get the kits from The embellishment studio then you are totally in luck because you have most of this stuff in your hot little hands. hehe I used products from the eclectic and hodge podge kits.

See how simple this card is. I just cut out an image from some pattern paper. In this case it's from Luxe designs. Placed it on my card then took the rub-ons from the Hodge Podge kit and picked out a few and added them to the Journaling cards. Cut up some white ball fringe and black heart lace and added that. Took a few small K and co cushion hearts and it was done. Totally easy and way cute.

Now this card is even simpler and it's totally cute. I took the green journaling card in the eclectic kit sanded the edges and added it to my Bazzill which is cut 8x6. I took the left over pink journaling card from the card above and tore out a heart shape and adhered it to the bottom right corner of my card. Took the rub-ons from the Hodge Podge kit and added a few sentiments to it. Then I cut about 3-4 inches of the white ball fringe and added it across the heart. Totally simple, fast and perfect for Valentines day.

Now that I got yall making Valentines. lol ok ok maybe I didn't get ya making them but if you are you for sure have to enter the contest going on at The embellishment studio. It's a totally simple contest and you could get one of the fab kits from The embellishment studio to design with and you even get to pick what ever month you like. How fab is that?
