Another Valentine!


Sorry this post is so late this evening. I have spent the entire day reorganizing my craft room! I decided to sort through my stuff and do a little bit of purging. Well, I guess I did a lot of purging! The only problem I am facing is...what to do with it? ;) I have a lot of fabulous things that would work well for scrapbooking but I am facing a delima because I don't ever scrapbook! Haha! Hmmm...what oh what could I do with it??? You may just hear the answer in the near future so stay tuned!

Anyway, I saw the OCC sketch challenge this morning and couldn't wait to play so I pulled a couple of my There She Goes sets and got to work! The sets I used were "Special Delivery" and "Year Round Sentiments". My original idea was to put the heart inside one of the round sentiments from the "Year Round Sentiments" set (since that's what it is made for" but after I had finished it, I thought it looked funny so I just kept the heart! I am still not sure exactly how I feel about this card but it is definitely growing on me! I for some reason feel like something is missing.

My card base is Very Vanilla and I layered on a piece of Close to Cocoa and a piece of Riding Hood Red. I ran the Riding Hood Red piece through my Big Shot with the Swiss Dots embossing folder because I felt like it needed some texture. I then pulled out a scrap piece of dsp from the SU! "Candy Lane" pack and layered it on another piece of Close to Cocoa card stock. I glued down a piece of Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon on top of the strip as well. Also, do you see those adorable little rhinestones in the corners of the dsp? Those are from the fabulous Taylor's Tiny Twinkles set that you can purchase from Taylored Expressions! I mentioned yesterday that there was a special on them! Here it is:

Also, in honor of CHA, Taylor has some fantastic specials going on over at Taylored Expressions! These specials will be going on from now until Wednesday, January 28th.

  • Free shipping on orders over $40 with coupon code FREESHIP0109 (all caps, no spaces)

Pretty sweet deal huh? Well make sure you stop by the store so that you can pick them up! They are amazing! I guess that is all for me tonight. I need to finish up my craft room before I go to bed. I will not feel complete until it's done! :D Enjoy the rest of your evening!
