    My Chocolate Valentine by Lora Mahaffey

    From Lora’s blog post:

    Yes, Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. It’s always been a holiday that catches me by surprise. Fortunately for moi, my husband knows exactly what to get me and it’s the same every year and it never gets old.

    A book and a box of chocolates.

    It’s the best.

    I look forward to it every year.

    If he doesn’t get it for me this year (he will) I will get it for myself!

    So when Alpha Stamps sent me the Victorian Ephemera Kit and that luscious chocolate-colored Dresden trim spilled out, well, that was it for me. It had to be a snarky chocolate valentine.

    Psst… check below in the Giveaway section for the snarkiness in this seemingly innocent project.

    Beside these highlights (above and below), here’s the full supply list. And be sure to visit Lora’s blog for more photos and a step-by-step tutorial (I love the hanging tassels Lora made from Stickles, hanging from the Dresden “curtain” — see the top of the photo at left.) Plus that collage sheet of La Bella Caroline Otero that Lora featured, shown at right, is part of the sale!

    Ah… there’s the full inside image!

    I’m including a Victorian Ephemera Kit and the Caroline Otero Collage Sheet in today’s Giveaway! (As the kit includes the pretty scrapbook papers, chocolate brown Dresden trims, and the chipboard tent card frame — that pretty much gives you all the supplies for recreating Lora’s project.)
