    Valentine’s Day Projects by Guest Designer Lynn Stevens

    Lynn was a Design Team Member for us many moons ago, and I was pleased as punch that she was free (on a moment’s notice, no less) to make artwork from the February Kit!

    Oh my… Lynn made FIVE adorable valentines! I’ve picked out a set (which I’m counting as just one of the 5) to highlight here (and another valentine is shown down in the Giveaway section). But see Lynn’s blog post for pics of ALL FIVE!

    See the 2 hearts above? Sooo cute! Like miniature, fancy candy boxes! Lynn used Red Suede Paper as the base layer, with Dresden around the edges and images from the 2 Collage Sheets over rosettes made from the My Valentine Polka Dot 12×12 Paper Set (and i love how she ran some of the Dresden through her embossing machine to krinkle it up with she pleated the rosettes)! See the supply list for just these hearts.

    Super job, Lynn! I love what you’ve made! Read more (and see more photos of all the projects) on Lynn’s blog post.

     
    What is NEW today?

    New and back in stock items… many are filigree or lacy things, like those adorable doilies. Could be pretty on a valentine… ! See all the items here (more than the previews below — including 2 new paper lace sets shown in the Giveaway)!

     
    Hooray for the Kitty Accordion Book Giveaway!

    Wow! This Kitty Accordion Book and Envelope, also by Lynn, is so sweet (and so tiny — I think you can just decipher from her thumbnail in that photo at left how tiny this little book is)!

    Beside the 2 new Tiny Lace Borders (also shown below), I love the images from the Kitty Cat Valentines Collage Sheet that Lynn chose!
