Cute Valentine Cards - swaps from Leadership

Happy Valentines Day!

Here are two wonderful swaps that I received when I went to the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference in Palm Springs last month.  The swapping was great at this event.  I was able to create 3 new beautiful display boards.  Watch for more Leadership swaps at a later date.

Valentines Day in two days...

This week, millions of romantics--and even some who aren't--will celebrate Valentine's Day, a special holiday set aside to express love for special people in our lives. While the history of this holiday is uncertain (it is named after at least one of several different St. Valentines), current traditions are certainly not! We send an estimated 1 billion cards on this holiday, to remind those around us that they are loved.

Special days such as Valentine's Day are a reminder of one of the central reasons Stampin' Up! exists--we believe in caring for others, and sharing that concern through heartfelt and handmade expressions of our love. With the flood of commercialism that has overtaken our society, handmade valentines are becoming the exception rather than the rule. This only means that hand-stamped cards become even more treasured by those who receive them.

Take time to send a handmade card to your love one.

Here's some Valentines Day cards that I've made in the past.  I'll share some more tomorrow as well as one that was published in a national magazine (yes - I've been published!)

Embrace Life - Sample #1

Embrace Life~This is such a beautiful set.  It's hard to make a card that isn't nice.  I really like this layout too.  I'm sure you'll find me using it more often.  Just a couple strips of beautiful "Ginger Blossom" Designer Paper and a bit of River Rock Double Stitched Ribbon.  Then add a watercolored flower for a simple and elegant focal point.

Last SAB Sample, "Merci"- by Michelle

Today I'm ending the week with one more SAB sample.  This one was done by my very first recruit - Michelle.  She's my artsy/fartsy demonstrator.  It doesn't surprise me that she picked the "Merci" set.  She always does fabulous cards and I love having her on my team.  Thanks Michelle!

Michelle

Have a great weekend.  Next week you can look forward to some Embrace Life samples.  I have a ton of them...you're gonna love 'em!

    SAB-"So Many Scallops" & "Define your Life" by Me

    This is another swap that I made.  I was inspired by a card a saw on SCS that used scraps.  I love it when I can use my Designer Paper scraps.  Besides "So Many Scallops" (which you can get free when you purchase $50 more ), I also used the "Define Your Life" stamp set.  I love this set!

    You can get the "Define Your Life" stamp set for FREE ($56 value including shipping/tax) - when you join my Stampin' Up! team now thru March 15th.  Plus a 2nd stamp set free from me (Ain't I nice?)  Plus get the starter kit for $40 off.  I'm still in disbelief over this awesome special!!  Attend one my Demonstrator Tryouts or find out more at this post.
