Quick and Easy Valentine's! .... and a..... GIVE-AWAY!!

Most of us crafters that have kids in school, work, and have family and friends usually need to make quite a few Valentine's. The other day when I was at Robert's I saw a 12x12 page with 12 cute different little valentine pictures on it. So I got an idea in my head that that page could be made into 12 easy valentine's and guess what??? It worked! All I did is cute out the rectangles, find matching solid colors to match from my scraps and add just one kind of embellishment to each card. In some of them I put cute little sayings such as (hugs and "fishes", "pugs" and kisses, "Whooo" do you love?, and in the mooooo-d for love) then I put them together. Whole project took about an hour and I have 12 valentine's for teachers, friends and family!

When I thought of this idea, I got a good question to ask all of my crafty friends.

~ What is the ONE item at the craft store, local scrapbook store or online paper crafting web-site that is your absolute FAVORITE, the ONE item that you have a million of but when you go shopping you can't help but look and purchase more???

Mine is BUTTONS!!!!

The drawing is for a green Paper Shapers corneradorner, (corner rounder punch). Leave a comment about the question above and I will randomly draw a name next Friday, Feb. 11th. Make sure that you also comment on the (TOOL HELP post) to be entered for the small prize there!

Thanks and have a GREAT weekend!
