Love You (Paper Clip!)


Happy Tuesday! Is it really only Tuesday? It's my first full week back at work and it's like I've never been away: students stressing over exams, work that needs to be marked and more lessons that need to be planned. It's business as usual :)

It's also business as usual on A Passion for Papertrey as we've kicked off another year of challenges. For our new challenge we're looking forward to the next big occasion in the calendar for us card-makers: St Valentine's Day.

Never too early to create something for a loved one, right?

Love you

This design was totally inspired by some cool, heart-shaped paper clips I've been hoarding. I'm thinking that this card would be sweet to tuck into my guy's lunch sometime soon...after all, I don't need a dedicated day of the year to tell him how much he means to me (altogether now, awwwww!)

So why not play along with us? We'd love to see your own takes on Valentine's creations and share the inspiration :)

Right then, back to the book marking (it's my New Year's Resolution to keep on top of it all! So far, so good!)

Catch ya later!

I really really really love this Aimes, in fact it's the kinda Valentine's card I would so want to receive....instead I'll probably get something about 6ft tall with a Teddy holding a big red heart on it :| lol xxx

To start let me say you are doing fab with your new light box set up - really shows the dimension in this card. Talking of which, white - check, text - check, CAS - check, graphic - check, pop of colour - check! You didn't make this card for your guy, you made it for me LOL!

Pam Sparks said...

super cute! I've done some cards like this in the past... need to find them and case myself! Thanks for the inspiration!

Lynn said...

There you go again with my PTI linen plate. Love, love, love it and the three sweet hearts. Pure joy. I'm sure your guy will love it!

Jenny said...

I always visit your blog and say "I wish I'd thought of that!"
