Valentine Theme

Happy Wednesday! For today's post, I have Valentine/Love Inspired Theme projects for you. Usually when Valentine is mentioned or marketed, the first thing that comes to mind is romantic love, spouse, partner, etc and they tend to forget that there are many singles out there. So my projects are in honor of all the singles out there. Hey, they need love too :D

I decided to show two completely different methods you can use for your projects. Of course these projects were inspired by the recipients and they have completely different tastes but I wanted to show you that Valentine inst only about Pink and Red. I did, however, keep a little of me in there and used a touch of Paris. I find the whole theme of Paris to be very romantic and hopeful.  

Picture 1: "Friendship Inspired with a touch of Paris"

Picture 2: A2 Size Card
Flirty Anya from the Greeting Farm
Picture 3:  As you can see this card is very Valentine Inspired with the reds and pinks. 

I will be playing with:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Photo Inspiration
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes + Flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Love Is In the Air
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Love Is In the Air
Paper Play Challenges - Stamp It Out

Picture 4: Bookmark Tag
30's Lylah from Tickled Pink Stamps

Picture 5: This tag/bookmark is vintage inspired. I have been playing around with that method because I like the look of it for certain items.
This is also the first time I try making a rosette. They are simple to make but a pain to assemble. Sooo its a toss up.

I will be playing along with:
Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge - Vintage
Jitterbugging Challenge - Non Traditional Valentine

Thanks for stopping by/commenting!!

Hi Jess! Cute, cute projects, girl! Love the colors on the Anya card and the Parisian influenced tag is GORGEOUS! Thank you so much for having me as the guest designer. Wish I had more time to finish up the box I was working on, but my grandson decided he was ready to be born and I've been camped out at the hospital since Tuesday.
