Hey there, MME friends!! Lea here today with a personal and special project to share with you! It is Valentine's week, and as I thought about what I wanted to create...I realized that this will be the 15th Valentine's Day that my husband and I have been together.
Supplies: Journal Cards: Record It Charmed, Follow Your Heart, Just Splendid, Here is Happy, All Things Chalk; Decorative Chipboard: Market Street Ashbury Heights & Nob Hill, Jubilee Sherbet; Word & Alpha Stickers: Now & Then Mildred, Izzy, Milo & Dorothy; Enamel Shapes: Now & Then Mildred & Milo, Enamel Dots: Jubilee Wild Berry.
I started by pulling out journal cards, transparency overlays, chipboard shapes & stickers with phrases & images that make me think of my husband.
I used all of the different collections from 2014, and I had a ton of amazing items scattered all over my desk. I started out by pulling the journal cards that really said what I wanted, and layered them together in a way that they would have good dimension as I started embellishing them.
Once I pulled my favorites & had them arranged exactly as I wanted them, I went through the cards and stamped love themed sentiments on some of them. I didn't do this to every card...just ones that I felt could use a little extra statement.
I went through the stack of cards one more time, adding embellishments & alpha/word stickers to finish sentiments on other cards that I didn't include stamping. This made the booklet feel complete, so I punched a hole through the left corner of all the items & tied them together with ivory twine.
This Valentine card is not very traditional, but I'm super exited to give it to my husband! It says so many of the things that I don't think to say to him on a daily basis. It's also a good reminder that you don't have to use Valentine themed product to create a card for that special someone! Break into your vast stash of My Mind's Eye product & you will find a lot of items that can tell someone just how much you love them!
