Valentine’s Day is just a week away! Yesterday I shared some of the cards I’ve made this year. Have you mailed your Valentine cards? There’s still time to make someone smile and let them know you’re thinking of them! I have a lot of inspiration for you today with a look back at some of the Valentine’s I’ve made over the years. You can adapt these ideas using whatever Designer Series Paper, dies, punches, sentiments you have. *Click on the image to view the original post.
(The first 4 images are cards from this year starting with yesterday’s post.)
Have a great day!

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Love Notes Framelits Dies from the Sending Love Suite featured on pages 14 in the catalog. I made several projects today using these dies and photos.
These photos are of my daughter’s cat, Storm. Ariane rescued her and 4 of her brothers and sisters from a storm drain. They were frostbitten and needed to be bottle fed. We found homes for the other 4 kittens but Storm and Ariane had bonded. For 6 years this cat slept with her, sat on her lap while she worked on her computer, and followed her around like a puppy dog. Storm even waited outside the bathroom door while she showered! I don’t know who misses my daughter more, the cat or me! I’m sending this card, picture frame, and thank you notes in her Valentine’s Day care package.
I love photography as much as I love stamping! This Valentine card and coordinating envelope were quick & easy to make using the Love Notes Framelits Dies and Sending Love Stamp Set. I purchased this set as a bundle and saved 10%.
Look at all these dies…14 of them! I love the mini envelope die! You can even remove the little note from inside the envelope. How adorable! I wanted it to look like Storm was bringing the note to her.
I cut the die from the Sending Love Glassine Sheets. The note was stamped on Blushing Bride cardstock with Sweet Sugarplum ink. The colors match Storm’s cute little nose and ears! I used glue dots to adhere the envelope. I even stamped the back of the envelope and added a die cut heart.
I purchased the cute little silver picture frame at the Dollar Store! (I certainly didn’t break the bank on this gift!) I stamped the sentiment and then die cut the cluster of hearts from the set and attached it to the picture frame with 2 mini glue dots. Easy does it!
My daughter’s favorite color is purple and I was so excited when I found purple wrapped KitKat candy! The perfect gift from her kitty!
I always make my daughter’s thank you cards and she sent out the last of her thank you notes after Christmas. I used some more photos of her cat and made these thank you notes using the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 note cards & envelopes for $6.00…I think that’s the best deal in the catalog! I use them all the time for thank you notes! I printed the 2 x 3 photos at CVS. I got 4 per sheet for just 35 cents!
I used the Falling Petals Embossing Folder to emboss the front of the card. I couldn’t decide which I liked better for the mini envelope… smoky slate or blushing bride. What do you think? I stamped the thanks from Suite Sentiments and wrapped the mini envelope with black baker’s twine. I love these stinkin’ cute mini envelopes with removable notes! This card would be great for our cat sitter too!
Here’s a few more ideas showcasing the Love Notes Framelits Dies and Sending Love Stamp Set. I made these 3 x 3 notes at the Stampin’ Up! convention back in November.
