So Beary sweet Card for Valentines using PCW file

Today is my first regular post back as part of the design team at Paper Crafting World .  I am very excited to be back designing with this talented bunch of ladies.
For my project this week I created a card using one of Melin's adorable little bears.  
I colored the digi using my Copic Markers.  
Colors used #37, E33, E31, E01, 100, R29, R27, RV00, RV02 and RV04.  

I layered 2 layers of valentine paper on my card base which is 6 x 12.  The digi was trimmed and matted on red cardstock.  The corners are punched with an EK Success punch.  I added a felt heart embellishment, gems, and ribbon from Michaels.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  
Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun creating your Valentines for all your sweeties.

Lots of Love Blog Hop with My Paper Crafting

Welcome to the Lots of love blog hop. I am so excited to be a part of this blog hop today.  I have been taking a break from Blog Design teams for a little over 6 months.  I am thrilled to be rejoining  Melin and the My Paper Crafting designers again.  After the blog hop I will be posting for the team every other Tuesday starting this next week. So on with the blog hop.   

We are so glad you have joined us today! There are only 8 stops along the way. So this will be a quick and inspiring hop for your Valentine's day crafting. If you came from  Charlotte's Blog  A Little Bit of Detail  then you are in the right place. The hop starts at so be sure to head over there and catch every stop along the way.  If you get lost you can always return to for a list of all the hop participants. 

Here is my project a "Beary Sweet"  Valentine layout.   I created a double page layout using these adorable bears, hearts and candy from Paper Crafting World  and then added a few cuts from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.  I chalked the edges, used a doily and some heart rhinestones.  Paper was from my stash.  I pop dotted the flag, banner and layered heart in top corner.

Back to School Mini book Class

Wow I just found this post and realized it was never completed.  This is a class I taught several months ago.  I used a lot of Glimmer Mist, stamps, stencils,  Cricut diecuts, 
twine, ribbon  and embellishments.  
The rosette on the front cover was made using the Tim Holtz rosette dies and the Graphic 45 see through windows were filled with beads, buttons, and paper clips.
