Happy Valentine's Day!

I love Valentine's Day. It's one of my favorite holidays of the year. So fun and festive. Not a lot of work, though, which is nice. I am going to make our annual special dinner. Ryan, Fran and I are having filet mignon, crab cakes and chocolate fondue (for dessert).

Here are some Valentines that I made recently using Crate Paper's DIY Shop line. Crate has some gorgeous Valentine's lines, but I wanted to make something with a different color palette. There are several gold embellishments with the line, so I decided to use gold and cream as my predominant colors.

  I spritzed the background with gold mist and added a gold doily on this one.

Here, I layered some die cuts and added that fun clothespin.

 I love the gold chevron tag! I added a gold flower die cut and some Thickers to round out this one.

It's fun to find other lines that work so well for different holidays!As a matter of fact, that gold flower does resemble a poinsettia. Maybe I could use it for a Christmas card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy Valentine's Day!
