Last of the Valentine's Stuff

Happy Saturday. Hope you had a great week. Just another busy one here. I'm STILL fighting a respiratory thing. Spring can't get here soon enough. I am so sick of being sick!! I just want to open up all of the windows and get rid of germs.

I have a couple of last Valentines-y things to share today. This first layout is the one I did for Crate's Creative Weekly feature this week. We focused on RED.

 I used a combination of Fourteen and DIY Shop on this one. It's about the fondue we have every Valentine's Day. MMMM. I added some die cuts and little bits of chipboard. The tag was created on my Silhouette.
 I added some wood veneers, too. I love the little chevron shaped ones.
I love the look of cream and red together, so I kept the color palette simple. The photos also played a role in carrying the color through the page. (And on a side note, these were the first pictures I printed with my new Selphy printer. I am in love! I've never had luck printing pics at home and these turn out perfect. If you are looking for a home photo printer I can't say enough about this one!)

Finally, just a quick card. I kept this simple and bold.

 I started with some charcoal cardstock and layered a piece of velum over it. Then, I cut thin strips of Studio Calico paper and more velum and stitched them together along the bottom.
The heart was cut from some Echo Park paper. I added an EP sticker and some gems to top it off.

Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
