Valentine Cards

I love Valentine's Day! I love the hearts, the sweet sayings of love...it is such a fun holiday to decorate for and so many fun things to make! This year, I made some small 3x4 Valentine's Day cards for my family using this and this fabulous die-cut backgrounds kit from Kerri Bradford. I love them! I had to manipulate the size of these a bit to be 3x4, but she has since come out with 3x4 kits that are amazing! You can find them here and here. I have die-cut so many of them to use as cards in my Project Life album! (Which I hope to get going on and posting soon!)

I die-cut all the card fronts with white cardstock and adhered them to different shades of pink cardstock. I then die-cut hearts in pinks and aquas and just played around with each card. It was so fun!

 
They are all a bit different and I love that!
I also wanted to share that Kerri is having a sale this week at her site. Something new on sale every day!! Here is the schedule and you can always check things out on her blog here.
Some great kits that you can get at great prices!! Happy soon-to-be Valentine's Day!
