"J'ADORE" card by lauren bergold

if you want to make your most fabulous valentines ever, this month's kit, ♥LOVE NOTES♥ is definitely right for you!!! it's got every element you need: a perfect color palette featuring plenty of reds and pinks; lots of great love-themed papers; loads of hearts and flowers, etc. on the other hand, whoever said that sort of thing only works on valentines, eh? personally, i think this is one of the best "thinking of you" cards i've ever made!

for that matter, i believe i could have made these same supplies into a pretty great birthday or anniversary card... or a fun layout celebrating my adorable nieces and nephew... or a cool mini-book about paris! the best thing about any pixie kit, in my opinion, is not the "theme" at all, but the fact that every gorgeous product has been selected to work well with every other bit of the kit!!!

by now you'll have realized that my favorite technique is collage, and i have to confess that i've been known to spend quite a bit of time finding all the right "bits and bobs" to put on a card. with a pixie kit, miss kirsty has already done that for me!!! on this card you can see i have the best background and matting papers EVER ("sweet eiffel" and the "numers grid" by my mind's eye); a wonderful sentiment sticker from american crafts; two lengths of trim plus a few chipboard stickers from crate paper's random collection; and gems snipped from webster's pages "dazzle me" strips. every single bit of which was apre-made element!!! ok, yes, i did a little fussy-cutting from other papers in the kit (the hearts & doily) and i did some inking and distressing around the edges of my papers. but that's mostly because i just ENJOY doing those things!

if you've never worked with a kit before, all i can say is, "try it once"... because i'm confident that the amazing "jump start" to your creativity will convince you far better than i ever could!!! ♥
