the january pixie dust paperie kit, ♥LOVE NOTES♥ is great for making sooooooo much more than valentines. having said that, if you'd like to make some completely FABULOUS ones, you can do that in a snap. see?!
i made all six of these mini-cards... (which will indeed serve as valentines for my nieces and nephews!) ...in about an hour, using nothing but cardstock, paper and my trusty dymo labeler. it really, REALLY helped that pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe packed this kit with the most gorgeous new love-themed papers from my mind's eye, american crafts, pink paislee and crate paper, and that nearly every sheet is double-sided-- giving me twice as many patterns with which to work.
the three layered heart is cut using the very first cuttlebug die i ever bought when i got my machine, yet it's still one of my favorites! mostly because, by cutting it just once from four or five different patterns, i can get a huge variety of mix-n-match looks from the same set up!
i ALWAYS love the smudgy look on the edges of my pieces, but honestly, this time i discovered at the very last minute that i didn't have any maroon dymo tape from which to punch my labels, and the black looked a little stark until i spread a bit of that color--in the form of ink, and also black machine stitching--throughout my design. so now you know my one of my tricks!!! ;)
here's another secret for you: i'm planning to get a friend who is unknown to the children in question to sign these "guess who"! i'm hoping to create a fun little mystery, but i'm not so sure it'll be successful; not only are they *VERY* smart... they've also seen quite a lot of my work!!! ♥♥♥
