Love is in the air




Hello everyone and Welcome to Love is in the Air Blog Hop!
Valentine’s Day has to be one of my favorite holidays next to Christmas and Thanksgiving. I love the d├ęcor, flowers, candy, balloons, and stuffed animals and let’s not forget the cheesy cards! Valentine’s Day is that one special day we can show extra love and appreciation to all of those special people we have in our lives.  To celebrate Valentines Day, I have a group of talented designers that have created their own special project to showcase. 
We hope you enjoy hopping away and as always we hope to inspire you!

Lluvia will be giving away a grand prize, all you have to do is comment on each of the designer’s blog! Winner will be picked on 2/5, please leave your email address!


If you came from Elecia you are in the right direction!


For my project I made a heart shaped card. It doesn't stand up on it's own and I don't have anything to stand it up with so I took a picture flat. The love birds are a pattern from Scrappy Dew and the rose is a paper rose I made from Scraptastical Kreations.



Now on to Melisa -

For my project I made a 2 page hybrid layout using digital paper from Hot Berry Designs and paper piecings from Scrappy Dew. The digital paper is from the paper pack Winter Wishes II. I used pieces from 3 different Scrappy Dew paper piecing sets to create the scene at the bottom of the page. The trees came from Trimming the tree, the pond came from Daddy Fishing (I made an outline to create snow around the pond) and the penguins are from Skating penguins. I made my own glitter paper for the shimmering ice by spraying Krylon Easy Tack on plain cardstock and sprinkling translucent blue glitter on top.
