Give Love - Make a Valentine Round Up

Like almost everyone, I have a love-hate relationship with Valentine's Day.  The hate turned more into love when I realized that Valentine's Day is a superior card-making opportunity, and that the products available are probably the cutest of the year! (Like Sweetness from Pink Paislee)

I wanted to round up some Valentine inspiration (and printables) from some of my favorite sources on the web.  Please check below the photos for the credits!  The images are not mine.  Please visit the individual websites!  :) 

 Five fun ideas from Stamp with Heather!
From L-R, top to bottom
I have to say, I love this blog.  Heather is a Stampin' Up representative and she does amazing work. I have been following her blog for at least two years now and I always find inspiration there.  She also does step by step instructions and YouTube videos!  Definitely check out her website

Now that you're inspired, print up some pretty tags, papers, and images to work with.  I'm not posting pics here, but please check out these pretty free printables.

This Graphics Fairy ornate frame in three colors can be used to hold a sweet saying.  I would love to dress up this lady from Graphics Fairy in rhinestones and put her on a fabulous card.  Free Pretty Things for You (FPTFY) offers adorable kittens with yarn gift tags that can definitely accompany your Valentine cupcakes to school.  Write a little note on these tiny tags from FPTFY.  These gorgeous FPTFY images are ready to be stamped, glittered, and added to cards for your friends and loved ones.

That about wraps up the love.  I hope you take advantage of the card-making and have fun this Valentine's Day.
