Yep, can you believe it? I haven't blogged in so long, I haven't had the urge to do any paper crafting.
I slowed down during CHA and it's been really hard for me to get back in the grove!
I've been holding out on my journaling for Dyan Reaveley's new couture stamps, but, Valentines day is almost here so I had to give it a go with her older stamps and stencils :)
Her stuff is always fun, I hope you like this page, my first in Dyan's new journal.
The Inspiration Emporium theme this month is love, sweet love.
I've decided starting this year, to use it up, use as many embellishments, ribbon, paper etc. on my projects as a I can. I have SO MUCH stuff, I really need to start using it. For instance, the red heart doilies and rhinestone hearts I've used here. I gave my granddaughters and niece tons of patterned paper that I've been hoarding, they'll put it to good use.
Now, it's your turn, go to the IE blog and upload your lovely creation for your chance to win $50 in goodies of your choice!
