For the love of Valentines

Hey Ruby Rock-it fans it's Teresa here to share a few Valentine projects that I made up to send to my family and friends to let them know how special they are this time of year.  Working at the Scrapbook store I heard so many of our guests say they didn't have Valentines but that shouldn't stop you from making something nice for coworkers or friends to say that you care... so with that in mind let's get started.  Oh and i got a little carried away with creating so grab a cup and relax....

First up is a page that i made to put in a frame for a wedding that is coming up this March.  They are two of the most amazing people and i wanted to make something special for them to put up in their new apartment.  I used the "Happy Days" Collection because all the little hearts in it really said LOVE to me.  And the rest just followed.  
I used the "Hoot", "Bouquet" and "Captured Moments" to make the layered base for my page and then i added the "3D Stickers", the "Die Cuts" and a few of the "Droplets" to finish it.  It was super fun to make all the little groupings around the photo to make it really pretty for them.
Here you can see all the pretty colors in the papers and the designs.  It's such a cute line and there are so many things that you can make with it.  So that is why i also did lots of cards to give with the leftovers that i had in the collection....
With the extra pieces in the set i cut apart the little 4x4 pieces in the "Patchwork" paper and made these cute little cards.  They are just nice sweet sentiments so they are Valentine inspired but don't have to give to someone that you are in love with exactly.  Just someone that you care about or are thinking of would still be fun to do and maybe give a special something you baked.
This one is my favorite.  I love the sentiment so i used the watering can and made that cute little sun behind it with a yellow circle and cut little triangles for the rays with the yellow printed paper. Adding the white matting helped to tie it all together and really made it pop.  How cute right?

This one went together really quick.  Both of the aqua pieces are part of the Patchwork paper and the tiny little hello is from the "Chit Chat" paper.  There is a ton of cute sayings on it and you could use it for so much.

And this one i made with one of the cute sayings matted in the center and popped up and the papers are also from the Patchwork paper.  The prints really go great together and it's printed on both sides so you have that many more ways to use it.

This one i made with the wood grain paper for the base and added some of the banner die cuts and the cute little birds. It's really bright and cute and super easy to make.
And my last card i fussy cut one of the bottles on the paper and layered on the heart and the bouquet of flowers from the 3D embellishments.  Then i cut a strip of the blue stripe to go behind it with some doilies that i cut from a die cut i had in my stash.  The sentiment is from the paper and it can go to someone that you want to say Thank you for just having a fun day with.  It's fun to send cards to people and I think we need to send more just to make the world a nicer place!!  So have fun creating and i hope i gave you a few ideas to inspire you to make something for someone you care about this holiday... and don't forget to get your kids involved.  It's always fun to do things as a family :)
