design team wednesday!

 Hi and happy Wednesday!
This is my first design team post ever and i'm super excited (and the teensiest bit nervous!) so stick with me and I'll try to keep the rambling down to a minimum. :)

I used Crate Paper's Paper Heart Collection for these valentine cards and treat cards. I'm not super big on Valentine's Day so this was kind of challenging for me. (I made the mistake of telling my husband I didn't like Valentine's nonsense when we started dating so now I'm stuck!)

My first card uses some patterned paper, a designer diecut, one of the sweet phrase stickers, and some seam binding inked up with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

This one has some paper, another diecut, one of the border stickers, and some seam binding died with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

The last card has this yummy text paper, some die cuts, border sticker, and baker's twine.

For the treat cards I cut my paper to 3 1/4" x 6" and scored it with a two inch fold over a treat bag and just stitched it closed. The border strips on the patterned paper worked really well to add a decorative edge with no extra punching or stickers required!

Love the cute little conversation heart diecuts!

 Love love love those scrabble tile diecuts!

Crushed Olive might be my absolute favorite Distress Ink color ever.

Well thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
