Lawn Fawn and Glue Dots blog hop

Hello friends. Today I have a fun project to share. Since Valentine's day is right around the corner, I hope these projects would be inspiring to you and would get you into the "love" mood. 

Today Glue Dots Creative Makers are teaming up with Lawn Fawn Stamps for a special blog hop. I used this new stamp from LF as the basis of my projects....

Unfortunately it is sold out on their site. But check back with them soon to see when they can get it back in stock. 

 I made these "Happy Valentine's Day" cards using some new LF inks and the stamp set. To see the process for this card, please check out the Glue Dots blog here.

And because I love my blog followers, I have a special "extra" project for you today.
If you wanna check out how I made these treat envelopes via video, press play below...
