Handmade Valentines with Laura Hager

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and the January Kit and extras are the perfect supplies to create quick and beautiful Valentines for the most special people in your life. Today we have Laura Hager to share two beautiful cards that she created with the new supplies!
 
Hi there, I’m Laura! I’m excited to be working with Elle’s Studio again and to show you my first project for 2018! This month, I’m using the January kit and add-ons to create two cute cards that are perfect for Valentines day!
 

 
Supplies | January 2018 Kit, Love You Die Cuts, Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers, Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, XOXO StampXOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
For my first card, I used a circle punch and the January Kit to create a grid using the circles. I use roller adhesive to attach the circles to the circle patterned paper from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection. I love adding die cuts for a few pops and texture to the page, and I chose a few from the January Kit and the Love You Die Cuts. There was a teal label in the Love You Die Cuts, so I added that and stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” to the label using the XOXO Stamp. I wanted a little more dimension, so I added a purple heart with foam adhesive to make it pop off the card a little.
 

 
For the second card, I wanted to try a different technique by using my sewing machine to add the pieces to the page. I used the “XO” paper from the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack and cut it down to 6″ x 4-1/2″ to create the front of the card. I found a “kind heart” tag from the January Kit and used the sewing machine to trace around the edge of the tag to add it to the front of the card. At this point, the card was just black, white, and gray, so I wanted to add some color, and I chose purple pennant from the January Kit. Next, I added some hearts from the Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers. The card still needed a little something, so I also added Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts to add some 3D elements to the card.
 

 
These cards are so easy and quick to make, but they look so cute! I’m so excited to send these out to friends for Valentine’s Day. Are you making cards with the January Kit and add-ons?
