Make | Valentine Card Trio

Valentine Card Trio using Project Life cards | Blackbird Darlin

I had no idea when I ordered my first Project Life kit just how many repeat cards were gonna be in that thing. (Please tell me I’m not the only one that was shocked at the box size) The Kraft edition has tons of pink and lovey themed ones, so I couldn’t help but make a few cards with these…cards!

Card | "Unforgettable Love" | Blackbird DarlinCard | "To-From" | Blackbird Darlin

YES, those are (heart) shaped brads. I mean, how many years have those been sitting in my stash?! We’re not going to even talk about it.

I had to put some polka dot washi tape on there to trend it up, naturally. A Citrus Twist word stamp for the “unforgettable” and a Studio Calico alphabet stamp set for the initials added a little bit extra. The label on the banner card is from the roll of tape I found at the Oh Hello Friend booth at Urban Craft Uprising. No just sitting in the stash not getting used for you, oh noooo!

It should be noted that I totally used the wrong kind of ink for stamping on that tape, but I just went with it.

Card | Hello Love | Blackbird Darlin

Oh hello, love! Even more brad action if you can believe it. AND another label from my tape roll. I trimmed around this one too, since I wanted to keep with the clean look.

Not even sure why I had to mention that since I always want a “clean” look on everything. Alright, now you guys go have some fun with the piles of PL cards I know you’ve got stashed away!

Supplies Used: journaling cards (Becky Higgins Kraft Project Life kit), “unforgettable” stamp (Citrus Twist January PL kit), alphabet stamps (Studio Calico), woodgrain cards (LCI Paper), masking tape (Oh Hello Friend), washi tape, silver brads, silver heart brads

Make | 8×8 Layout – Love

8x8 Layout | Love | Blackbird Darlin

I don’t care what anybody says, I love Valentine’s Day.

Nine times out of ten for me, absolutely nothing happens. Hell, I’m not even that romantic of a person. I just dig on the fact that everything in the stores is pink and pretty for a few weeks, and there’s encouragement to exchange pretty paper things amongst loved ones.

My real fondness though comes from the subject of the above layout. I’ve been away from home for fourteen years, but my dad will sometimes still surprise me with goodies for V-day. How can you not love that?!
