Valentine's Day Inspiration

Happy Friday bloggers! Gosh, this week seems to have zoomed past and we are all looking forward to the weekend already. Today we have some Valentine's Day inspiration, with only a week away, now is the time to start making those cards and gifts for loved ones. Valentine's Day doesn't just have to be for the men in our life but for anyone who means a lot to us and its important to tell them you love them as well.

So let's start with some papers......

Crate Paper Kiss Kiss Collection

This beautiful collection from Crate Paper will make beautiful backdrops for cards and scrapbook pages this Valentine's Day. Lots of beautiful hearts, dots and flowers in wonderful shades of pastel pink. Papers are 89p per sheet, so get yours quick before they sell out. Buy here

Next up is the Love & Friendship collection from Penny Black....

This super adorable collection from Penny Black features dies and stamps with some cute creatures and lovely sentiments perfect for cardmaking or finishing tags on gifts. The dies feature a range of sentiments and heart imagery, ideal for making cards. Buy here

One of my favourite die-cutting and stamp brands is Taylored Expressions who have a lovely range of Valentine's dies and stamp sets ready to put on your cards and gift tags.

Taylored Expressions

Taylored Expressions also feature a die and stamp set combination so you can perfectly match your die to the stamp set and vice versa. Buy here

Check out Caz's example below using the Taylored Expressions stamps and dies and also the Crate Paper Kiss Kiss Collection

Next up is a lovely Sizzix die cut from designer Rachael Bright....

The picture above shows you all the die cuts included in the set so you are equipped with everything to make the treat bag. Caz made a sample for the shop also using some Taylored Expressions stamps as well, it just shows you how you can make a beautiful gift, wrapped in cellophane to give to a loved one. Buy here

Our final bit of inspiration is Cricut Vinyl and Window Cling.....

Cricut Vinyl (Berry) & Cricut Window Cling (Red)

These are products that you can really have fun with and stretch the imagination. Use Cricut Window Cling to cut out some hearts, floruishes or other Valentine's images and make your own Valentine's scene on a window or glass accessory. This is a fab project to get the kids involved with and would look lovely on a Kitchen window. Also available is Cricut Vinyl which can be applied to lots of gift like items, including mugs, phone and ipad covers, hardware or perhaps to adhere to the wall. Buy here

Well we hope this has got you inspired to craft for Valentine's Day, no matter how big or small you make the project.
