Kristina,
Love your year in cards class and your finally Friday videos. What adhesive do you use? It looks really easy to apply.

Your cards are beautiful, Kristina!

For the card background, what type of cardstock do you recommend? I have a lot of kraft cardstock, but my other colors are all textured. It looks like you are using smooth cardstock. Is there a brand that you like to use?

Thanks!

lachilles, I use Tombow Mono adhesive. Here it is in the TwoPeas store.

aJerseyGirl, the cardstock I used on this month's cards was from Stampin Up. I would also recommend Hero Arts' new layering papers. They aren't textured and come in super fun colors. Plus, they're one-sided, so they're perfect for cards (white on the opposite side so it's good for card bases--the inside of the card would be white). Here they are in the TwoPeas store.

And to everyone else, keep the cards coming! They look awesome!

This was a lot of fun to make. I am pretty new to cardmaking and I am finding that it is a great way to use up scraps leftover from layouts.

Just posted my very first card!! Now if only I could figure out how to link my card to a message posted in this forum.

Kristina, thanks for all your hard work, helpful hints, and inspiration. Just found these classes a few weeks ago even though I've been loving your videos on YouTube.

Can't wait for next month's class.

I've been here at Peas for 7+ years and can you believe I've only JUST started doing the challenges and classes? What took me so long?

Anyway, I am looking forward to doing this one! I just uploaded my first card. Do we just check here each month for the next card theme?

Hi all! Wow, you guys are doing awesome!

For those wondering about adding links to your message board post, just click on "URL" in the Insert Peacode area when you type your message. Then just follow the instructions that pop up.

And yes, this is the board you can check for next month's class. Each class goes live on the 15th of each month.

Keep it up, guys! You're cards are amazing!

Since I am waiting for my heart punch I only did one of the cards.
The text is in swedish and says [with love]

I hope it's not too late to join. This Valentine's Day card was made for my daughter Sophie. Sophie loves our dogs so this Mo Manning image was a perfect choice to use in a card that celebrates love. Inside is the sentiment "Thinking of You Always Makes Me Smile"
