Poki says,"I love all the patterns of the Love papers so I tried to use as many of them as possible. I especially liked cutting out the flowers and adding them to my page. On my layout I made a heart embellishment by looping some of the new twine ribbon. I like that this line has aqua in it so it can be used for other themes besides Valentine's day."

Suzy says, "The Love line is one of my favorites by American Crafts because my favorite colors are teal and bright pink. Add in a little kraft and you have simple perfection! I made this layout for my BFF Jamie Harper using pictures I had taken of her and her husband the last time they came out for a visit. I thought it would be fun to send it to her for Valentine’s Day (let’s hope she doesn’t look on here!). For the background of the page I opened two of the JustWrite Cards and used them behind the photos – I like the thicker paper they are made with and the size was perfect for photo mats. To draw attention to the main photo, I drew a big heart with pencil around it and then covered it with sewn on buttons. I used one of the stamps with hearts on it to add a subtle border around the elements."

"For my Love card, I wanted to create my own background paper and embellishment using the stamps and AC markers. I used the plain backsides of the paper and stamped the small heart border several times horizontally along the card. I then outlined the hearts in teal and colored them in with white. After I finished the pattern, I sprayed turquoise and white spray ink over it. I stamped the Love circle and then cut a scalloped circle to go behind it. I added some gel markers to it to make it more dimensional and add some shading. I LOVE markers, so the stamps and markers were super fun to use on these projects!"

Hope everyone has a "LOVE"ly weekend! Come back for more lovey dovey creations next week!
