Mahlin says, "When scrapbooking about love I often go to song lyrics. There are so many songs out there to describe all those feelings you have trouble finding the words for. I wanted this layout to have a lot of white on it, but to get that kick of color I layered my patterned papers a couple of times. White, aqua and red together is my new favorite color combination!"

"I tried to make up for my poor card making skills by making a cute pleated heart! All the papers from the Love collection goes so well together - they're so easy to match!"

Melanie says, "I‘ve always wanted to do a layout about our dog’s birthday being February 14th. She’s been such a great friend and companion through the years, and we love her so much. My sons get a great kick out of her being a Valentine’s dog, and so this layout came about easily - it was a perfect theme to scrap with the beautiful Love line. And yay, I got to use some pink!"

AC Love card  (1 of 1)
Supplies: 4x6 Cards & Envelopes (64001) - JustWrite, 8 ½x11 White Cardstock (71273) - AC Cardstock, Blackberry Clear Stamps (59203) - Enchanted, Endless (42164) - Remarks, Aqua Gingham Ribbon (89281) - Ribbon, Cranberry (62617) - Stamp Markers, Cranberry (59517) - Pigment Ink, Black (59500) - Pigment Ink, Foam Dots (61709) - This to That, Other: Spellbinders label die

"I love the ‘JustWrite’ cards a ton. They’re seriously awesome for a quick card and can be altered and adapted to fit any occasion. I used a card from the Love collection for this one, stamped the sentiment from the ‘Enchanted’ stamp set onto white cardstock (love this quote - so true!) using the Cranberry stamp marker for the ‘Love’ word, and carefully inked the rest with my black stamp pad. I then ran the stamped image through my Big Shot with a Spellbinders label die, inked the edges with cranberry ink and added a ribbon bow. I adhered it to the card with dimensional dots, and my card was finished in about 15 minutes!"

Stick around for a fabulous Valentine's tutorial tomorrow!
