Valentine Journal Cards


Okay. It is freezing today! I know this isn't Facebook, so I shouldn't be stating the obvious, lol, but it's cold! I've got a table top heater on night next to me to prevent my fingers from freezing off. Is it cold where you are? Yes, I have the heat on in my house too, but I just can't seem to warm up. The warmest it is supposed to get is 10. 10 measly degrees. Believe me when I say this, I have already begun to count down until Spring.  55 days to go!



So, I've been feeling crafty lately. Yay! It feels so good to have that creative mojo back.  If you're a scrapbooker or a crafter, there is probably a good chance that you have many supplies that go unused. Don't be shy, I know you do.  Mine weakness is stamps. They are just so stinkin cute that I can't resist buying them.  But guess what? I never use them. Out of the 100 stamps and stamp sets I have, I probably haven't used 99.9% of them; not even once.  Well, with money being tight and me not really being able to buy any new craft stuff (Like I need anymore anyway….) I decided to challenge myself and actually use my stamps. With valentines day just around the corner and me trying to scrapbook more, I decided to make some Valentine journal cards.




I was impressed with myself, I'm not a stamper…I'm just a stamp collector, but I was impressed with how these turned out. It actually made me want to use my stamps more.




This one is my favorite one out of the bunch. Isn't it cute? You know what the best part of making these Valentine journal cards was? I used up my scrap paper! I'm a scrap paper collector too....don't judge. *smile*
