January 14, 2010

Issue #046 - THANK YOU for your ideas and suggestions during the gestation period of our new e-book, TEN VINTAGE VALENTINE GREETINGS TO MAKE. Darlene, we have your romantic "CD Jewel Case Card." Vicki, you got your "fusible web" card. Stan, we have your smaller card sizes!

May we say humbly that these are the best cards we've designed so far? We just love them. There's an easy fabric applique. There's a 3-D "tunnel card." There's an embossed heart made out of toilet paper. All the romantic touches!

Read all about it - then get your copy. You have an exclusive but fleeting DISCOUNT if you purchase before January 24!

Healthy Heart Valentines I
FREE Collage Sheet Download

Valentine's Day is supposed to make the romantic heart beat faster - just like a good sports workout. We took that idea to "heart" and searched out some unique sporting Valentines from the apogee of the Victorian era. Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like these images of lovers and cherubs engaged in golf, tennis, baseball, track and fencing!

Healthy Heart Valentines I omits archery - but we figured Cupid had that covered.

We'll be attending the Craft & Hobby Association convention on January 23, and we are psyched for it. We will be visiting with some of our old and new crafting friends, including Carol Duvall. If you plan on being there, please let us know!!

Happy New Year - and Cupid says, "Start making those Valentine cards!"
