Design Inspiration:

from DT Diane A= 

[Theme #23 requirements: heart on the die-cut and "I love you" sentiment AND pink and white flowers combined with the gorgeous die-cuts hint of romance]

 Diane says the white layer above the pale pink base is flocked vellum!!! Isn't that dreamy?!!!!


DT member Willa Jean=

[Theme #23 requirements: multiple hearts and 'love' art installment AND combination of journaling, tag cluster, heart shape border and lots of red hints of happy life/couple...they love 'love'!]

Willa Jean and her husband had several trips in 2022 and she agreed that she was seeing 'love' with her love! Sweet!


from HQCB owner Becca S=

[Theme #23 requirements: 7 heart shapes and "I love you" sentiment AND colors, gold foil lips, XOXO for hugs and kisses hint of romance]

This was a great stash raid of treasures to layer and cluster together! My hubby is not a gushy romantic guy...a bit expressions of love are difficult for him such as cards, flowers, chocolate. His love language is food. Any time he buys me candy or soda or a donut without asking him too, it's a reminder to me that he thought of me while he was at the store or at the gas station! :) 

He will probably roll his eyes at this overly romantic display card but he realizes it's my love language to do these creative acts of expression, communicating through my paper-crafting!
