Romantic Love Is in the Air

Today we’re highlighting ways to show your love to that special someone. Our loved ones expect something spectacular and from classic to whimsical to a little bit geeky, our team has covered a range of romantic relationships.

If you and your significant other share a scientific streak, the new Cute Chemists stamp set will bring happiness to both your lives — you when you create a card with a loved one in mind, and them when they open the envelope to reveal your handiwork. Jodi‘s put on her crafty lab coat and combined elements that produce a Nobel-worthy compound perfect for the season of love.

This classic take from Barbara features hearts, a color palette instantly recognizable as an ode to Valentine’s Day, and a sentimental phrase that will melt hearts and inspire smiles.

Celebrate Friends & Coworkers with Today’s Love Is in the Air Feature

Can you feel it? Love Is in the Air! Our January release is filled with ways to show your love so the rest of this week, we’re sharing ideas for making handmade Valentines for all your favorite people. Join us through Friday for projects featuring loads of heart.

Love Is in the Air for Friends & Coworkers

Your friends and coworkers are integral to getting through the day with your sanity and well-being intact — they deserve some recognition during this holiday of love! Today we’re featuring two projects that are sure to confirm your appreciation for these vital relationships.

Sassy Pants Love features funny and unexpected options for Valentine greetings. This collection is perfect for friendships in which laughter plays a vital role in maintaining a tight bond. Inge has paired sentiments from Sassy Pants Love with gorgeous heart-centered Die-namics and a modern Valentine color palette to create this chocolate treat + card combo.

The Hearts Entwined Die-namics has played a key role in both of our projects today — especially in this modern twist on a colorful art piece Stephanie has created. Layering multiple intricate die cuts results in such a striking dimensional look and this particular die is the perfect design for the task.

This irresistible dimensional design is packed with love.
