Love Is in the Air — Friends & Coworkers

Can you feel it? Love Is in the Air! Our January Release is filled with ways to show your love, so this week we're sharing some inspiring ideas for crafting thoughtful Valentines for your favorite people. Join us through Sunday for projects with lots of heart ❤️.

Love Is in the Air — Friends & Coworkers

We spend a lot of time with our coworkers — want to show your friends and colleagues that you love and appreciate them? Today Stephanie has a fun duo that does just that.

Welcome to day two of Love Is in the Air. Today we're focusing on friends and coworkers, and staying with yesterday's idea, I decided to create a Valentine-themed card to coordinate with a gift that can be used throughout the year.

One of my favorite things to give friends is a hand-stitched bookmark. I love to read and it makes me so happy to create something they can use in their own books that reminds them of our friendship every time they open the pages. I also think they're a great gift for co-workers because they are pretty useful (even if they don't read a lot) and it's a great gift for Valentine's Day since it's pretty universal and not too lovey-dovey. ;)

I die cut the Cross-Stitch Bookmark from white card stock and used one of our downloadable patterns to color in the cactus design with Copic markers. I used coordinating thread and stitched the design onto the bookmark. I always like to back them with white card stock and then I add a coordinating card stock color behind and cut it with my trimmer so it's slightly larger before finishing the bookmark with a colored tassel that matches the design.

I used the new Let's Stick Together stamp set to create a coordinating card — this one being specifically for a friend. Since you probably wouldn't tell a coworker that you loved them, you can swap out the love part for a more generic sentiment like hello.

Now we have a card perfect for Valentine's Day to coordinate with our gift that works for any time of the year!
