So let's take a look at the Design Team's creations this week - Valentine's Day is coming up so we asked everyone to make something for the season of Love - so check out all these great ideas for handmade Valentine cards and get making!

WENDY L - Hi everyone! Using Microsoft Word, I printed the Together Always - Love Always printable image at 75% transparency to give the look of no-line coloring. I added a circle to create a moon around the bunnies faces to highlight them and positioned a sentiment from the Love Always printable Sentiments big bundle in the moon. I colored everything with Copic Markers. Hope you like it as much as I did creating it!


Rose Hello Ladies, Hope you ready for another exciting new challenge, I am using the new release Wings of Love coloured Topper sheet 3 - Valentine with Love Birds Valentine - Wings of Love digital papers . This collection is so cute, adorable and fun to create. Today I like to share POCKET FULL OF LOVE - read and check out more what's inside the pocket on my blog.

Maritza: Hello my crafty friends, for this week love is in the air, I made a cute tag with a digital image Sweet as Candy - Love always, this papers are digital of Paper Heaven 3 Winnie Special Moments. I painted with colours pencils and phrase is of Lily Bug Love Stuff bundle kit


Christin - Hello! My project for this week is a heartshaped card with the cute Kitten with mail and lollipop. I think the kitten wants to say that love is all we need:).


Monika - Hi all you crafters! It's Monika here with another Valentine's card project. Today, I created a heart shaped shutter card and I used the most adorable digi stamps from Love Always collection. I coloured them in with alcohol markers and to make this Valentine's card special, I stayed with the blue colour, which is not traditional, however I think that's what makes that card even more special. For the background elements I used Just Lovely - Honeypie design papers. Have you ever created a shutter card? Happy crafting!



Maria - Hello everybody. To give you a bit of inspiration for the Challenge, I'm sharing this cute card, who can resist a bunny with a heart? I've used the Love you Bunches - Love always printable digital stamp which shows the cute bunny holding a bundle of hearts, which I coloured with watercolour inks. I used one of my heart dies to cut the image out and 3D mounted onto a background papers from using theLove Always Printable Papers Bundle 1. The sentiment is available from the Love Always Printable Sentiments big bundle which is a great set of sentiments for Love and this time of year. I used some of my washi tape and ribbon from my own stash to finish off the card. 




Lorena - Valentine's Day is coming and to celebrate it I have prepared a box of chocolates with this cute digi dog. I have also used printable decorated paper and a sentiment. The coloring is done with copics and colored pencils. I hope you like this project, I had lots of fun making it!


Wendy J - Hello everyone ! with the celebration of love only a week away the theme for today has to be Valentines so I have used the sweet Sweetheart Balloons digital stamp from the Honeypie Just Lovely collection, coloured with my alcohol markers. I've teamed the card with some of the beautiful papers from the Love birds - Wings of Love paper bundle. The sentiment is from the Love Always sentiment bundle. Just Lovely ! More details are over on my blog.



More great inspiration from the team this week - we hope we gave you lots of crafty ideas to use!

So let's take a look at the Design Team's creations this week! We asked the team to use this lovely Springtime colour palette...

Melanie - For this weeks project, the design team were asked to create for the theme of Spring Flowers. For my project I made a 5"x5" square card using patterned paper from the Zodiac big Kahuna bundle to create two matt layers. For the main feature of my card, I had to use the Spring Daisy Gnome digital image. I coloured the image using soft pastel colours using my Spectrum Noir markers which also matched the patterned paper I used. To finish the card off, I used some glossy accents over the word spring to give a glossy texture and I used my gelly roll white gel pen to add polkadots to the Gnome's hat. I hope I have inspired you to get creating some projects for Spring. Happy Crafting!

Jane – Hi everyone! My project this week looks forward to spring using the gorgeous DARLING BUDS - TULIP digi (she is also available in a clear stamp HERE) backed by images from the BLOOMS 5 TULIP FLOWER...




Catrin - Hi! todays card is 'Spring Flowers'. and I have used the stamp set 'Funky Rosy Posy' and 'Funck Borders' Clear stamp Set. Stmped with Momento Ink and coloured with Distress inks and fussy Cut to create a garden scene. The backing paper was created with Distress ink and the 'Polka Dots Mech Craft Stencil...

Martine - Hello everyone, Martine here with a springful card. Well... i would LOVE that it was spring! I don't like this weather at all ! I've made a easel card for you this time. I put some shiny papers on it and i used Surprise gifts for it...isn't she cute? Then i put some roll-up flowers on it and some little butterfly's. The card itself stucks behind a tiny envelop, with a cute little message in it. Well... see you next time.
Kim Stewart - For my Challenge project I created a slimline card. I had to get some Winnie time in and chose Winnie Daisy Dance Fairy for my card. I used scraps i had saved from other projects for my decorative paper selections. I added mulberry flowers in matching purple and lilac colours. Added glitter to her wings and all the flower centres. My sentiment comes from Winnie Daisy Fairy Sentiment bundle - Have a crafty Week!

Shruti - I've designed this fun fold card for the Spring Flowers theme using the color palette 🎨
I coloured this cute Gnome digistamp in pastel tones using brush pens, added some rhinestones for flowers and added cute little flowers on Gnome's cap just to go with the theme 😍 and the backing papers are from the same gnome collection here. Hope you all will like it.

Super inspiration from the team this week - we hope we gave you lots of crafty ideas to use!

Monika - Hi all crafters. It's Monika here with a super cute Valentine's card. Not every Valentine's card has to be pink and red, right? That's why I decided to experiment with colours and I made my Valentine's card blue, I simply could not resist. That super adorable bunny from 'Love You This Much' is just perfect for quick and unique Valentine's projects. For the background, I used a cutting die from my stash and the design paper from 'Just lovely - Honeypie ...'collection.
