With Valentine’s Day fast approaching what better occasion than to hand make something to give to your loved one, or perhaps just an extra special card oozing love and romance.  Of course us crafters don’t need Valentine’s Day to spread the crafting love, so we would like to see your makes that just depict the theme of love, a card, a bookmark, a scrapbook page or even home d├ęcor, so anything so long as it is handmade.  You can use any products you like to enter as long as it follows the theme for this week. We don’t have many rules but check them out in the side bar if you need to.
We give you two weeks to enter so that means the
CLOSING DATE IS 23rd February 2016
and the winners will be announced on 1st March 2016
The random winner (chosen by Random.org) will receive £5 worth of downloads of your choice from the digi store!
The winner and top 3 for Week 3 can be found at the bottom of this post.
So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

Julie - Today, I'm showcasing the new Sticks & Bones collection, (CD) , Digital Download) and showing how I use dies to make a card base.  Gather supplies, choose papers, dies, sentiment, card base:
Fold card base in 2 (fold is on the left in the picture below) overlap folded edge slightly with die, and run everything through a die cutting machine.  Assemble the layers, embellish as desired.  There are more pictures and instructions on my blog. 
Tanya  Hello there.  What a great week to make something love related especially with the release of the Lily Bug Love Collection last week.  I've gone for something different for me this week and made a digi scrapbook page.  I've been wanting to get back into scrapbooking for a while now, but whereas years ago when I used to cut things up and use original photos and put them in a book, this whole digi way of scrapbooking is new to me.  I've used a photo of my mum and dad which I've changed to black and white and embellished with papers, leaves and flowers and a sentiment all from the full Lily Bug Love collection available here on download or here on CD. More details can be found on my blog.
AnjieI have used the fabulous Sticks and Stones download collection to make this, which you can find HERE. Or in the CD format HERE. And of course you can buy all the images and other stuff separately. The cute image is HERE. I have printed one of the backing papers straight onto my card stock to make the stepper card. I then coloured the image in with my pens and fussy cut her out. I used lots and lots of pre-coloured animals and embellies and sat and fussy cut them as well. And finally I cut around some of the sentiments. I added them all onto the card with 3D foam to make them stand out more.

Fiona - I have used the fantastic Work and play 9 Love and Kisses cd for my All you need is love make, Its a fantastic cd great for all those wedding and valentine makes.  The image is called True Love the papers I used and the digital stamp are available on the cd. The flowers were created using a punch I have from the papers on the cd.
Jane – Hello! I just can’t get enough of the gorgeous new LILY BUG LOVE collection so that is what I have used to make my card again this week!  The image is the super cute LILY BUG LOVE SENDING LOVE (and she is!) who comes part of the collection but you can also purchase individually if you wish! Have a happy crafty day! xxx
Helen -  I've used elements from the new Lily Bug Love collection too - you can find it as a CD here and a download here.  I've used a pre-coloured digi, papers and a sentiment layered with black card.
Gail - I decided to use the very elegant Eden Collection available on CD Rom here or as a digital download here.  All the elements on this card from the Eden collection, including the sentiment, except for a little faux stitching with a fine liner pen. 
Monica- I`m enjoying going back to my favorite craft stuff and for this challenge I made a 3d hot air balloon, of course using papers, embellisments, sentiment and an adorable digi from Lily Bug Love.
Aunty Sue - Well with a Love in the challenge it just had to be our Little Love BUG - LILY BUG didnt it. I have used Lily Love Big Heart digital image available hereA sentiment from the download added to the heart and the papers are from Set 3 available here. Added a frame which you can get here. But you know if your getting them you will have to have the full CD/ Download available here

Audrey, who loves to color images with scenery chose Eden Window this time.  She can also be found in the Eden Collection Big Kahuna Download Bundle.  All the papers, embellies and bows I used are from Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses Download Collection.  I love all the Polkadoodles download collections because each time I explore them, I find something new!  This time I found the design sheets in the Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses Download Collection - they are sheets with all the elements needed to complete a card.  I used the border from one of the design sheets as well as the cut out hearts for my card.  I additionally used one of the ribbons, which I put a wooden heart on top - wooden heart colored with my air brush using Copic marker.  Finally, I cut one of the hearts and one for the flowers out of the design papers from Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses Download Collection for additional embellies and added Stickles to the flower.

Great makes from the DT again this week, wowee!
