Alota Valentines



Nancy at Windstar Creations had done these adorable pocket envelopes to go with her Cards 4 Kids valentines. She was kind enough to send me directions and I had to try one, which led to three. Thank you, Nancy. They're super easy to do, so I made them and then copied her idea of putting valentines in them with the tab on the top. I did my valentines with the set I ordered from Alota Rubber Stamps, "Valentine Cuties." I love this set. The DP and hearts are from the SU! bundle which included a great Valentine stamp set, the 3-heart punch, and the DP. These are for 3 of my 8 grandchildren. I need to get more done, but I'm waiting on my robot images to arrive to do a few up with those. They are also from ARS, and I'll post those when I get them done. ARS also has some new sets that are beautiful and versatile so check them out if you get a chance. Thanks so much for looking. Loved all the cards I took the time to look at today. Flourishes also had some beauties to showcase. So much eye candy, and so inspirational! Hope you have a lovely week-end, wherever you are.

Karen, so glad I visited your blog tonight. These are adorable. Those envelopes are also really sweet. They really picked my spirits up. I have been working and do not see much light at the end of the tunnel. Think I'm going to throw together a few cards though. Haven't posted to my blog for awhile either. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
