I'm so glad I put this card and page display up, I love looking at the new creations while I'm working on something else. I used two giant thumb tacks, some SU rope twine, and binder clips, to make this inexpensive, and very useful card and page display.

Valentine scrapbook pages made for my swap

This is the 6x6 pages I made for my Valentines scrapbook page swap, I used pink passion card stock, 6"x6" for the base, I cut a 6"x2 1/2" piece of real red card stock, and used the scalloped trim border punch down one side, then I cut a 2"x 6" piece of the welcome neighbor DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, then I used whisper white card stock and the scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslits die from the occasions mini catalog. For page two I used real red card stock and the scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslits die, and the full size heart punch and whisper white card stock and put the white punched heart over the embosslits heart, then with so saffron card stock I punched out a wide oval, and a 1 1/4" circle, I stuck one end of the oval in the point part of the full heart punch and made a point for the bee's stinger. I punched two 1/4" circles and cut two strips for the antenna then I used the beautiful butterflies big shot die and vellum to make the wings, and I put the wings in an embossing folder and put them through the big shot. I used the basic black marker to put the stripes on the body of the bee, and his eyes, then I used a dauber and stampin pastels, for the rosie cheeks. I used the pretty in pink and real red and the heart to heart punch to make the three little hearts, and I used the signo gel pen to give the little bee a smile.

These pages are 12x12 valentine pages I made for my swap. I used close to cocoa for the 12x12 base, then a 8 1/2"x 10" piece of chocolate chip card stock, and two 1" x 10" strips of sending love specialty DSP, a very vanilla top note using the top note die and the big shot, I also cut 4 very vanilla scalloped heart of hearts embosslit, then I punched pretty in pink full hearts and layered them over the scalloped hearts. The letters are made with a cricut and pretty in pink and very vanilla card stock, I punched out some heart to heart hearts and placed them in different places on the page. The photo mats are very vanilla card stock, 4 of the mats are 4'x 6" and one is 3 1/2"x 4 1/2". The stamp set I used were Love You Much, and The More The Merrier.
