Time to Create Cards

   This year, I am starting to document the little things that I do but with more journaling. I think I will make the Tracie Claiborne proud, I am scrappy with a story in mind. This page is about my mom and I getting together every January to create Valentine cards .

Supplies: pattern paper (American Crafts, Pink Paislee and Crate Paper), stickers (American Crafts, Elle's Studio, Studio Calico and Simple Stories), journaling cards (Project Life), washi tape (The Paper Studio and Doodlebug Designs), doily (Doodlebug Designs), tag (?), stamp (American Crafts), ink (Momento), dew drops ( The Robin's Nest), wood veneer (American Crafts), rub-on (Maya Road), marker (Faber-Castell) and pen (Project Life)

   Here are the close-ups. 
   Here are the close-ups. I love how this page came together. I got to use up that old Pink Paislee "Secret Crush" scraps that have been in my stash for about 3-4 years. 
 To make the tab on the journaling card I just used the envelope punch board. It makes the perfect tab every time.
 On a few of the hearts I cut the outer edge from the background paper. I then patched the opening from the back with a blue paper. To keep the hearts up once it was in the album I just popped them up with foam squares.
