Love Is In The Air Blog Hop - Day #1


Welcome to the Love Is In The Air Blog Hop!  
LoveBug Creations is pleased to be a part of this love fest and thanks Lisa Pontious for hosting the event! This is a two-day hop so you should have plenty of time to visit each station and leave some love comments! Two projects posted - one per day!

The lineup consists of some fine crafters who want to share their “love” with you!  The talent is overflowing on this one:
Mama LoveBug is presenting some “love cards” today; Kimi will be here tomorrow – so please stop back!  You also need to know that in the LoveBug house we have a ton of girls so creating girly Valentines here is a no-brainer!

Ok, love can be found in the air of any crafty designer, both professional and amateur alike.  I’m definitely in the amateur category, but I do have lots of fun with paper!  I discovered three things about my card mojo:

1. I adore making pocket cards.  I know every card maker probably has a favorite style, but since I started making these, I haven’t stopped.  I guess it’s the novelty, which fits my “whimsy”! 
2. I heart digi stamps – again once I discovered them (yah, I’m a late bloomer), I have been fascinated with the process of download to finished product. I love characters and the challenge of making them come to life.  La La Land has a wonderful assortment to have some fun moments with!
3. I enjoy tinkering with other forms of images, so I bought a Lalaloopsy paper doll book (they live in a colorful world) and colored, fussy cut, and glitzed those images to make some cards for friends and family.  Another different form for me is the amazing Paper Piecings by Nikki and I had to make a card from her darling Cupid Bear set plus I created some paper for this card from the collection as well.

So here’s a few of the “love is in the air” pocket cards in my crafting arsenal:
