Now it's time for some lovable inspiration with Sweet Sentiments Valentine's! Here we have Romy's stunning card that features some gorgeous paper layers, pretty fussy cut elements and just the right amount of pretty pearl embellishments. The heartwarming images in Sweet Sentiments makes it the perfect collection for handmade Valentine's! Let Romy's amazing card capture your heart and inspire you to create a handmade card with Graphic 45 for someone special in your life! Here is what Romy had to say about this elegant work of art!

"I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day, but thus far I never had ‘my someone special’ to give a card to on Valentine’s Day. This year will be the first year that I get to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend and of course I just had to create him a special card. The Sweet Sentiments collection is just perfect for making something beautiful for your special someone. I had lots of fun cutting out the sweet cherub, hearts and butterflies to make this romantic card." -Romy

Next up are these gorgeous vintage-inspired ATCs by Olga that also feature our Sweet Sentiments collection. Creating little Valentine's ATCs like these are so fun and easy. It's also a great project that the whole family can enjoy. Sweet Sentiments offers endless possibilities for bright and beautiful ATCs. You can see how Olga added a few gorgeous fussy cut elements and Chipboard Die Cut pieces to these ATCs to give them added dimension and color. Inking the edges of the ATCs and Chipboard Die-Cut pieces is also a great technique to give your creation a nice antique look. These sweet ATCs are bound with some simple twine and a Sweet Sentiments Chipboard Die-Cut button to add to the vintage look. These amazing creations look like a stack of love letters from times gone by. Let it inspire you to create your own ATCs this Valentine's Day with Sweet Sentiments!

Congratulations to today's mystery winner!

Very nice! Thank you!!

I think it's my name they meant to put in those blank spots. Beautiful projects today. I love the valentine card.

I just decided to give ATCs a try and these are great ideas. Also I do not see a name of a winner up above. There is just a blank line where the winners name should be.

Beautiful ♥ But why would someone post and not add their name?

So sweet!
