Today, we have unique and incredible Valentine's Day inspiration from Olga Helwein and Pam Bray! You will leave so inspired - let's take a look at a Valentine's canvas from Olga in non-traditional colors!
"For this work I use some envelopes and elements from Communique collection. I find them perfect for framing picture. This is my valentine frame with really cute picture of us. Its not traditional colors for valentines but we are non-traditional couple ( we prefer Halloween over Valentines). I really like using those small chipboard pieces from different collections they have really coo designs that can totally improve your project . I made video tutorial for this one." ~Olga
Tip: With different colour backgrounds try different color stamping I was trying to stamp black on yellow parts and yellow on grey ones and it give you really nice color effect :)

Policy Envelopes-Regular Black
Safari Adventure Sticker

“It is time to start thinking of Valentine gifts, decorations, cards and other “love” projects! I love making banners; so the Graphic 45 Policy Envelops along with the Kraft Alpha Banners works perfectly together to make all kinds of them. I created a Mon Amour “LOVE” Banner using the Mon Amour designer papers and chipboard along with some of the Graphic 45 Staples.” ~Pam
Tip: To form a quick and easy banner; hot glue corners of two Policy Envelopes together. Add as many as you need to form the banner.
Tip: Staple small borders to project to hold into place.
Tip: Distress edges of paper with distress tool to create addition vintage look before adding paper to project.
