The stunning pastel color pallet and delicate fussy cut elements help give this LO a perfectly vintage look! Sweet Sentiments has everything you need to create loving handmade crafts! Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Let Romy's wonderful creation inspire you! Here is what she had to say about it.

"When I first saw the gorgeous “Sweet Sentiments” collection, I immediately knew I wanted to do lots of fussy cutting from these fabulous papers. I cut out some banners, cupids, hearts and butterflies and just had lots of fun arranging them around this photo of my mom. I’m always amazed by how Graphic 45’s papers almost scrap themselves: I just cut out some images and they kind of automatically fall in the right place. I just love it when that happens!" -Romy
