Hello! I’m back to share with you a fun and easy card that shows a neat Spotlight technique.

Welcome! Its time for another Inspire, Create, Share Blog hop! This month we are trying to help get you inspired to finish up those love notes and treats for Valentine’s Day! I have this fun card for you – so please, keep reading and check out more about how I made it.

It has a bunch of cute patterns including multiple bokeh photo-realistic designs! (You can see all the prints in my Occasions Catalog walkthrough video starting at 26 mins HERE)

I got to play with this fun Balloons Pop Up Thinlit die during the OnStage convention in November and we made this fun card.

The new year is here and I’m trying to get back into my blogging groove. I had my first card class of the year last night, and it was such a blast to hang out with a bunch of fun ladies and stamp and gab and get just a little bit silly! So, while I work on photographing the new project ideas, I still wanted to share some great inspiration for the new year. Plus make sure to scroll down to check out my new 2017 Product Samplers!
