Handmade Valentines

As you might expect, I handmade a bundle of Valentine's Day cards this year!


These cards are a fairly simple design: I used my Cricut machine to cut the bee shape ("Give a Hoot" cartridge), and hand drew the heart-shaped bee trail using a pink Sharpie marker. The card might look simple, but I put a lot of hours into these little cards. The bee is made of many tiny pieces which took a lot of careful handling to remove from the Cricut machine and required a a good bit of time to glue the numerous little pieces together. But it was worth the work!

What are your favorite paper crafting blogs? Where do you go for greeting card inspiration? I've been holding out on Pinterest, so is it time for me to take the leap? Suggestions are most welcome!
