Craft Stamper - a Valentine's Project

And a little giveaway, yes I want to thank you for following my blog and it's very sporadic posts LOL! and as a thank you I have a copy of this months Craft Stamper waiting to be posted to anyone who leaves a comment and random generator number will choose a winner on the 23rd of Jan :)
Wow, we're still seeing blankets of snow and some gaps where we needed it for our fabby snowman LOL!

OK... so it's been over a week since my last post I had to check my archives, as I thought for sure I'd already raved about being in this months Craft Stamper magazine but apparently it was one of those posts composed only in my mind.
This is a bit overdue and I just had so share the fun, it's a little funny to think I was creating for valentines three months ago. You can click on the magazine cover to take you to their website where they have a super cute vintage picture to download.
I was inspired by the age of valentines and did a little research into the original cards and handmade gifts it's amazing all the information. Valentine Puzzle Purses were the rage in the 18th and 19th century and so I just had to create one.

I hope you enjoyed my sneak peeks and sorry I haven't edited the pictures, In this issue you will see I've created a puzzle purse, with a metal rose inside an ornate box, a couple of vintage cards, a picture frame and postcard. I opted for digital patterned papers and found them so versatile and a great way to be really experimental. So if you can get through the snow I hope you enjoy your copy.

I do have more posts intended for today so hope I can get on here later too and show you my Design team card for the Basic Grey challenges and a card for the greeting farm challenge too phew!!! so much to catch up on!
BiG HuGs catch you later, Kim :)
