Valentine’s Day Crafting Essentials

Valentine’s Day Crafting Essentials

What better excuse is there to get crafting than Valentine’s Day? Okay, we know it’s still a few weeks away… but if you want to knock the socks off someone special’s feet with your crafty efforts, then now’s the time to get creative! Have a little browse through our Valentine’s Day essentials for ideas and inspiration.  Did you know the Victorians believed it to be terribly bad luck to sign a Valentine’s Day card? You won’t want to leave your name off your stunning creation once you’ve seen what we’ve picked out!

Our Favourite Valentine’s Day Crafting Supplies:

Brother ScanNCut Tattered Lace Romance USB and Paper Pad

We’re kicking it off with a biggie – this incredible combo is designed to take your loved up crafting to the next level! Designed for use with your Brother ScanNCut, the Tattered Lace Romance USB is packed with beautiful designs, including churches, hearts, love birds, and more. Use these designs to create incredible toppers and embellishments for your Valentine’s Day projects… but that’s not all! This handy bundle has got you covered with the breathtakingly beautiful Romance Paper Pack.  Discover floral designs in an array of pretty pastel colours – perfect for crafting for February 14th!

Blockwallah Stamps: Patterned Heart and Floral Heart

Looking for something a little different, that still says “I adore you”? Look no further. Getting your hands on a Blockwallah Stamp is like capturing a thousand years of Indian tradition and tucking it away inside your craft kit. As each stamp is handmade in India, you can guarantee that no two will be the same – so every stamped image you create will be entirely unique to YOU… now how’s that for romantic?

Creativ Card and Envelope Assortment in Red

Check out these adorable heart-shaped cardblanks! Now if a bespoke red heart, decorated with all your best hand-crafted embellishments doesn’t say ‘I love you’ then we don’t know what does! These would be a great way for little ones to have a go at crafting for Valentine’s Day too – they could their own drawings, handprints, or stick a photograph on the front to create something forever-cherishable for Mum or Dad!

Core Collection Cardstock

Check out the colours on these! Good quality cardstock is a must, and if you need to stock up on your Valentine’s Day colours, then here’s the easiest way to do it – with our incredible Core Collection Cardstock. Use this gorgeous cardstock to create die-cut embellishments, toppers, background layers and more… there are so many colours and finishes of card to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Creativ Stamping:

We fell head over heels as soon as we saw these adorable little stamps from the Creativ range! How fabulous would these pretty little seal designs look stamped on the envelope of your Valentine’s card, or – if you’re planning on sending an anonymous one – you could use this inside the card instead of signing your name! There are plenty more designs available, and you can check them all out right here!

Well that’s just a few of the loveliest romance-themed goodies that caught our eye… of course there’ll be plenty more to come as the big day draws nearer, so keep your eyes on the website, and let us know what you fall in love with!
