Hearts ♥♥♥

Hello blogcreatures!

I was wondering what does Valentine's day means to you? What it means to me is just another day in February.Why do we need a special day to say: ''you mean a lot to me'' or '' i ♥ you''? Sometimes we go through life in a rush and forget about all the little things that we should find enjoyment in.At least while we still have the eyes to see, ears to listen, heart to feel, fingers to touch, nose to smell and mouth to taste.Every single day is special , life is short...so enjoy it!
I couldn't wait to ink up this pretty Peggy stamp that I recevied from Stampotique.

 (Click Image)
Yes, it is a non-traditional valentine's day card. I ♥ it!
 (Click Image) 
For this card I used 4 different stamps all by Stampotique

Mounted vs Unmounted stamps.

Hello blogcreatures,

Stamps are a great addition to any card maker's or scrapbooker's collection.Working with unmounted stamps is not easy, so I had to choose between the wood block  or foam mountin.
(Click Image)
I think I've found the best solution.Waiting for my order to arrive it seems  forever so my dad made me some wooden blocks.Is not expensive, is fun and is a great experiment.
As part of the Stampotique Design Team, we receive our stamps umounted. Unmounted images are intended to be used ONLY by our design team members.You as a customer you will receive your stamps mounted.Check out the store : Stampotique Originals.

Check out my video tutorial and let me know if you have any question.

''Memories ''Accordian mini album

mornin' blogcreatures!

I'm not feeling well this morning.Oh!what a day!In my hometown the winter is very cold and I hate going outside so I sit in front of my computer and listen to Florence + The Machine - Cosmic Love .I hate my local P.O!There is always a problem , but nobody cares!Rude employers, lack of professionalism and high taxes for poor quality work.This what you get if you are too kind and respectful.I think there's more chance of me receiving your parcels if you send them by pigeon post.
Anyway, I want to share with you my lil' accordian mini album.
(Click Image)
It is a little book of memories.
(Click Image)
The front and back covers are made from chipboard and covered with  brown cardstock and patterned paper.
