There's so much love happening this month! With Valentine's Day right around the corner and springtime seeming to peek through across the country (or just flat out summer with our 80 degree days here in SoCal), we have so much love and excitement with every new day. As it is the "month of love", we got to thinking. Our Creative Director of New Markets and in house Sizzix License Designer, Jen Long, has collections relating to love. Would she maybe show us those collections for some inspiration? Jen not only showed us her favorite dies and projects from her Hello Love collection as well as her Me & You collection, she talked with us about these lines- and why the Hello Love line in particular is so special to her. These are two collections that are filled to the brim with love- and its that kind of love and inspiration that we want to share with you today.
Me & You
We were almost awe struck by Jen's Be-you-tiful phrase die, especially after seeing it in action on her scrapbook layout. A cute play on words, this phrase also made us pause for a second. Be you. Be-you-tiful. Beautiful. We love the positive message of this adorable phrase, especially when making a special Valentine for a younger person.
These cards just make us happy looking at them. For the first one, Jen used her Fancy Chevron Card Front along with some cute patterned paper and some ribbon to add some accents and embellishments. For the second card, Jen used her collection's name sake, the Me & You phrase as the centerpiece for her card. We love the look of both of these cards so much!
These mini cards are hands down adorable. They're tiny, they're simple, they're cute and it took everything in us to not try and run away with them. Jen created these mini cards using her Notebook Base With Layering Shapes, adding some colored ribbon for some extra cuteness. How can you not love these tiny little cards?! The cuteness is real.
These are the cards from Jen's Hello Love collection that hold so much meaning to her- both the Rounded Label Fold-a-Long Card and the Jar Fold-a-Long Card were the first cards that Jen created for the Fold-a-Long line. It's amazing to see where this Sizzix trend started, and to watch as it progresses with each new line Jen creates! But did you see the display inside of the Rounded Label Fold-a-Long Card? The Love With Hearts is one of the coolest dies that Jen created. Getting to see the die compared to her sketches made us fall in love with it even more.
We have to say that our favorite of Jen's favorites is this Jar Fold-a-Long Card. Beautifully replicating a mason jar, this card brings back memories of spring time, cold tea, blue skys and gorgeous sunlight. With the perfectly pink ribbon and colorful use of Jen's Love You Stamps, we're ready to start making our own cards of sunshine and love.
We told you we had love and inspiration to share today! Jen hand selected these items for this sale, and we are all really excited to be able to share some Sizzix love and Jen's Favorites with you right before Valentine's Day! What are your favorites from Hello Love or Me & You?
