Love Letters 2023 Valentine Exchange
« on: March 08, 2023, 12:11:57 PM »
I really enjoyed this exchange. I went beyond my comfort zone and tried some new techniques. I decided to do mini-folders with a bookmark, exemplar tag, and a "specimen" card. This definitely took some time but every minute gave me such enjoyment. I also included a little sneak peak of the new "passionate flourish" script capitals I am including in my upcoming book (hopefully, some day  ::) ).

I also received a really LOVELY bunch of Valentines from my listmates. Thank you all so much for participating!

P.S. The faux stamps are a free download from The Graphics Fairy.

Please share your exchange below if you'd like.
Warm Regards,
Erica

Receiving your exchange in the mail @Erica McPhee was such a treat! One I will cherish. You went above and beyond with this one.
I really enjoyed this exchange as well. I saw this bear online but without a pattern so I 'reverse-engineered' it, which was fun. Uploaded the design to my Cricut and then assembled.
No where near as time-consuming as your project Erica, but it took enough time as well. Thoroughly enjoyed myself though! My motivation was my nieces. I made a much simpler version for them. :)

I agree, Erica your valentines were a dream to receive and appreciate! I'm still admiring all the detail that went into such gorgeousness!  :)

Star, your valentine touched my heart! Thank you so much for your beautiful and creative card!

I can't seem to find where I saved my valentine pics, bummer. Thank you all for your amazing mail! Snail mail truly is the best!

@Starlee - Your bears are absolutely delightful!!! And so much work to reverse engineer and then use the Cricut and then assemble and then do the calligraphy! Your Spencerian is beautiful!  :-*

Thanks so much Grace @passionforwriting ! Your envelopes are always a joy to receive!  :-*
Warm Regards,
