Valentine Matchbook

I'm playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge, where Lexi Daly is showing us how to make darling little matchbook Valentines. It doesn't get any sweeter than this, folks! Here are some of the cuties that she made ...


I made up a little sample matchbook that I'll be duplicating for my four grandsons. My mission is to always make them the most glittery, girly Valentines possible :) That's just the way I operate and they get me (thankfully). I haven't decided what I'm putting in mine yet, but here it is ...



Pretty much everything is PTI, except the glitter and Glossy Accents. I used Keep It Simple: Valentines stamps, One Big Happy stamps and dies (such a fab freebie from PTI) and Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches dies. Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Lovely Lady, Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream.
Ink: Smokey Shadow, Lovely Lady, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse.
