Love is in the Air…

…and I’m a little late acknowledging it.

Soooooo, my studio re-org has taken a wee bit longer than I’d anticipated. It’s going well, and is in the home stretch (it now includes a pretty fab-tastic creativity corner—I’ll share pics when everything’s in place), but it has meant a longer gap in posting than I’d like.

That said, I do want to share some really sweet Valentine designs before the big day, this Friday. If you can’t get your hands on these in time for this Valentine’s Day, order them now anyway, and you’ll be all set for next year!


The folks at Hello!Lucky have such a broad line of super-delightful love-related cards, it was difficult to choose which ones to share, here. Be sure to click through to see all of their romance-related designs. They also offer a series of fun, free printables, featuring art from several of their popular cards.

Wild Ink Press

Rebekah Tennis, Wild Ink Press designer/creator extraordinaire, came up with these seriously cool Valentines for classroom exchanges. At one point, she was offering a special free shipping deal; I’m not sure if it’s still active, but it’s definitely worth trying the following code at checkout: LOVE2014.

Wild Ink Press also offers a nice selection of love and romance cards featuring gorgeous lettering and quirky illustration.

Puddleduck Paper Co.

Puddleduck Paper Co.’s line of love and romance cards is sweet, simple, and just plain wonderful (and, they sell several of their designs in a Valentine’s Day Variety Pack).

Igloo Letterpress

Igloo Letterpress’s series of sexy/funny “You Can…” cards have just the right amount of wink-wink sass for your honey on Valentine’s Day.

Ginko Papers

If some Valentine crafting is on the schedule, Ginko Papers’ FunTape line of decorative tape offers several heart-related tapes, as well as a variety of other sweet designs—perfect for adding a stripe of happy color to the back of an envelope, or for featuring in your own, hand-made Valentine.

I’m hoping to get at least one more round of sweet somethings posted before Valentine’s Day, so remember to check back here between swoons.
