A Jillian Vance Design: Happy Valentine's Day!


post 1 of 2 for today...click here for my Countdown to Confetti!


Hello Hello!

2015 is definitely starting off with a BANG...I'm so happy to announce that I've joined the team at




I had so much fun guesting for them in November/December that they asked me to stay on as a regular Design Team Member!

Today, I'm sharing a Valentine's Day project!

paper:  authentique/smitten  stamps:  a jillian vance design true love  ink:  zing/black  other:  t$spot milk bottle, bright white divine twine, misc sequins, mme washi, enamel accents

First up is my card:


The stamps are from the True Love set.  I worked hard to make this postal/kid friendly....more on that in a smidge.

Next up is my altered bottle, you gotta love the Target $ spot:


I made a shaker tag!  I used the Sam E. Snowman circle die!  The tag is finished off with Bright White Divine Twine.

TIP:  Buy Christmas candy, pick out the red for Valentine's Day and save the green for St. Patrick's Day!

True Love
True Love


Sam E. Snowman

My card was inspired by




I'm also send the card to Winter for her



Make sure you read the directions, especially about the hazards of embellishments.  I used Enamel Accents rather than traditional Enamel Dots for safety reasons.

The altered bottle is being sent to Winter for all of her hard work!

I'd love for you to stop by the A Jillian Vance Design blog and leave me some bloggie love!
