Happy Valentines Day!

Enjoy spending time with someone you LOVE!!

The Scrapbook Nook (my local scrapbook store where I teach) is featured on the Graphic 45 blog today! Check it out at Scrapbook Nook on G45.
They carry the whole line of Graphic 45 fact I am teaching a version of my Expolding Envelopes box using the "Once Upon a Springtime" papers this weekend...

Congrats to the whole gang at the store!!!

As promised, here are the Valentine Boxes I made over the weekend on Ustream...

My new website is live! We are working on getting the last couple of patterns up. All future patterns and kits will be available on the website rather than on Etsy. It's not "pretty" yet...working on that next...but it works! No more waiting for me to email your patterns...they are available for immediate download! The exception to this will be the Heritage Mini Album pattern. It will be available on ETSY due to the pattern being sent out in 6 parts.

Have an awesome week!



  1. Made my Valentines box last night and my daughter promptly "stole" it for her own. LOL Guess I shall be making another.

    Happy Valentines Day to you and yours.

  15. Laura,
    I just stopped by G45's site to see my fave LSS featured. Thanks for letting us know. I also saw that G45 is looking for new design team members. I hope you apply! :-) You'd be a great addition to their design team.

  18. Woo Hoo! Congrats! I love that exploding box! Wish I had more time right now to keep up with all of your beautiful creations!

  19. Thankyou for the inspiration, I have just made one of these gorgeous little boxes following your ustream video, just wanted to say thankyou for always being so sharing with your projects, I have given credit back to you, hope you dont mind me putting a link to you from my blog, thanks again xxx

  20. Wow, you've outdone yourself again Laura! Any chance we can see you make this online at your UStream channel?!

  21. Hi Laura,
    I was wondering if it's not too much trouble if you could post some pictures up, or maybe do a quikc youtube video of the mini's you made for these boxes. I was watching your Ustream channel and we never got to see how you finished off the inside of your mini you were working on with us and i'd love to see.
    Warm regards
