PGCB #97 - Valentine/Love

Hello, Brittany here to kick of our first challenge for February with the Paper Girls! Since February is the month of love - we challenge you to create something for your Valentine or about love. 

Challenge #97 - Valentine/Love


We have exciting news - this challenge is sponsored by Alisha from Scrap N' Dipity! Here is a bit more about this fabulous artist:

"Hi! My name is Alisha, I'm 31 years old and live in Ontario Canada. I've been creating graphics since I was 13 years old, which was a long time ago now! I like to create anything cute and kawaii style. I'm a huge crafter, I love to create all kinds of things! If it's a DIY project I will definitely try it. I started creating pixel graphics and have recently decided to jump into Scrapbooking products with my site Scrap N' Dipity. When I'm not creating I like to spend my time with my husband and our furbabies."


Alisha will be giving away two (2) $10 gift certificates to shop from her amazing digital shop - we'll randomly select one winner from participants from the Valentine challenge and Alisha will select one winner of her choice! We'll post the winners with our next challenge on Monday, 2/15/16.

Lucky us, we got to play with one of her darling digital images for this challenge - Scribble Sally - Be My Valentine.



Please welcome our Guest Designer for the month of February:  
Tara Sell


Hi, I'm Tara and I have always enjoyed creating crafty projects and within the last couple of years have decided to seriously pursue my love of all things paper, stamps, home decor, glitter, and more! I started up my blog a little over a year ago and have been slowly learning more skills and adding to my collection of crafty tools, tricks, and must-haves!  The blog is a place for me to share what I've learned and hopefully inspire others to pursue their passion, whatever that may be. Six months ago I decided to try my hand at creating crafty videos and started a YouTube channel to share my projects.  The crafting community is full of wonderful minds, open hearts, and amazing talent - I'm so excited to be a part of it! 

Join me:


For this project I printed the adorable image on kraft cardstock and colored her in with my Prismacolors.  This is one of my favorite coloring techniques and it really allows the image to be the star of the show!  For some added whimsy I outlined her with a white gel pen and used some cute puffy stickers and patterned papers to create a lovey dovey Valentine's theme.  





Beautiful card, Tara!  Here is how the rest of the design team used this sweet image:

I wanted to use Scribble Sally to make Valentines for my girls - she was PERFECT!


My daughter has already declared this cute little girl and card as hers!  Scribble Sally is just the cutest little girl and perfect for Valentine's Day.
