Good morning everybody, thanks for visiting the Lili of the Valley ‘ideas to inspire’ blog.
We’ve got a few exciting new ideas for you this month, we thought it would be fun to have themes every month and our fabulous design team have been beavering away to bring you some gorgeous creations using Lili of the Valley products.
We have chosen ‘love and romance’ and ‘spring animals’ as our themes this month so there are lots of bunnies, bears and bright spring colours as well as the cutest boys and girls.
There is going to be of course the usual selection of fabulous cards – and we also have a few projects to show you during the month which will hopefully inspire you to have a go. Nothing too complicated, just something a little bit different.
Don’t forget we also have our weekly candy giveaway where you can win a £10 LOTV voucher, this is now on the weekly blog candy page.
First up today is our lovely Moni with two cards using the busy bears stamps which you’ll find in the animals section on our website. The ‘teddy bears picnic’ is one of our sale stamps at the moment which for a limited time is just £3.00. Have a look at our special offers page here where there is a lovely selection of spring animals and a few of our other favourite stamps at special low prices.
