Ana says she loves the creative process and crafting is a very important part of her life. 'It is the only thing that keeps me sane when things get crazy,' she says. I think every crafty reader could join me by interjecting an 'Amen' here, as I'm sure we're all feeling a bit like Ana right now, camping out in our craft rooms to keep ourselves sane (and safe).

Ana's first designs were created for embroidery, but her focus quickly changed to creating cute and simple digi stamps suitable for cardmaking and scrapbooking. Ana loves to see how people transform her designs into little masterpieces. For even more crafty fun check out Ana's Little Things to Share shop where she sells THE cutest felt ornament patterns. Follow Ana on Instagram @lttsdoodles.

Ana is kindly offering her Winter Girl digi free this month, exclusively to Paperesse readers. The stamp will be available for the month of February only; to receive your digi, please leave a comment below, send an email to paperesse@live.com, and I will email you the stamp. This would be a super cute card for Valentine's Day, or just to say 'Hi', or combine the two for a Valentine's Day Hello, as I've done below.

Remember the little Valentines we used to swap as kids? Maybe I'm dating myself here, but I loved those! My mother bought me a box full of all different types and I chose one for each of my classmates. We decorated little sacks for ourselves that we stuck on the wall and then we put our Valentines in the sacks. This card going to a friend is channeling that fun feeling. I've always enjoyed making Valentine's Day cards for friends and family, not just my significant other. This guitar themed masculine Valentine's Day card for a cousin is a past favorite. 


This is a heart shaped card with the heart as the front of the card. When you open the card, the sentiment is on the back of the heart. Paper is Max Brigmann MotivKarton Sweet paper pad. I used a no-brand 'hello' die to cut the sentiment on an adhesive foam sheet and used more of the sheet and the leftover heart bits from a First Edition background die as embellishments. Using this type of self-adhesive foam makes adhering sentiments sooooo much easier. A little crinkled paper and red ribbon top it all off.
