BE MINE: 25 PAPER PROJECTS TO SHARE THE LOVE

S U R P R I S E !!! I wrote another book! My new book, Be Mine: 25 Paper Projects to Share the Love, is a sweet little book that contains 25 paper craft projects. Over the many years that I have been a designer and crafter, I have always loved to create special love greetings for friends and family. Although Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays to craft for, I believe that we should celebrate love 365 days a year.

Be Mine is a great book for beginner and seasoned crafters, kids and adults. Each of the 25 projects provides step-by-step instructions on how to turn a few simple materials in to a heartfelt keepsake. Many of the projects include printables, that make the crafting process straightforward and simple. These projects are perfect for those who would love to create something handmade for a loved one. They also make for cute and fun Valentine's Day greetings and party/wedding favors. 

I am fortunate to have worked with an amazing team at Chronicle Books, including my editors Elizabeth Yarborough and Laura Lee Mattingly and book designer Anne Kenady. And I am thrilled how Max Wanger captured the spirit of the book through his amazing photographs. I also want to give a shout-out to two talented design/craft/lifestyle bloggers, Joy Cho of Oh Joy! and Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, for their support of the book through their endorsements. 

Over the next few months I will sharing more details about Be Mine, the book writing process, and some behind the scenes snippets. There will also be some fun giveaways, so make sure you are following me over on Instagram (@sallyjshim). 

The book will be officially released on December 22, but you can pre-order now at:

LET'S STICK TOGETHER VALENTINE PRINTABLE V 2.0

My Let's Stick Together valentine printable from last year was one of my favorites so I decided to update it by changing the font and adding two new colorways. You can adhere a sheet of stickers, a cute pack of bandaids, or a sticky pad to the valentine printable. I found heart shaped sticky pads at our local market which are perfect for these valentines. Write the recipient's name on the sticky pad or print out personalized labels.
