design aglow fan share: getting creative with card templates

Kudos to Leah Simmers, who recycled her holiday card templates for yet another great use...I can't believe the smart ways you all use these templates! Leah says, "So I have to tell you, I stressed out so much trying to figure out how my kid could have a cool valentine to hand out. Of course I needed to find a way to add an image to it also for good 'ol promotion sake. The deadline was nearing and I continued to stress trying to find a creative way for not just a valentine but, a boy one. Then it hit me, picture plus Design Aglow background plus candy = cute valentine and happy kids. I used one of your holiday templates for the back of these valentine treats and I love how they turned out. My little man was quite pleased too." xoxo Leah Have you created something awesome with Design Aglow products? Feel free to send us images here.

The result is a sharper image.

Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
