Belated Valentine's Post

Let me start with the card Fisher gave to Rylie at church. What you must understand about this relationship is that my son is 5 years old and Rylie is a freshman in college. He picked out the image from the Lettering Delights "Love Pets." This was my first Print-and-Cut card. It was so easy with the Make the Cut software. I added the google eyes, some glossy accent to the hearts, and the ribbon. The background paper is from DCWV.


This next project was a few weeks in the making. I was inspired by an idea I saw in a magazine (can't remember right off which one) to use a miniature chocolate for the body of a robot. I decided to use the Robots cartridge to make these Valentines for my son to give away at preschool. I wrapped the miniature chocolates in spare design paper and used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background paper. They were just too cute especially with the different size eyes. I was proud of Fisher. He wrote each of his classmates name and signed each card. He was very excited to hand these out.
Here is a closer look at the girl and boy cards. By the way, the heart is a Creative Memories punch and the "Hello Friend" stamp is Studio G clear stamp.


For my colleagues at work I chose to use the Lettering Delights "Love Pets" again with the PNC method. Did I tell how easy I thought this was :) Each tag has a magnet on the back and is attached to a goody bag filled with chocolate and candy.








I chose to use the Lettering Delights "Monster Love" for my DH's card. The border at the bottom is an EK Success punch which has quickly become one of my favorites.


I really wanted to do somethiing very special for my mom's card. I have made a tri-shutter fold card. This allowed me little canvases to be creative.

See the little inchie down in the bottom left corner--- love it!

The butterflies are a Creative Memories punch. They were the last thing I added and it really made the card pop. I hope my mom realized that the heart at the top right was a magnet.

Thanks for taking a look. Although Valentines Day has come and gone I hope this inspires you to send a note to the one(s) you love.
