I am so very excited for Valentine's Day this year! I don't know why but I geuss it has something to do with the fact that this year we are going out to Disneyland for Valentine's Day and I think it will be so much fun! The last few Valentine's Day's we haven't really been able to go out and celebrate because of my health, so I'm just really looking forward to this one! I already wrote my hubby a love letter and am working on a handmade Valentine...and I have been dropping sweet little hints here and there for him as to what I might like for Valentine's Day...heeheehee! Anyways, I have also been working on decorating the house for Valentine's Day and making some sweet Valentine Scrap projects to add to the decor. Here's what I have so far:
I made this layout using mostly Crate Paper's 14 collection along with some Basic Gray Fact or Fiction and Dear Lizzy Neopolatin. I also used my new heart punch by fiskars which is my new favorite scrap tool right now and I find myself using it on everything! For the hearts I used scrap paper from Authentique, October Afternoon, Basic Gray, and My Minds Eye. I love the pic of me and my hubby! And he says he loves this layout which really makes me smile! I think it came out pretty swell too :-) Hope you like it!
And here is a pic of a little Valentine mini I made using some old Valentine paper I had from last year and some older Recolections/My Minds Eye paper that isn't Valentines Day themed but it is all red and black and I think it goes well. I used a bunch of vintage Valentine style ephemera for it like these cute coupons that say free date night and free kiss and free hug and such!
I think the mini is cute so far, I still need to fill it with pics of me and my hubby Ryan and then it will be done. Yay!
Here are some pics of this little box that I made using Crate Paper's 14 and Basic Gray's Fact or Fiction. Used the heart punch again here. I really wanted to make something to put some love notes in. I thought it would be great if I put a note in there every so often throughout February for Ryan and he did the same for me...now I just need to talk my hubby into doing that :-) I think it's a sweet idea, what do you think?
Well I am off to work on some more Valentines Scrappiness...next post will probably be a cool banner that I am working on using Pretty Little Studio's Valentine collection and some red burlap...I hope you like it!
