Happy Valentine's Day Projects

Another Valentine's Day has come and gone. It was a good day.  I was spoiled with a bouquet of roses.  Dave and I were going to go out to the movies, but weather was snowy and slippery and he was stuck in traffic trying to get home from work.  So we decided to watch a movie from home while the kids did after dinner clean up.  And we both could then enjoy the bottle of Lindeman's Bin 40 Merlot that I had picked up earlier and we need to drink it before it spoils.  

Today I would like to share with you a few projects I have made for Valentine's Day.   I love special days like this, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's etc.  And Kim, on our team, has a few challenges for us this month, and I am hoping to scratch a couple of them off my list with these projects.  

First project is the card I made for my amazing husband. 

Supplies used: Heart paper doily (inked with Primrose petals and a sponged dauber), scalloped and cotton lace ribbon, ticket stub, and button all from Artisan Embellishments Kit  and More Amore Specialty Designer Series paper all found in our Spring Catalogue.

The image was stamped in Real Red Classic Ink in using the You are Loved stamp set. The image was then cut out using a heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits and my awesome Bigshot die-cutting machine  And the card base is Real Red cardstock, image was stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock.    

This second project is a little something I left at each person's seat for Valentine's day morning.  So cute.  Laura and Daniel actually had a few pieces for breakfast (nothing like starting you day off with a little sugar!!), Dave took his to the office and Amanda had the best self discipline of everyone, she didn't touch hers until after school.  

Supplies Used:  More Amore Speciality Designer Series Paper and Ciao, Baby! stamp set both found in our Spring catalogue.

The love tag was punched from the Petite Curly Label punch, which can be yours for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

 Itty Bitty Shapes Bunch Pack, Curly Label Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 1" x 8" Cellophane bag, Real Red, Very Vanilla and Primrose Petals cardstock, and Primrose Petals Classic Ink, all found in our main Catalogue.  

This third and final project was placed at each persons place at the table for dinner.  In each box there was heart shaped chocolates and red and white jelly beans in 4" x 6" cellophane bags.  The bags were tied with Whisper White Taffeta 3/8" Ribbon and Real Red 1/8" white edged Taffetta Ribbon.

Additional supplies used:  Real Red, Pretty Pink and Whisper White cardstock, Pretty in Pink Scallop Dots 1/2" ribbon, You are Loved Stamp Set, Real Red Classic Ink, Pearl Basic Jewels, Decorative Label Punch, Fancy Favour BigzXL, and Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.  All found in our main catalogue.
