Valentines for my Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! Well, not for long, but the spirit of love should live on throughout the year, right? :)

I made a couple of valentines for my sweet valentines, my girls, last night. I know - Eleventh hour, right? Story of my LIFE lately!!!

Anyway, I wanted to jump into My Pink Stamper's 10,000 Hits/Pinkalicious Blog Hop challenge, so I made the cards to fit the challenge - make a project using red, a circle, pink ribbon, two My Pink Stamper stamps, and a diecut.

This is what I came up with:





  • Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge for scalloped circle card base cut at 4 " and mat circle cut at 3.75"
  • Cricut Gypsy Wanderings for heart cut at 2"
  • Colorbok textured 12x12 paper purchased at Walmart
  • Stampin' Up Pretty In Pink cardstock
  • Stampin' Up Real Red cardstock
  • Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder to emboss pink mat circle
  • Stampin' Up Pretty In Pink 7/8"organza ribbon (purchased several years ago)
  • "Love Always" and "Handmade with love by" sentiment stamps by My Pink Stamper 
  • Stampin' Up Real Red dye ink
Simple, right? I left a lot of room on the inside of the cards to write a special message to each girl. The cards matched well with the gift bags full of girly goodness I gave them tonight. My valentines were spoiled with lip glosses, lotions, mini purse mirrors, cozy Aeropostale slipper socks, Aeropostale necklaces plus LOTS of yummy chocolates.

The My Pink Stamper set I used on the card is extra special because I won it at Robyn's class at CHA in July 2010!!

Emma of My Creative Time took this pic - so cool!!
What a craft geek I am here - My Scrap Queen tee
from Michael's (pink of course!) and wearing my
Cricut Imagine bug sunglasses on my head-LOL!

It was so much fun to meet these crafty celebs in person. They were all so fun!

Well, I gotta hit the mattress ball as my awesome "Nawlins" friend would say. Have a good remainder to your week all!
