I found a lot of adorable Valentine items for the house from Francesca's, like this sweet wall plaque with one of my favorite sentiments. I love the pink color. I've seen this sentiment many times on other wall hangings, but never in this color. I really like it. I'd love to have this hanging in my bedroom.
And I also found this lovely wall hanging at Francesca's. Wouldn't this be great for an office? I can see someone looking at this during an especially stressful day and knowing someone out there loves you.
What I like about both of the Francesca items is that a creative person could very easily make them themselves. I know I could. But quite often, by the time you buy all the supplies and take the time to make it, it costs just as much (if not more) than if you just bought it.
I have seen a lot of cute things popping up all over the paper crafting world that I admire. Like these cards:
This treat package is probably my favorite, because it combines two of my favorite hobbies, sewing and paper-crafting. I also think the bag could be re-used by the recipient, and I love how soft, romantic, and vintage it looks.
Like sweets? Look at these cuties! I might have to go off my diet and bake these!
Looking for a romantic table setting? How about this one:
You can buy these pretty rosebuds at any crafts store for just a few dollars. Don't they make a romantic table setting?
All these ideas and more you can find on my Valentines Idea Pinterest Board HERE. If your not already a follower of mine, I encourage you to follow. I am constantly pinning great ideas, recipes, and fashion to Pinterest. It's one of my favorite websites!
But I won't leave you with just pics of other artist's creations. I do have one project I can show you. This is actually an anniversary card that I made for a couple at my church, but I used Valentine images and papers to create it:
The main image is a retired MFT set called 'Hearts Galore', and the paper is from an old Valentine Bo Bunny Pad called "Crush Collection". The sketch is from Splitcoaststampers (SC524).
I put a pink ribbon behind the main image panel for more texture and interest.
So what about you? What special things are you planning to make or buy for the loved ones in your life? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
