Here are some of my favorite Valentine Ideas I found through internet searches and Pinterest. Love every single one of them. So many great ideas. http://www.pinterest.com/papercuties/valentine-ideas/



Here are the projects for my upcoming  Feb. Workshop.
 I'm using the new Water Color Wonder Washi Tape #133000, Gold Sequin Trim #132983, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch #133324, Gold Baker's Twine #132975, Gold Encore ink #132141, Gold Foil Sheets #132622, Sweet Heart Treat bags #134610, and Red Glimmer Paper #121790

I was completely inspired from a couple samples I found on Pinterest. I used their idea but added red to make it more my own. I love the simplicity of the white, gold, and red. 

Its hard to see all the layers of the white on white card. I have a white layer edged with gold and mounted onto white card base, I used a white heart doily in between the tag and card. I inked the edge of the tag with gold and added gold washi and sequins. I punched tag and decorative label, inked edges with gold, and added a red glimmer heart . 

I changed the treat bags to gold accents instead of turquoise that came in the kit. I used the gold twine and foil paper. I made a tag wrapper for around a Ghirardelli peppermint bark square ( red and white stripes with gold accents). I got the idea here

I found these adorable glass keys and the mercury glass mini bottles at Target after Christmas for $2.50 each. They were Christmas ornaments but I knew right away what I wanted to do with some of them. I added some red and gold foliage inside the mini bottle and some seam binding bows on the key for adorable Valentine decorations.  


Monochromatic Gold Birthday Tag

Playing around with Stampin' Up!'s new gold  Water Color Wonder #133000 Washi Tape. Love, love, love washi. This is also my first dabble using Seam Binding for Ribbon. I love, love, love that stuff too. 

It just so happened that the gift boxes that the presents I ordered online came in the colors that match so well with the gold tape and binding. It looks great together!

Sshhhhhhh... these are birthday gifts for a couple of my oldest, dearest girlfriends. 


Pink & Green Stylish Baby Card

Here is my take on a simple, non traditional baby shower card. I love good old green and pink together. This image is from KATIE & CO. named Maternity. I think I found this stamp for $1 at a discount store many years ago.  This is my go to image, I use it for all my baby shower cards lately. Its easy to color and perfect to add to the front of cards or tags. I always wrap my gifts to match the cards I make ( its my little OCD, I guess). I had some extra yarn leftover from a finger knitting project and used it to tie around the pink package. 


Snowman Memo Pad and Tag

I love covering these small memo pads with fun papers and cute images. This image and verse come from a set made by Darcie's Heart & Home. I added SU! googlie eyes for further whimsy. I bundled these together adding a couple matching pencils and another magnetic notepad. I love the bright colors. I  used Hershey kisses as filler. I will use this as a door prize at my upcoming home workshop.
