Valentines Day Printables

Valentines Day is just around the corner!

If you're a parent this means buying cards and candy so your child can pass them out to everyone in their class! Instead of buying those premade cards--why not make them at home? :) You don't even have to get candy--maybe attach pencils, erasers, pens, stickers....the possibilities are endless! Stick them on the back, write on the back, put them in bags, use them as tags, you decide!

and of course, just because you don't have kids doesn't mean you can't give out valentines day cards!!!

Give them out to coworkers, friends and family!

:) happy valentines day!

meet JESSIE~

apologies for the long silence. :/

November & December are my CRAZY busy months.

I just wanted to say...thanks everyone for being super encouraging. You don't understand how happy I get when someone says something to me about my blog. Thanks for all the love and support!! I can get discouraged at times knowing I'm such a noob compared to the great design blogs out there--but you all keep me going!

Here's my turtle for you Jessica!

I named her after you~

When I get stuck--and can't think of what to design/blog about--you guys keep me going--and always give me that forward push I need so much. Thanks :)

literally and figuratively :)

happy birthday card

PRINT - CUT - PASTE - EMBELLISH. easy peasy.

I designed a simple layout for a birthday card.

Super easy to create--download the template (directions are on the template) and try it out!

Piece together some of your favorite patterned paper and glue it all down flat! 

Add some embellishments. I used brown ribbon to make a bow--then stuck rhinestone stickers at the bottom of each triangle--and on the bow.

I like to use clear baggies as envelopes.

Here's the


if you want to make it yourself!

Show me your creations ;)

Meet POE

Originally I wanted his name to be Po like in Kung Fu Panda...but a three letter name looks more balanced. so.....I name thee POE!

I had the hardest time positioning the wing so I made three versions and made my husband choose haha. :) he's so helpful :P

anyhoo. Poe's sole purpose of existence was to be on a print card I made to give to a friend, but I can't post pictures until she receives the card first...haaaa

sooo, I'll post this instead: GO TROJANS!

what other animals should I make...?
