Valentine’s Day Ideas for the whole family!

I love holidays- especially the ones that really allow me to be creative and have fun with my family! Valentine’s Day is 100% one of those holidays!

I have created lots of fun stuff in preparation for the big day (and have a bag of hidden ‘goods’ to surprise my loved ones with that morning).

Here are just a few of the things I have created that I hope will inspire you!

kids valentine

This is the Valentine ‘treat’ for my kids to take to their class (at school for one and daycare for the other).  I used the February Stamp of the Month to create the ‘Wild Thing’ image and on the back used a nice black pen and a stamp image to add the phrase “… you are WRITE on”- cute, right?!

Sorry photo removed for publication!     

This in the card I intend to give to my sweet hubby! He tends to (really) dislike holidays and usually does not do a whole lot but I LOVE them (and if reads this then I suggest you do a little something for all of us that day… I know you can do it!).  This card looks simple (and truly it was) but it took a while. I used our new flamingo dots (you are getting some serious sneak peeks here!)  and a heart I cut out on the cricut.  The heart was cut out on Kraft paper so that it would blend in and not look like I had a base at all.  I then added my flamingo dots one by one.  To make sure they stay put I coated the whole heart with a layout of liquid glass- voila!

And last- my ‘I Love You’ decor frame.  At Christmas I had my advent calendar set up on this- now I am switching it to Valentines and I plan to list all the reasons I love my family and all the things they do to keep the love going! They can add to this as well.  I have a video showing the frame in detail below- enjoy!!

Halloween Home Decor with CTMH

Despite a very busy Thanksgiving weekend, I have managed to sneak in some crafting time!  Both of these projects have been on my mental ‘to do’ list for quite some time and I am so pleased they are complete!

My subway poster sign was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest- the best part is it cost me about $10 to make my own! All of the paper was from the Spellbound paper that was on my website a few days ago- it was about $2.75 in the while supplies last section (it is not there now but there is lots of other great goodies- check it out here!)

The piece of wood I bought at home depot- it was a much longer piece that I had the staff cut for me into three equal pieces (2 more projects can be created later on now!).  The images on my sign were all cut from the Cricut Art philosophy and the Cricut Artbooking cartridges -both can be purchased here.
 My ‘BOO” decoration are just pieces of 2×4 I had in the house already- my sister cut them down (she wanted to create her own set) and her fee was leaving me three pieces.  I painted them orange after giving them a quick sand.  For my stems I stacked different green buttons- used glue dots to stick them together and liquid glass to stick them on my pumkins.  The BOO is a title off the Cricut Artbooking that I just cut apart- I cut this out on some of our black glitter paper.  The letters were also stuck on with liquid glass (for both projects).

I LOVE how our product can be used for such cute home decor items!
