Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovelies!
I hope you have the sweetest day….with maybe some flowers…and definitely some chocolate.

Today I’m sharing the cards I’m giving to my kidlets, and then showing you how I’ve packaged them all up for my little family.

Valentine cards featuring lots of American Crafts goodness.



I packaged the cards for my husband and kids in little red gingham bags from my shoppe.  I did some faux stitching around the edges with a Unigball Signo gel pen (the best pen in the history of time), adhered chipboard letters from The Girls’ Paperie spelling out each person’s name, layered some diecuts from Doodlebug, and then tied a bow and topped it with a button.  The cards were made months ago and the bags I did last night – took me less than a half an hour, and it’s the perfect presentation!

    So darling, Michelle! The top card (your daughter’s I’m assuming) is to die for!! The glitter around the tree/cloud–did it come like that or did you do it yourself? Love it! You sure spoil your family–and that’s one of the best perks of being a mom, isn’t it? 🙂

    YOU are beautiful and it hurts my heart that you call yourself that “fat” girl…

    adorable. i made stuff for my family… and decorated… and did my annual “feast of hearts”. my family LOVES it (well, except my husband! lol!), but apparently, we’re not the “norm”. all the other moms at the kidlets’ schools thought i was “abnormal” for doing all that. not i! (and obviously not YOU! lol!) i have a great time doing it and celebrating the little things. glad you do, too! thanks for sharing, as always, michelle! love your stuff!

    These are absolutely amazing!!!! Love them. Love!!! Also your bags are fabulous – I’m pretty sure I ordered them (at Kelly Marie, from Lawn Fawn’s urging) – I used them for Valentines day gifts for my kiddies teachers/my office peeps. Here’s a link-a-roo to my blog posts showing what I did w/ them: http://heathersscrappiness.blogspot.com/2011/01/valentiney-you-like-my-word-huh-gifts.html

    I’m so happy I found your blog (on Sassafras’ Flikr) – your creations are amazing!!
