I wanted to share a few things today that I did to show my family how special they are to me...
First off, I made treat bags for the kids. I used PTI glassine bags and filled them with Hershey's kisses. Then, I diecut some Echo Park patterned paper with my largest Mat Stack 6 die and added a diecut heart prints die, stamped with a Heart Prints stamp. I cut my banners using the double-ended banner die and stamped with a sentiment from Heart Prints.
Then, this morning, after seeing today's anniversary challenge at Papertrey Ink, which was to create an accessory of some sort, I suggested to Sage that we make her a few clips to dress up her Valentine's outfit. Since she doesn't want to wear them in her hair anymore, I suggested that we clip them to the collar of her shirt.
I used my Papertrey Ink Notched Flower and Heart Prints dies, PTI felt (vintage cream, raspberry fizz and pure poppy) and some buttons (pure poppy, raspberry fizz) & twine. I hot glued some barrettes to the back, near the top and we clipped them onto her shirt. Here are a couple of close ups:
And, as if that wasn't enough, I baked and decorated a cake and some heart cookies for my valentines...
I used my PTI Hello Sunshine dies to diecut some Echo Park patterned paper to make my banner. I used the tiniest heart die from Heart Prints and diecut the heart from every second triangle.
I hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's day.... I'm expecting my kids home shortly for lunch.... I'm going to make grilled cheese sandwiches and cut the centres out with a heart cookie cutter. I also told Jonah last night that since Cameron is taking me out for supper (yay!), I'm going to make heart shaped pancakes for them before we go (it's a surprise from Austin and Sage though.... but I'm sure they'll love it!)
Thanks for looking!
