Creating Valentines.

First off, my Ruby is famous! She's featured on the Scrapbook Trends blog today! Oh, she's so cute!! :-D

Valentine's Day is not my favorite holiday. I don't like red and pink and cheesy stuff. I don't like girly, sappy poems and decor. LOL. It's funny though... I still want to *do* something cool on Valentine's Day. I think we'll go ice skating... LOL.

Anywho, I made these cards two years ago, but I was thinking of re-making them again this year because they're cute. I thought I'd share. And if I decide to lift them again this year, I'll let you know. ;-)

This first one, I gave to my parents. But as we were unpacking boxes last month, I found it. Hmph. Did I send it and then get it back? Did I forget to send it? Now, I'm so confused!

This is the front...

It's red cardstock glued to the front of a white card. And then I used my heart punch to punch a heart at the bottom. You can see the inside (white) showing through the punch. And then you open the card to see this...

I used my very best, childlike handwriting for that one! ;-) I traced the outline of the punch, so you could see the heart on the inside too. :-) Next time, I'll use red cardstock for the whole card, and glue a white punched heart on the inside, I think. :-)

This one was featured at Basic Grey in 2008. I made it to look like a little girl's dress. Tee hee.

And I made a Valentine's Day layout too. You may think it would be about my husband, but you would be wrong, my friends. There's no love like the love I have for my earplugs... ;-)

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Papers: Basic Grey; Alphas/Stickers: KI Memories;
Punches: Fiskars, Martha Stewart Crafts, Marvy and McGill; Pearls: Crystal

Journaling reads:

Dear Earplugs,

I’ll admit it... at first, I didn’t like you. As a matter of fact, I hated you. Mom told me you were the best; she said she couldn’t live without you. I didn’t think you were for me. But then, I didn’t have a choice. I had to give you another try. (Oh, sweet sleep, how I missed thee.) And you, dear Earplugs, you sent me the greatest gift: the gift of restful sleep. Your softness, your comfort. You drown out the ice maker, the garbage truck, even the dogs next door. You and me? We’ll be together forever. I know this is love. I can’t live without you now.
I love you, dear Earplugs! XOXO

That's *my* kind of Valentine's Day layout! Cheesy, silly, ridiculous. And on white cardstock! ;-)

So have you made any Valentine's Day themed projects? Link me up!

So cute!! I loved your creations for V-day. I know, I know V-day are kinda over-rated Holiday, too. It's not my fave.

I'm totally giggling over your Valentine's layout! I don't do mushy well either! Give me silly and goofy any day. Here's my project for you to check out.

A goofy title, a silly photo, and a cute puppy! What more could anyone want?
