Happy Valentine’s Day! Instead of posting loads about the glorified love day I caught some icky sick-bug yesterday. But I did manage to make the Valentines I dreamed up in my head. Chalkboard wood slates and heart shaped chalk…! I painted the wood with chalkboard paint. Then I made the heart shaped chalk from Ikea ice cube trays with a homemade concoction.
I added a stamp to kraft paper. Layered with some of my Dear Lizzy RUFFLE paper, silver doily and some heart confetti. The bags are probably the most adorable paper bags my eyes have ever seen.
(The Dear Lizzy Ruffle paper is sold out at 2 peas but I spotted some at Blue Moon that is available.)
I used embossing powder to emboss on the bottoms of the mini chalkboards with a little Zing! and Zap! The glittery powder is such a cute touch. I only made about a dozen of these for cousins and besties because I was sick (actually, the real reason, I am just not that cool of a mom.;) For her class, Avery picked out some cat and dog valentines at Hobby Lobby. Because what says Valentine’s Day better than kitty cats dressed in clothes with the saying, “God made you one of a kind.” Avery knows what’s up! I snapped a picture of her box but still need to capture the Valentine she wrote to herself To: Avery Love: me. (You better believe I got first dibs on the loot!)
Happily surprised to receive a valentine from my cute friend Kelly. How darling and thoughtful are these?! Happy Valentine’s Day!
