Happy Heart Day!

Hi! Just dropping by to share the items I made for my sweetie for Valentines Day. We decided to make gifts for each other instead of buying them. Which is what I had planned on doing anyway. I was anxious to see what my sweetie would come up with though! I think that is the subject of another post. ;)

For the accordian album, I channeled my inner Cathy Zielske and made it clean and simple. Even though I used pink and red I kept it fairly neutral by adding kraft and black since it was for my sweetie. My brilliant (if I say so myself) idea was to punch a heart in the hidden journaling tabs and insert pink cardstock. I even added two colors of Glimmer Mist and used some Crystal Effects. My sweetie loved it and promptly put it on his mantle.

For the card, I cased it almost completely from iStamp. Again, I used pink and red but I think it was still masculine enough in the end. My sweetie placed his card on top of the refrigerator so he could see it every morning. Isn't he the best?

Give your sweetie a hug and enjoy the holiday!

One of my new projects this year was to fill out a perpetual birthday calendar for my family and friends. Thanks to my BFF Bethany for printing out my new calendar! This is a birthday card for my aunt Kathleen. She got to be the first person to benefit from this new calendar system of mine. I like the idea of sending handmade cards to let family members and friends know that I'm thinking about them. I know it put a smile on my aunt's face! I cased this card from someone but I can not remember who. :( Rest assured that my version does not do the original justice.

Until later!
