First up are some cute tags made with the 2010 Love Tags stamp set, which will be available December 15th at Papertrey Ink. Using Papertrey tag dies, Happy Spots paper, vintage ledger paper and Cork Paper, I created some layered tags.
The *Be Mine* heart images one of the many from the 2010 Love Tag collection. Each of the PTI stamp designers contributed images to this set. Definitely a fun one to have for all those Valentine goodies. I love Valentine's Day and I always do a fun little countdown for my girls. For next year, I created a tag and coordinating heart tin for each little red. I'll add in little candies and treats for them to open the week of Valentine's Day.
And as a fun twist, I'm going to hide their little goodies in these vintage clothespin dresses that are currently in my Artsy Studio.
A little tag with their name on it....and a little goodie tucked inside each day along with some candy in the heart tins. Maybe some Reese's Hearts too...my faves.
Maybe some new fat quarters of fabric for Jordy...
And a pretty pink lip gloss for Josey....just little items to show that Mom loves them. :) Try to think outside the box when packaging items. Use items from your own home decor. You could also use little baskets....items wrapped in vintage hankies....spray painted tins that kids could use to hold pony tails or toy cars. Just get creative and have fun.
Here, I've created a card that with a non-Valentine theme. Although *be mine* just screams Valentine's Day, I combined some other sentiments to create a wedding card. The *Mr. & Mrs* is from 2010 Love Tags and the *happily ever after* is from Love Lives Here. A fun little collage of elements to create a whimsical wedding card.
And glitter makes everything better.....
