My Loves...

I created this page for my kids and husband this past Valentine's day.  It was inspired by a layout by Jen Jacobson, a fellow Stampin' Up! demo. 

My kids created wonderful Valentines for their dad and then punched a TON of hearts to create a trail to find them. They spent a long time creating a path to the cards and then drawing a matching map to go with it. They were so excited to share it with their dad when he came home-it was just as much fun as giving him his valentines! 

My pictures from their special surprise will make it to this page soon (I hope!  I always forget to print my digital photos!). 
This cute chalkboard inspired journalling box will be where I write my story (with white gel pen).  This is a huge trend in the crafting world right now!  I love the new Pool Party embossing powder (for the Details word) along with the white.

Another big trend is banners and this one was quick and easy to create with the Hearts a Flutter stamps and matching framelits dies.  I also colored silver glimmer paper to make the sparkly cute heart.
These strips of paper (from the More Amore DSP pack) are adhered only on each side and the bottom like a pocket so I can tuck in the map and extra pics and the valentine cards.
I hope you like it!
Stop in tomorrow for a quick and easy gift you can make!
