a little Valentine Love


When I flipped over the calendar this morning it hit me.

Less than 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day.

After all these years…

it’s still fun to throw a few hearts around to make sure he doesn’t forget.

I created this cute little Valentine’s decoration using a clear 4″ x 6″

acrylic craft frame from Deflecto Craft Solutions, scrapbook paper and stickers.

The sticker in the middle says “I belong with you & you belong with me”.

I think he’ll get the hint.

A Clever and Creative Way to Remember Birthdays.

I come from a large and always expanding close knit family.  With all that family,

there’s a lot of birthdays to remember.  As a solution, I decided to make a small desk

top monthly reminder with a funky vintage vibe.

I started with these cute little Heirloom Calendar Months that come on one 12″ x 12″

sheet of paper.  You can cut them up and add them to your journals, fold them to make

a mini calendar or birthday book or cut the month artwork to make your own daily or

monthly journal.  Each month features a little piece of art and you can color them to

match your style and journal theme.

I used the Heirloom Months along with a variety of Tags, Printed Paper and Ephemera

from Canvas Corp Brands Seven Gypsies Collections.

The base for my Birthday Reminder is a 4″ x 6″ clear craft frame from Deflecto Craft Solutions.

I drilled two holes in the top of the craft frame to hold the antique silver binder rings and

gather everything together.
