I Love You Card

I love this time of year. It’s the time that we actually take an opportunity to tell each other, “I love you.”

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided to create my own I Love You Card for my loved ones.

Making customized cards for any occasions is one of my favorite things to do, and it is so incredibly simple, but makes a big impact-kind of like sending a hug to their mailbox.

Say I Love You this Valentine’s Day with this DIY card tutorial.

Valentine’s Day Confetti

Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s day? I’ve been having so much fun decorating with beautiful reds and pinks, and one of my favorite ways to spruce up my home is to add holiday-themed confetti.

Last St. Patrick’s day, I made shamrock confetti, and have been obsessed ever since. This year, I’m making pink and red heart confetti that I can use for my place settings, hall table, or even add some dimension to my Valentine wreath.

If you’re feeling really festive, add some heart confetti to your Valentines and literally shower your special someone with hearts!

Love Tags

Valentine’s day is coming up, and it’s been years since I purchased gifts from the store. I much prefer to gift handmade goodies and send them off with a special tag.

For me, the best part of gifting is seeing others reactions when they see the care that went into the package. It’s kind of like sending a hug, but with a Love Tag.

These adorable tags are a small detail but allow you to personalize your gift and make it very special.

Watch my tutorial to help you make your own unique tags and wow your special Valentine.

Can you believe it’s 2018? Even though it’s only January, I’m thinking ahead to next month and Valentine’s Day.

I love that we get to use bright,  happy colors to celebrate those we love. One of my favorite ways to decorate for this heart-filled holiday is to create fun place settings.

This year, I decided to make Valentine Placemats, and they turned out beautifully!

Valentine’s Day Wreath

Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and I can’t wait to make a heart wreath to hang on my wall. I’ve been enjoying these simple, elegant wreaths, but neither my Thanksgiving Wreath nor the Maple Leaf Wreath fits with the changing seasons.

Instead, I’m using the same techniques to create a heart wreath with traditional Valentine colors-red, pink, and white. I can’t wait to hang it on my wall!
