More Valentines...

Yeah, yeah I know Valentine's Day is over and we are all starting to focus on everything Spring...St. Patty's Day & Easter this way comes! I have been extremely busy and haven't had much time to sit down and devote any time to my crafting world in awhile. I thought before time slips by any further, I would share with you my Valentine's Mobile I created as well as my little Jack's Valentines for school.

The main part of this mobile was created using Making Memories Je t'Adore Chandelier Kit. For the amount of goodies packed into the kit, it was a great price. However, I wanted to give it some extra pizzazz. (Pizzazz? What a funny word. :)) With the help of some glamorous goodies from my cousins, I think the "chandelier" was a success. My scrappin' girls came over and we all created these to give that extra holiday flair to our homes. The glamorous goods that were added were the "big" crystal baubles, the dainty crocheted flowers and the felt lasercut hearts. I also added vintage red pom pom trim at the top. The photos I added are of my Jack dressed in his tux for my brother's wedding last year, my sweet little Sam in his red dupioni silk outfit blowing bubbles at the wedding, Jack sitting on my lap in my hot pink party dress, and the last is of my Frankie and I the day before we got married. Those were the days, so young and fresh! :)



I created these black, red & baby blue valentine's over at http://www.tinyprints.com/ for Jack's classmates this year. Yeah, it was a major cop out not helping him create "homemade" valentine's. I know, shame on me but time got away from me as usual. To give them more of a personal touch, Jack wanted to give cards that represent something that he is growing more and more passionate about every day...his music. (He had his very first guitar recital yesterday, and did fabulous! Look out Justin Beiber!) He chose the "rockstar" guitar design and we were able to add a photo of him in his rockin' shades. He delivered them in clear envelopes, my favorite. Inside we put little "ROCK star" pins for each child. I created those, hey at least part of it was handmade! The stars were stamped and embossed in silver embossing powder to give them the extra shine!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous week!

Girlie it was really touching to see your comment on my work over at Paper Issues- for a minute I got really full of myself and felt a lot better about my talent. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your continued support- it means SO MUCH to me.
Now for this project- it's FA.BU.LOUS!!!!! LOOOOOVE how you jazzed up the kit but also LOVE the photo! Look at all those starry twinkling lights- it's a great way to shoot it!! The felt hearts are my favorite touch. No one snuck away with it at the end of the scrap day did they? It's that cute!
