Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine 2013

I got a little crafty this year for Valentine’s Day :) I found this cute conversation heart printable at Studio DIY. There are a lot of fun tutorials and DIY downloads here. Be sure to check it out!

I’ve been wanting to try incorporating sewing and paper for a while. When I saw this post, I knew what cards to make for my parents and sister.

Valentine Cards

ETA: Although the photos are the greatest, here is the card I made for Nathan:

I saw this awesome pixelated popup heart card too late to make last year so I knew I had to make it this year! The ‘You & Me’ on the front came from a weekly freebie at A Little Hut. I’ve mentioned before how cool her paper crafts are :)

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I made this last year for Nathan from this tutorial.

Patricia Zapata of A Little Hut shares her awesome ideas for paper crafts and decor on her blog. She also has an online store where she has cutting and printing files “which will compliment your scrapbooking, card making and decorating paper crafting projects.” I really love Patricia’s designs and want to try more of her ideas :)

❤ Have a Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A bell is no bell ’til you ring it,
A song is no song ’til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay –
Love isn’t love
‘Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, “You Are Sixteen (Reprise)”

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.
