Here is the valentine I made for my husband. He prefers simple, so I thought this would be perfect for him. the Cardstock is Real Red. I cut the heart shape in Whisper White and stamped the square scalloped image (from SUs Sweet Dreams set) in Real Red and also sponged the edge of the heart. The Love image (from SUs Love Matters set). I used the stained glass technique to color the Love image with my water color pencils. The Ribbon is from Target's $1 spot. I have been wanting to use the Sweet Dreams set and I'm glad I finally got to use it!
I am the type of person that doesn't like to throw things away, that I recieve. Birthday cards, holiday cards, etc. Well last year was my daughters first year in daycare and she recieved Valentines from all the kids. These Valentines have been in a bag and hanging in her room since last Valentine's day because I didn't want to throw them away and I didn't know what to do with them. Finally the idea came for me to scrapbook them. Duh! I don't know why it took me a year to figure that out! I just placed all the Valentines on the page, they actually all fit on one page. Which is cool. Now I can put that in her scrapbook. I didn't spend a lot of time embellishing or anything, I did cut out a double heart using my Creative Memories cutter and put a little journaling on that. I didn't think it really needed anything else.
