I am not one to exaggerate things – there’s just no point. What good does it do to present an idea or situation as extremely different than it is? What results do people achieve when they overstate the importance or relevance of an issue? Nothing. Exaggeration is just a big, fat waste of time. That is why I don’t exaggerate things…ever. Today I’m over-the-moon to share with you the single most adorable Valentine’s Day project in the history of the world. Nothing you ever see will bring you as much joy as this single project I am sharing today. Check this out:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Pass! I made these cute, little Valentine’s bags and tags with one of my monthly stamp clubs. The members of the club loved the tags as much as I loved designing them – and they had a lot of fun creating them for themselves. All of our work, though, was put to the test when Marti asked her young daughter what she thought of the projects. She really liked the chick with the “be mine” sentiment but questioned the “I Like Your Face” sentiment. Maybe she’s too you, but I LOVE this sentiment.
- One for Boy, One for Girl. I love the idea of having Valentine’s projects that are designed for either a boy and a Valentine’s Day project for a girl. I don’t typically like to follow the social norms about colors, but all of these products (Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack, ink and matching Blendabilities markesr) coordinate so well that it seems like a slam dunk to make one for boy and one for girl. The “boy”got Angled Tag Topper, while the “girl” got the Scalloped.
- Layered Tag. The tags here are super-simple – yet they have a really great look to them. For each gift bag, I simply cropped three pieces of paper (one Whisper White and two Designer Series Paper) and punched each with a tag topper punch. I love how the papers supplement the critters without distracting from the cute images in this stamp set.
Here’s a closeup of each of the bags:
