Vintage Camper Valentine's Boxes...

Today I am posting photos of the sweet Vintage Camper Valentine's Day Boxes my grand daughters and I made today.  They turned out really cute and we are very proud of them!  I am sure they will be admired at school for the girls Valentine's Day parties!

Here's a few during construction photos.  I also used construction and decorating ideas from http://pinkbuckaroodesigns.blogspot.com/2014/01/mini-camper-whole-lotta-love-project.html 
The lid closure was a challenge so we just attached pink pipe cleaners and twisted them to 
hold the lid closed.

Swinging Raccoon Card...

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my granddaughters 5th birthday. I used downloaded elements from Harper Finch and paper (Sea Love) from Far Far Hill.  I was sure to add interest to her card by making her little raccoon swinging from the tree. It's so easy and added a special touch and interest to her card.

Free Dachshund Valentine Printable...

Today I am posting a free Dachshund Valentine printable I created that includes a card and two tags. I have also included a banner and two hearts on the printable to add to your card and tags. I printed this, made it and I am posting the finished pictures so that you can see how the printable items go together.

Save and print onto white cardstock. I added the black outline so the card and tags would be easier to see to cut out.  You can also cut off the top half (between the card and the tags) leaving 1/4 inch or less border and fold the card in half.  I cut around the picture and cut the black off mine, then I adhered my balloon picture to another piece of colored cardstock and then to a white card I made to fit. I adhered my tags to the same colored cardstock that I used on the card. I cut out the banner and attached it with foam squares to the balloon. I cut out the hearts and attached them to the tags with foam squares. I also added seam binding ribbons, bakers twine and used a silver glitter gel pen to highlight the clouds, banner and hearts.

I have also included a printable that already has the banner on the balloon, so that if you choose, you
can skip the steps of cutting out the banner and hearts and adhering them separately.
