Good morning, and Happy Valentine's Day to you! I'm finally getting around to posting another Thingadailies, and today it's my Valentine's Day Card! This was a super easy card to make using some textured coloured paper from a paper pack (Craft Smith Wedding Neutrals - 70% off at Michaels!), and some patterned notecards I've had laying around for years and hadn't used.
I used a basic rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp to cut out the light pink textured paper for the background, and used the smaller rectangle die - also from Simon Says Stamp - to cut the patterend notecard. The sentiment (Stampourri) was stamped on some of the extra pink paper and cut out with a small square die from, yes, Simon Says Stamp. I used a heart punch to make three hearts from the extra pink paper. I stuck everything on dark kraft notecards, and voila! Three completed cards!
I also used a slightly darker pink from the paper pack that also coordinated with the pattered notecards and made three more cards, so I had six total to send out to friends. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and a great week! Cheers!
It's Sunday and for me that means cooking meals for the week. This week I'm baking some chicken breast, and trying a new recipe from HeartSmart Recipes magazine. It's called Pasta, Broccoli, and Red Bean Toss, and it looks amazing! I can't wait to try it! I hope you all are having a fantastic week! Cheers!
So it's February again, and it's the time for Thingadailies! It's like Horrordailies in October and Holidailies in December, but instead of writing a blog post every day (or trying to!), you make something everyday (or try to!). Now, I will probably only manage to make about five or six things this month, because I just don't have that kind of time. But it's fun to participate anyway, and I do love to see what other people create!
My first Thing is my February 2017 calendar page. I purchased two blank calendars from Top Notch Calendars so I could stamp designs for each month of this year, and make calendars for myself and my mom. For February I did a Valentine's Day-themed page using the Heart Ornament and Bow Ornament Hanger both from Stampa Barbara, and the "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment from Stampourri. It's a simple design, but I think it came out really nice.
I hope to do some more rubber stamping this month (there's at least one Valentine's card in the works!), but the majority of my "Things" might be food, as all I've been really into lately is cooking. That or photography. Does taking a picture count as a "Thing" for Thingadailies? No idea. How about making a list? I have Weetacon coming up, and I always have several lists going when I'm travelling. Well, hopefully I'll be able to find some other creative things to share this month! Have a great day! Cheers!
