Valentine's Day is almost here! Are you making some sweet treats for your loves? You know I love making gifts for the kids teachers, as a little thank you for the amazing job they do...this year I altered some 2 1/2 x 8 inch notepads and pens with a love theme...
I think digi stamps are becoming one of my favorite materials to work with, and I am having a lot of fun working on my coloring skills using Copic Sketch markers...I think they are getting better each time. These adorable sock monkey stamps are from Whimsiedoodles here. I love that she has a variety of stamps and sets that come up matching sentiments, like this "Sock it to me" one...super cute!
To cover the pads, I used a My Mind's Eye "Love Me" 6 x 6 paper pad and red and blue cardstock. I was able to use up some ribbon and twine stash, left over from Christmas. But, I needed some more ribbon and just didn't have what I wanted. Instead of going to the store, I created my own! I've seen lots of hand-stamped ribbon, so I gave it a whirl. I stamped red hearts with Tim Holt distress ink in Fired Brick onto this canvas ribbon for a great coordinating ribbon. Do you make your own embellishments?
Happy Valentine crafting and thanks for stopping by!
