Who says Valentine's Day has passed?

Not us here in my home. We've been feeling the love for quite some time now. And since Spring and Easter are going to sneak up on me pretty quickly, I figured I had better snap some pictures before I pull it all down. As you might see, I got pretty crafty for this holiday.

Here's the mantel:

Some paper lollies with wooden hearts sprinkled with German Glass Glitter:

A frame filled with an old Basic Grey calendar page (from a kit I bought) and a few Prima crystal embellishments:

I made the simple Happy Valentine's Day banner several years ago. The heart garland was made this year covering more wooden hearts (from Michaels) with various Valentine's papers (last year's Making Memories and Pink Paislee) and hot gluing them to some satin ribbon.

Crepe paper rosettes hot glued to the glass of this frame. The background patterned paper is set inside the frame. These rosettes are super easy to make. Just Google it.

I made this tin ages ago as a design team assigment for my local scrapbook store that closed last year. It uses an old S.E.I. paper line. Inside of it is an accordion folded string of papers with love quotes written. At some point I will go back and add pictures of my husband and I.

These tissue paper flowers were also really fun to make. Another thing where Google will give you several tutorials.

And in keeping with my annual tradition of making a Valentine's Day layout for my husband featuring each of our girls ...

I also made them cards (two days after Valentine's Day). My husband gets each girl their own card and signs it from him. So I make them a card from me. Time just got away from me but I was not going to let this excuse to share some words of love with them escape.

That's all I have. Now time to rip it all down and pack it away til next year. :(
