Valentine's Projects, Cards & a Layout

I had a lot of fun playing with Color Me Daisy's February kit making some simple cards and a couple of gift wrapping projects for Valentine's day. I usually send out Valentine's cards to family with some updated pictures of the boys. I have been busy since going back to work so I had to try to knock out some cards pretty quickly. I made a few different versions of cards and then made a few of each to make them. I love my new scallop punch (if you can't tell from how much I used it for these cards. I also love the Basic Grey Bittersweet papers in the kit. Yum!

Here is the card I made for Mike. Again from the CMD February kit. I used my 3" & 2" scallop punches to layer the flower and bent the edges up and inked them.

After looking at the kids cards for Nicholas and Jackson I could not bring myself to pay $3 a card for their cards. So I whipped a couple of these with some scrap's. I think they are cuter than a Hallmark card. LOL!

I had seen a lot of these wrapped candy bars on other blogs. I thought they were so cute I made these for Mike for his gifts from me and the boys. I used a bunch of BG Bitterwseet scrap's to wrap these up and then made some cones with AC Romance paper. To wrap the I Tunes cards I wrapped up one attached to a Sweetheart's box with some of the scraps from the CMD Feb kit. and I hand cut a little envelope and scalloped the edges for the other card. Mike was pretty impressed with how his gifts were wrapped. It is nice to have a DH that is apprecative of what I make.

Last weekend I scrapped this page from the January Color Me Daisy kit. The journaling is about how just a couple of months after this picture was taken, Nicholas no longer wanted to drink from a bottle anymore. This is the last picture I have of me or Mike giving him a bottle. I am just glad he gave it up on his own and we didn't have to battle over it.
