Valentine’s Day Cards 2014

How many of you send out Valentine’s Day cards? We normally make Valentine’s Day Cards for my son’s preschool class and for family. You may remember the Interactive Valentine’s I made last year. The only time we have sent out Valentine’s Day cards was when my son was a baby, which was 4 years ago. We got his pictures taken at Picture People in the mall. Check them out…

I absolutely ADORE these pictures! We went back to get my daughter’s pictures taken 18 months later and the studio in the mall had closed down. We were so sad. I just have never attempted to take my kids pictures for Valentine’s Day because these above are so classic. UNTIL, Pear Tree Greetings contacted me and asked me to collaborate with them on Valentine’s Day cards. I was SUPER excited!  We actually created our Christmas Cards with Pear Tree Greetings, so this was a no brainer. I dressed my kids up in their “fancy clothes” and we went outside (disclaimer-this was before it got -20 degrees here). I love how the  pictures turned out….

I had a BLAST picking out Valentine’s Day Photo Cards from Pear Tree Greetings. They had too many great choices to choose from, so I went with three different ones.

I got this one in the Valentine’s Day Cards for Kids section. I dressed it up with twine and a lollipop that I added a mustache to. The brown box has chocolate covered caramel corn with valentine’s day sprinkles on it that we made. This one I am giving to my Great Uncle. The one below is for my Nana. I used some twine, mini clothespin, and felt heart stickers I got from JoAnn Fabrics. I think these ones are really cute because they can be used as a bookmark! Just the right size!!

Next up is the Glitter LOVE card. I like this card because it is more of a close-up plus I am a HUGE fan of glitter!

Last but not least is the banner card. I thought this one was fun because the banners actually look like they are hanging above them.

    Oh my goodness, this is so FUN Jill! Your children are so darn adorable!!! The pictures couldn’t be cuter:)
    I LOVE how you dressed up the little packages with the felt hearts, pictures and the mustache sucker-s0 fun!
    Its all so bright and cheerful! Fabulous idea!!! I think I need to grab by Granddaughter and go get her pics done for Valentine’s Day and surprise her Mommy and Daddy-thanks for the idea!
    My all time favorite Valentine card is when my hubby went in my craft room and make me a card and surprised me…and let me tell you, was I surprised!! I didn’t think he even knew how to ink the stamps, find where my papers were, etc. You should have seen the card……he must have used about 8-10 different sentiment stamps, mix and match of 4 diff papers….hehe, pretty funny but SO sweet!!
    Have a GREAT day!

    Oh my goodness, what a great opportunity you had! These are precious! What adorable cuties you have!

    I was born on Valentines Day and my dad always picked out a special Valentine birthday card and a separate Valentines Day card with a special message from him about how he was glad I was his forever Valentine! He passed away when I was 8 and I treasure the gesture so much more.

      Tammy- yes, I was so surprised and excited when I received the email from Pear Tree. Your Dad sounds like a really special guy! So sorry for your loss. It is nice to have the special memories of him though. Smiles, Jill
