My parents used to run several Hallmark stores in our area. All growing up, Valentine’s Day was a big day for us to pick out the cards that said just the right thing for each sibling. We would swap them at the dinner table and read the encouraging & loving words, that were sometimes too hard to say the other 364 days of the year.
Since they sold their last store a few years ago, we started making our own cards. Card making has become an even more valuable tradition! All the ladies get together in every free moment we have for a whole week, sharing products and ideas, and making memories together. It is so rewarding to create something, know that it’s from the heart, and delivered to build each other up.
For anyone who makes their own Valentine’s, I thought I would post a sampling of mine this year to inspire you! For a lot of them, I used the same basic structure, but used different papers, twine, and images.
