Be Mine: A Valentine-Inspired Design & Mini Craft Project

I feel like I say this about every holiday, but Valentine’s Day really is one of my favorite holidays – maybe it’s all the pink, maybe because I love giving and receiving Valentine’s. I dressed up as Cupid for Halloween in college. Before she even turned one, my daughter was already an angel AND cupid (I’m a sucker for winged costumes). I’m sensing a pattern here . . .

In honor of the holiday, I designed this sweet invitation set below. There’s a photo version . . .

and simpler pink and red stripes.

I can’t believe the pictures from this photo session were only a year ago. My husband was out of town for the weekend, so my daughter and I had a photo session at our little apartment. My favorites are below.

Baby Valentine Photos

I used the photos for bookmark valentines we sent to our family last year, which were quite a hit. I designed them, but anyone could lay them out in MSWord. FedEx printed them, then I cut them out and glued them to cardstock.

Not sure what I’ll be doing this year. It’s quickly approaching, too!!

Any thoughts? Are you planning on making Valentines for your loved ones or hosting a Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) party?

      1. Awww! I understand completely. The design concept is what matters. I was thinking of possibly throwing a ‘galentines day’ party. Do you happen to have invites designed for something like that on your Etsy shop?
