Love is in the air!! It’s almost valentine’s day! I absolutely love Valentine’s day. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t love the jumped up prices on my favourite restaurants or the crazy eyed teddy bears but I LOVE the buzziness, the flowers: that’s right – even if they’re not mine I love seeing people clutching roses, flower deliveries at work and shops bursting with colour! (…of course if a certain someone wants to get me flowers.. ahem.. that would be A-OK.. but you know… I’m just mega breezy about the whole thing…ahem). I love the romantic dates people plan, the GALentines get-togethers with your best ladies and the excellent excuse to watch classic Rom-Coms while drinking champagne…for a whole weekend.. that’s a thing right?
Crafters tend to go a little bit mental at the first sniff of Valentine’s – there are so many printables, quick makes, decorations and DIYs linked into this holiday that range from soppy to ironic, cute to comedy and chic to beautifully homemade. Here are a few of my faves:
1. Heart Shaped Tea Bags from Her Imajination
2. Beautiful love message pillows from Seeds and Stitches/The Making Home
3. Valentine’s Cake Pops (YUM) from Hobbycraft
4. Colourful Notecard Printables from Paper & Stitch
5. 3D paper hearts wall art from How About Orange
To infuse a little of my own Valentines love into the DIY mix I’ve created this simple tutorial for a stamped loveheart card for AskHerFriends. It will take you about half an hour tops and it’s a great chance to whack on some classic love hits (how deep is YOUR love) and indulge in some heartfelt making. Head over to see the tutorial now!
