Happy Valentine's Day

Love is in the air.  E was so excited about Valentine's Day.  She said tonight is like Valentine's Eve.  She was sad that it is only one day a year.  Who can blame her?  A holiday with her favorites... pink, hearts and chocolate!  Her school does homemade valentines.  This year we took a group picture of her class and then put it through her favorite machine... the Cuttlebug.  She couldn't do it herself this time since we were using a cutting die so next time her projects will be embossing only with that machine.
The project was simple.  We glued the pictures on cardstock and then glued her sentiment on the back and then ran it through the Cuttlebug with the puzzle maker die.  She then put all the pieces in a snack bag.  We stapled a topper on and then the real fun for her began.  She got to stamp and sticker all she wanted...front and back!  I can't wait to see what Valentines she comes home with in her bag.

Her teachers got a slider gift card.(I first learned about slider cards from Robyn.)

  2. Personalized, thoughtful gifts have no price tag. You made a
    "heart filled" gift that was unique to her class. I
    Absolutely loved the idea and how you carried
    It off. Are you going to post instructions for making
    The slider gift card? Love to you!

  6. Ok had to come back and tell you getting my hands on one of these puzzle dies became an obsession for me after seeing this post :) I couldn't find it at any of our craft stores/sections. On Ebay people want a lot for one, but I finally found them at Joanns online and they were having a sale, woo hoo, just got the shipping confirmation :) Thanks for featuring another thing I 'had to' have!
