Kiddos Valentine Tags/Cards

It's that time of year, and my time honored tradition of making the kids valentine cards.  Sadly I didn't take a photo of last years cards, but this year I have.  I will have to start doing this each year I make them to show the progress of my growth as a paper crafter... This years is definitely a step up from last year by far... A shame I can't show you the difference.  Well here's what the kids are passing out this year:

Here are the supplies I used:

PAPER: PTI Vintage Cream, PTI Pure Poppy

INK: Memento Tuxedo Black

ACCESSORIES: Red/Gold Ribbon, PTI Vintage Button Holiday Mix, Aleen's Tacky Glue, PTI Tag Sale #1 die, Exacto Corner Punch

STAMPS: PTI Holiday Button Bits, PTI Everyday Button Bits

A little trick:  I took the bulb string stamp from Holiday Button Bits and turned it upside down to make the lollipop sticks... Isn't that awesome!!!!  Then the sentiment from Everyday Button Bits fit perfectly with the image I was trying to create, and of course the buttons as the lollipops themselves!  They can't wait to pass these out!!

Thanks for looking!!! 



  1. That is such a smart idea on how to get another use out of that stamp. Great job.

  2. What fab tags. I don't have any of the button sets. When I see cleer creations like yours I totally wonder why? One day. The tag embossing is pretty neat too. So well done.

  3. Very cool idea, Kathie! Love that you made them lollipops. They turned out great!
