Happy Valentine's Day

I hope you have a beautiful weekend surrounded by loved ones. I will be having dinner with my honey and some friends tomorrow night. I even baked some Tahitian Coconut Bread tonight as my dinner party contribution. Yum! (Richard couldn't resist the smell so he already had some...)

Have you worked on Valentine's Day crafts or scrappy projects? I've had some fun this year creating a card, a little coupon book and one of my most favorite mini albums ever!

This is a little coupon book that I made for Richard. Cute and very simple. Just a little extra something that I think he will enjoy... (sorry for the really bad photos, but I was too tired to re-shoot these!)





I downloaded the free PDF from Shabby Chic Crafts to create the coupons, and the circle love accents were designed by Ali Edwards for Designer Digitals.

Have you ever visited The Black Apple blog? Such eye candy! I love her prints and other crafty creations. I found a download on her blog from 2008 with these cute little girl prints inside a heart... Love it! I printed it out, used spray adhesive to adhere it to one of my chartreuse square cards from Archiver's and voila! Easy and so cute.



I haven't taken photos of this year's mini album yet (made with cardboard covers!), so let me go ahead and share with you the album I created last year using a Melissa Frances heart album that I took apart and altered... I started with a dedication page and then I created a spread for every year we've been together (2003-2008).











Thanks for stopping by... Peace and happy scrapping...

xoxo,
Vanessa

I love the mini!...and man I totally suck as a Valentine...the coupon booklet was a good idea. My poor hubby got a valentine cut from construction paper...not even real scrapbooking paper, heehee :)
