Valentines Décor (Free Printable sign And Banner)

I decorated for Valentines around the middle of January. I know some may think I’m crazy, but here we are, two days away from Valentines Day and I’m glad I got to enjoy it since it will be over before we know it! I created the printable sign below. I love the saying. I also created the triangles with hearts in them and made a banner. And, because I can’t leave well enough alone, I put glue inside the hearts and added red glitter. Glitter makes everything better.

I made these crepe paper flowers glued to balls a couple of years ago. You can see above the white part of the balls is showing. I didn’t complete the whole ball. One because it was tedious. And two because it was easier to put them in jars like this. I had planned to put something inside the jar, but then I sort of liked it just as it was.

I also finally got around to cutting out pieces of tulle and putting them on Christmas lights. I have been wanting to do this for the past two Christmases, but never had time, so I thought they would be just as cute with Valentines décor. I bought that little box at Joanne Fabric and painted it white and distressed it.

I created the signs to be printed off on 8.5×11 inch paper, but the box around them is an 8×10 so that you can frame it. If you want to go even fancier, you can cut around the scalloped scroll and add it to something else! Click on the title or the picture to download and print.

The Best Way To Spread Christmas Cheer Printable (16 of 17)

Buddy the Elf said it best. It’s one of our favorite movies. Every year we decorate the house the weekend after Thanksgiving and then settle in to watch ‘Elf’. It’s funny. EVERY. TIME. I thought this print would be fun to add to our decorations this year. And lucky for you I designed an 8×10 and 11×14 for you to print as well (It will not be scalloped like above).

This is one of those projects that I was hoping to share with you BEFORE Valentine’s Day but simply ran out of time! And really, we should be spreading the love on more than one day a year. so now you can just extend your mushy gushy sentimental feelings on into March!

I have seen a couple of these floating around on Pinterest so I asked Jenny if she would whip up a couple for our Plum Adorable friends and she got right on it! She is awesome like that!

For years, I have written on our bathroom mirror in lipstick when I wanted to leave my hubby a cute little note or left a post it note on the door or wrote with soap on our shower door- I like to leave little notes! Probably because I REALLY like to GET little notes!

These are great because all you need are:

A Frame

Our Adorable Printable

A Dry Erase Marker

Your Imagination!!

I found my frame for $3 at Wal-Mart and added some rosettes that were left over from my Valentine Wreaths, here and here. And I even had left over pearls from Christmas time to embellish with too! I downloaded and printed out our printable and here you go!

Scrabble Tile Pendant tutorial {Free Initial Printable}

 

scrabble (1 of 2)

I originally started making these for Valentine’s Day, but things got so busy that week that I never got around to posting this. So, I decided to create something fun to wear on St. Patrick’s Day.

These are very simple to make. And you can print these initials I designed and use whatever one you’d like.

scrabble (2 of 8)

What you need:

~Free ‘Initials’ printable (below)

~Glossy Accents/Diamond Glaze (found at craft stores)

~Glitter Glue (optional)

~Scrabble Tiles (can buy in bulk at craft stores)

~E-6000 Glue or Superglue

~Glue Tape Runner or Tacky Glue

~Mod Podge

~Silver Bail (found in the jewelry section at craft stores)

How to make:

1. Download and print the free printable initials below. Cut out the initials you would like to use.

2. Take a scrabble tile and line it up with the initial. You will need to cut it a bit to match it completely to the scrabble tile as they are all slightly different sizes.

3. Glue the paper onto the tile with a glue runner or tacky glue. Press it down hard so that it sticks on well.

4. If you’d like to add some glitter at this point, dab some glitter glue to embellish the shamrock or hearts.

5. Once the glitter is dry then you could Mod Podge over the paper to seal it. (I actually skipped this step.)

6. When everything is completely dry then take your glossy accents (or Diamond Glaze) and follow the directions on the bottle by putting a layer on the tile. It should not run over the edges even thought it seems like it might.

7. Once it’s dried completely add the silver bail to the back. Put it on a chain for your kiddos to wear on St. Patty’s Day or whenever they’d like!

Hey guys! This is Jess! When I saw Jenny’s adorable Scrabble Tile Necklaces, I got really excited because I have done these before in the past and REALLY LOVE this craft! It is super easy and really cute. When I made my first one, it was at MOPS and the necklace I made was for my daughter Kaylee, she was 4 at the time. She STILL has it and treasures it (She is only 5 now, it’s not like YEARS have passed in between but for a 4 year old to hold onto something, especially my daughter who loses EVERYTHING, it is surprising that this necklace is still being worn and in its original form!). So I thought I would share it with you. And the great thing is, you can not only use Jenny’s stinkin’ ADORABLE initials that she provided but you can also use photos (granted they would have to be small, like the little proof print sheets you get at Costco or Shutterfly when you order your prints) or just use scrapbook paper and cut out a design you like! This is Kaylee’s Necklace below, I did the same steps as Jenny, just used a scrap of scrapbook paper for the butterfly and cut it to size.

fan {tache} Tic Valentines Cards–Free Printable

Even though Valentine’s Day is still a month away, I know you are being tempted in every store to purchase your cards now!  So, I thought it would be fun to create a unique card for you to print yourself.  I don’t know what it is about all the silly mustaches lately, but they do make me smile.

Mustache Valentine Cards

Attach a sucker or other piece of candy under the mustache. If you wanna get crazy you could cut out the mustache, attach it to the leftover sucker stick (we cut the candy part off) and use it as a mustache prop!

I love this kid!

A minor obsession…

So Jenny and I have had a bit of a minor obsession going lately… other than Pinterest or blogging that is! We are a teeny tiny bit addicted to rosettes. Remember the adorable rosette bookmark that Jenny made for our first post? (You can find it here.) Well, it all started with headbands for me, (which Kim and I taught our whole MOPS group to make last year), then I moved on to barrettes, then to putting them on wreaths and necklaces and then I found a very practical use for them at our church office! The reception desk needed a pen holder and I knew just what to add to that pen holder, rosettes!!!! And it cost me absolutely NOTHING to make since I had all the necessary items at home! You have never seen a soup can look this good ladies!!!!

 

I started with an empty, clean and dry soup can, some extra scrap paper that I had lying around and a few rosettes left over from my previous rosette making session. Oh and some hot glue to hold it all together!

And I must first apologize for the pictures here! They are not the best (remember I am the one who has yet to take her camera off the auto settings!) and I took these in a hurry.


 

Super cheap, super easy and super cute (if I do say so myself!) ~JESS

Fall is in the Air

Well it doesn’t actually feel like fall here in the Northwest today….

It is 80 degrees which is VERY warm for a late September day up here. I am almost sad that I took down all my Summer decor. But seeing my fall decor makes me excited for the leaves to change, for days with chili cooking away in the crock pot and for some caramel apple cider (since I don’t drink coffee!! and yes I know that is weird!)

Jenny shared her adorable fall décor a few days ago and blessed you all with a couple of her awesome free printables! So I am going to share my fall décor ideas with you too and a printable from another crafty blog out there.

 

This is my piano in my formal living room (the room that the kids can’t play in, on top of the piano that no one knows how to play yet! At least it looks pretty and provides a great place for my fall décor to be displayed! Seriously, we plan on someone learning to play the piano at some point.) The adorable Autumn Blessings printable can be found right here on our blog. Thanks Jenny!!

 

 

This is our mantle over our TV unit in our family room. The fall printable that you see was from Simply Sweet Home’s blog and can be found here. And the “Countdown to Candy” blocks were from a tutorial post I saw over a year ago at How Does She and can be seen here. They no longer have the tutorial up but I think you can still buy pre-made kits for them. My kids LOVE countdown blocks! We have made them for other holidays and events too, like for baby shower gifts or birthdays.
