Making Valentines this year?

It's easy and fun and a nice surprise for the recipients--and, if you're like me, if I don't get Christmas cards sent, I send out Valentines instead!  Super simple with a square cut collage image and a "Happy Valentine's Day," or complex and frou frou with every embellishment under the sun, any style of Valentine is a great way to say "I care about you."

Here are a few Valentines I've made in years past, and you know Altered Pages is replete with goods for making them all:

An Irish Miss Valentine

These Valentines are created on tags
Just a few Altered Pages Valentine goodies:
Shiny German Scrap is always a rich addition
Trims, Twines, and Tapes(I'm particularly fond of the shiny foil tape and the baker's twine.)
These Cute pink brads in all shapes
Of course, all kinds of gorgeous Valentine Collage Sheets! But don't overlook the Collage by Color section, and the wide variety of  Food Collage pages.  What does your Valentine like? Chocolate? Coffee? Wine?
Lots of fun stamps, and plenty of inks to go with them.

I particularly like to tuck Valentines into glassine bags like the pic below, or vibrant red Chinese envelopes.
Add a square cut collage image--easy and pretty!

Happy Valentine-ing to you!


  1. All adorable and some are available as kits too! THANKS Trisha

  2. The valentines in the glassine bags are my favorite! Great job!
