Hi everyone, it’s Brooke here with some fun Valentine’s Day ideas—I always love Valentine’s Day crafts and have seen so many awesome ideas here and around the www. So I’m really excited about my kids’ valentines this year because it was so much fun to make them!! Each year I like to ask them what kind of valentines they want to make and give out to their friends. I’m a weirdo and like to design them myself and get creative with them. My son Brandon and I thought about making the cute iPod one that I’ve seen all over the internet, but then thinking about how much he loves Daddy’s iPhone, we decided to go in that direction instead. Plus I haven’t seen this idea ANYWHERE, so I knew it would be unique. For my daughter Annie’s valentines, she just loves Fancy Nancy and chose that for her theme. So we decided to do something fun with that. I’ll chat a little bit about each of the iPhone Valentines and Fancy Nancy Valentines now!
I love Photoshop. I LOVE how this turned out. I want to pass these out to MY friends. I used some stock photos and took photos of my iTouch for the graphics and shape of the phone and then added some other embellishments. Then I’m a nerd and made it the “Brandon” network, the time of 2:14 pm (ha ha) and made sure the calendar said “February 14.” It’s all about the details, people! I love how it’s personalized. We printed them at Costco and trimmed them up and put them on those boxes of Sweethearts. Brandon was SO excited to pass his very own iPhone valentines out to his friends!!
A FANCY Valentine
