Happy Valentines Day!

I used a CuttleBug embossing strip to emboss the back of the envelopes.
I used my Cricut and the Celebrations Cartridge to make the scallops and circles for the cards.
Happy Valentines Day! One of my daughters favorite teachers, Mrs. Muzslay, is taking a group of girls to the Revolve Tour. It is a wonderful annual conference that comes to town that is geared for Tweens and Teenage girls. It shares the message of True Love Waits, What guys think and who you are in Christ. But it is done in a manner that is energetic, meaningful and age appropriate. Imagine being in an area with over 20 thousand girls, all worshipping and praising His name. There are four adults going also. But I didn't know the exact number of girls going until yesterday afternoon. We are taking nine girls.
So yesterday evening I ran around Hobby Lobby, Joanns and Walmart getting all the goodies. I used DCWV, All Dressed Up, stack to alter the composition books. They are not typically what I would use but I think the girls like all the black/pink/silver motif. I then went to Joanns and picked up the CuttleBug embossing folder for the trim and some cardstock. At Walmart I got the bags and the candy. I didn't start making anything until 11PM last night. I am tired.

So I spent last night...I mean all night, altering nine composition books, making nine cards and nine goodie bags. I used these fabulous stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. They are called Sweet Jesus . (Thank you Aimeslee for sharing this company with me.) If you click the hyperlink, you will recognize the cards and the Hershey Kisses bags. They are perfect little stamps that can be used all year long. I even used one on the journal, "Nuggets of Wisdom". I had planned to also make a smaller books that they can carry in their purse as a reminder of this weekend. But it is almost 9 am and I need some sleep before tonight's Revolve Tour.

Happy Valentines Day! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Single, married, Significant Other... no matter what, we are not alone on Valentines Day. There is One that always loves us.


  1. these are precious.I love the idea of the conference, dd also read the book "And the Bride Wore White" as a teen, and I think it helped her in her determenation to wait.(darn,can't figure out the vowel after the m..)I overheard her recently while talking to my sis..she told her a big reason she remained a virgin was that she was surrounded by "other like minded girls".  So, hopefully this conference will help your girls develop  friendships like that...

  2. Love the projects!
    We took our girls from youth group to Revolve in November. Such a fabulous weekend to build them up and encourage them in their walk.

    Hope they have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Great Job on your projects, they are awesome and the girls will cherish them! hugs!
