You Melt My Heart

Our local Fred Meyer seems to be taking an especially long time to clear out their Christmas stock this year. While Target has already salvaged theirs for over a week, I still see Christmas up on the shelves at the grocery store last Friday.  When I went there again after the weekend, Christmas things were almost gone and have been replaced by Valentines. I was pleasantly surprised. I love Valentines!

As it turned out, I wasn't the only person who was not expecting to see Valentines in Fred Meyers that day. The cashier who was helping me with my transaction was dismayed when she rang up my chocolates.

"I can't believe that they are already putting out Valentines!", she exclaimed. And she looked embarrassed as she leaned in and whispered,

"My tree is still up!".


Well, ready or not, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. It's less than a month away! It's okay if your tree is also still up (Shh!...I won't tell!), it's time to get your Valentines started.


I used to have so much fun putting together tons of goodie bags for my girls' classmates for Valentine's Day. Now that the kids are older, they prefer making their own Valentines for their friends. This only means that I now have more time to make more Valentine's Day cards. Yippee!

For today's shaped card, I'm using the new Yeti in Love cut set that LD had just released last week. Applying my usual method of welding various rectangles to the different offsets, I ended up with this:


I was going to use print-and-cut on the whole entire card base but it ended up being too heavy on the card front. So I decided to cut the white card base using a heavier cardstock (110lb Recollections paper from Michaels) and only print-and-cut out the colored card front. Since a letter-size page can fit two of the card fronts, I printed out and cut out two copies so I can make two cards. (The illustration below does not indicate it but I did also cut out two sets of the Yeti and the card base so as to make two cards.)


Here are the finished cards:
