For Your Valentine

Valentine’s day is right around the corner. I’m a huge fan of flowers and dark chocolate, but one thing I look forward to each year is getting a sweet card from Mr. Husband.

Show your love this holiday with a pretty card for your sweetheart or BFF.  There are so many fresh and lovely designs to be found, and I promise they’ll make your loved one smile. Here are a few of my favorites…

Custom Monogrammed Stationery

Last month, one of my fabulously creative friends asked me to create stationery for her mom and two sisters. It wasn’t something I’d done before, but I was so inspired by her ideas and couldn’t wait to get started.

Kathryn (a classy Southern girl) asked for monograms in calligraphy. So perfect. I did some research and we decided on colorful monogrammed note cards and notepads. But after we got started, she came up with a brilliant addition: custom rubber stamps so their charming little monograms can be pressed wherever they wish. Adorable!

I adore how they turned out. I can’t wait to make and gift a few of my own… and perhaps make one for myself as well! :)
