iPhone Valentine and Fancy Nancy Valentine

by Brooke on February 12, 2010

“Be my iValentine.” {Brandon}
“Wishing you a FANCY Valentine’s Day!” {Annie}

So I’m really excited about the 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. We 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 Annie’s, she just loves Fancy Nancy and chose that for her theme, so we decided to do something fun with that. So I’ll chat a little bit about each of them individually 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!!

Brandon and I had a fun (messy)time putting it all together. Love that boy!

A FANCY Valentine

We love Fancy Nancy around here. I looked around and didn’t find any Fancy Nancy valentines anywhere so I came up with this idea just a few days ago, actually! I also made these in Photoshop, found a stock photo and changed it a tiny bit so that instead of the word “Nancy” it says “Fancy”. Printed at Costco and punched out with a 2.5 inch circle punch, then used pop dots adhesive to put the circles onto a 3 inch scallop circle.
I had Annie write her name on the back in her adorable little handwriting, then I hot glued a little loop of ribbon to hang from the candy necklace. After all, you need fancy jewelry to have a fancy Valentine’s Day. :)
Annie was super excited about her special valentines too. She loved helping me put them all together and had so much fun giving them to her buddies at preschool. Love that girl.

So there you have it! Our 2010 valentines. :)
Have a LOVELY weekend, friends!
