Hello all! Sorry this post is so late! I have just now finished a card I've worked on for the past two days. I'm really hoping now that my DH doesn't look at my blog as this is his for Valentine's.
I wanted to make something extra special for him as we probably would not have much of a V-Day since I'm scheduled to work that day. When I saw this tutorial at Elsie's blog, I knew it would be perfect for a mini-card album. Thanks, Siljie!
You fold the pages together to 'close' the card. And each time the recipient 'opens' the page..there's another page right after it. Cute! Really easy too! You can even put a gift card at the end, in the center!
And then, what's perfect is that the TE Cuppie Love Scenes stamps depict exactly what my hubby and I do on our dates!
The supplies I used are mostly from the TE Valentine Key Ingredients. I, then, added some Japanese masking tape, used white opaque pen, American Crafts brads, and Martha Stewart twine.
My DH started out as friends. We used to go biking together (even mountain biking! Yes, I used to do that!!). Then we'd hang out after on the couch and watch TV. One thing led to another. He kissed me (although he claims I made the moves on him first..HA!). And BOOM, we've been inseperable since!
Now you all know how much I LOVE watching movies. Well, there used to be a time, before marriage and a baby, when we would go out and see the latest flick every week. So this scene is perfect!! It's actually my fave of the four! And the sentiment: "You're my Happy Ending.." *sighs* I know, I can be really corny!!
And BOY! Do we like to go out to eat! This reminds me of how we always go to Olive Garden.
And last but not least, I've always wanted to do a hot air balloon ride, especially the one overlooking Napa Wine Country. This is on our to-do list. And don't you just love this sentiment!?
Anyway, thanks for visiting today! I wasn't completely happy with how I took these pics so here are different views that show all of the different pages:
