Quick and easy Valentines for the thrift shop...

As I have mentioned here before, I volunteer weekly at a local thrift shop. This year I decided to make some Valentines for them to sell. I really wasn't at all sure they would actually sell, but I thought it was worth a try. After all, every little bit they get they use to help people in the community.

Here are a couple of the Valentines I made:

Most of the Valentines I made (including this one) were small--3 1/2" X 5". For this one, I used a few die-cuts (the hearts are stacked with foam tape between each layer) and a single flat-backed gem. The sentiment was heat-embossed, using a stamp that came with a little Reflections Valentine kit.

The inside was sentiment (Hampton Art) was stamped, using my stamp positioner.

For this Valentine, I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the front of my card. Then I added a die-cut pink oval on which I had heat-embossed my Fiskars sentiment. The little heart/foliage die-cuts were actually part of a "thank you" die set, but I thought they worked perfectly here. Finally, I added some sparkle to the hearts.

The inside of this card was the same as the previous one.

While these cards were very simple, they still sold well. I donated 28 cards to the store, and I believe they all sold.

I wish all of you a

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are able to spend the day with those you love. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

How sweet - you are right every little bit helps. We take so many things for granted. Love both of the Valentines.
