Valentine's: Chalkboard & Journal Cards



Hello all! I'm here with a special Sunday post just because I wanted to show you my Valentine's Day Chalkboard and some journal cards I made for the special day.

For this month's chalkboard I actually just doodled a design on 8.5x11 paper and drew it on the chalkboard. So this is probably my most free form chalkboard yet. I usually take ideas from pinterest or type something up in Photoshop, but I think I was being a bit lazy and just wanted to get it done. Take a look at last year's Valentine's Chalkboard here. I think I like this years better.


Here are some different "journal cards" I made with my new set of Journal Card Templates. I needed some Valentine's Cards and these worked perfectly. I used kits from Scrap Orchard (more details below) and printed them at Persnickety Prints. They have a journal card printing option that I love. They are perfect for non-photo prints. You can even have them cut the corners to be rounded. I opted to do it myself on one of the cards since I have a nifty corner rounder cutter.


I made this for the Grandparents and such. It was the most recent (decent) photo I could find of all 4 of my kids together...I really need to work on that.

 Then I made this for my kids to give to a few of their friends. We'll probably tape some candy to the back or something. Can you tell that I've really thought through this? Not really, I'm always sort of winging it.

Then I made these to take to our local nursing home and pass out. We might tape something to the back of these to...just to get the girls more involved.

Amber Shawn and Tinkled Pink Design have these awesome coupons in their store, and I ordered some 3x4 prints of these for my hubby to give to our girls on Valentine's Day. They'll get one special lunch date with Daddy.
