"We’re CRAZY for you!" Valentine’s


Fancy that!!! I captured a photo of my two oldest while in their natural state!!!!

I loved this photo so much! Honestly! Who doesn’t have a photo like this! Use those crazy photos, or take a crazy picture of the kids and get to work on fun and playful Valentines!

What you’ll need:

  • A Crazy Picture of you, your kids, the fam, your pet!
  • Card Stock or a Ready to make Card set
  • Fabric
  • Wonder Under
  • Sewing machine

First Take your photo and add text! I use Photoshop but you can also use Photobucket or Picnik! Have them printed!

Next either cut your Card Stock to size or get your premade ready to use cards ready!

Find fun festive fabric and iron on Wonder Under to its back side!

Cut your fabric to a size that is smaller then the face of your card but larger then your photo! Remove the paper backing from the Wonder Under and iron it on to your card!

Lastly you’ll mount your photo on a complimentary card stock or scrapbook paper to create a colorful boarder. Then Position your photo onto the card and Zig Zag Stitch it in place!



A fun way to add a personal touch to a fun Holiday tradition!

    Your blog is a life saver I'm so excited to finally get some ideas I can use in my own life. Since SAHM of three under five I can use all the help I can get! ;)

    I do have a question… what kind of camera do you use? Your pics are so clear and I am looking for a new reliable camera and need some ideas on good ones? Thanks in advance!

    Oh, I love the hot pink paper one! I'm such a sucker for hot pink.

    What a super idea, to show your kids being crazy. What use does it serve you pretending they are perfect angels when you know full well you go to bed each night with one more nerve walking out the door taking a bit of your sanity as a souvenir?

    Follow me for a second, now everyone will actually believe you when you tell them that you dream of living in a bottle of wine not just for the health benefits but for the peace you are sure to find therein.

    Great idea.
