Carrick’s First Fiesta!

Jack and I had such a fun time celebrating his nephew’s first birthday in March! It was a fiesta robot theme, and I just wanted to share his mommy Melissa’s great decor!

And here is the card I made him next to his tiny first cake (which he demolished!)

Valentine Puns

I love a good pun, so when I found cute rubber ducks at Target, I knew I had to incorporate them into some candy free Valentines!

I used a sharpie to do some fake calligraphy! It is super simple; all you do is write out a word in cursive, and then add volume to certain sections. I love pairing fancier lettering with something more casual like all caps!

To hold the duckies in place, I taped them to the card and then put washi tape over them for a fun (and sort of functional) adhesive.

Another really easy idea is to cover a card in stickers and write “Let’s Stick Together” or “I’m Stuck On You”. Simple and clever!

I used a bunch of Lisa Frank stickers that I had from a sticker book to make super girly cards. They could also be perfect for Galentine’s Day cards!

And if you still want more ideas, CRAFT has a ton of non candy Valentines for kids and adults!
