Valentines for Valentine's Day!!!

I love using my StoryBook Creator Software to make quick, fun projects! This is an easy, affordable, and intuitive program designed just for people who love scrapbooking... and especially for those who don't! And it is the only program that comes with a personal assistant... me!

While the program lets you design album pages and hardcover StoryBooks, I use it for flyers, cards, and anytime I wants some quick & cute graphics. Hmm... I even used it to rearrange furniture, but that is another post! My middle-schooler has been using it for his school projects this year. It really is easy to use! I plan to dedicate future posts to some fun tips and how-to's with StoryBook Creator.

This week I held a Valentine workshop to help moms and kids design the cutest cards in class. I am going to show off the cards my kids helped me design for them. All of the artwork came from digital art downloads for StoryBook Creator from Creative Memories.

Abbie picked out the background paper, embellishments and quote. She directed the placement -- I did the work, but she really designed it. Her little 2"x3" card got a little crowded with everything on it, but she was happy with the end result! (Click on the image to enlarge if you want!)

Jacob was more hands off in the process of designing his card. I gave him a choice of Disney characters. He preferred Pooh and friends. It was his naptime, so he left the designing to me. Fortunately, when he woke up, he approved!

These little cards just took a few minutes each to design. They are printed just like regular photos. Aren't they fun??!! I am sure no one else in their classes will have Valentines like these. Want your own custom cards?

Greetings womanhood!

What an encouragement you are to me. Don't think for a second that the Lord is not totally holding y'all up.

And y'all have been so very precious to give all the glory to Him.

He will never leave you or forsake you. When you really live that and KNOW it as you said, His peace that surpasses all understanding truly comes.

When you fall, as all of us humans will, there are so many of us ready to lift you up!

Thank you for giving us the privilege to do so!

Blessings all over you and your family!
