Valentine pretties from Crafty Secrets

Today I'm sharing some fun things made with the New Vintage Valentine Kit from Crafty Secrets.     I cant believe all the great stuff you get in this download kit.
This post has been updated with a new current link to a Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Digital Valentine Kit available here  

 You can see it all HERE in this post on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog.  But here's a few little peeks.

Okay... so here's some things I've done with the kit over the last few days:)

I'll post more photos of the banner pieces towards the bottom of this post.  I used the AccuCut die  P1317CSJB  Pennant Flag  and papers and images from the NEW $5.00 Vintage Valentine Downloadable Kit 

So many adorable tags too.

I used the papers and images to create these easy candy bar wrappers.

Being able to print things off the size you want them.. makes projects like this re-vamped container super easy.

I have lots more projects to share over the next few days, so instead of drowning you in them all at once I'll just show you some closer photos of the banner pieces for now.  It was fun to dig threw my buttons, rick rack and ribbon pieces to embellish it. ( Oh.. had some fun stitching also:)

I see now just how therapeutic "creating" can be these last couple of days.  I wondered from time to time if/when I would feel like coming back in my room to "create"... but it has been so good for me.  There is a big difference between allowing yourself to grieve, and just making yourself physically sick from "thinking" about things too much.  The last two weeks have given us alot to deal with. It's been tough.  About the time you think it's getting better, the sadness comes again.  I can see there are just going to be days like that.  But... I'm thankful that when I dont feel like talking , and I dont want to cry anymore... coming to this room and spending time creating, keeps my mind busy.  It's a good distraction.
So today... I'm thankful for that.

Thankyou to all of you!  Your kind words, emails, cards, ect have just touched me more than you know.
