Valentine's Day and I'm going to be in trouble!

Yeah so we agreed not to do Valentine's day this year. However, I kinda beat to my own drum and don't listen very well. Over the past few weeks, I have paid attention to all of my husband's belly aches and whines when it came to my crafting. Why? Because I combined those aches into one Valentine's set for him!

A few weeks ago I did a sample layout for DCWV's new February stack-a-holic challenge for this month. My husband starting whining because it has flowers on it and he's in the picture so no man should be on a page full of flowers.

Now two things happened when he was whining about this. 1. I put more flowers on the layout. 2. I picked out the pinkest, most glittery, girly paper I have in my stash to help "manify" that layout for him. Didn't work.

So taking the flower and girly inspiration from his belly aching, I formed a plan. I took the heart shaped box from Dreaming Tree and turned it into a ring box.
Now this man has had more wedding rings in the 14 years of our marriage than I have had any other kind of jewelry in the 18 years we've been together! Some of it isn't his fault, turns out he was allergic to the first two rings, and others well he just lost them.

To solve the issue of his allergy issue to his first two wedding rings, I switched him over to the silicone rings. The first one didn't fit and the second one he loved so much he lost it. He mentioned the other day that he should just get a multipack. Well that's what he gets then!
I switched out the bow on the top of the box for a flower, cause I know just how much he loves those. Then I added glitter to the pedals of the flower as well. For the inside of the box, I made a quick insert that comes out
Now I'm not a complete stinker. I did combine two of his loves in his gift. One his favorite color is red so with the help of Bazzill, I was able to use a few tones for this. Secondly he loves video games. The card is kind of based off of Zelda. At least the hearts and the font are.

  • Bazzill Cardstock
    • Red Hots (bottom half of box/background on card)
    • Phoenix (top half of box/sentiment on card)
