Free Printable: Tandem Bike Valentines Day Card

I just realized it's been a while since I shared a free printable card! I've been crushing on tandem bikes lately, and here's a card I made you can download and print to give to your special someone this Valentines Day. 

Download the printable and print it onto any letter-sized cardstock. My go-to color is kraft brown cardstock, but this looks great on white too - specially if you do some watercolor edges. Now I'm not great with watercolor prints, but I think this turned out juuuust right. 

I absolutely love the saying on this card - it's precisely how I feel these days. If you don't know, my hubby and I had a long distance relationship prior to getting married, and now that we're together, everything seems to be so much better.

It's a pretty simple design - but hey, sometimes being simple is better, right? Hope you like this print, and if you do - don't hesitate to let me know in the comments! I'd love to hear from you guys. Have fun making your card!

DIY: Easy Heart Earrings

Sometimes you just need an easy craft for the day - I've said that many times on the blog, and yes, I stick to it. Sometimes you don't need anything complicated, just a one-two-three step project that will tide your DIY cravings until the next opportunity of crafting. Here's an easy craft idea - heart earring studs! I made these from my gigantic collection of vintage buttons but you can easily get them at any craft store or sewing store. Ready? here we go!

  • Heart buttons
  • Wire cutters
  • Metallic sharpie
  • E6000
  • Earring studs (4 mm - 6mm)

First off, choose your buttons. Can I take a moment to show you these cute heart buttons I have? I got them really cheap along with other buttons at a local antique/thrift store. If you don't have any of these, it's easy to pop into any craft or sewing store and get a pair of gold heart-shaped buttons.

It's basically the same as my Vintage Button Pendant tutorial - just cut off the back hook like so with your wire cutter. 

Fill in the back with a metallic sharpie if it's plastic - and then stick onto your earring posts with some E6000 glue. 

Wait for that to dry and you are done! Isn't it easy?

They're simple enough to wear not only for Valentine's Day but any day of the year - I love me some heart studs so I'll definitely be wearing this pair a lot!

Do you think heart studs are girly or just girly enough for Valentines Day? Sound off in the comments, and have a lovely day!

8-bit Heart Hairpins at Live Craft Love

All of you guys know how I love my hair accessories and how I love geeky things. I have made a couple of 8 bit items in these past years and featured it on the blog, such as these 8-bit heart sweets box for Valentines, and these Pacman + Ghost couple shirts. This time around, I played with some perler beads to make these cute 8-bit hearts as my contributor post for Live Craft Love - who knew they were so easy (and therapeutic) to do?!

AND YES - I have short hair! I haven't had this short hair in a veeeerryyy long time. It was an accident to have it cut this short, but well, what can you do? At least these hairpins look good :)

Well - what are you waiting for? Make your own by following the tutorial on Live Craft Love! Go there by clicking any of the photos above or the link below - happy crafting, friends. :)
